    Archos' rise through the ranks of gadget purveyors has been heartening to see. Gadget historians will surely remember the company's first device, which was little more than a huge hard drive coupled with a tiny screen.

    The AV700 portable media player has been available for some time, but this version has another trick up its sleeve: it's been fitted with a digital TV tuner

    Archos 704 Mobile DVR review: Good old Archos. The world had pretty much forgotten its not-bad-actually personal media player, the AV500.Then Archos comes bounding back onto the market like some sort of hyperactive technology-providing spaniel

    PVRs are traditionally chunky set-top boxes, but Archos has come up with a revolutionary fix, a docking station that turns its portable media player into a fully-functioning personal video recorder - a sort of portable PVR, if you will

    MP3 players usually come in two flavours. The choice is between hard disk devices, with enough capacity to store an entire music collection, or smaller flash storage based players

    The AV 700 TV is the first Archos media player to offer integrated digital TV recording via dual digital terrestrial tuners. If you want to record from other sources you must invest in a separate TV 'pod' or travel kit

    Archos' new touch-screen, fourth-generation media player can surf the Web as well as display photos and play videos or music files. Is this enough to warrant an upgrade? First, let's look at the touch screen. It's fun and simple to use

    Decked out in uber-cool black-brushed aluminum, the Gmini 500 is a slightly 'cut-down' version of Archos' AV500. Having said that, the 30GB capacity of the 'base' AV500 has actually been expanded to 40GB for the Gmini

    The tablet-like AV700 - from Archos, the company that arguably initiated the portable media player revolution - is its first model to sport a 16:9 screen. And what a screen - it's 7in diagonally, has a 4:3 mode for older material and is matt-finished...

    Archos has added a new 40GB variant on its AV700 PMP to the market - the AV700 TV. It's exclusive to Dixons/Currys and takes the feature count of the original model even further by specifying UHF DVBT digital TV reception!

    Although recent iPods will play video, their screens are tiny and the format support is extremely restricted. The 30GB Archos 404 isn't quite as small, but it's around the same price and plays a heck of a lot more. Oh, and it's got a built-in 'camcorder'.

    If you're thinking of buying a personal media player (PMP), there are a multitude of the things out there, but Archos is a manufacturer you should give serious consideration, as its 404 PMP testifies

    Archos is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the PMP world and hopes to continue its fine form with this 30GB unit that counts a camcorder and 1.3 megapixel digital camera among its features.

    Depending on what your point of view is, a camcorder could be a dexterous recording device or a handy memory-snapper. The first will give you high-quality results, the second will give you fast results at a variable quality

    This portable video and music player may be the replacement for the much lauded AV500 device, but it actually has less in the way of features. The AV500 was a multi-talented gadget, as it could both play back and record video ...

    Archos' 504 is the world's first large-screen portable media player with a 160GB hard drive. It'll allow you to store an impressive 450 movies, which should be more than enough to keep even the most avid film enthusiast quiet
