Has anyone come across any UK sites that you can pre-order the Archos 604 on?
I am just about convinced to get one in place of my AV500.

There is supposed to be a 160GB model to follow at a later date.

160gb, I can imagine that being fairly pricey, I think I will just get the 30gb version and just organise it a bit more often on the PC.

Hi

I'm having to return my archos 500 as the 16x9 option does not work (crops headroom badly) and Archos have now admitted that they wont be fixing the firmware.

Does anyone know if the new 604 will record and replay true 16x9 with no cropping, also do you see a full size image whilst recording as opposed to the postage stamp size window on the 500?

Dunno if this link will help you.

Troiuble with the 604 is you gotta buy the DVR station to record from the TV. Surely they need to release a version whereby its as small as the 604, but without the need for a station.

I love its size as the 700/700TV is just too big.

The 504 model fills that gap with an option for 160GB HDD, but it's not as compact as the 604, and it's around £470 . The 504 40Gb model is about the same price though as the 604 at around £250.

Had been thinking about waiting for the 504, but the extra price, bigger size, and the fact that i've usually got my laptop / dvd nearby anyway doesn't merit it for me.
