Archosfans.com have posted 2 parts of their review. I will link them below and put the videos for each Part here if you don’t feel like going over to archosfans.com
IF you can read in french or don’t mind the weird english from babelfishing every page of the review, here’s a comprehensive review of Archos 5 in french:
From the above review, I garner the most important information of all: Playable codecs on the archos 5 (table below), it’s rather comprehensive, Oui = yes, non = no. Looks like H.264 HP is still not supported yet although there might be a glimmer of hope if archos get to work on the firmware since the ARM Cortex processor by Texas Instruments, used in the Archos 5, Archos 5G and Archos 7 is faster then the Intel Atom processor.
There should be many other reviews popping up the wild wild west soon but I’m won’t be updating this anytime soon due to schoolwork and stuff. Don’t even mention anime, KIV-ed series are multiplying like rabbits! So, are you still prepared to shelf out at least US$350 (excluding shipping) for the cheapest 60GB Archos 5 model?
