Comments about Archos 704-WiFi Portable Media Player:

This is a must have for movie buffs, digital photographers, and gadget collectors. I am a photographer, and this is one of the best purchases I have made in the last year. Not only can I use it to D/L my mem cards on the road and thus not needing to drag my laptop along, but I can also allow my clients to see their pictures on the spot. It also allows me to make slide shows that I can present to my clients in the comfort of their own homes, allowing me to offer more personalized services. I can even use it to access the web from my TV. All in all, I think this product is a must have for Pro and Semi Pro phographers, video enthusiasts, and even those who just like hi-Tech toys.
