The fellas over at InfoSync World puts the smack down on all who say portable media viewers are not a viable product category. They took the Archos AV700 for a ride, and found it to be sweet: the 7-inch screen with 262k colors blew them away, as did the large 100 GB storage space. They also liked the ability to store a wide variety of video and audio formats, and its ability to act as a Windows Media device. However, they didn't like the mediocre screen resolution of 480 x 234, a so-so battery life, and the level of technical expertise required to really make full use of the AV700. Despite all that, InfoSync still gives it a big thumbs up, and sticks their collective tongue out at the fictional-for-now video iPod.
