MobileMag got their hands on an Archos 604 media player. While the unit scores 86/100, boasting a beautiful menu system, nice widescreen display and DRM support, the Archos falls short in some key categories. For instance, its PVR functions require the purchase of an additional $100 adapter, which also happens to be the only way you can get a real power cord if USB charging isn't your cup of tea. If you've created your own video folders, they get buried deep in the menu system. And the 30 gigs of storage seems scant for this generation of Archos players.

Still, the PMP looks pretty sweet and has a decent price for the quality at $320. Check out the video for a tour through the menu and keep your eyes peeled for Gizmodo's review, coming soon.
