Re: HD Playback. Their current Archos 5 model supports HD playback on an external monitor. The built-in 5" LCD is only 800x480. I would guess they will be using the same screen since it is based on the 5.
Omg another fucking Archos product! Their new Archos 5/7 series is terrible with most shipped players being defective, hardware, software, and bug problems out the ass. Oh did I mention their customer service sucks?
I own the Archos 5 and love it, but I hate Archos. They make great products but do not back them up. I am returning mine now thanks to a defective LCD screen and if I go by other user's experiences then they will lie to me so that I must pay $180 for a new LCD screen on my $350 player!
