Archos TV+ 250GB ReviewPosted on 2008-03-10 14:08:13 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The TV+ has a lot of potential and is certainly stacked with features. But it has too many shortcomings to be worth spending £250 on. It's not a particularly good media streamer. It's not an elegant alternative to Sky Plus or a decent twin-tuner DVR. Its on-demand content is as-yet limited, and its user interface - borrowed from the Archos PMPs - is clunky and unintuitive to use with a remote control.
What makes this all the more galling, however, is that to get full functionality out of the TV+ you have to buy, download and manually install a handful of extra plug-ins. And that, unfortunately, is the final nail in this product's coffin.
