      After my graduation my sister’s husband gave me an Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet.

      It’s touch-screen and you don’t need a stylus to manipulate it since it’s well calibrated.

      You can even lock the device similar to that of the ipod touch with a passcode as well.

      It’s quite similar to that of an ipod touch, the only difference is, it’s somewhat large (almost the size of your hand) compared to the ipod yet the memory is greater which is really a handy gadget whenever I plan to format my laptop.

      Mine is 250 gigabyte and it’s enough to store my entire data and this is the reason why I love this gadget the most.

      It can store almost anything from applications, files, music, movies and you can even place a flash game in it. I installed “The Impossible Quiz” and I’ve been playing it ever since


      with ease.

      There’s no problem in copying your data since all you have to do is do a simple drag and click and there you have it.

      There’s even an converter whenever you put movies in it. It automatically asks you to let Archos convert the file so that it can be compatible with the device.

      The downside is, you have to wait for 5 hours or less for the file to be converted.

      Internet is very vital that’s why we bring our laptops in places with wifi but with Archos around you don’t need to bring your laptop, you can use the internet in it. It can detect wifi similar to that of the laptop. It uses the browser Safari (same with that of Mozilla)

      Just type in your favorite website and you’ll be surfing in no time. It’s very useful especially when traveling.

      You can

      even adjust the browser size whether it be zoomed in or out, it’s all up to you.

      The downside about this is if you’re not used into typing using a touch screen it would take a long time to type a website.

      You can check your facebook, email and even watch youtube.

      I use this often to watch youtube since it can either be switched to full screen or not.

      Chat is also possible using Meebo but it depends on your internet connection.

      You can even download pictures from the net such as in photobucket, deviantart and etc.

      The best thing about this is you can view your saved pictures in slideshow mode, the transitions can also be set as well.

      You can zoom pictures as well by holding your finger onto the screen. You can zoom it out by tapping it twice.

      Another thing I really like about ...

      this gadget is its ability to provide you a wallpaper in the main menu. What’s good about it is that whenever you play your music, you can still see your wallpaper in the background.

      When it comes to music, it’s also very useful. You can store albums in it without worrying too much about memory. You can even complete the whole set of Dj Tiesto’s albums.

      It comes along with an earphone with “Archos” written on it and the sound quality is great.

      You can even adjust its equalizer for better sound quality.

      It’s user-friendly and you don’t need to install iTunes to put some music in it.

      You can watch movies here in HD too.

      You can also watch TV here too.

      You don’t have to worry about your battery running low for there is a battery dock which can be inserted readily in case

      of emergency.

      The charging usually takes 3-4 hours(The Archos) and another 3-4 hours for the battery dock alone which is almost 6-8 hours. You can charge it in the computer as well but it will take 8 hours (The Archos alone) so I very much recommend you charge it using the charger together with the battery dock.

      You can even insert a USB in it with the help of its battery dock.

      Another good thing about this product is you can read ebooks, documents and pdf files. I even used this as a handy textbook so there’s really no need to carry around a book to study.

      For me, the disadvantage about this product is: - It’s too large to fit in the pocket

      But overall, I highly recommend this product for those who love to travel. If you want an instant gadget, I recommend Archos 5.
