Next Generation PVR

If there's one thing I cannot live without on a long plane trip or when staying at a friend's house who has not provided me with a cable-equipped TV in my bedroom, it's entertainment. Call me high maintenance, but when Archos first debuted the Pocket Video Recorder, my prayers were answered. My life with Archos began with the purchase of a AV340 recorder. Despite it's bulkiness and lack of refinement, I was in a new world. Not only was I able to store vast volumes of music MP3s to take with me, I could also bring along my favorite TV shows and movies! When I was bored with listening to Annie Lennox, I could switch to a rerun of Friends! Soon to follow were lesser quality or lesser featured players, like the RCA Lyra.

Now comes the next generation recorder from Archos, the AV400 series. The improvements over the AV300 series are like a wish list come true: smaller form factor, removable battery, drop-in connection through a cradle, scheduling, availability in larger capacity models, external speaker, and (on certain models) a larger screen. So, if you're not already on the bandwagon and you, too, are the fidgety-when-flying type, take a closer look. This may just be your saving grace!
