Archos specializes in portable storage, in particular, MP3 players with hard drives. We had a preview of them at the last CeBIT trade show in Hanover, Germany, but this is the real thing - Archos has just leapt a little technological barrier by offering a genuine hand-held device for digital video! The Jukebox Multimedia has a hard drive as well as a color LCD 237 x 234-pixel display screen. In addition to its video formats, Archos has invested in the future by choosing the MPEG 4 format, of which the most faithful emissary is none other than the DivX codec. In this article, we'll explain how it works and how to use this portable video player and its very exciting features.

From the design point of view, Archos has chosen to retain the profile of its previous MP3 players. So what you have is a small, metallic case with plastic reinforcements at the corners, a little bit like a shockproof watch. It is the depth of a pack of cigarettes, and one and a half times longer and wider. At 293 grams (just over 10 ounces), including the battery, it weighs almost the same as the Creative Labs Jukebox (which we reviewed here), which makes it easy to carry in a pocket. It is a pity that the styling is rather poor. The chrome-plated plastic navigation buttons and visible screws are tawdry, but what is worse is that the two halves of the case do not fit together completely and hermetically, leaving plenty of room for dust to get inside. Also, on either side of the front of the LCD screen, there are two rather large slits (presumably for ventilation), whcih are unprotected by wire mesh, for instance, so it's not exactly a device that you'd want to take with you to the beach.
