Archos 5 beta yet released, asks for bashing

As much as I wanted a 3G iphone or Archos 5, I am never the kind to jump straight into a purchase without further research. And so far, Archos 5 hasn’t done much to convince me to bring it home with its several bugs and problems.

1st up, we have WIFI problems which could be solved if you set your home’s router SSID to broadcast but if those free wifi hotspots have hidden SSID…good luck. There are a few hiccups here and there with the latter being a more permanent effect. Poor customer support doesn’t appeal either but the good news is, a technical developer does frequent the site! All is not lost yet…unleashing the full potential of the device requires lots of dough to purchase the additional plugins and addons.

Last of all, the latest firmware is still in BETA. Yep, BETA yet released as the topic says. If you really want a headache free purchase which you really want, I mean, just look at this guy, a loyal fan turned into a rabid hater about to tear his Archos 5 apart. My recommendation is to sit it out (as I am) and observe if the bugs and codec support are resolved.
