Daily deal – 160GB Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet for $279

My daily deal for today is perfect if you are in the market for a “real” media player.

The Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet offers a whopping 160GB storage space with support for almost every music and video format out there.

The device has a large 4.8″ TFT touchscreen with a near HD 800×480 resolution. 160GB is enough for 40,000 songs, or about 145 movies!

The integrated WiFi lets you surf the web using the Opera browser, or checking out online movies through the Archos media club. When you need support for more movie formats, you can even purchase additional plugins which add more functionality to the device.

Available accessories include a helmet camera (for recording outdoor activities), an FM radio and a digital video recorder, for scheduling recordings off your home TV signal.

These devices are so perfect for using in-flight, that many airlines actually offer them to their passengers instead of relying on old seatback screens.

Normally, this player retails for just over $400, but is currently on sale for just $279, which even comes with free shipping.
