My daughter bought an archos 504.  It works great but I decided to go with a zune even after having an archos 320 myself because I love the smaller size of the zune.  The 504 is just too big to go jogging with or to really put into your pocket.  Nice dvice though.

I am a huge Archos fan. I have had a AV500 100gb and an AV402 that I was very happy with until the 404/504/604 units came out. I sold my AV500 and the AV402 to get the 404 and the 504 160gb. I only use them for video, the 404 for TV shows ripped from DVDs, and the 504 for movies ripped from DVDs (FairUse Wizard 2 is AWSOME!!!).

The only problem I have is the 404 has a non-glossy screen which makes watching in anything brighter than twilight kind of difficult.

One other thing, their email support is the worst. Always call them if you have a problem.

I just want to jump in and say that while I am a Zuner I am a huge fan of Archos. We still use our 5 year old Archos which I believe is a 2G player. It's about the size of an older portable hard drive which is really what it is. The battery compartments broke a couple of years ago, the tiny lcd screen is smashed, the silver paint is worn off all the buttons, and when I bought it, it was used. But it's nigh indestructable. It has been up and down most mountains between Whistler and Mt. Hood. It's flown across the US multiple times. It's been lost in the snow, dropped, stepped on, and abused.  And yet, while waiting for my replacement Zune I used it all this last month. It has outlasted 2 iPod shuffles, 1 20G iPod, a couple of Creative cheapo players and may outlast the Zune for all I know. If Archos makes all of their products like that one they are doing something right.

I still own an Archos Gmini 402 since the zune doesn't quite measure up in video out to TV yet compared to the 402 which supports near DVD resolution when plugged into a TV set (hopefully they'll fix this)  Undecided
