    First week I was loving my touch, so were my friends. But as they say fashion is only momentary, well at least I say that and I'm sure it's true. I don't feel excited the movie quality is o.k not good just ok. I had an archos 605 wifi just a week before that and it left a huge impression on me for movies. It was nice, but then the music wasn't that great, but maybe I had defective one. This is only 8gb where as archos is 30gb. What do I do????? I want to keep it but at the same time I'm hating the movie quality everything else is ok. Except for iTunes, storage, and codec support factors. Archos is battery life, and size. What do I do? Help me out!

    Hm, best way to keep you from being bored? Why not try seeqpod.com?

    It's an amazing site I stumbled upon that you have access to lots of media you might not have. I tried it on my friend's touch, works perfectly.

    Really? Where did you find the sources? I was looking forward to an SNES, but a GBA? That's cool!

    First, I don't know what video content you are looking at but consider the source. While the Archos claims to support HD video and (I think) higher resolutions are you really able to tell the difference when you have quality video on the Touch? Everything I have converted looks OK. I wasn't expecting Home Theater 52 inch Plasma quality. For portable video viewing it's fine.

    The biggest advantage I see to the Archos is more video formats but you'll pay for that in the form of extra cost plug-ins. The down side to the Archos, in my opinion, is that it's slightly larger so it's a bit bulkier to be carrying around, you need additional docking stations for DVR and travel battery which is more junk to have to carry around and all of that is going to cost. I've also heard that the build quality of the Archos is somewhat questionable. It's not that I'm trying to bash Archos but it's far from the perfect PMP. Also Archos, as a company, seems to be abandoning the customer base that bought into the Gen 4 models which doesn't bode well for people that buy Gen 5.

    It sounds to me like you really didn't have a good reason to buy the Touch other than the "gotta have the latest gadget" mentality that seems to drive the electronics industry. I bought mine, as I stated above, to keep me from getting bored when I travel on business and it serves that purpose well. As with anything in life, if it doesn't serve a purpose it winds up getting discarded and forgotten.
