NEED HELP CHOOSING BETWEEN 2 GREAT MP3'S

by 34thHustle / June 18, 2005 4:29 PM PDT

CNET Editor James Kim seems to like the Cowon iAudio X5 & so do I. Does anybody know if it can play video good? I know the screen is small and everything but is it possible to put 1-2hour dvds or short tv episodes on it without being choppy, frequently freezing, skipping or any of the sort?

I have the Archos AV420 & I'm thinking about selling it to get the Cowon mp3 player & save some money. What do you think I should do, gamble with the Cowon iAudio X5 or stay with the AV420, or better yet get the PMA430 (just like the AV420 just with internet connection). If the Cowon doesn't play video well then I really have no use for it, because I'm tired of the "iPod like" mp3's that are $300 and do nothing. I need an all in one device for a great price, any advice?
