Specifically, video-playing iPods? Do you already have content that will play or can easily convert to play on the Touch? And do you know how to do that or know someone who knows? Or are you willing to purchase content from iTunes? Getting video content is probably going to be your biggest hurdle because iPods are limited in the types of video files they can play. Video seems to be your main concern. If you can get over this hurdle, the Touch is a nice little (as in thin and light) player. I have one and like it very much.
I am at a loss... I just got a archos 504 80GB and the DVR station. But now I'm running into some problems such as portability (the archos
504 is B-U-L-K-Y and H-E-A-V-Y!) and recording quality (I don't own a cable box so I can't schedule tv recordings, and even when I do record with the DVR station the recordings look noisy) So I was thinking of selling the archos and then getting an Ipod touch 16 GB (it would be an even trade as far as money) What do you think? (Hurry! I'm going on three big trips soon and I need some media!) Thanks!
