PMP recomendations

Looking at getting an I Touch Personal Media Player or like device.
There are so many choices out there...... I have been looking at the 64 gig Itouch and the Zune 32 gig

Any personal recommendations or observations out there?? Bad stories etc??

I've got an 80g Ipod classic and my girlfriend has an 8G touch. I like the app features for the touch. But the ones I think one really uses besides games cost money. If you just want it to play music I'd get a regular Ipod. But the Wifi part of the touch is nice because if you have wifi in your house you can be sitting on your couch watching the TV and internet whenever you want.

Then go for the touch. I love being able to see a movie or TV show, and go "oh shit, what movie was he in" then look it up.

I think after the second gen came out they added a speaker. IDK if third gen will have one. I imagine so. If you have an apple store near you go check it out play around with it. The touch screen is a PITA at first but you get used to it really quickly if you use if enough.

The ipod touch is by far the best way to go.

Really? All the people that I know with a Zune like it a lot.

I vote none of the above from what has been mentioned. If I'm going cheap and effective I'm going Sansa, fancy and expensive I'm going with Archos. Well, Archos has changed their product line up to be either bigger or smaller now, but I still enjoy my unit that I got ~4 years ago. Regardless, they make awesome stuff. An Archos 5 running Android would be pretty awesome.

I would recommend Archos 7.

Bright and high contrast 7" touch screen.
It's convenient to use in the car on the move, for the account of the big display and big virtual buttons.
Big HDD from 160 to 320 Gb.

All necessary communications: bluetooth, Wi-Fi, LAN, etc.
It's a pity is not present GPS receiver, but it's reparable for the account of use external bluetooth GPS receivers.
Btw, he playing .wav files (without quality loss).

I've got a 60gb Video iPod that I've hardly ever used. It's been replaced by my Apple TV. Guess your choice depends on whether you're looking for just a music player or you need the Internet access and games and shiz. That's how I'd look at the priorities and choices.

I only plan on the movies while in the car... I have a DVD player there and plan on using the video input. The Ipod interface I have installed in my car will handle the tunes.

Having the internet in the package is like the icing on the cake. Not sure if the apps available will be a plus or not.
