Move over iPod Photo, these bad boys are more then likely going to take over, with XviD support, they have my vote (and maybe my money) for now.

That sounds like a kick ass product. Let´s hope the price is somewhat reasonable.

I've just purchased a pmp-140. Works great. Can anybody tell if there is a size limit on video clips. I have video clip that is 1 hr 40 min long though the iriver pmp-140 only plays 1 hr 20 min of it.
