I am an 3.5" screen Archos 404 owner and I confirm that it has native DIVX/XVID support. It has played EVERY DIVX/XVID movie/show I have downloaded (and I DL a lot!). It also goes for cheap as it goes on sale regularly, so it's an EXCELLENT bargain when it does. It's only $250 for the stock unit (optional external "spy cam" can be purchased later) at the Archos site, and $300 for the version with included video camera. It does NOT record video native, but a $70 add-on enables it, and a $100 add on gives you high quality inputs and TRUE SCHEDULED TV recording (Hello PVR, bye bye TIVO). The 504 has a 4.3" screen and costs $350. The 404 kicks ass, A2 does too, Creative Vision is damn nice, iPod Video has at least fixed its battery life issues but it is still a pain in the ass with its lack of DIVX/XVID support.
