Default Archos 604 Wifi, Video Ipod, or Zune?

I am looking into getting a personal media player to take to the gym. I want to load TV shows, movies, and music on it to watch/listen to as I run on the treadmill/eliptical machine. I have checked into these three devices and they all seem pretty cool, with their own pros and cons. Anyone in here have any advice on which would be best?

It really depends on how concerned you are with size. But if you are using it primary for exercizing you may want to consider a flash memory model rather than a hard drive model. I do like the Archo, the big screen is nice, but the size is much harder to deal with in terms of armbands etc.

If I were buying today, I'd certainly give very strong consideration to the Archos and maybe even the Archo's Wifi.

I've always been a fan of archos. Since their inception they've made an effort to release products that are/were leading edge and geek-friendly.
