I got the Cowon S9 to replace my Archos 605 4GB. The 4GB is a lot lighter and thinner than the 80GB. The Cowon S9 is about 3 times smaller and lighter than the 4GB.

To put it into perspective I have been using the Archos 605 for watching videos on the train. I cannot put it in my pocket so it is cumbersome to take it out of the bag, out of the case and start playing videos.
It does not cut it as a MP3 player, because it is just too big.

The picture quality on the Archos is also much more washed out, colors just do no pop and no matter if it has 800x480 resolution, the same videos look much better on the Cowon S9.

The Cowon S9 on the other hand looks stylish, boots up fast and it's just the right size. You can easily take it out of your pocket to start watching videos right away, and when you want to listen to music in a hurry, you just simply switch to the music player and it can go right back into your pocket so the convenience factor plays a much bigger role.
