I have both 605 30gb and 504 40 gb. At first I didn't like the 605, seemed more fragile and audio quality was worse than the 504 plus it doesn't have a removeable battery. After I dropped my 605 3 (THREE) times on a tiled floor with no consequences i can declare it's not in the least fragile; later firmware upgrades made it sound better, strangely enough the wifi reception improved after I dropped it the second time (no kidding) and the screen quality is the best one can get at this time. Internet browsing is a wonderful experience and they are going to bring flash 8 (they say flash 9 but I don't believe them) with the next fw. Plus it's already been hacked! So my advice is go for the 605.

I must admit that the 10 extra gb of my 504 (40 gb) do make a difference, so 50 more gb. would be of great importance if you are looking for capacity; if you want more features (like internet browsing, streaming, downloading etc.) or the best video quality, 605 30 gb is way better. If you haven't watched a movie on the 5 th generation screen, 504 is really very good, alas I cannot go back to it because I've seen the difference...

605...it has way more features...and who the hell is selling the 504 for the same price as a 605....thats wrong in too many ways.
I had a 504 and enjoyed it a lot, but compared to the 605...I prefer the 605. Much more to do on it. If the 504 was cheaper and all you wanted was to watch videos and play some mp3's id say go for the 504.
