Talking Questions about buying?

So I'm a current sansa e280 owner and am woundering if I should buy the Archos 605 WiFi 4 GB. I currently own a psp 2000 to and am thinking if I should get the 4GB version 605 for movies, and surfing the web (mainly using flash for Youtube and other websites). Anyway...

1. Is it actually worth the $200 I'd pay for it? Also for only 4GB?
2. Is there going to be bigger size flash versions coming ut soon?
3. I know 802.11b is slow but is it faster than some of the browsers out there.
4. I heard the user interface is screwed up on it but you get the hang of it after a while right?
5. Is it actually worth all the money you invest in everything for it?

Those are my main concerns. Please answer as soon as you can. Thx.

I also own a e280 and I'm very pleased with it but I just bought a 605i 160Gb because I was tired of running out of space.

Now I'm always out of power...

Since I'm mostly in car or plane. I got myself some decent external USB power packs to mitigate the problem.

I wouldn't buy a 4Gb 605 if I were you. Go for more space.

1. I own an 80gb Archos 605, and I have to say it was definitely worth the money. 4gb isn't that much, but it does take SDHC cards.

2. As far as I know, there's not going to be a bigger size. Maybe for the next generation flash model.

3. The browser on mine loads pretty quickly. I have no issues with speed.

4. I've heard that from a number of people too, so I guess I'm one of a handful of people who the interface makes sense to. One thing I remember someone complaining about is that the x button on the top right corner is used to go back through menus. Made sense to me, but I guess not for everyone.

5. After everything I bought for it (2 plugins, 2 game packs, DVR station and battery dock), I can honestly say I have no regrets in spending that money. Couldn't be happier with it.
