Archos has made the Jaguar of portable video recorders, with its new Archos AV 500. With a sleek brushed-aluminum casing, a slim profile, and a very sharp 4-inch widescreen LCD, the AV 500 is definitely set to impress. Its audio capabilities are music to our ears, but the real value lies in its video recording and playback features, which are the best in its class. Of course, this kind of performance will set you back $499.95 (direct) for the 30GB model and $699.95 for the 100GB version. Pirates beware: Although you can record from copy-protected DVDs and play the video back on the built-in LCD, you can't play the files on an external TV or your PC..
