Best portable device for watching TV shows?

I've got a fairly large amount of TV shows, anime episodes, etc. that I'd like to watch on the go. So what's the best portable device for watching such shows? I'm guessing a PSP is the way to go, because of a perfect intersection of price, relatively large screen size and the added nicety that it plays games.
Is watching a TV show on the PSP a good experience? How much video can you expect to store on it? And how hard is it to get video from various formats into it? (Most of my stuff is avi, but some of it uses odd codecs - I'm assuming there's a swiss-army-knife app out there that loads video onto a PSP?)
Alternately, is there a better device that provides an awesome portable show-viewing experience, that's not too expensive? Bitchin' cell phone, one of those "Life drive" things that Palm made a few years ago, etc.?
