I paid £200 for this mp3 player a year ago and I've used it nearly every day since. It's still in good condition and has survived one drop onto a hard surface which goes to show the build quality is good. I'll explain the good and bad points of the mp3 player in this review. The sound quality on...

The Archos GMINI 402 comes in two versions; one with a camera/camcorder, one without. This review is for the version without the camera/camcorder functionality. Without the camcorder it retails for £199 but can be found on Amazon much cheaper. I purchased mine there for £129.99 about a year ago...

ConsScreen can get scratched easily

As a previous customer to Archos (i have brought the Gmini400) I was keen to try out their new product. Gmini402 is a device that plays videos, music, and you can view photos, it is small, stylish, and can fit easily into a pocket. The Gmini is very simple to use, there is no installation...

I got this two weeks ago from boysstuff.com for £149.99 delivered. I have been really happy with it, and at the price I got it rates as one of my best ever purchasing decisions. The mp3 player sounds great, and getting your music onto the player is incredibly easy. It can sync with windows media...

ConsBattery Life, Browsing Songs,

I have been an ipod fan since they first came out and to be honest had never really heard about the Archos mp3 players. However last year I was given one as a gift and at the time I was thinking id rather have an ipod any day. But after using I discovered the qualities the Archos has. For a start...

ProSmall, compact, easy to use

Conswill no doubt be overtaken by new technology

I've never been a great user of portable media BUT this little box of tricks has turned my life on its head! Even a relative technophobe will soon have music and pictures loaded and running. I like the idea of being able to watch home made videos whilst travelling, and it's so easy to use. So far...
