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 ... Read review

"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. The French company Archos make many fairly well rated hard disc based music/video players. They've got a few smaller flash players but, to be honest if ..." Read review

Good MP3 player with a few problems

AdvantagesPlays video, small, TV out and USB host

Disadvantages Not the best looking, interface isn't brilliant, short battery life and can crash

"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 this device is good when using a good pair of earphones. It's clear with a good bass output when using bass boost. The volume isn't very high but I never ..." Read review

Archos Gmini402 review

AdvantagesGood quality, looks nice, easy to use, value for money!

DisadvantagesScreen 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 required, you simply plug it into your computer (via usb 2.0) and it appears as external hard drive, you can then simply drag and drop songs, videos and photos ..."

Archos Gmini402 - Recommended

AdvantagesGreat sound, great video, great price

DisadvantagesPerhaps not as stylish as some other players, bundled earphones not great

"...hardrive to play on the Archos when you sync. For example, you pick a video from your media player library and add it to the sync list, and when you click sync media player will automatically convert that video into an Archos compatitble format and then put it on the player. You can also drag and drop music and video (or indeed any other type of file) into the Archos, and it can be used as a portable hard drive. The gmini can also be used as ..." Read review

Archos Gmini 402 20GB Review with images

AdvantagesPlays Videos, Small, Nice Design, Connect to TV

DisadvantagesBattery Life, Browsing Songs,

"...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 the design looks very nice, its silver small and very tidy. However it does tend to seem fragile as I was afraid that I might drop it or scratch the screen. Hence immediately I brought a cover from eBay which cost me £20 ..." Read review
