Review: Archos GMini 400 (TomsHardware)
Tom's Hardware reviewed the new personal media player, Archos GMini 400, and they gave it a big thumbs up compared to the iPod. It's got a 20GB drive and it's tiny (4.2" x 2.4" x .7"). It's cheap, small, fast, and has a host of features that can't be found on the iPod.
Here's what this baby can do:
- Play music in MP3, WMA, and WAV format
- Record voice notes in WAV format
- Play movies including DivX, MPEG4 format
- Display images stored on the disk and via it's built-in compact flash reader
- Play games (Mophun™ game engine - typically in cellphones)
- 10 hour Battery life (5 hours for video)
With its tiny 2.2" LCD screen, it's probably not the solution for the screaming kid in the back of the car, but as for that screaming adult on a business trip, it makes more sense since you can hook the thing up and play movies in your hotel room.
Tom's Hardware review was glowing, and given the specs and feature set, I can see why.
Amazon.com Price: $357.99
