Archos Gmini 400
- Quality LCD, ease of operation
- Nothing notable
A quality little player that's among the cream of the crop.
Price$ 749.00 (AUD)
We recently had the chance to spend some quality time testing Archos' new Gmini 400, a personal portable multimedia player that allows you to play video games. The device also functions as a photo viewer and an audio and video player.
The Gmini 400 has a 2.2" high-resolution LCD screen that can display 262,000 colours. This display was surprisingly clear and had a viewing angle superior to most competing devices we've tested.
It measures 10.7 x 6.1 x1.8cm and weighs 160g. This means it's smaller than an iPod but around the same weight. Its 20GB hard drive can store up to 300 hours of MP3, WMA and WAV music files, or store and play back up to 80 hours of MPEG-4 videos, or up to 200,000 digital photos.
You can also purchase games for it, based on the Mophun console (www.mophun.com)--think newer mobile phone-style titles.
Archos says the lithium ion battery can play up to 10 hours of audio and 5 hours of video on a single charge.
The bundled software allows for easy file encoding and transfers over USB 2.0 are quite quick. There's no need for drivers, as the device reports to Windows XP as a removable hard disk. The Gmini 400's navigation is clear and straightforward.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
