Neat, well priced mp3 player

Boras_UK, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Overall the Archos 220 is a good little mp3 player. I've had it a little under a year now and it has held up fairly well. I had a problem with the hard drive recently and had to return it for replacement, but this was fairly painless and I got the unit back pretty quickly. Battery life is reasonable, sound quality is excellent.
  • Pros: Compact for a 20Gb player, robust, simple interface, CF port for memory cards
  • Cons: Must use musicmatch software for full ARClibrary functionality,

NOT PORTABLE - FRAGILE

mMcw, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Impressive at first glance with large memory and seemingly reasonable price. Instructions not easy - could not work out how to lock it so that it did not switch on if knocked. Quality of sound average. I soon got very ded up. The screen broke within first week when it was in a padded bag without any obvious drops or knocks. Retailer and Archos very unhelpful and said I had just damaged it and no refund was offered and told 'just to claim on my own house insurance'.
  • Pros: Large memory, small
  • Cons: FRAGILE SCREEN

Great little player but a few niggles...

  • Excerpt: This is my second mp3 player, and my second by archos. I bought this one as the last one was brilliant but failed to work after the 4xAA batteries leaked all over it. This one has the small Lithium Ion batteries that are standard now. The size of this one is very neat and comparable to the iPod, slightly shorter but also slightly thicker.
  • Pros: Small, Neat, Easy to copy songs to, Flash card reader is a bonus
  • Cons: Buttons too small, confuses buttons

Aesthetically lovely, Functionally excellent..

  • Excerpt: I was playing with my mate's one of these over the weekend and was struck by what a neat piece of kit it is. It really is tiny (mind you my hands are fairly big!) and the functionality is just as good if not better than my IPod. Memory-wise, 20 Gigs gives you an awful lot of memory and unless you're a serious muso you'll get your entire music collection on this Archos without any trouble.
  • Pros: Very compact, very cool and great memory for size
  • Cons: Image functionality isn't that useful  -  better to go for the Archos AV480

Gmini 220: What is it good for? Absolutely Nothing

fagelbage..., Ciao
12 November 2004
  • Excerpt: When I bought one of these GMinis, I was content with what i had purchased: A small, yet large in memory, fine-quality 20 Gb MP3/WMA player capable of holding over 5000 songs. The plug and play and drap and drop featues made it easy to access and to transfer music, especially using USB 2.0. Approx 200 songs transferred in under 3 minutes.
  • Pros: Compact Flash Drive, Fitted to hand,  Large memory capacity, Picture Viewer, Data Storage
  • Cons: Prone to hard - disk failure, Mildly slow, Button functions occasionally mix up .

5000 songs, so little time!

  • Excerpt: This gadget is really just like a mini computer. There are icons featured on the LCD screen for you to easily navigate your way around the gadget. The G-Mini is not really that small though. Even though it says it is portable, this is still bigger than a phone and bigger than most MP3 players you will find these days that come in little sticks.
  • Pros: A great gadget
  • Cons: Can only listen to one track

Gran capacidad y reducido tamaño

antvall, Ciao
27 February 2007
  • Summary: Buenas a tod@s Bueno cada vez se imponen más en el competitivo sector del audio portátil los reproductores MP3 de gran capacidad de almacenamiento y el Gmini 220 es la nueva aportación de Archos a este campo. Desde el principio se aprecian las mejoras sobre el anterior modelo (el Gmini 120) y las que más saltan a la vista son el tamaño y el peso, los cuales se han visto considerablemente reducidos pero manteniendo la misma capacidad de almacenamiento (20 Gbytes).
  • Pros: Peso, capacidad, facilidad de uso
  • Cons: Pantalla monocromo, sin radio, sin mando a distancia, calidad de los cascos suministrados

Ausgezeichnetes Multifunktionsgerät

pharos, Ciao
7 February 2006
  • Summary: Der Archos Gmini 220 besticht durch seine vielseitige Einsatzmöglichkeiten. Er bietet weit mehr Features als ein einfacher mp3-Player oder USB Stick und ergänzt den Vorgänger durch neue un westenliche Features.. Durch den integrierten Voice und Audio- Recoder bietet er zum einen die Möglichkeit ihn als Diktiergerät zu verwenden und gleichzeitig Live-Musik in überzeugender Qualität aufzunehmen. Am Display können sogar Bilder in gängigen Formaten dargestellt werden.
  • Pros: Bedienung, Verlässlichkeit, Preis
  • Cons: keine

So habe ich mir meinen MP3 Player gewünscht

Elli61, Ciao
18 November 2005
  • Summary: Hallo, meine beiden Töchter hatten die Idee mir zum Geburtstag einen MP3 zu schenken. Da ich beruflich öffter Daten mit zur Arbeit nehmen muss und ich auch viel Platz für meine Musiksammlung brauche wollten die Mädels mir einen schönen größen Speicher zukommen lassen. Ja nur leider hatten Beide nicht genügend Testberichte gelesen. So kam es zu dem klassische Fehlkauf. Sie haben eine Anderen mit 20GB gekauft.
  • Pros: Handlich Klein und Toller Klang
  • Cons: Etwas teuer

  • Summary: INHALT 1.Vorgeschichte 2.Technische Daten, Features 3.So ist sie wirklich 4.Fazit 5.Preise ---------------------------------------------- VORGESCHICHTE Ich hatte schon seit längerem vor, mir einen mp3-Player zuzulegen. Als ich mir das aktuelle Angebot ansah, war ich mir sicher, dass es ein mp3-Player mit eingebauter Festplatte sein sollte, da diese im Gegensatz zu den Geräten mit Speicherkarten (Compact Flash, Smart Media, MultiMedia Card oder Sony Memorystick) einen...
