One of the most important facets of the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder is found in the fact that it is a versatile device. Truly, despite its moniker, Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder is really much, much more than your run of the mill camcorder. It truly is a completely functional media player. The Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder is solid in the manner that it plays back for its user both digital video and digital audio in a crisp manner. The Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder also captures both video and audio from either its own internal lens and microphone as well as from a line input. Moreover, the unit can be used to take still images with sharp resolution.

The video screen on the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder provides a sharp resolution and a good quality picture image. The screen is a bit small at 2.2 inches. It can be a bit mind numbing if you stare at the screen for an extended period of time. But, most comparable units have similar types of screen sizes … and, in the end, watching any type of video image on any size screen for an extended period of time can have mind numbing results. In other words, the screen size – being pretty standard – is not a huge problem with the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder.

In looking at the audio performance of the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder, one must consider it very good … indeed, excellent on many levels. There is very little distortion associated with the audio, no matter the volume or audio content. On the other hand, the navigation buttons associated with the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder are well placed and easy to manipulate. On balance, the Archos Gmini 402 Camcorder is a solid choice if one is looking for a good quality and reasonably priced media player with camcorder functionality.
