Awful company to deal with

A. Lohr, Amazon
21 September 2006
  • Summary: Archos makes a lot of products with great functionality, but they are also very unreliable and when they break, you have to deal with some of the worst customer service around. If it only takes a month to get a working replacement for your broken product consider yourself lucky. It took a month for them to send me another broken product which I had to send back.

Horrible customer service and poor product

Malhar "Malhar", Amazon
28 April 2006
  • Summary: I bought this MP3 player/camera/camcorder because I figured I could use all the functions whenever I need, all in one device. The first time in 1 month the hard drive crashed. I could not access anything. I called up Archos and they said to send it in, which I did. They "fixed" it and sent it back. In fact, what they had done is replace the device with a refurbished ones because the serial number was different.

  • Summary: Never have I bought a product with so much potential that has been such a flop. I wanted so much to have a dedicated multimedia centre to free up space on my pocket pc for more business apps - so I foolishly splashed out on this. Not only is the camera positioned in such an awkward place that you have to hold the Gmini with a difficult grabbing technique, but there is no flash on it either - rendering it useless for much of the day.
  • Pros: The idea
  • Cons: The product

  • Summary: First the camera is absolute crap. A mediocre cell phone does better. The sound /headphones is even more pathetic. Next, it doesn't play music from a library like the iPod, but you have to select files to play. The screen quality / resolution is mediocre It's sold as a 20GB device but it's actually got 18GB The so called games are the cheap type you'd play like in the 18th century... well, in the 80s.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Poor (pathetic) camera and sound, video conversion time consuming...

Archos Gmini 402 20GB Digital Media Player Review

DJ Vibes - VNV, Unbeatable
23 February 2006
  • Excerpt: The Archos Gmini 402 (20 GB) Digital Media Player is a quality, durable and handy product to have in your possession. The image and video quality is not the best when taking pictures or video recording, but audio recording quality and music playback is superb. I am a DJ who often needs to record live sets for review and promotion and find it very easy to carry around due to its small size and light weight.
  • Pros: Audio quality - so recording and listening to music/mp3s is ok!
  • Cons: Display quality
