4 star on product when it works, 1 star on CS & Tech support

C. MEI, Amazon
11 June 2007
  • Summary: Bought this product in Dec 06 when it was around $200. Not bad for 20GB and the loads of functions. Works well the first three months. Digital camera and Camcorder is not bad. Quality is not the best, but it's useful in a pinch.

pretty good

Anonymous, Newegg
12 May 2007
  • Summary: I've had the Gmini 402 for almost two years now, and its still working great. I have an earlier generation model, however, so I can't comment on the camcorder. If you get this device, be sure to change it to hard drive mode, because the default setting is "Windows Media Device," which makes it a...
  • Pros: Great media player for the price. The main reason I got this device is because it plays .divx and .avi files, unlike that other popular media player. However, my favorite feature is that it can export video to a TV with the auxilary cable.
  • Cons: Compared to some other media players available now, 20Gb isn't very big. If you need to have your entire music and video library with you, this probably isn't for you. The games are pointless. Battery life is rather short; I find myself charging it after about 8 hours of audio.

  • Summary: Newegg is my only source of online electronics.
  • Pros: Within a week that I have received this unit, prices went quite a bit down, so get it if you been looking with big harddrive, nice earbud,with good sound, easy download from pc using Window Media player ( I need more practice with Window Media player since it is primary tool for downloading music...
  • Cons: Others have said that battery don't last as long as I would like, and I wanted a bigger screen, but for the price, it is still a good deal.

Nice all in one multimedia unit

John G. Pollard "jpollardbookseller", Amazon
4 February 2007
  • Summary: I bought this player about 2 months ago. I like it. It's easy to transfer files to and from the unit especially since the unit can be connected to your computer as a Windows device and use Windows Media Player to transfer files or it can be connected as a hard drive and the files can be transferred...

A linux-friendly pocket audio / video record / playback device

Joe A. Dellinger, Amazon
7 November 2006
  • Summary: I wanted to buy a portable device that would let me record high-quality digital audio. There are quite a few products available that allow that, but I wanted a device that would interface with a Linux PC without difficulty. Not many choices there!

Pretty Awesome

Carlo P., Newegg
20 October 2006
  • Summary: SOLID Mobile Media Superbeast, but onyl for the patient - could use some improve interfacing between it and the computer...
  • Pros: Small, sporty design - very upgradeable if tech savvy; love to find a broken one to experiment - solid onboard interface - fairly good optics on the cameras - lots of connections - mobile media superbeast from a long line of great products...
  • Cons: little noisy if you have to max out the onboard mic to record - cumbersome interface with the computer that sometimes locks it up; recommend for the patient only - somewhat poor choice of materials for the finish as it's kinda slippery - could use a flash or onboard speaker that you can toggle, b...

Good product not that user friendly to begin with

K. gilliam, Amazon
19 August 2006
  • Summary: So far i have enjoyed the product. 1. The video camera works very well for an all in one product although the sound is kind of muffled. 2. Media player works great for music and videos, as long as you have an updated version of windows media player to convert all the files. 3.

Tons of fun!

Mark R., Newegg
2 June 2006
  • Summary: Make sure to DL a mpeg4 player or the upgrade to your current player on your computer to view videos. I didnt have the upgrade at first. An interchangable battery would have been very handy, but I got over it.
  • Pros: Storage, sound, versatility, small learning curve, great size, navigation. Great for piecing together nights at the bar when you are not the driver... although it better be a lighted bar.
  • Cons: No flash or light for dark areas, pictures and video is virtually useless in this environment. Other than than I have no beefs.

Take your digital camera with...

D. Phillips, Amazon
22 May 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for a family vacation. I originally wanted a smaller digital camera that could easily fit in a pocket and would'nt be a problem to carry. I spoke with a sales clerk and he had a few sugestions which were ok, then he showed me this.
