Excerpt: Overall a good little player if you can overlook the lack of spare parts available for it!! I paid £149.99 for my Archos which I think is amzing value for money compared to other leading brands of MP3 player .
Pros: Holds a lot of songs/files and has a great user frindly disply!
Cons: I had an Archos Gmini XS200 for a little over 6 months and the hard drive inside crashed and wiped everything(5000+ songs)!! I contacted Archos about this and they suggested i contact the retailer who sold it to me!! Is this a retail problem or a manufacturer problem? I believe it is a manufactur...
Rather than an over priced fashion accessory, this is a no frills player with the right priorities.

Excerpt: The Archos Gmini, for my requirements, is one of the best MP3 players on the market and is brilliant value for money. That being said, I think it's really important to add the disclaimer "for my requirements" as the main things I love about my Archos may well be negatives to the Ipod lovers out...
Excerpt: At 7.5 x 6 x 2cm the Gmini is small enough for a pocket although it is quite heavy for its size (you won't be clipping it to your collar like some of the new tiny ones). The computer recognises it as another hard drive (like a memory stick), so it's very easy & quick to transfer files, including...
Battry issues let down an otherwise great little unit.

Excerpt: Sadly, I have been through 3 of these in 1 year! It was love at first sight but then things started to go downhill. Pro's: Lovely little things. Much smaller than iPod equivalent. Getting going is not that straight forward, but once you're up and running its really easy to put new music on.
cheap, big memory, small, the best value on market

Excerpt: I-Pods are cool. They are, too look at, an I-pod is pretty sexy. I-pods revolutionised how we listen to music. MP3 players have been around for ages, and they haven't been relatively expensive. I-Pods have been expensive, they've always been expensive, and to be honest, they still are.
Excerpt: After seeing everyone on the train listening to their ipods I decided that I too wanted one, however, I was not going to shell out that much money, and after all my friends saying how they are always breaking down, I started to look for something better.
Excerpt: I am an archos xs 200 mp3 player for a little more than a year now. More than an player I had used for data storage due to the efficient quality and space that this product offered to me; without any dough I can tell that anyone who look at it thinks that is a pager or something similar because it...

Summary: Ancien possesseur d'un baladeur mp3 à disque dur Thomson Lyra dont le disque dur est mort au bout de 9 mois, je me suis mis à la recherche d'un baladeur mp3 de grande capacité (donc à disque dur) ayant des dimensions dignes de ce nom.
Summary: Je possède un Gmni xs200 depuis bientôt 2 ans: il est donc largement rentabilisé, et fonctionne encore parfaitement. Les batteries commencent certes un peu à fatiguer, mais il arrive tout de même à tenir encore 5-6 jours en utilisation normale.
Pros: Prix, esthétique, fiabilité
Cons: pas de radio FM ni de mode "lecture aléatoire", ne lit pas les photos
