Archos Gmini XS202 MP3 player

 

The Archos Gmini XS 202 is one of the smallest MP3 music players with built-in hard disk. The unit comes with 20GB memory space which is enough for you to load 10000 songs onto the device. Yet, the price of the XS 202 is at the same level with other...

Small and simple, the Gmini is great for anyone looking for no frills music on the move

Smallest 20GB player, no software required: mass storage/drag and drop, huge screen/unit ratio

Ignorant/apathetic tech support, bad firmware update documentation, firmware not regressable. Joystick is awkward

Apple did not invent the portable mp3 player. We normally refer neither to Epsons, but to printers, and nor to Microsofts but computers. Archos mp3 players have always beaten Apple (and pretty much everyone else) on value for money and this one is no ...
