Toshiba Gigabeat T400 Media Player

 

It's taken many a year, but Microsoft is finally figuring out how to build operating systems for handheld devices. Windows Mobile Portable Media Center 2.0, embedded in Toshiba's Gigabeat T400 4GB digital media player, is better than anything Apple has...

Portable Media Center 2.0 kicks ass; intuitive controls; Rhapsody & WMA Lossless support

Only 4GB; no FLAC support

As much as we hate accepting trade-offs, we’re going to let the T400 bump SanDisk’s Sansa Connect from our Best of the Best list. The T400 doesn’t offer Wi-Fi support, but it does provide a bigger screen, a better user interface, and support for WMA...

Is the Toshiba Gigabeat T400 PMP a potential iPod nano killer?

Toshiba Gigabeat T400 (4GB, blue)

 

With a slew of video-worthy Flash MP3 players hitting the market--the Creative Zen , iPod Nano , and SanDisk Sansa View , to name a few--it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. Toshiba's new Gigabeat, the T400, distinguishes itself with its...

The affordable Toshiba Gigabeat T400 MP3 player provides excellent sound quality, airtight integration with Windows Media Center, support for subscription music content, an elegant user interface, and a color screen that really pops.

With only 4GB of internal memory and no expandability, the Gigabeat T400 just can't hack it as a portable video player.

The Toshiba Gigabeat T400 is a stellar performer that is crippled by a pitifully small amount of storage. If you can live with just 4GB of storage, the Gigabeat T400 offers brilliant audio fidelity, and a convenient way for Windows Media Center users...

Toshiba Gigabeat T400 MP3 player Review and Prices

 

Toshiba's Gigabeat T400 MP3 player offers a lot for its low price. This device is sleek and small -- it's just a touch larger than a credit card -- and sports color-coordinated accents and earbuds, good screen resolution and high-quality audio playback.

Attractive design, quality ear buds, easy controls

No FM tuner, no voice recorder, small storage space, short battery charge

When I was first introduced to the T400 in August 2007, I fell in love with this sleek looking, Windows CE embedded powered device. I personally couldn't wait to get my hands on one to review

Review: Toshiba gigabeat T400

 

When the gigabeat T400 launched in September 2007, Toshiba was confident that its 4GB flash player would be the answer to the "

Priced at just $120 and available for as little as $100 on Amazon, the Toshiba gigabeat T400 is a capable and well rounded digital media player that can hold its own against fuller featured and more expensive devices. Video codec support and storage...

The Toshiba Gigabeat T400 Digital Music Player Review

 

Judie Says: If you agreed with me that the Toshiba gigabeat U202 was a product comparable to the Apple Shuffle, then I think you'll also agree that it would be hard for the Toshiba gigabeat T400 to avoid comparisons with the the 4GB Apple Nano. Both of...

"Outstanding Audio / Video player and Photo Tote!"

 

I've had this for about two years. As an owner of an ipod (Touch), Sony mp3 Walkman, Slacker Portable Radio and several other pocket audio gadgets, this is right up at (or near) the top of the pile.

Crystal Audio Clarity, Excellent Video, Seamless Sync & Transfer with WMP, Easy Drag-n-Drop of Files and Photos ... Beautiful Aesthetics and Design.
