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...

Attractive design, quality ear buds, easy controls

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

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...

Good for PHONE- ONLY
