4.0 out of 5 stars
A few glitches here and there, 13 July 2010
I've had the Gmini for a while now and it's served me very well. It's sturdy yet comfortable to hold. Camcorder mode is brilliant and i was extremely pleased with the quality of the image, though not really DVD quality as some descriptions will have you believe. But still, the quality is great. The camera mode however is very demanding and requires you to keep completely still otherwise the slightest movement will give you a blurry image. Audio is great, but problems involve the audio not playing when you pick a track, the audio playing at half speed or double speed for no apparent reason. This doesn't happen too often thankfully, but more than i'd like. When using the recorder, the audio is very good, but quite often you can hear clicking from what i assume is components inside the device. On occasion, the device would shut down for no reason too, even with full charge. While the device allows you to watch long movies and play games on it, i really wouldn't recommend it as the battery isn't made for it and will drain very fast. All in all, the Gmini does have its problems, but i'm very attached to it and enjoy it very much.
