I love my GIGI for multipitches too.
I'd add just a couple of things:
-if belaying with just one rope, I'd suggest to clip the rope's carabiner through the carabiner that is connecting the GIGI to the anchor. In this way, if the second falls down you'll be sure that rope's carabiner won't flip. This can happen exepcially on thin rope as darkside's review says.
-if rappeling down with thin rope just put 2 carabiner though the rope and you' ll slow down.
