I keep my ginger in the freezer, take it out and peel it with a knife or even a spoon then grate it with a handheld microplane

garlic press. i use my press for onions and also hot chilis. works like a charm on a lot of things.

I always use my microplane. Super quick, I often don't even peel it first.

I always use a microplane for ginger and can do it right over the vessel and its always evenly minced.

I use one of those ceramic horseradish graters, its ideal for ginger. they're available in any oriental grocery stores or at Crate & Barrel.

I use a knife, but I've seen TV cooks who cut it across grain in fairly short pieces (after peeling) and smash it with the side of a knife and call it a mince- can't really tell how well it works from the TV picture.

Peel it and put in your Cuisinart. Or Vitamix. Mince a good bit and freeze it.

Knife or a microplane. To use a knife, peel it or not (I do) cut it into coins, then strips and mince up the strips.

A knife? It's cuts really easily. I chopped it till it's fine just like garlic but if I want it really fine (ie if I'm putting it in a marinade or soup or sauce) I used a box grater or a micro plane. Lots of easy options...
