Excellent

 

Being an avid hater of all things ipod, this is the best unit on the market although I think it is well on its way to being discontinued. I am very pleased with it and also picked up a cheap $50 unit on eBay in case something goes amiss. Having said...

Great sound, very easy to use, bullet proof, has games and radio (can listen to MP3's and play games at the same time - awesome), line-in record function.

Hard to find firmware upgrades (they are out there) and accessories. Smallish screen. Software fairly average and converting to .SIL video files is a bit of a pain.

Good

 

BRILLIANT !! As our first MP3 player - it's money well spent. I would recommend it to anyone..

It's idiot proof! If I can work it - everyone can :) We originally bought 2 JNC SSF-M9 20GB primarily for the price (and not knowing any better). We should have read the reviews of the product first!. Exchanged the 2 JNC's for 1 Samsung - tested it,...

Can't seem to find accessories for this player.. Still looking though.. I don't necessarily believe this is a

Samsung YH-J70 30GB

 

ease of use, can be used as removable disc, just drag music/video files onto it. dont need to use the special software.

Watching video is not all it's cracked up to be. screen could do with being a little bigger.

Samsung YH-J70 30GB

 

Small size, light weight, big colour display allows easy navigation. Simple to use voice recording, line in facility, Good quality inbuilt radio, ergonomic feel.

No bad points that I can see although it would be good if there was a facility to name the radio stations once you tune them in.
