Fully loaded Samsung


With more features than a dozen iPods can shake an earphone at, the YH-J70 sure is packing in the heat for Samsung's latest salvo in the MP3 wars. We check out whether rockets and bullets are enough to overcome the Click Wheel shield.

"Good but could be better"


Let me start off by stating that this 20GB baby was a lot cheaper than its competitors when I was shopping for a player. It doesn't play anything beyond MP3 and wav formats, but for my purposes that was sufficient. The software for loading works well...

Easy to use, Good quality video, music and recording

This player can't jump

"Superb. This review is for the 30gig version"


This is an absolutely fabulous machine. You can't go wrong here. 25 hours of battery life compared to 8 on the 4th generation ipods and 15 on the 5th generation. I use it with a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 PRO studio cans and it powers them very well....

Dictaphone, FM radio , click and drag files from PC

Small screen for viewing movies

Slim and compact, Superb sound, Recording features, Auto EQ

Prone to 'freezing,' Playlist features not the best
