Samsung YH-820

 

Apple may be king of the MP3 player hill, but there are several companies hoping to dethrone the big red, and Samsung's in line. The new YH-820 micro HDD based MP3 player is not only smaller than the iPod mini, but it sports a bright color display, and...

Samsung YH-820 iPod Killer?

 

The world is going portable and gadget crazy. A couple years ago, MP3 players started to take off. The initial models were large, slow, clunky, and didn't offer a lot of storage. Since then flash media has come a long way and now Flash-memory based...

Samsung YH-820 Review

 

Samsung's YH-820 supports four types of file formats: mp3, wma, wav and ogg. Most people won't have to convert their music files. Additionally, this player will store and display pictures and has an external hard drive function

Samsung YH-820 review

 

A 5GB MP3 player that fits neatly into a child's mitten

Not flash-based ; HDD ; Lightweight and cute ; Voice recorder

Slow to find tracks ; Cheap earphones ; Poor playback time

This is a funky fella, but there are better alternatives for your money from the likes of Apple and Creative

Expert Review

 

The YH-820 is a solid MP3 player which is let down by some very annoying problems. We can't help but feel it could have offered a whole lot more.

Sound quality and equalization settings, sturdy build, FM Radio

Battery life, tacky control pad, small screen, poor quality headphones, slow interface, poor quality headphones

Samsung YH-820

 

The Samsung YH-820 pulls a mean blade on the Apple iPod, but this tiny MP3 player doesn't have enough clout to inflict serious damage.

Svelte profile ; Solid build

Short battery life ; Occasional crashes

Samsung YH-820

 

The newest kid on the mid-range MP3 player block, the Samsung YH-820 is a feature-packed player with one major flaw...

Where it falls down is in staying power, with a meagre battery life of eight hours that puts it far behind its rivals.
