Samsung Napster YH-920GS (20GB)


Below the YH-920GS's spacious screen, a large, four-way control pad manages virtually every aspect of the player's operation, from navigating menus to scrolling through song libraries to adjusting volume. With just four options present in the main...

Blissfully simple interface; line-in recording; line-out jack on cradle; plays and records FM radio; blazingly fast file transfers; plays protected WMA and Audible content; comes with cradle, carrying case, and wired remote; dirt cheap when purchased...

Poor battery life; nonremovable battery; mediocre sound quality; weak on-device playlist building; file transfers are slow when Napster handles them; limited recording options; not yet compatible with a key feature, Napster To Go, and other Janus-based...

The YH-920GS isn't perfect, but if you're looking for a feature-packed and affordable iPod alternative, it's definitely worth considering.

Samsung Napster YH-920


A good player that becomes great when integrated into the whole Napster system.

Samsung YH-920GS


A 20gb rival for the Apple Ipod but can this rural boy challenge the kings current champion or will its lack of stamina let it down?

Consumer review by:

"Horrible buy Ipod is way better"


Fm tuner voice and line in recording are nice, still lacks quality that ipod has. I recently purchesed this with the notion that the software for the napster to go would be comming out with in weeks, yet its been seven months and still no results. It...

more features

more features means more to go wrong

FM Tuner, Recorder, 20 gigs, Easy Controls

Single playlist, no aftermarket accessories, buggy napster

Consumer review by:

"While not perfect it's a decent solution..."


I was looking for a small 20GB hard drive player that was reasonably attractive (that ruled out the Rio Kharma) to replace my Creative Zen. I wanted WMA support as I didn't want to re-rip my entire CD collection and wanted access to more than one...

Good size; Audible-support; Janus upgrade coming

No auto adapter; so-so menus; playlists require Napster client

Consumer review by:

"Bad For Vehicle Use"


I work for a electronic specialist retail store, we have all the HDD players, this was middle of the range and easy to use.

Easy To Use, Cradle, Cheap

Terrible Battery Life, No vehicle accessories available

Consumer review by:

"good ipod alternative, but old..."


the cnet review is a bit off. yes, comparing to the new gen ipod, battery life is a little slow. and yes, compared to the new ipod, on the fly playlists suck... but... i think this product was released during the 3rdgen ipod times. so compared to that...

extra features, extra accessories

could be more polished, needs better software

"Drag and Drop...It's There"


Hey there is actually a way to drag and drop on this player and make it work without Napster or Windows Media Player 10. What you do is view hidden files in your explorer first. Then, access the player from My Computer and click System then click MUSIC. D
