Samsung YH-925

Useful feature set includes photo display, USB host, voice and line-in recording.

Heavy distortion introduced by all EQ settings. Inconvenient, proprietary cable. Requires software driver on PC.

The Samsung YH-925 is a promising player marred by serious sonic flaws. Acceptable quality without EQ, but all EQ settings are a disaster.

Samsung Yepp YH-925GS Photo/MP3 player


The Yepp YH-925GS contains a 20GB hard drive and sports a nice bright 1.8 inch, 260K colour LCD screen with a resolution of 160x128 pixels.

While it might seem that we are being overly negative here, the reason is that we really wanted to like the Yepp YH-925GS. It's small for a HD-based player, it has good battery life, a fast connection, great sound and volume, nifty photo viewing...

Samsung YH-925 20Gb Digital Audio Player


The hard drive MP3 player market really got a boost a couple years ago when an *unnamed* company came out with an *unnamed* player which still continues to dominate the market (you know who I'm talking about!) Although that player maybe looks flashy,...

Small size ; Colour LCD Display ; Can view JPEG files ; Voice Recording ability ; Line-in recording ability

No FM Radio ; OGG File Format support would be nice as it is starting to rise in popularity ; Windows XP only

Overall Samsung has once again done a fine job with their first hard drive based MP3 player. There are a few very minor areas I could see possible improvement upon in future revisions, but overall this player has tons very useful features!

Supporting FM radio, voice recording, image viewing and open file transfer capabilities, the Samsung is packed with features. It's not as light nor as stylish as the Sony Walkman or Apple iPod, however.

Tons of features, nice screen

Battery life not great

Samsung Yepp YH-925


There's currently a big demand for gadgets that can display photos as well as offering music on the move, so the Yepp YH-925 from Samsung, one of only a handful of truly capacious portable players around, ought to do alright - even if it lacks some of...

The YH-925 isn't as polished as other hard-drive-based players but it's not badly priced. It's unlikely that thieves with a penchant for digital audio players will be targeting the YH-925 if there's anyone around with a recent iPod.

Samsung YH-925


The photo-friendly YH-925 has a wonderful interface but suffers from poor performance.

Beautiful, photo-friendly colour screen ; Excellent interface ; Supports a variety of audio formats ; FM radio, line-in and voice recording ; Plays Audible content

No cradle option ; Slow to boot ; Mediocre sound quality, especially from certain equaliser settings ; Below-average battery life ; Annoying proprietary cable/charger ; Limited slide-show capabilities ; Doesn't display album art

The Samsung YH-925 lasted a bit less than 10 hours in our battery tests -- better than we expected, given the addition of a colour screen, but 5 hours less than the latest iPod. What's more, many of our songs sounded ragged and hollow; something about...

Samsung - YH-925


There's increasing convergence between straight music players, digital voice recorders and photo viewers. Samsung wants a piece of that action and has just released the YH-925 as its latest pitch. This PDA-sized gadget has a 1.8-inch, ...

This is a very workable portable media device. While it does its job as an audio player extremely well - it's one of the best we've heard - it's much more than that. With radio, MP3 recording, photo display and file storage, it only really needs video...
