Samsung Yepp YP-55V


The YP55V is certainly one of the most fully featured MP3 players on the market. In fact an MP3 player is a poor way to describe the YP55V since it is also able to record from 3 different sources. Certainly I can't think of any other features besides...

Integrated FM tuner ; can be used as a storage device ; can record from multiple sources

No USB 2.0 support ; lacking Ogg Vorbis playback capabilities

The YP55V is certainly one of the most fully featured MP3 players on the market.

The Samsung YP-55 is an excellent mp3 player that is still more than capable of taking on the competition despite its age.It's packed with enough features to make this the 'Swiss Army Knife? of mp3 players.The awkward interface and poor battery life...

Overall, the Samsung YP-55 is an excellent mp3 player that is still more than capable of taking on the competition despite its age.

Samsung Yepp YP-55i MP3 Player Review


Able to store 192MB worth of music in MP3 or WMA format, the roll-of-quarters sized YP-55i also includes a digital FM tuner.

As an MP3 player, the Yepp YP-55i offers great sound, and a ton of extra functionality on top of that. The unit is solidly built around an aluminum chassis, and with 192MB storage, makes for one very cool little device

Samsung Yepp YP-55 H and V review


To compliment the existing range of weird and wonderful Digital Audio players offered by Samsung, the new Yepp YP-55 H and V models have recently been unveiled. It would appear the overriding concern for the design department was size, with both...

Good sound and radio

Irritating USB handling and 1-track MP3 recording

As with all single AAA-powered devices, you’ll end up carrying a pack around. Good tech but the handling makes them average.

Samsung Yepp 55


Samsung's tiny MP3 player can also double up as a removable storage device, FM radio, voice recorder and an MP3 encoder.

Compact size ; Multi-function device

USB 1.1 only

Performance A single AAA battery averaged about 12 hours during our tests with the volume up reasonably loud, usually around 27 out of a maximum of 30. This is pretty close to Samsung's estimated 15 hours. A safety feature of the YP-55 that irked us...

Несмотря на миниатюрность, плеер получился явно для двух рук, во всем виновато управление. Для модели с объемом памяти 512 Мб определенно не хватает USB 2.0. FM-приемник тоже не выдающееся достижение. Единственное, в чем плеер действительно хорош – это...

Yepp YP-55I MP3 Player


Mp3 players have come a long way from the past to the present. In the beginning most manufacturers focused on incorporating the new technology into their cd players and on creating solid state players. Fast forward to what's available today and the...

3D sound Enhancement, Upgradable, FM Radio, Good Performance, plays WMA, Voice Recorder

Ill fitting case

The Yepp YP 55i is a feature packed MP3 Player that can provide hours of music and is small enough for the person on the go. If you're in the market for a full featured MP3 Player, you should check out the Yepp YP 55i
