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

The 7.100 is good in many ways: including improved fastforwarding, faster GUI. However I couldn't find the Navigation anymore (folders). Anyone know of this? As well for some songs after applying the lyric to it, the time count for the song goes crazy...

Check out the forum for what I posted about 7.100, I know at least 5 English speaking people who have tried it and its all good. No problems and lots of upgrades, and yes it is the latest one to date. – - – It adds better Navigation, FAT32 Format...
