Very Good


I bought a 1gb version for my daughter and I must say I love this model, battery lasts forever! I own a 512mb creative and I must say I like this Samsung model much better, has better sounding playback of music to me. Controls are easy to use and...

Very Long Battery Life ; Nice LED Screen ; Progress bar for song ; EQ presets are good ; Better than Creative

Menu confusing at first, ok after I read the manual ; Price ; Earbuds from factory are just adequate

Exceptional player


I don't think I'll consider buying a player that doesn't have the SRS WOW enhancement. Its effects are adjustable from disabled to lurid across several categories. Dialing in a little bit makes the sound more vivid and spacious.

long battery life ; useful configuration options ; SRS WOW enhances listening ; USB mass storage device; loads easily ; plays OGG's ; FM radio has good sensitivity

requires a special USB cable ; no clip-on case is provided

Great Player - NOT AAA BATTERY


New egg has information wrong. This doesn't take a AAA battery - it takes a AA.

Incredible sound options including WOW, SRS, and regular equalizer adjustment. Sounds great and works easily. The screen is easy and clear to read

Menu system seems overly complicated and takes some getting used to. It is tricky to make a playlist

Be careful ordering this item


I ordered one and Newegg shipped me a YP-C1X (512MB) instead but charged me the price of a YP-C1Z (1GB). A difference of $30. Two days and 3 emails later, I have heard no response. I suppose it is just a database error at newegg that cause the...

Is probably really nice

I would not know because newegg sent me the wrong item

My First MP3 player


This is my first MP3 player so I'm still new at this so perhaps the playlist problem I will be able to figure out over time. Even with the terrible software (or just downright error in production by placing the wrong application on the CD) and the...

When you plug the device into the USB port it looks just like any other flash type device. I can copy not only MP3 files but any other type of file I like and just use it like a flash device. I can create typical windows folders on the device and then...

The USB driver loaded without a hitch. The other software is terrible. The pictures in the manual do not even resemble the pictures I see on the screen. Even the name of the software is different in the manual than what came on the CD. The manual talks...

The Hershey's Kiss of MP3 Players ?


There is good and bad about this MP3 player. First the good. The best thing about this unit is its size. It is very compact for 1 gig of memory, and still manages to incorporate a single “AA” battery so it has very good battery life that is ...

Small size. Great "AA" battery life, and features such as FM tuner and voice recording

Average sound quality, weak pre-out(output)

Not a bad choice.


Prior note : I owned this product for only four months and I have since replaced it with the Transcend T.sonic 520 2GB, which I review elsewhere in this site. Samsung has been at the forefront of technology for the last few years, and it comes as no ...

Stylish, good sound quality, excellent battery life, solid construction

Some parts feel amateurish, proprietary cable for Line-In recording, poor recording quality
