Samsung YP-R1 16GB PMP

 

A cracking little device that packs high quality video playback into a credit card-sized package.

Not an iPod which is good and bad

 

This player is good value for money (ie 80 pounds or less). The unit is small and the screen is just big enough to watch a full move. The big / spacious audio is impressive especialy when watching a movie on the very clear screen. The audio goes deep,...
