Samsung YP-T8 MP3 Player


Today we're looking at the latest offering in the MP3 player line from Samsung, the YP-T8. This looks to be a very packed and feature filled MP3 player. A few of the many features are full colour LCD screen, video and picture display capabilities and...

Most features I've ever seen in an MP3 player ; Small size ; Large size colour LCD screen ; FM Radio ; Three ways to record, Line-In, Voice, and FM Radio ; Great overall styling ; Colourful and easy to use interface and navigation

The 1gb fills up fast, a hard drive version would be nice in the future

Overall I was blown away by the features and performance of the Samsung YP-T8 MP3 player. Samsung has really redefined the MP3 player with this product and loaded it with useful features that any media junky can't resist. They've kept the physical size...

Great little player


I fit way more than i anticipated with 512mb, mine came with a rubber casing which is excellent for running with. User interface is hard to understand at first, games really arent fun, lol, videos dont take up a lot of room which is nice

amazing sound quality, nice big screen(for the player's size), Very light(easy for exercising with), great looking videos, amazing radio reception, and crystal clear voice recording. Also lets you record the same radio station at a certain time...

Not a lot of storage, controls are a bit small, videos have to be converted in real time which can take a long time

Great mp3 player


NO... mp3 player on the market deserves a 5 beacuse there is no perfect one. But this gets a 4 which means its the closest you could get to being perfect.

small, great battery life, better than xxx for the fact that it has just as many features and not as pricey. ONe of the best flash mp3 players out there. Ability to play videos

Only 512 mb. This is not that bad for me but for someone who is more demanding a gig or gig 1\2 may better. No removable lith ion battery

THE BEST MP3 Player EVER so far


If you are looking for the BEST MP3 PLAYER right now, this is it.

The sleek body evocative of a new type of a cell phone is perfectly ergonomic to your hand. The size is perfect. It is actually smaller than iPod nano in height. It beats iPod in most catagories ; 1. The body of T8 is much stronger than that of nano....

Only con ; 1. only 1G memory ; but 1G is enough for me to save movies and music. No Problem

Samsung YP-T8X


A good value for the price. It can entertain you for hours.

This thing is awesome! I was suprised of all the functions and how easy navagation is. It even come with software to further compress videos without much, if any, quality loss. You'd be suprised how much you can load on 512 MB

Even though 512 MB seems plenty for a few hours of play, you always want more. Too bad it doesnt have a slot for memory

awesome mp3 player


I got the European version of this before it debuted in the US and it's an awesome mp3 player. This really can play back decent video, though you have to convert the video files. Also, it has good radio reception and voice recording. But the really...

great just for the audio


I was looking for an mp3 and ogg vorbis player which looked like a mass storage usb device so it could be compatible with other OS's like Linux. It was tough deciding between this and the nano which for the same price had a slighlty better user...

Samsung YP-T8X 512 MB


Compared with the quality and samsung electronics, T8 handling all, let a person feel it's a fairly humanized design. Additionally, it is worth mentioning the game function also is quite a surprise, the screen is colorful, music is outstanding, the...

Standby time long

Samsung YP T8X 512MB


Samsung YP-T8X is a wonderful MP4 player you can take anywhere you go. With 512mb, 1gb and 2gb memory available, you would be satisfied with its music-on-the-go sounds. I own this brand model and memory of Samsung. And I bought it with the right price....

Good music
