Samsung YP-T9

 

Apple had better watch out: Samsung's YP-T9 is the most powerful nano competitor yet.

Fast processor • Bright, vivid display • Zoom/enhance for viewing image attachments • Long battery life

Extra apps required for attachment editing • IM clients are not preloaded

Samsung YP-T9 4GB

 

People love to throw around the term “iPod killer”, and if ever there was an iPod nano killer, the Samsung T9 is it. Boasting features usually reserved for larger hard drive based players, a super-sleak design and one of the most intuitive interfaces...

Small size; large and bright screen; video/picture/text/music playback

Slow startup and shutdown times

People love to throw around the term "iPod killer", and if ever there was an iPod nano killer, the Samsung T9 is it.

Samsung YP-T9J (2GB)

 

The Samsung YP-T9J is an attractive reminder to all PC owners that the Apple nano isn't the only pretty flash-memory player on the scene. With a $130 street price, the T9 is just a shade cheaper than the super-popular nano, and you also get video...

Tiny, sleek design. Larger screen than the Apple nano. Video capabilities. Good battery life

Video playback often distorted. Lag time between tracks. Navigation not as simple as on nano

Good-looking and tiny, the YP-T9J is a worthy adversary of the nano, especially for PC owners looking to get more bang for their buck. Nonetheless, it's not without some annoying flaws.

Samsung YP-T9JQB MP3 Player

 

At $125 (as of 1/9/07), the Samsung YP-T9JQB is an affordable alternative to the iPod Nano. It's small and light, fits easily into your hand, and has a smooth, attractive surface. The model we tested comes with 2GB of internal flash memory, but a 4GB...

Well-designed and inexpensive ; Built-in mic for voice recordings

Below-average sound quality ; Video must be transcoded to MPEG-4

For such a neat little player, the Samsung T9 comes at a very competitive price. It's a shame that the audio quality falls short in a couple of areas

Below-average sound quality ; Video must be transcoded to MPEG-4

The YP-T9JQB is easy to use and offers many features, but its audio quality fell a little short of the competition's.

Samsung YP-T9 (2GB, purple)

 

The sleek, durable Samsung YP-T9 has a user-friendly interface and is packed with features: photo viewing, video playback, gaming capabilities, voice recording, and subscription music support. It sounds great and looks hot; its battery life is also...

The Samsung YP-T9's processor is slow, and side buttons take some getting used to. What's more, the USB port is proprietary, and the device has no UMS mode.

Despite a few minor issues, the stylish Samsung YP-T9 is a no-brainer: it's easy to use, packed with features, and sounds fantastic. What more could you ask for?

Samsung's YP-T9 reviewed

 

Alright, we've seen it hit the FCC, China and Korea, but how do we really feel about this new Yepp player diving into the already crowded nano-killer space? According to CNET, we feel "Very good." The YP-T9 sounds to be quite tactile and fun to use,...

Samsung YP-T9 MP3 and Video Player Review

 

Walk into any big box store these days and you will find a flood of portable media players on display. There are many shapes, sizes and prices vying for your attention. While Apple continues to lead

With a MSRP of $129.99, this player packsa lot of value into a pretty cool form factor. The only room I see for improvement is the addition of a"back" button on the face, or at least in an easier to get tolocation that would make one handed operation...

Samsung YP-T9 MP3 Player

 

The delivery of Samsung's latest MP3 player, the YP-T9, was something I eagerly awaited. After seeing the pictures and reading the features and some initial buzz around the WWW, this was one player I just had to test out for myself. The 35 hour rated...

Sleek and compact design ; 4GB of memory ; Tons of features ; Large and vivid colour display ; Easy to navigate, menu system is one of my favourites ; FM radio feature made me happy to see, most manufacturers ignore including this ; Great sound quality...

Should include a protective case/wrap for it ; Box doesn't do the player justice, it should list all the features on the outside somewhere

In the end I was not let down by the YP-T9 4GB MP3 Player from Samsung. It's sleek, attractive, feature packed and best of all extremely user friendly. I loved the menu system of this MP3 player, I'll honestly say it's probably my favourite I've used...

Samsung YP-T9 Slim Portable 4GB Multimedia Player Review

 

I sometimes wonder what MP3 manufacturers have in mind when they decide to compete in this market. With 80% of the customer base dominated by Steve Jobs's iEmpire, how is it worthwhile to compete for the remaining 20%? Or do…

Sleek and attractive design ; The joy of drag and drop file transfers ; FM Tuner onboard ; Long battery life ; Built in Voice Recorder

AC adapter not included ; Software interface resembles iTunes (but works better) ; Poor sound quality when attached to a good system ; Bluetooth wasn't as cool as we thought it would be ; Fingerprints are the enemy
