Samsung's YP-U2 reviewed

 

Well, there's not exactly a whole lot there to review (especially in the wake of the YP-U1), but CNET got their hands on a Samsung YP-U2 and put it to the test. It came through with a "very good" rating for its FM tuner, voice recorder, PlaysForSure...

Introduction Upgrades. A word that we automatically associate with something new and improved. Additional features that make the current product much better than the previous. This was Samsung�s intention when releasing the YP-U2 in the US, but maybe...

Samsung YP-U2

 

Despite some minor issues, the simple but feature-friendly YP-U2 from Samsung will be a hot seller, thanks to a sweet price and great overall sound quality. It's a good choice for budget-minded users looking for their first MP3 player.

Supercompact with a convenient plug-in USB design ; Legible LCD ; An intuitive interface ; Extensive set of equaliser and DSP sound settings ; Impressive sound quality

So-so battery life ; Subpar voice-recording quality ; Audible clicks when starting or stopping a song ; Does not ship with a lanyard or an armband

Don't expect much in the Samsung YP-U2's package. In addition to the player itself, you get a pair of earbuds, an installation CD, and a quick-start guide. It has no lanyard, no armband, and no power adapter (so you'll have to recharge via USB) -- just...

Samsung YP-U2 1 GB MP3 Player

 

Today we take a look at the new affordably price YP-U2 1GB MP3 Player that's going for around 70-80 US dollars. This sleek looking player not only boasts a gigabyte of storage, but can also play other formats other than MP3, including Ogg Vorbis and WMA.

Small Size, 1 GB capacity, Rechargeable battery built in, FM radio, Drag and Drop importing of songs, Voice recorder

Poorly placed headphone jack, No lanyard, Poorly placed lanyard attachement

The YP-U2 MP3 player is the way to go if you're on a budget and looking for a tiny player with a large capacity. With it's DNSe surround enhancements, rechargable battery and priced around 70-80 US dollars, it's a sure winner

Review: Samsung YP-U2 MP3 player

 

A low-priced flash player to tackle the likes of the iPod nano...

Competitively priced, good useability, Ogg Vorbis support

Poor supplied headphones, lack of bass

There was a serious risk that the eight buttons on the device could have made it a real pain to navigate and control. However, one of the YP-U2's most pleasant surprises is that it is remarkably easy to control. Admittedly these controls can err on the...

This DAP is ideal for those on a tight budget.

There was a serious risk that the eight buttons on the device could have made it a real pain to navigate and control.

There's no question that this is a budget player and that is reflected in a few areas.
