Samsung YP-U4 Litmus MP3 player review

 

The MP3 player market is a pretty crowded place, from very cheap players up to premium products, offering a huge range of options. For many, however, the deciding factors are simplicity and size. This fits the profile of the Samsung U4: a compact...

Onboard USB connection, looks pretty

Fiddly controls, nothing really stands out

Besides the pretty design, unfortunately there is little here to make the U4 really stand out from the crowd

Samsung YP-U4

 

The YP-U4 is the latest cut-price miniature MP3 player from Samsung. Combining sleek good looks, 4GB of storage, plug-and-play functionality and an in...

Great sound quality for the asking price, inbuilt FM radio, attractive design, drag-and-drop

User interface could be a lot better, poorly designed USB plug

As with all recent Samsung players you can copy files across directly using drag-and-drop or sync with Windows Media Player 11, making the bundled Samsung Media Studio application a little superfluous.

Neat and nifty

 

I'm so very impressed with this compact and stylish mp3 player. The functions are easy to navigate and use (especially for a techno-lame person like me). It's slim shape and overall design are what appealed to me. And now i've uploaded my favourite...
