Samsung YP-U4


I like your old stuff better than your new stuff.

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

The YP-U4 is an excellent MP3 player that packs in plenty of cool features for the asking price. While it fails to reach the lofty heights set by its YP-U3 predecessor, it remains a solid offering that won't disappoint the average music fan.

Samsung YP-U4


Codenamed 'Litmus', is Samsung's YP-U4 mp3 player the perfect stocking filler this Christmas?

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.

It looks rather snazzy from the outside but we're a little underwhelmed by sound quality and usability

Looks good, good price

Fiddly controls ; lacks detail ; lightweight sound

Small and Mighty


This MP3 is a little gem. It's very lightweight with a bright and clear screen. Songs can be transferred easily just through windows or the program provided. It does shuffle play and has a good volume on it. Perfect fit in your hand. It is a "touch"...

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...

Samsung YP-U4 JQ 2GB


Great sound quality and portability. Ideal for the gym or to connect to an auxiliary port in your car

Software that came with device did not work properly and could not register with Samsung, decided to use Napster in the end and removed the Samsung Sotware, much better. Took a while to get to grips with the features, others might struggle
