Samsung U5

 

The wide world of low-price MP3 players is rife with options, so it can be hard to tell whatif anythingdistinguishes one sub-$50 player from the next. Samsung's $39.99 (list) 2GB U5 has a tiny black-and-white screen, a built-in USB connector, and a...

Tiny, lightweight. Built-in USB. FM radio and recorder. Voice recorder. Solid bundled earbuds

Limited file support. Fitness features are weak

Although its purported fitness features are slight, the inexpensive U5's small size and tight-fitting, decent-sounding earbuds still make it a good choice for the gym.

Samsung U5

 

The Samsung U5 is a fitness-friendly MP3 player with a cute design and an affordable price ($40). With only 2GB of storage and a cramped, 1-inch screen, the U5 isn't suited as a primary MP3 player, but it works great as a second-rung surrogate to spare...

The Samsung U5 is an inexpensive MP3 player with plenty of file format support, an above-average voice recorder, FM radio, an integrated USB stick, and a useful fitness program

The U5 holds only 2GB of music, the screen is minuscule, and there's no support for AAC or Audible files

If you're looking for a small, practical MP3 player to throw in your gym bag, the Samsung U5 is a great option that won't break the bank.

The long time of continuous play

When I raise the sound volume for more than 16, and then switch it off and then on, I need to raise the volume again

OK for a normal MP3 player

 

It's okay for a secondary MP3, I mean non daily use.

DNSe ; Portable ; User-friendly

Popcon (I personally think it's pointless) ; No clock display in the playing mode ; Small screen ; Mediocre recording quality
