Samsung YP-K5

 

The Samsung K5 is a phone-size MP3 player that includes an integrated stereo speaker.

The built-in speaker is louder than you'd expect. Very good sound quality.

Bulky for an MP3 player. Earbuds are oddly shaped. No PlaysForSure support

unfortunately, you can't create playlists directly on the k5—you need to transfer them via windows media player's automatic transfer function. there's a handy alarm clock feature that has flexible options for setting which days (and times) you want it...

Samsung YP-K5 review: Samsung YP-K5

 

The Samsung YP-K5 is unique and fun to use and sounds great--what's not to love? Well, maybe the price.

The Samsung YP-K5 features a unique and stylish design with a built-in, slide-out speaker, and the interface is stunning; includes an FM radio and cool visual effects. The player offers excellent sound quality, and the included earbuds are decent.

Due to the speaker, the YP-K5 is on the large and heavy side for a flash player; the touch controls take some getting used to and attract smudges; display could be bigger; expensive.

The Samsung YP-K5 is a unique MP3 player with a fun interface and great sound quality; it may be bulky around the middle, but it's an excellent choice if you want to share your tunes at the drop of a dime.

Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player

 

The MP3-player landscape is littered with me-too merchandise, so a new product needs a little something extra if it's to rise above the noise.

The speakers accomplish their goal of rendering Samsung’s YP-K5 unique, but we expect a lot more than a gimmick for this kind of money.

Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player

 

Did you know that Apple isn't your only option when it comes to choosing a new MP3 player? Pretty shocking, huh? What's more, many of the offerings from other companies actually boast more features than any iPod on the market, but is this enough to...

For the most part, I like the Samsung YP-K5. The build quality is great, the sound quality is quite good, and the integrated speaker is a very interesting and unique feature. Obviously, the speaker isn't the loudest thing in the world, despite what...

Samsung K5 4GB MP3 Player w/Built-In Speakers

 

In the world of MP3 players, there isn't a whole lot that hasn't been done, and these days every new MP3 player on the market really doesn't have any new "never-been-done" features, most are just the same features in a different package, well Samsung...

Great Sound Quality from a small set of Speakers ; Good Battery Life ; Built-In Alarm ; Very Sturdy Construction

Glossy Front hard to keep Clean

In the world of MP3 players, it seems like almost everything has been done, and lately I haven't really seen many new MP3 players with new features that really impressed me, well at least until I took a look at the K5. The K5 is really a neat idea and...
