Samsung S2 review: Samsung S2

 

Samsung S2

Simple, compact design; fast transfer speeds; generous three-year warranty; inexpensive; available in a rainbow of colors.

Included backup and password protection software doesn't support Mac OS.

Although we dinged its predecessor because of its inflated price tag, the Samsung S2 Portable hard drive earns high marks and our recommendation for being reasonably priced, having fast file-transfer speed, and for having a generous three-year warranty.

Samsung S2 review

 

The Samsung S2 Portable hard drive is almost identical to the company's S1 Mini that we reviewed in 2009, except that the S2 Portable is slightly larger because of the 2.5-inch hard drive spinning inside. With capacities reaching 640GB ($120) and being...

Samsung Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble)

 

The minimalist Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble) audio player is a fun, inexpensive alternative to the iPod Shuffle. But be prepared to spend some time with its manual: The absence of a screen makes navigating this player's many features tricky.

Advanced features despite simple design ; Unique and wearable design

No screen makes navigation difficult ; Mediocre sound

The Samsung S2 Pebble is fashionable, yet hindered by its tricky controls and mediocre sound quality.

Samsung YP-S2

 

The YP-S2, aka the Pebble, won't win any awards for sound quality or battery life, but it's a cheap, gym-friendly iPod shuffle competitor.

Small and lightweight. Cheap. Gym-friendly earphones. Can create playlists on the go.

Earbuds lack bass. Necklace earphone design not for everyone. Cable-free PC connection is awkward.

Samsung S2 Pebble review: Samsung S2 Pebble

 

Samsung S2 Pebble

The Samsung S2 Pebble is an excellent value: it's inexpensive, sounds great, and offers a sleek and stylish design. It also includes a couple of useful extras, such as an on-the-go playlist and sound effects. The earphone plug design is handy.

There's no screen, and operating the Samsung S2 Pebble's extra functions takes some practice.

The Samsung S2 Pebble is a simple, cute MP3 player that offers a super affordable price tag, good sound quality, and some compelling extras. It's a great option for those who like to wear their devices pendant style.

Samsung S2 Pebble Review

 

Admittedly I'm not a big fan of MP3 Players without screens since I like to be able to browse what is one my player, but I do see their appeal. Samsung is the third major brand to release a screenless player right after the Shuffle and the Zen Stone....

While there is not much to a screenless MP3 player, the S2 has managed to pull off some advanced features like DNSe sound enhancements and a single on the go playlist. The S2 is not the best bang for the buck, since something with a screen at the same...

Samsung YP-S2 Pebble MP3 Player Review

 

In April we had the chance to go to the Samsung Spring Fever event and check out  some new products being released soon from Samsung. One of the items that struck us as especially unique was the YP-S2 MP3 Player aka the “Pebble.” It was tiny and...

Very women and pre-teen friendly, Easy to use and good sound quality, neat lightshow effects, affordable price

Would truly be an iPod shuffle competitor if it supported iTunes or AAC files

I think Samsung has what could be a very successful MP3 player. It competes with the iPod Shuffle price-wise and it has a great design that will appeal to women and teens. We like that can be worn as a necklace safely and that it also puts on neat a...

Samsung YP-S2 Review- Budget MP3 Player with Better Than Average Features.

 

Say hello to YP-S2 a.k.a "The Pebble" from the Korean tech giant, Samsung

Expert review by : Seow Tein Hee (hardwarezone.com)

Samsung YP-S2 MP3 Player - HardwareZone.com

 

Light and small as a pebble, which also happened to be its nickname, the Samsung YP-S2 proved to be a portable and auditory pleasure for us.

Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble)

 

Cute and glossy entry-level MP3 player

Tiny, cute design, easy to use

No LCD screen, simple feature set

Samsung's YP-S2 Pebble MP3 player is a unit for those after something basic. It does a good job with music playback and it looks stylish, but it lacks the features of its more expensive counterparts.
