Summary: Great MP3 player, I wish Samsung would not have discontinued this item. The one I bought works ok. Sometimes it locks up but i did by it used. Overall, I'm satisified with my Samsung S3 4 GB Slim Portable Media Player.
Summary: I got this Samsung S3 to replace one I dropped and cracked. They are identical models, the (seemingly) only difference being color. The reason I wanted it was for the FM Recorder, which I use regularly, and which are hard to come by. The problem is, whenever I plug the new S3 into the speak unit and record, over time the FM signal begins to fade and become staticky. This is a problem I didn't have with the one I cracked. The unit on a whole is fantastic.
Summary: What a buy for the money! Excellent sound, easy to download music, easy to navigate. It's compact and very attractive, too. I'm so pleased with this purchase and have recommended same to my friends.
Summary: This is really good MP3 Too bad I lost it though... I only used that for 2 month Perfect sound quality as always from SAMSUNG... I don't understand why Ipod can't catch up samsung's sound quality Touchpad is sometimes irritating, but doable Converting videos is not difficult.
Summary: I put all stars for portability because duh, it is portable, it fits in your hand. I got this because my last MP3 player was a samsung and it lasted a very long time and I loved it. This one still works, but it has become my back up. I did not care for the touch screen aspect of the device. Since different songs can come through a mp3 player either high or low, sometimes you need to adjust the volume and with the touch screen on this device can make it difficult.
Summary: hey i had this for a while and it was good while it lasted. Before it met my washer machine it was a very reliable OK sound quality and a crappy set of earbuds. The earbuds are to big for anyones ears and have bad sound quality so i recommend getting new ones. When i accidently left it in my pocket, and washed it in my washer machine, it didnt work until i put it in another appliance. my oven. i put it on about 200 degrees and then turned it off until it felt kinda warm.
Summary: The S3 itself is a lovely little device, playing a decent number of AV formats with a great sound and video quality. The screen is on the small side, but since I bought it primarily as an mp3 player, I don't mind that at all. The FM radio is great and easy to use, and i like the idea of datacasts (aka podcasts) a lot. It even came with a few games! The problem is EmoDio. I cannot think of a time since I had Windows 95 as my OS that a program has crashed so many times.
Summary: I bought this product because I was interested in an MP3 player that carries some punch without the $-bite. It has served me well so far. It took some practice to be able to manipulate the tiny touch-screen controls. Sometimes you want to scroll and you end up pausing or muting because the controls are too close together. The FM is good, the text capabilities are amazing for a small equipment. I was able to read some of my letters saved on it while commuting.
Buy this item only if you don't want to ever use it

Summary: I purchased this item from a local store on 01/17/09, mainly because my previous experiences with this brand were positive. However, by 01/18/09, I was on the phone with Samsung because the battery would not hold charge. I was told to send the item back to the manufacturer for repair and they received the item on 01/27/09, as confirmed by UPS.
