  • Excerpt: This product is much more than your average "turn it on and listen to music" MP3 player. In addition, for the same money you get an easy to use portable hard drive, voice recorder, MP3 encoder and a color photo viewer in one neat and tidy package.

Samsung YH-820 Review

Digitaltrends
22 June 2005
  • Conclusion: The Samsung YH-820 has a lot going for it, a simple to use interface, attractive looks and good audio fidelity. But the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and Samsung has made several mistakes. The startup time is a dreadful killer that will keep you waiting, and the YH-820 simply feels lacking in features.
  • Pros: Great sound quality; easy to navigate; has a color screen
  • Cons: Slow startup process; lacking features; lags somtimes when navigating the menu

Samsung YH-820 iPod Killer?

  • Summary: The software that comes with the YH-820 is the only software that will allow you to drop pictures to your device - so don't lose the CD!  It also include Napster, and will require you to register a "Lite" account at the very least to use it.  I'm not a fan of Napster by any means, so I'm glad that there is an alternative for sync'ing this device - Windows Media Player 9 or higher.  I'm not a huge fan of WMP either, as I usually use Winamp to listen to music.

  • Summary: В целом плеер производит благоприятное впечатление. Он имеет компактный алюминиевый корпус удачного дизайна и качественный цветной дисплей. Качество звучания и изготовления YH-820 находится на достойном уровне. К недостаткам можно отнести необходимость передачи музыки и фотографий на устройство с помощью фирменного программного пакета, а также отсутствие возможности зарядки от USB.

4 July 2005
  • Conclusion: Dans sa volonté de contrer Apple, le constructeur coréen lance son juke-box de 5 Go à l’assaut de l’iPod Mini. S’il est très bien conçu, le YH-820 connaît des petits problèmes d’autonomie et de fonctionnement.

  • Pros: elegantes Profil, solide Bauweise
  • Cons: kurze Akkulaufzeit, gelegentliche Abstürze
