Summary: Price was a little too high considering 1. The condition and age of the player & 2. The fact that this player cannot be repaired or serviced anymore. If it malfunctions, it goes to the trashcan. A BIG gamble on a 11 yr old electronic unit that no longer has replacement parts.
Summary: I bought my unit after trying two different units in home. I tried the Creative Labs Jukebox(40GB) and then tried another Creative Labs unit. I stayed with this one because it gave me zero problems. I like the color screen that the unit has.
Summary: The Samsung YH-820MC and related family of iPod-competitors represent a nice attempt, but are not quite ready for prime time. Too bad, really, because with some improvements this could be a solid little iPod-killer.
Summary: Smaller than the iPod mini and has a color screen and relatively easy navigation. A little slow to boot up initially, but this is not a detrimental issue. Definitely glad I researched this before plunging into the iCult.
Summary: Long story short.....I purchased two of these players, one for my wife and one for me. My wifes player was defective so I exchanged it for a new one. Three uses later with her new player and the hard drive crashed. I returned her second one with my player and got a refund.
Summary: Pro1: Decent sound with EQ off or on WOW. You can alter the SRS level, the bass level and the treble/mid (focus) level. Compared with the parametric EQ on a Rio Karma, optimized for Sony MDRex71 phones, the sound is fine enough, though still a tiny bit short for me.
Summary: I purchased the unit second hand and had difficulty at first with it as it had to have the firmware re-run. Window Media Player 10 and 11 would not work and I wanted my music, not Napster music on the player. Samsung were of no help.
Summary: I have been using my YH820 for about 2 months now. I think it is a great value for the money. Pros: 5 Gb for $200. For now, that is a good deal and certainly a value when you consider the other features the 820 provides Unlike previous reviewers, I had absolutely no problems getting my unit to synch...
Summary: Unless you want to be tied in to napster and unable to download without the Samsung/Napster software, don't but this unit> I did, and even when you use the intrusive software that comes with it, it is slow and cumbersome. The first unit had to be returned due to a failed hard drive.
Summary: This is an amazing little gadget but falls short, the appealing features include the 5 GB storage, beautiful, trendy fit and finish, very convenient size, affordable price and the fact that it's also a photo viewer.
