Summary: I have had this since December. I agree the player is cool and has good features such as the ability to record from the radio but if it breakes down what is the point? I am now having to bring in my player for the SECOND time for servicing. Not a big deal unless you want to wait a whole month for the process and if you don't have all of your music backed up... My suggestion, go with something that has been proven to work that also has good features, not this player.
Summary: I had this MP3 player for about 6 months. Everything was fine & dandy, until now. I had been using Napster & WMP to transfer files. However, when I logged onto Napster yesterday, they forced me to upgrade to this "new & improved version". There is no way to avoid upgrading the product. So, now that I've "upgraded" napster, the thing is ruined. It cleared the 1000 + songs I had in the player, saying it was due to a "serious error".
It started messing up before I even had it a week...

Summary: I hadn't even had this player for a week (I got it for Christmas) before it started messing up. The player itself works fine, it's the software that's required to use it that I have a problem with. Twice now, within three days, all the songs I had loaded onto the player were erased, and I still don't know why. The first time I had 515 songs on it, and the second time 147 because I hadn't had the chance to load them all back onto it. DO NOT install Napster.
Summary: I really wanted to make this thing work. Why? Because it APPEARED that Samsung had done all the right things- terrific on-screen information, above average sound quality, and despite other reviews, I found the unit to be sturdy and have that "feel good" thing when in your hands. But, that's where the good stuff stops- Samsung blew it on several major areas: 1) Perhaps the worst music transfer interface on the market today.
Summary: Songs imported into library alphabetically. Sent 2 email asking for support from samsung website - NO response received; not even stating they received my question. Hisses and pops heard on songs imported from wma 64Kbps but not heard when playing on PC. When I called asking if there will be firmware upgrade to correct song order as it is on the CD, got passed onto tech engineer.
Summary: This device is awesome. It feels solid, the interface is relatively easy to use (although not as easy as browsing a hard-drive, as you are forced to Genre categories, etc). The design of the hardware is also cool. I use this for recording meetings and discussions, and it works great. One click to start a voice recording. Oh man do i want to keep this mp3 player! But, i will be returning it. Why? Napster is required to really make it useful.
Summary: I bought this because I have a large library of MP3s that I want to transfer to a device and listen to. I also wanted a lot of extra storage for other files. What I found was that this player only allows you to listen to MP3s that are downloaded from the Napster application. Even if your MP3s are burned from your own cd, you can't listen to them with this player UNLESS you burn them with the Napster CD ripper.

Summary: C'est encore moi, geronimo5386. Dernièrement, j'ai testé Windows Vista Ultimate en anglais (en démo), ça a duré 12 heures et pas plus, car j'en ai eu marre des plantages. Bref, tout ça pour vous dire que ce lecteur mp3 ne semble pas être compatible avec windows vista. Le lecteur est reconnu quand on le branche, windows vista installe son propre driver, mais le problème, c'est que ce lecteur est seulement reconnu comme disque dur externe.
Summary: Le samsung YEPP YH-920 est doté d'un disque dur de 20Go largement suffisant pour y stocker plus de 3000 chansons en qualité optimale, lit les fichiers MP3, WMA. Celui possède une interface simple et fluide, une gestion des fichiers claire qui vous permez de trouver la musique par auteur,titre,album. L'écran rétroéclairé n'est pas inutile non plus, attention au pile cependant, celui est gourmant en batterie, déjà que l'autonomie de cette apareil ne dépasse pas les 10h.
Pros: Tres simple d'utilisation en ce qui concerne le lecteur MP3
Cons: Interface sur le PC pas tres pratique et surtout incompatible avec windows media center
