Summary: Samsung apparently listened to everyone who said the iPod was missing recording capabilities and FM Radio. They therefore came up with a device fairly similar in look and feel to the iPod and added those features as well as including some of the items people craved (recharging cradle, carrying case, and remote). At a cheaper price than the iPod it is very competitive. It lacks, however, in the interface.
Summary: I've had this player for about a month and this is a solid competitor in the line-up of new HDD MP3 players. I'll point out some pluses and minuses and give some comments on what Samsung could do to improve this for the next string of their HDD MP3 players. Size + Looks(9.5/10) - Sleek form, flashy aluminum cover, nothing to complain about here. Sound(8/10) - Good but it can only match that of the iPOD at 90dB Signal-to-noise Ratio.
Summary: Just bought this unit and have played with it now for a few days. I was anxious to make it work out for me due to the price and features. Pros: Compact size, 20 gig, price, FM radio with ability to record, voice recorder, bundle that comes with remote, case, docking station, etc. Cons: Either have to use WMP or the included Napster interface to copy songs. I only used WMP because Napster makes you register with it. Can't drag and drop songs to play.
Summary: I'm a new owner of the YH920 and while I have had some issues I feel many have jumped to conclusions without doing their homwork. First the player is a good alternative to ipod for the reasons given elsewhere. The FM picks up and can record well in strong signal zones and line in/out works well. Like others I have had set up issues. However my observations are " its not always the palyers fault".
Many Features but some Firmware improvements needed

Summary: I've been waiting for nearly a year for a player with YH-920's complement of features. It's Audible compatible and so holds many of the Audible books I'm listening to. It records through a microphone and a line-in and I plan to use this for recording lectures, speeches and meetings. And of course, there are all those music formats to be neatly organized in its library and the sound of music is very good with its decent set of ear-buds.
Stylish MP3 player with serious technical problems

Excerpt: "I like my Samsung 920. Capacity-wise is very good. Battery life is as promissed. I take it everywhere I go. The capacity size is definitely a plus and a big reason why I bought it. I use it as a back up hard drive. Please consider that there is a number of risks of doing this. First, remember that it is a hard drive -- thus it may totally die as it happens with notebooks drives, particularly if you take your mp3 jogging... Second, you are running ...
Pros: Looks great, easy to maneuver, great capacity
Cons: Very difficult to sync with notebook, freezes too much
Excerpt: "Firstly, let me set the record straight. You do not need the bundled napster software in order to load songs onto this machine. Many reviews claim that you do. The manual pretty much claims that this is the only way, its not a manual really but an advert for napsters subscription service. I'd recommend that you do not install the napster application unless you plan on using napster to purchase and download music files. Yes, purchase, this is not ...
Pros: 20 gigs, dictaphone, pretty cheap
Cons: bad menu system, radio reception poor, very bad bundled software

Summary: Bonjour à tous et à toutes, J'ai fait l'acquisition d'un bladeur SAMSUN YH920 il y a 3 mois environ. Je recherchais un baladeur Juke Box MP3 de grande capacité (au moins 5G) qui me servirait en même temps de disque dur externe. J'oscillais entre les modeles sur le net, les fantastiques Ipod etc,etc... Je suis allé faire un tour à la FNAC et j'ai découvert le SAMSUNG en giga solde.
Pros: Grande capacité de mémoire - Bon design
Cons: Ergonomie minimum - Gestionnaire de fichiers limité
Summary: Ayant profité d'une reduction chez France Telecom, je me suis offert , ce que j'allais dire un bijou, mais en fait plutôt un disque dur d'appoint.... ======== SOMMAIRE =========================1) Préembule Avec cet avis j'ai décidé de donner une note à mes différentes parties abordées, car une note globale n'apporte pas forcément un éclairage suffisant pour le choix d'un appareil, ... afin de mieux vous servir bien chères lecteurs.
Pros: grande autonomie de la batterie, capacité du disque, rapport compacité/capacité
Cons: transfert de fichier peu pratique ( par logiciel
