Summary: I have had my Samsung YH-920 for 2 years now, and have NEVER had any problems with it. It's got a huge storage capacity, is sooo easy to run, and has great sound quality. Like many people on here, I was not impressed by the iPod and went with something with better features. As of right now, I have 2381 songs on the player... all play perfectly with no problems. I have Windows XP and did not need to install anything, as XP found and installed any drivers needed for me.
Summary: I posted a review before about how my player began messing up and deleting all of my songs. I exchanged it for a new one, and I've determined that the original messed up because I did not handle it correctly and did things like unplug it without safely disconnecting. My new one works great. It does take forever to load all of your music, but that probably doesn't vary much from player to player.
Summary: I took someones advice and just loaded the drivers and used media player 10, and it worked flawlessly. I have loaded the drivers on two computers and everything went smooth and clean. I think the sound is great when using radio shacks small headphones, and the earbuds are also very good, but I don't like earbuds personaly. I bought the player on sale after considering a ipod. This player is at least equal to the pod which I believe is 50% hype.
Summary: The Samsung YH-920 was priced much lower than the Apple iPod. At $150 from ebay, it was not only less expensive than the iPod, but had more features, such as an FM Tuner. It plays both MP3 and WMA files. I found the installation and use of the software fast and easy. I have a PC with Windows XP and everything worked very well. The only thing I don't like the Napster connection. Music can be purchased for far less at other web sites.
Summary: This has been a great product so far. With more features for $100 less (on sale at Office Depot for $200), and better battery life and support for almost all audio formats, this is a great buy. All of the earlier reviews that said it didn't work are referring to the earlier version of the YH-920. Samsung re-released this item, so now it is REVISED AND FIXED!!!! I had the same problem before until I returned it for the new product.
Summary: My mother bought this equipment as a present for me after hearing I wanted an IPOD, I was absolutely dissapointed after reading all the reviews I have seen here. I tried to return it but the store in NY were she bought it did not accept it back (complete thieves- just around Pensylvania Hotel in Manhattan).
An Excellent Quality MP3 Player with Great Features!

Summary: I think some of the other reviewers must have been paid by Ipod to write bad reviews as I just got my Samsung YH-920 a few days ago and I am very impressed! I debated on whether to get an Ipod or the Samsung. Samsung products are usually excellent and this is no exception. The player is very well made and I believe the quality and ease of use are up to par with the Ipod.
For the price, it out-features other players w/ style.

Summary: It looks, feels and plays better than any other HDD out in the market. It has more features such as an FM tuner and recorder and in-line encoding. Works with Napster, MS Music, etc. I can't believe this product has been beta-maxed by the i-POD. Wake up, consumers, and look past the fancy ads. Plus, it supports Janus subscription services on MS based music services. No other player can do this yet. Hello????
Summary: This is a very good mp3 playyer. I am pleased with the sound quality and the ease of set up. The worst part was actually getting the mp3 player becasue it was such a hassle. I had to go to the store, then back home to order it online, then go back to pick it up. I got this at Best Buy for 175 tax included which is a very good deal. The transfer of the files is quick, easy and harmless. Using Windows Media is very good with this.
