Summary: forget about all the driver and software problems, all the small buttons, etc. i got this thing home and couldn't even get it to turn on. obviously, a lemon, which can happen to any product, granted. but, given the the shortcomings others have mentioned, in light of this, i have to give it the one star. also, it's made pretty cheaply of flimsy materials. stay away from this product!!!
Summary: I was so excited when my hubby brought this little MP3 player home. I am an avid walker...what attracted me to the Yepp was how small and lightweight it is... unfortunately, your limited to "yepp" software... and it is not compatible with Windows Media Player or other cool Apps. The Yepp Software is very difficult to use... and I am a software tester.
Summary: After looking at over 30 MP3 players (which included extensive research online and visits to several stores), I landed on the Yepp 30SH (128 Meg). Before I bought the player I read the reviews here on Amazon.com, and there was a pretty clear concensus that the software that comes with the Yepp is awful, but I am computer savvy and I was confident that I could figure it out.
Summary: My father made the mistake of purchasing this item and I sincerely wish he never had. The interface is not user firendly, the instructions are confusing, the manual was near to worthless and bang for buck it's a ... The controls are so tiny you have to pretty much have the hands of a hobbit to use it.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this product. The physical design of the device is such that it is very difficult to interface with, the software is abysmal, and as of right now I can't even get any music transferred from my computer to the device. I wouldn't pay $.. for this product, let alone $.... Don't get sucked into the same trap that I did!
Summary: I bought this thinking I was getting a current product. Wrong. The software for reading CDs that it comes with won't read from my CD-R. It says it doesn't support Mac OS X (only 8.6 or 9.1). The web sites it takes you to have copyright dates of 2001. ... I think I'm going to have to return this, which is too bad, because it seems like a good jogging companion (you wouldn't want this otherwise, no radio, hard to read and operate except for the most basic functions without...
Summary: I have been very disappointed in this product. After following the directions to set up the software and following the trouble shooting guide, the software still doesn't work. Customer support has been nonexistant. For the price, there are better products and companies out there.
Summary: I bought the 128 MB version. I bought it because it said it was Macintosh compatible. What they don't tell you is that the functionality of the software is terrible (very limited) on the Mac. Forget getting music from a CD.
Summary: I actually tested the Yepp-30SH (the only difference is 128 MB). The packaging is attractive and a great example of marketing. It's actually fun to open up the package and get all of the parts out. The player is small, light, compact, fits easily in your hand, and it certainly does not lack any means to be carried around. Getting the battery in and listening to the sample tracks is a snap. Connecting to your computer is difficult at best.
