Conclusion: Though it's missing some of the extra features that come with the Samsung T9, the Samsung K3 is still a solid MP3 player and yet another rival for the affections of would-be Apple nano owners.
Pros: Tiny, lightweight, and attractive. Attractive graphics. Excellent FM reception. "Resume" option is useful for podcast listening.
Cons: No video capabilities. No voice or radio recorder. Smudgy surface. Player can't be used while charging. Buttons are a bit too easy to activate accidentally.
Summary: Even though the journalists have already gotten tired of find off Nano and newcomers claming the title, Samsung K3 seems to be a serious bid for victory, at least in the countries, where Apple’s solutions are not dominating, like in the US. As for the Russian market, here the K3 will come out on top thank to being locked to a sole file manager (support for Universal Mass Storage, UMS) and having a price which is on a par with its rivals.
Excerpt: Slightly larger, but thinner, than the original iPod nano , Samung’s YP-K3 enjoys the same ‘I want one’ kudos. It’s stylish and sleek, and its backlit screen is a thing of beauty. But further comparison with the nano is less flattering for the K3. We tested the 2GB version, although there’s a 4GB flavour for only around £120.
Conclusion: Technical Department The navigation of the system menus is simple and easy to get use to. All the menu icons have a dotted outline. Whenever a menu icon is rolled over, a short animation is played and the option can be selected at the end of the animation. This can be quite frustrating when you want fast navigation. The player uses a simple drag and drop transfer feature through a USB 2.0 port.
Excerpt: It looks like thin is in with MP3 players lately, and Samsung has released their latest 'thin' creation the YP-K3. Measuring in at just 0.27 " thick the YP-K3 definitely qualifies as thin, but that's not its only virtues. The unit also sports a 1.8 " full color LED screen, light-emitting touch sensitive controls, FM radio, and is available in three colors and two capacity sizes.
