4 August 2007

Review: Samsung K5 MP3 player

11 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Like I mentioned above, having great and unique features is a good way to attract impulse buyers who have a lot of disposable income. If you really want to attract long term customers you need to have longevity built into the device.

Samsung YP-K5 Review

Anything but iPod
24 October 2006
  • Conclusion: Samsung’s K5 caters to a specific crowed and is not for everyone, myself included. However, it is a great player for its innovative design and surprisingly loud external speakers. I think that the player would be great for someone who listens to audiobooks, podcasts, or radio shows and doesn’t want...
  • Pros: Unique Design, External Speakers, Supplied earbuds good with bass and sound isolation
  • Cons: FM radio will not work without headphones plugged in, Touch interface can be inaccurate, Supplied earbuds may be uncomfortable for some people, No on-the-go playlists, No custom EQ, Proprietary USB cable

Samsung YP-K5

PC Magazine
11 September 2006
  • Conclusion: This combination MP3 player and speaker folds up to the size of the LG Chocolate phone. It's a very hip idea, though I'm not quite sure people will pay a premium for the integrated speaker. The slider mechanism seems sturdy enough, though, and the device makes a great travel alarm clock.
  • Pros: The built-in speaker is louder than you'd expect. Very good sound quality.
  • Cons: Bulky for an MP3 player. Earbuds are oddly shaped. No PlaysForSure support
