Summary: The thing works way exactly as described. I think it could be modernized by having a larger screen and support for video, but overall I am happy with the performance of this player. My only complaint is the software that comes with it does not burn cd's very well.
Summary: I am a massage/physical therapist; I work with people in their homes. I use music during the sessions and was tired of lugging around a boombox and cds. I was looking to get an ipod and speaker dock/attachment but it turned out that to get the quality of sound I wanted, I would end up with a player that is the same size as a boombox. While searching, I came across the K5 with built in speakers and decided to get it. I am very pleased!
Summary: I just received this MP3 player for Christmas and really like it. Being a little older, I am not engrossed with my music as when I was younger. I find myself not using the headphones that much. All of the functions work well and the preveous reviews cover these items very well. The headphones are the antenna for the FM radio so leaving these plugged in when listening to the speakers is not a big deal.
Summary: I love the K5. I know "little" is a relative term and as far as other MP3 players go it may not be the slimmest or lightest but I think that if you can live without video, for what you do get and the versatility it is overall the best in this price range! Very easy, user-friendly interface, I am not a computer or gadget whiz but I had this machine up and running with music and pictures in less than 1/2 hour.
Summary: This MP3 player is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, one of the best I've ever owned. It is very easy to operate and has crystal clear sound. I had been searching for a long time for a good MP3 player that had a built-in speaker that didn't sound like they pulled the speaker out of a cheap headset. This is a great investment, especially considering you'll spend twice the listed amount buying the 1 or 2 GB version from any major electronic store.
Summary: THIS NEXT-GEN DEVICE,THE BROTHER OF THE Samsung YP-K3JAB IS 10x BETTER.THE NEW VERSION HAS MORE SPACE,BETTER FEATURES,AND A COOL DESIGN.WHAT MORE TO ASK FOR :)?THE BEST UPGRADE IS THE BUILT IN SPEAKERS THAT THE SAMSUNG COMPANY HAS ADDED.SHARE THE MUSIC WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS,GREAT FOR A PARTY(BEST WHEN VOLUME AT MAXIMUM).OVERALL THIS ITEM HAS REALLY SUITED ME,AND YOU WILL FIND IT IMPRESSIVE TOO......
Summary: This is a nice little player with a lot of cool features but has a few flaws that if fixed would make this a nearly perfect player. For only a 2GB capacity you can stuff hundreds of songs on this player (I use WMA at 192kbps) which makes for hours and hours of listening. And transferring music files to the player is fairly quick. The FM radio feature is really nice too. Station presets let you zip through four favorites easily.
Summary: After perusing Amazon for MP3 players to buy, I decided on this refurbished 2-GB Samsung K5 for around $90. After ordering it, it arrived in about 3 days. I was so excited, that I began to charge it immediately. After disconnecting it from charging, I realized that to turn it back on, I had to hit the reset button on the back. Nowhere in the QuickStart Guide did it say you had to do that, so that's one thing you need to know about this player.
