Summary: The Samsung YP-P2's wide aspect ratio and superb screen support great viewing, while excellent audio quality and an abundance of equaliser options are major draws for serious sound buffs. It's a somewhat pricey option for anyone seeking a better overall experience than the iPod touch provides, along with integrated Bluetooth connectivity. The navigation, design, and touch-screen experience fall short of Apple's latest, though.
Summary: It's a nifty little MP3 player with Bluetooth capability that is suited for anyone who would like a slim and sexy device to listen to their music and watch their movies while on the go. The only problem is that scrolling through files can be a bit annoying.
Pros: Incredibly stylish, slim and user friendly; Bluetooth; 3in screen
Cons: No AC adapter; media software doesn't see videos on your PC, they must be added manually; scrolling through files on the player can be a little tricky; unintuitive back/forward commands; price
Excerpt: I set out over a month ago to find an MP3 player that could replace my 5G iPod Video . It was rarely used, sitting on my desk gathering dust. It was too bulky and fragile. Apple produced a fantastic looking device, but that ‘feature’ made me afraid to use it. The iconic iPod was also starting to lose its luster in my eyes (and according to Apple’s latest earnings report, perhaps in other peoples’ eyes as well , iPod sales growth is slowing, with replacement sales being...
Excerpt: Although the lustrous P2 is a touch-screen MP3 player, there is certainly nothing gimmicky about it. Available in 2, 4 and 8GB models, the P2 is a plush multimedia player that can more than punch its own weight.
Excerpt: Manufacturers of MP3 players recently, seem to be trying to pack every type of extra feature and capability they can into their units. Sometimes it works great, sometimes it falls short. Today we take a look at an example of how to do it right, with the Samsung YP-P2 8 GB MP3 Player.
Pros: Touch Screen, Sound Quality, Large screen, Video, Text browser, FM radio recording, Bluetooth headphone compatiblity, World Clock and Calendar
Conclusion: Technical Department Unlike most other popular MP3 players, this supports only a very few audio, video and picture formats. When it comes to audio, it supports MP3 and WMA, SVI and WMV as video formats and JPEG as photo format. This is a huge disadvantage of YP-P2 and consumers seem not too happy about it. To overcome the disadvantage over supporting formats, YP-P2 is equipped with lot of sound effects and nine-band custom EQ. I guess the consumers would love this.
Summary: The Samsung YP-P2 is a well-designed player and distinctly affordable for what it does. The only problem is that what it does just isn't as impressive as it could be. It sounds great and it's easy to use, but the lack of support for audio and video formats seriously hinders just how attractive an alternative this is to players from Cowon and Apple
Pros: Sound quality, Design, Price, Bluetooth capabilities, Large screen, High-quality video, Easy to use, Podcast support, Drag and drop functionality
Cons: Very few audio and video formats supported, Bundled video conversion software is rubbish, No Audible support
