Summary: Would have given it 5 if not for the defect. Other then that, the P2 is great in theory. Touch screen is a fickle technology, can sometimes be more of an annoyance then anything else.
Pros: Has all the standard features, which work well enough. Somewhat intuitive menu. If your looking into buying the P2 you already know what it is your looking for feature wise and for the most part, it works like a charm.
Cons: Major Problems: Do to a manufacturing defect, the headphone jack input eventually breaks loose from the board. No nice way to re-solder it to the board, had to send it back except the new P2 has the exact same problem. Minor annoyances: Bluetooth headphone quality is rather low, but not unexpecte...
Great piece of hardware, poor accompanying software

Summary: Like many others before me, I want to say that the Samsung P2 is a great MP3 player with an interface that is well designed and a touch screen that works pretty well. I can think of few ways to improve the player itself, along the lines of what other reviewer have already suggested, but at this time...
An awsome mp3 player, but dissapointing at the same time

Summary: Seeing that this was a highly rated mp3 player, I had high expectations for it. The screen, videos, and pictures on it look absolutly beautiful, and the touch screen didn't take long to get used to.
Summary: Samsung YP-P2 8GB Media Player Right now, there's no doubt what the coolest gadgets of the moment are in the minds of the digital music-buying public. It's the latest touchscreen-driven devices from Apple.
Pros: brifgt screen good battery life easy to use large icons video quality is amazing sound quality is great
Cons: no apps and games lacks wifi f.m signal is rubbish doesnt support alot of formats but deasnt software included to help convert
Serious competition for Apple in the shape of the 'P2'

Excerpt: I have owned a Samsung 'YP-P2' in the past, the 2GB version. Although the capacity is reasonable I found the need to expand, and as I find using this particular MP3 player so much I decided to just upgrade to a higher capacity version of the same model.
Pros: Sleek design and simple navigation of the menus .
Excerpt: This was a decent product when I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago. I got it right when the first Ipod touch came out and it was much cheaper. It plays decent quality is easy to use and looks relatively nice. Unfortunately it is pretty outdated at this point and the headphone jack somehow broke.
Excerpt: My third MP3 player and easily my current favourite. I bought mine off ebay for £90, the 8GB version. I think this is one of the best buys ever now! The face of the MP3 player is the same gloss as the back of my laptop screen.
Pros: Sexy ! Sleek, good quality and high resolution screen . Brilliant value for money .
Cons: No extra programs can be downloaded/bought . Touch screen can be sensitive at times .
Excerpt: I would like to start by saying that this is the nearest thing to an ipod touch that actually works. I recently got one of these for christmas and i really am impressed. It really is a sleek looking thing and with most of the people that try to get close to almighty ipod fail.
Pros: very stylish cool looking with amazing software and good quality sounds
Excerpt: I have owned the samsung YP P2 MP3 player for 6 months now and I have to say it has been a pleasure using this device.\ Firstly its looks are top notch with its sleek black finish and it feels solid in the hand, like a quality product should.
Pros: Good sound, sleek and good looking, video playback .
