Summary: The item that was sold to me was exactly what it was said to be a loud mp3 player. The item is exactly what it was all said to be. The speakers slide out very nice and smooth, and on top of that it was not that expensive. Though not the upgraded brother it was said to be; the samsung yps5, it still is pleasant with the alarm clock funtion, capability to upload photos, and a fm radio.
Summary: i purchased this product mainly b/c i like to listen to sermons, and i wanted to find a way i could speed up the tempo. i'm not completely satisfied since i did so much homework looking into this product. the fact that it has a speaker is definitely a plus. however, the buttons are too sensitive (touchpad) so that it's difficult to navigate. also, the fact that it resets your volume settings to default everytime you turn off the device is very annoying.
Summary: I use this device exclusively for listening to audio books while running/walking. I've been using a SanDisk Sansa C-140, but find that it takes too long to find my place in a book when a battery dies, and I have to pop in a fresh one. On the other hand, at least you can do this with the Sansa--popping in a fresh battery isn't an option with the Samsung.
