this mp3 pales not only to the iPod but to the cheaper Sandisk mp3 players
2 September 2006
Summary: I had an iPod Mini. It died with no hard use in 11 months. I bought this Samsung player at Best Buy for [...]. The player's navigation keys weren't quite as good as the iPod clickwheel. The memory is tiny for a player that can do so much. I like the addition of FM radio and games.
Summary: This is a great unit with a MAJOR design flaw that nobody talks about. The BATTERY IS IRREPLACEABLE!!!!! It is a lithium ion so if you made the mistake of buying one don't let the battery drain completely--it prematurely ages it. I'm appalled I made the mistake of buying one!!
Summary: This item seems nice, until you read that it has... 512 megs of space. What movies/books are you going to put on this? And after you put something like that on it, what space will you have left for music? I'm not an Ipod junkie, but this is worthless. For $40 more, you get 1.5 gigs more.
Summary: I tried resisting the IPOD groupmind, and went with the Samsung due to the features and good preliminary reviews. First the postives....descent screen, games (if you want them....quirky but they're there), reasonable song management.
