Summary: I loved everything about the player as far as the usability, versatility, and style. I did have a problem with how frequently and seriously it was broken. After a few months of ownership the connection point for the USB port became loose and had to be held in a certain way in order to charge or put music on. Less than the first year (luckily still under warranty) I had to send it to Samsung for the earphone jack to be fixed.
Summary: I was looking to save my 10 year old son some of his birthday money so I shopped around for the best deal I could find. The Samsung YP-T8X 512 MB Music and Movie Player was the best deal I found with all the features he wanted. The Samsung is a nice looking gadget with all the bells and whistles but it's feature are hard to use. The software that operates the music downloads is not user friendly.
Summary: My son loves how small the mp3 is, it has great sound. One big problem that I have noticed with other YP-T8 mp3 players and our MP3 is.... the head phone jack goes out. You have to wiggle the base of the head phones (connected to the MP3) to get the sound to work. You may think your head phones are broke or have a short but this is not the case, it is the connection. This is a frequent issue with this MP3.
