Samsung's affordable YP-U2

CNET
23 October 2007
  • Summary: Despite some minor issues, the simple but feature-friendly YP-U2 from Samsung will be a hot seller, thanks to a sweet price and great overall sound quality. It's a good choice for budget-minded users looking for their first MP3 player.
  • Pros: The affordable Samsung YP-U2 is a supercompact MP3 player with a convenient plug-in USB design; it includes an FM tuner, a voice recorder, subscription compatibility, a legible LCD, and an intuitive interface. Plus, it features an extensive set of equalizer and DSP sound settings. Sound quality is quite impressive, but there is a caveat.
  • Cons: We're not thrilled with the placement of the headphone jack, the so-so battery life, the subpar voice-recording quality, and the audible clicks when starting or stopping a song. Additionally, the Samsung YP-U2 does not ship with a lanyard or an armband, and it currently maxes out at 512MB.

Samsung YP-U2JXB review

Hardware in Review
21 August 2006
  • Conclusion: I have never trusted hard drive-based players as I am something of a klutz. The Samsung YP-MT6 had served me very well, even surviving a night soaked in a puddle in my car's door during a rain flood. Sadly, it was left unusable by the same thing that killed my previous player -- an iRiver -- the joystick failed.

Erfolgs-Nachfolger: Samsung YP-U2

netzwelt
25 September 2007
  • Summary: Aus einem simpel gestrickten USB-Stick mit Musikfunktion wurde ein fast schon edler MP3-Player mit Datenfunktion. Diese Metamorphose ist Samsung eindrucksvoll gelungen. Genauso einfach zu bedienen wie der Vorgänger, dafür im Klang deutlich aufgewertet, ist der Aufpreis von gerade einmal 15 Euro für die Zwei-Gigabyte-Version gerechtfertigt. Für diesen Mehrpreis bekommt der Käufer nicht nur klanglich, sondern auch optisch etwas geboten.

9 August 2006
  • Summary: Samsung YP-U2 продолжает «дело предшественника», являясь весьма неплохим гибридом аудиоплеера и флэш-диска. Он не приковывает внимания, хотя и имеет некоторую имиджевую составляющую в виде подсветки крышки штекера. Сильными сторонами плеера являются качественный дисплей и весьма неплохое звучание. В целом модель соответствует общему уровню всей линейки Samsung и занимает место в ее среднем сегменте.

  • Conclusion: Pour son baladeur, le constructeur coréen a misé sur la qualité audio. De petits défauts de conception ne viendront pas gâcher la bonne impression laissée par ce lecteur pourvu de 512 Mo de mémoire Flash.
