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.
Excerpt: Today we take a look at the new affordably price YP-U2 1GB MP3 Player that's going for around 70-80 US dollars. This sleek looking player not only boasts a gigabyte of storage, but can also play other formats other than MP3, including Ogg Vorbis and WMA.
Pros: Small Size, 1 GB capacity, Rechargeable battery built in, FM radio, Drag and Drop importing of songs, Voice recorder
