Product makes untrue claims

Allen L. Thoren Sr. "Al", Amazon
18 October 2009
  • Summary: I can't remember the number of hours that were advertised for this product to last on one charge but it doesn't even come close. I get between 5 and 7 hours and if I remember correctly the claim was 14 or 15 hours. I use this for work and I need it to work 8 hours. I thought that even if it did not live up to it's claims it would at least make until I went home.

Small and lightweight, but buttons too easy to push.

Lisa Nelson RD "Lisa Nelson RD", Amazon
23 August 2008
  • Summary: I was all excited when this order arrived and it works great as long as you leave the "hold" switch on. If you accidentally bump it, it'll skip to the next recording. I use it to download teleclasses and listen while I drive. Works well for what I need, but if I went back I would choose a different MP3 player. Something that's less touchy.

It does NOT work as a USB Drive.

Wooque "IT", Amazon
9 January 2008
  • Summary: Note: This YP - U3 will NOT work as a USB Drive. it used to work, then Samsung & Microsoft Teamed up to update the firmwire in this device, it can NOT be used as a usb drive now. and it ONLY work on windows XP (not even 2000), no linux, no mac. And you will need Admin privilege to install the driver. (so if you want to transfer file between computer, this thing won't work). I am IT engineer so I did a lot research on this and managed to update the firm ware.

MTP takes a good device and ruins it

B. Dewhirst, Amazon
11 December 2007
  • Summary: I use Ubuntu Linux, and had I known that Samsung's media player used Microsoft's MTP format, I would never have bought this device. Locked DRM ghettos destroy the value a customer seeks in a product. The proprietary player which ships with the device requires Windows to run, and is vastly inferior to my existing media solution (Amarok). I can access the device with Ubuntu (the latest version, Gutsy Gibbon), but Samsung worked hard to spoil my experience.

Ummm, not quite.

D. Keogh, Amazon
18 October 2007
  • Summary: I read all the reviews of this player and also the sansa express. I wanted to an ultra-small player for the gym. Unfortunately, the heat-sensitive buttons on this player utterly ruin it for me. It is nearly impossible to change tracks or volume or navigate menu options without holding the player directly in front of you, and carefully (and slowly) pressing the correct location on the front with a finger.

SAMSUNG YP-U3 1GB MP3 PLAYER

sentroll, Gittigidiyor
1 September 2010
  • Summary: Ürün donanımı birinci sınıftır. Microchip yazılımı ihtiyaca tam olarak cevap verir. (Bu tür ürünlerden 7-8 tanesini kullandım, fiyat/performans olarak en iyi yazılım Samsung'da var.) Bellek 1 gb olarak biraz müzik dinlemek için düşük (Ben genelde ses kayıt amaçlı kullanıyorum.). Fiyat olarak alıcılara iyi araştırmalarını öneririm, farklı yerlerde farklı fiyatlara aynı ürün bulunabiliyor.

Samsung YP-U3JZB: No es un pendrive

countdown2000, Ciao
29 March 2009
  • Summary: Me compré este dispositivo porque buscaba uno de estas características. Y al ir a instalarlo, primera decepción: sólo es compatible con XP SP2 y Vista... y yo tengo Windows 2000. No obstante intenté instalarlo con el CD incluido, instalándome el Samsung Media Estudio, y también me obligo a actualizarme el Windows Media Player a la versión 9. Ponía que se necesitaba la 10, pero con la 9 dejaba instalarlo (con versiones inferiores no dejaba proseguir con la instalación).
  • Pros: Si tu PC lo soporta, es un dispositivo muy completo
  • Cons: Incompatible con muchos PC's

"MA DOVE VAI SE L'MP3 GIUSTO NON CE L'HAI?"

cru62, Ciao
16 June 2008
  • Summary: Avevo voglia di un mp3 Intanto perchè la possibilità di ascoltare radio e musica alla mattina prima di andare al lavoro, non mi è più sembrata prerogativa dei ragazzini, ma sana voglia di evadere dal rumore e dal vociare cittadino. La quantità di prodotti è confortante o sconfortante.... a seconda della propria capacità di acquistare oggetti tecnologici e di trovare il consiglio giusto.
  • Pros: piccolo, costo medio, buona qualità audio
  • Cons: radio non perfetta, complicazioni nella creazione delle liste

User Review

Pixmania
21 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Sur le papier, ce balladeur MP3 est impeccable : multicompatible, léger et discret, il fait la FM En réalité, je le trouve inutilisable. D'ailleurs je ne m'en sers plus. Les touches sensitives, ultrasensibles, réagissent au moindre frottement, et nécessitent impérativement d'être bloquées avec le bouton HOLD. Mais ce bouton est très mal placé, on le confond avec le bouton qui libère la fiche. Agacement garanti à chaque fois. Pour les podcasts, c'est très pénible.
  • Pros: Son de bonne qualité - Nombreux formats - fiche USB rétractable - radio FM
  • Cons: Touches sensitives qui n'apportent rien. Bouton hold mal placé. Pas d'accroche.
