Summary: There are a number of pluses to this player. I've had a number of them and knew exactly what i wanted going in. The built in USB is very handy and the soundstyles are great, especially the 3D styles. Battery life is reasonable, and it's a good color to prevent getting lost. If you are a casual user, this is a good choice. My complaints- The touch interface can't always tell which button you are touching. A song can only be added to one playlist.
Summary: This is a good MP3 player , It is simple to use . It plugs right into my Laptop and I can click and sync music right away in Windows Media Player. The downside is the player when I am running or working out the sound cuts out because the connection to the headphones is a piece of crap.If you are buying an MP3 player for running or anything that is gonna be jostle the cord around very much don't buy this player.
Summary: I don't have any complaints about the device it self. It was easy to use, easy to find songs, and the sound was 4 and half of 5 star quality. However, use alternate headphone's then the lame ones that come with this one, a lot of people think the sound of this device is bad, but it's actually just the headphones. It contains the features you expect, such as random play, search etc..
kinda stupid player, unable to sort files by folder
20 April 2008
Summary: I bought this player because it supports ogg vorbis, and.....pitch control, that is useful when I play radio archive now, I have to rant about... 1. why I can't open audio files by folder? that all files copied to the player are completely out of order, while my audio files are put by folder, and end up to get Samsung Media Studio to make up playlist, even I can't use the playlist associated with files, HOW STUPID IT IS!!! 2.
Summary: The USB connection is great - just press a button and the connector pops out. However the touchpad that controls volume, rewind, and fast forward are very tricky - they are not raised from the face of the player so you can't know where to press without looking at them, and they are very sensitive. They are basically impossible to use at night - if you try to turn up the volume and place your finger in the wrong area you will end up skipping to the next track.
Summary: I already owned the Samsung YP-U2 before I bought the YP-U3 recently. I use Linux as my OS and a dominant music compression program available with most distributions is OGG-Vorbis, which does have not the legal baggage associated with MP3. So when Samsung advertisements stated that the YP-U3 offered OGG-Vorbis I jumped at the chance to buy one. However, Samsung's technology has begun to bow to the Windows way of doing things.
Summary: Perhaps I'm too old or my hands are too big, but my recent purchase of the Samsung YP-U3JQB 2 Gb Touch Control MP3 Player has left me using my old radio/cassette Walkman again. With my Walkman I can see the buttons and nothing happens without me knowing why. I know that if I use the radio today, tomorrow when I use it again, it will be just as I left it.
Summary: After reading a good review in one of my computer magazines I decided to buy this. I like the fact one isn't tied to Apple. There isn't much in the way of visuals on this. You have a very small display screen in black and white. My biggest gripe is the device is very small so when you handle it you can't help but hit the buttons which are very sensative. I don't have large hands so I imagine a person with them would have even a harder time manipulating the controls.
