Excerpt: Before I finally cracked and bought myself an ipod, but after my Zune crashed, I thought I had decided I was done spending money on electronics, and ended up buying a cheapie little mp3 player. The Samsung U5, which cost me about $40. That still wasn’t as cheap as …
Summary: This is my third purchase of the Samsung Yepp YP-U5. I have had my first one for 4 years and have been very pleased with it, including the battery life. The clarity of the recording off the FM radio is amazing. For under $100 you get an amazing product with great features.
Summary: I LOVED this mp3 player. I am so sorry it finally wore out. I've bought Sansa Clips, and two broke promptly, the third was defective when I received it. Why did they have to discontinue this product? This was a great mp3 player, far better than Apple. I blame MBAs.
Summary: I've had the Samsung U5 for at least 2+ years now. I use it for running and on way in to work while on the bus. After the first 3 or 4 months I had a problem with my U5. After returning from a run I couldn't get it to turn off. Then when the battery gave out it wouldn't charge.
Summary: Didn't even use it that much and one day after a few months it wouldn't turn on and wouldn't charge or show up when plugged into computer. Tried the reset button and everything, still completely dead.
Summary: Only used a few months, then one day it wouldn't turn on, wouldn't charge. Tried to reset and everything, still completely dead. Seems to have happened to a few other people, hit or miss when you buy this.
Summary: I have a Samsung YP-U2 since 2006, but it stopped to work due to battery malfunction. So, I looked for a mp3 player that could replace it, that have two useful tools I use a lot: Repeat A-B (Select a part of the music to repeat) and Play Speed (From 0.7x to 1.3x).
Summary: I made a list of the criteria I was looking for when I first honed in on Samsung's YP-U2 a number of years ago -- some things that were lacking from a number of large players with large screens that seemed to dominate the market.
Summary: I have no complaints for this item. It's simple and easy to use. Granted, the controls aren't labelled, but once you get acquainted with it, there's no problem, and it doesn't take long to become familiarized with the controls and functions.
