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: I love this mp3 player. It's compact, it can hold a lot of music, and it's very simple to use. My only complaint on it is that it freezes up sometimes when I go to skip a song. (even at times when I'm not exercising) And then I have to find a safety pin so I can push the tiny reset button.
Summary: I mispurchased this MP3 player. It is great, but I am still disappointed. I wanted to have a battery so I could listen instead of waiting hours to have it recharge. This was my mistake. The device works very well. The sound is good. The shipped earphones are standard and barely o.k.
Summary: I own the Hello Kitty edition that was available in Germany 2 years ago. Never had any problems with it. Fast data transfer, very loud, good sound, good radio, sturdy design, the print is still not scratched. Very accessible buttons, too. Trust me, some players don't have that.
Summary: I have had four MP3 players. This is a nice one, not perfect but quite good, especially considering the price. I have been using this device for about six months. There are two things I do not like about it. One is that the controls are symmetrical, so I cannot operate the device by touch.
Summary: Once you figure out how to use it, it's a great little gadget!! The sound quality is wonderful and I just clip it to the collar of my shirt and go! I love it! The only problem is, if you haven't used one before, it can get frustrating to figure it out.
Superior alternative to many of the ultra-portable mp3 players on the market.
8 June 2010
Summary: If you're in the market for an ultra-portable mp3 player, this product deserves serious consideration. -Easy drag-and-drop interface allows easy mp3 additions or deletions without the use of proprietary software. -Built-in tuner offers a nice alternative to your mp3 rotation.
Summary: I got this MP3 so I can listen to the radio while I run. I have enjoyed it so far and it picks up the radio stations I enjoy listening to. I'm happy with the product. I just wish the clip was a little sturdier.
Summary: The mp3 player works fine and the earphones have good audio quality. Its simple and linear look is nice, although there are some inconvenience, a quite big one being the hold function is only available when the mp3 player is on, while you would need it also when it's off to prevent it switching on...
