3.0 out of 5 stars ok player - but better choices available 29 Oct 2010
By Don Panik TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Given the dominance of the ipod in the mp3 player field, Samsung are not in the premier league, but I have had good experiences of their products, and still occasionally use a Samsung 500 meg mp3 player which must be 6 years old. Of course that product uses a rechargeable AA battery, whereas the current trend is for smaller lighter machines which have a non replaceable integrated battery. And it does seem as though the battery is the weak spot of these machines, some reportedly only lasting a few weeks. Time will tell on that front.

This model is at the cheap end of the market, in fact I have seen the 8gb model selling for the price of a couple of CDs! My overall experience of it is good so far, but there are better machines to choose for about the same cost.

The good bits:
- Plays wide range of file types not just mp3
- Music reproduction is excellent and very tweakable to suit context and preferences
- Can drag and drop as well as MTP (the latter works better in getting the album covers properly transferred)
- Radio is RDS and reception is ok
- Screen is clear and there is a choice of fonts
- The touch pad is quite neat when you get used to it
- Has a user definable button on side
- Includes all the normal video / picture viewing facilities that are now common
- Can add to playlist on the machine
- Can play from folders

The not so good bits
- It is very plastic - reasonable quality but will not wear well
- Can only safely be charged from PC not mains
- Yet another make specific cable connection (will manufactures ever standardise to mini usb?

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not bad 31 Mar 2011
By Jennifer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
On first glance, I thought how much the Samsung Q2 looks very similar to my Samsung mobile phone. The size, weight and design are not a lot different my mobile. Indeed the main difference is the colour as this MP3 player is white with a silver edging.
I have always been happy with my Samsung mobile and have owned three by this brand, so I hoped that I would find the MP3 player to be as satisfactory and easy to use as my mobile, given that I am not a very technically-minded person.
Bearing that in mind, I searched the box for the operating instructions, to find only a tiny paper booklet showing you how to connect the MP3 player to your pc, a diagram of what the buttons and touch sensitive buttons were for and a small diagram on how to listen to music. To be honest most of these things I could have fathomed out for myself, it was instructions on tranferring music etc that I wanted information on. Never mind I thought, maybe when I plugged it in, there would be some sort of on-screen tutorial or instructions and on scanning once more through the tiny booklet, I did indeed notice that you are informed that there is a user manual and pc program to download once you connect the MP3 player to your computer via the USB cable provided. So, I plugged it in as directed and this is where my problems began...

Despite following the instructions to access the user manual, it would not work. I tried it several times and then summoned my daughter to assist as she has a far greater knowledge than me about things like this.
My daughter was unable to access it either, but did tell me that I didn't need it anyway as it was easy.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not bad 28 Nov 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
With a certain other MP3 player dominating the market other offerings are often overlooked. This Samsung one is certainly not going to cause a stir, but for anyone who just simply wants to listen to music without having the latest high end gadget, it's not half bad.

The first thing I immediately notice with this MP3 player is just how light weight it is. It's not too small an MP3 player but it's so incredibly light weight that you might mistaken it for a dummy model. The player does have an integrated battery, as most mp3 players do, and it is rather good looking. It has a colourful screen and a nice sleek feel to it, making it look more expensive than it really is. One downside is that you can't charge this up from the wall, it has to be connected to your PC. It also doesn't use a standard USB cable either, so you will always have to hunt out the one made for this player.

It's only 4GB, which in today's market isn't much, but it offers drag and drop for your files. The touch pad does take a while to get used to but once you have mastered it then it's quite easy to navigate through the menus.
The music quality itself isn't bad, though the supplied ear phones aren't the type I prefer to use, I did test them but they weren't as good as using your own.

Overall not a bad MP3 player if you want something extremely light weight. It's not too expensive and makes for a decent cheap MP3 player.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the money, but nothing spectacular 28 Oct 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Of all the modern gadgets that we take for granted these days the cell phone and the media player are the most commonplace. As with all technology as it refines the prices drop and the model numbers multiply. This is the second Samsung MP3 player I have owned and in the three years between them nothing has changed.

The build quality of the product is far superior to my previous model, it's sturdier and smoother. But the features are more or less identical.


The stats list a 4GB memory. This is untrue, it's 3.5GB. Forgive my pedantry but 500MB is a pretty big margin of error.

Battery Life

Depending on what your doing and how much you keep the screen lit up we're talking between 2.5 to 3 hours battery life.


Pretty good at tuning in to your favorite stations. But, as usual, Classic FM has a terrible reception.


As expected it can take some time to transfer lots of tracks. But since it charges the device at the same time it's not such a pain. Album artwork is all over the place, out of sync and messy, which can be annoying for people who make an effort to get it all correct on their laptop or PC.

Video and Pictures

I don't understand why MP3 players have this function. If you want to show off videos there are other devices more suited to this feature. I just ignore it.


Apparently there are built in games. I have yet to try them, and I doubt I ever will. If I want to play games I will reach for my Nintendo DS.

Voice Recorder

Unless you are an investigative journalist seeking to record an unwitting confession I can't see any practical use for this feature.
