An excellent mp3 player, the screen shows the order the songs are stored on it. Easy to download tunes onto and maintain. The only problem is that there is no separate battery, the only way to charge it is through a usb port on a laptop/computer so with a battery life of about 15 hours it is not a good choice if you want it to take on holiday (unless you decide to take a laptop with you just to charge it!!).

Recently bought the YP-U1X and I can't fault it in any way. I had no problems connecting player to computer (Windows XP does not even require drivers to be installed), and transferring tracks is a breeze, either drag and drop through Windows or sync through WMP10. The player is very easy to use, tracks are easily fould via a folder system, and the quality of the sound using the built in equaliser and supplied headphones is fantastic. The unit also acts as a removable storage drive, so is great for people who want to transfer documents as well as listen to their favourite tracks. Only one slight downside, the unit recharges via the USB port on a computer and does not come with an AC adaptor as stated on the Product Info page, so if you need an MP3 player for travelling where there won't be a PC, you may want to look elsewhere. Basically this unit is fantastic value for money, sounds better, is easier to use and has more features than units costing double its money. Buy It!!

This does everything I want: it plays OGG files (oh, and MP3s and WMAs too), and it was immediately visible as removable storage under both Windows XP and Mandriva Linux.
You can organize files in folders, and the foldaway connector and rechargeable battery are nice to have too.
I docked it a star due to the rather odd order that files are played in - this seems to be due to it looking at the short DOS-style filename instead of the full filename when sorting tracks.

Looks great, and worked out of the box with Windows XP and ripped CD's. BUT it took a major mission to get success with (legally) downloaded software which had Windows DRM protection. Only after calls to the Samsung helpline did I establish the firmware needed an update before this would work. This was really tricky, so unless you're confident (or until they come with the new firmware ready installed) I wouldn't recommend it.

Got 12 months of good service from this, and then in the last few weeks it's stopped charging up. The computer doesn't recognise it, and it's difficult now that the battery's on one bar. I have to buy a new MP3 player tomorrow, and I'm losing all my files; including an A level English essay.

I've used this MP3 player pretty much every day since I got it, and I'll miss it.

I know this isn't just a problem for me, as I've been on several different sites and read a review here, and seen that it's happening to a few people.

Fixing it without the warranty means it would cost less to buy a new one.

Pretty good otherwise, but I'm going for a battery powered one next time!

Completely tired of trying to make this work. My PC (running XP) hasn't recognised it for more than two seconds, and I haven't been able to use it at all. The Samsung website doesn't even list it for support and on browsing some tech support and consumer guides, I find that a lot of people have had the same problem and there aren't any quick fixes out there. Some people have been able to sort out this issue by only using the USB ports directly connected to the motherboard (ie: the back ones, on a pc), but it hasn't worked for me. I'm going back to a Creative Zen and thank god for Amazon's return policy.

Owned for over 3 years now and it still works perfectly, never let me down! all of the buttons feel very firm, the whole player is built well, and by the fact that it charges via built-in usb - you dont need an ac or usb cable to charge it!
