    5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and perfect in every way 16 Nov 2010
    Colour Name:Black|Size Name:4GB
    My old MP3 player had been starting to play up so I wanted a new one for Christmas. I looked around and was torn between this one and the Sony NWZB153B B Series Walkman 4GB. I think, in my own opinion, I have the better of the two.

    If you're in the same predicament here's my reason why I choose this and why I think it'll help in this review to help you make up your own mind.

    1 - I had the build in slide USB connection. Granted so does the Sony however there isn't a cap to lose. Which is easy by all accounts. I check this out before hand in my local Currys store and the cap is easy to remove. I like something to have a firm fit and it's just a little too easy to remove. Where as the U6 has the slide USB connector. It's brilliant and has a great positive lock at the end, which you can feel under your thumb.

    2 - Aluminium body. this feels great and give it a high quality build finish. The Sony feels great too but there's a bit too much plastic

    3 - Display. The display is good as well. It's small but that's not a bad thing (battery life will not be as affected). It has a four line display with is sufficient to see what you're doing in the menus. Plus it's colour. I appreciate this isn't a deal breaker but you can add your person touch to it (text colour and even a little popcorn character which greats you when you turn on the device, and is present if there album art is missing.... oh did I mention you get the album art on the small screen too?)

    4 - Easy to use. If you've ever used a USB flash drive then you're already qualified enough to use this. You plug it in, your computer recognises it and you can drag and drop in albums from your harddrive. It's so easy.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Neat, Good Value Little Workhorse 13 Jan 2011
    By S. Thomas #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Colour Name:Black| Size Name:4GB|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Rather than reiterate the well reasoned existing reviews of this player, I will concentrate on why I find I am using it.

    Sometimes it is nice to have something that I can just slip in my pocket, not worry that it contains everything about me and also did not cost the earth.

    For the real aficionado I dare say the software has shortcomings but for me to be able to carry around dozens of albums, listen to the radio, audio books or even record a few reminders is quite enough. There are times when I become fatigued by sheer versatility and prefer a simple pen knife to a Swiss army knife.

    The fact that it is one piece (USB connector slides out) avoids the bane of my life - tops that come loose and/or extra charging cables. It can also be used just as a USB drive (and it was not so long ago that this capacity of USB stick would set you back the equivalent).

    Ironically, this unit is seeing more use than my Itouch simply because I have less of a tendency to treat it with kid gloves and as a result carry it round with me more.

    There is a fuller manual than the tiny supplied leaflet but you need to boot up the installed .exe file and view it on your pc. This gives a good run through for someone at my level (who has only just discovered that to rip does not just mean to damage).

    My player also came packed with a leaflet for a 50 free track offer from Emusic - DRM-free (enabling playback on any MP3 player) - if this (Samsung) offer is still current it makes the package a real bargain.

    I agree with other reviewers that the weak link at this level is usually the earphones and a separate good quality set from the likes of Sennheiser is a good investment. With premium earphones the sound quality of the underlying unit is good.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good but with potential to improve 23 Dec 2010
    Colour Name:Black| Size Name:2GB|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Firstly I was quite impressed by the finish to this device which is a nice matte black metal which feels sturdy but not weighty in the hand. I therefore think this would be ideal as a small commuting or fitness device as it is not only robust enough to cope with being carried around at the bottom of a bag for the day, or dropped whilst in the gym/outside training, it is also light enough to make a great portable device.

    In terms of layout and design, the power button and lock, function and back keys are positioned on one side (the top when held to read the screen), with the volume, play, pause stop etc all positioned in a squared design on the main front panel as seen in other MP3 players in Samsung's range. The screen is positioned to the left of the front panel and whilst quite small it is both bright and readable. The headphone socket, built-in microphone and strap connection are on one end (the one closest the screen - to the left when held to read the screen) with the other end taken up with the retractable USB connector. The back is clear apart from the USB connection slider at one end.

    The device also comes with the standard, and fairly basic headphones which are not the greatest quality, although this seems to be the industry standard these days and not unsurprising in a MP3 player in this budget. It also comes with some details for warranty and a quick start guide, although no proper manual which has to be accessed via the samsung website. Whilst this is increasingly common it does irritate me somewhat as this device is not the most intuitive I have used and I found it took me a little while to work out exactly what all the buttons did, and I frequently changed songs when I wanted to turn up the volume when I started using.
