Well this is just the neatest little touchscreen media player I have ever come across. Beautifully made and able to play a great variety of files, both video and audio. I have the 16gb version and find that to be adequate for most of my listening and viewing. Has an games, an e-book reader and FM radio built-in. Also has a DJ mixing deck which to me is useless other than a toy. Can be connected to TV to play Divx and other types of file but the lead to enable this is not supplied. The only fault I can find is that it is very difficult to keep a grip on the smooth finished surface. Would have been better if there had been some rubberising somewhere on the body to help hold on. I have had a couple of near drops in the first few days of owning this player. There are a couple of leather cases on the market for these at the moment so I am buying one of these straight off before anything happens. I found the headphones a great in-ear fit and a tangleproof cable but they don't have the base resonance and clear dynamic sound of my Koss Sparkplugs. All in all more versatile and much easier on the pocket than the Archos and I-pod range. Highly recommended!

Chose this player due to great specs at a decent price.

This is my second Samsung - 1st one was a yp-p2 that served me well for nearly 2 years, when it was time to buy a new one I originally went to Sony based on specs, but due to problem had to return it, and took this one instead - Got everything that I had with the P2, but:
1) Smaller and lighter - it fits into the palm of your hand
2) 4x bigger memory
3) With DNSe 3.0, better sound than the award winning audio of the P2
4) Cheaper

Sound quality: Absolutely brilliant, better than my P2 and a similarly specced Sony that I had for about a week. Very tweakable sound with both presets and bespoke settings, to suit your tastes, musical genre, and/or headphones used. I understand from reviews the YP-P3 at a pinch sounds better, but this is pretty superb, especially given its coming out of a box half the size of a mobile phone.

Build: All metal body, and glass screen. Very light so doesn't have the tank like feel of the P2 or P3 but still very well put together.

Functionality: Haven't got into all the add-ins yet, but it's got all the bells and whistles I want, including:
1) FM radio w recording
2) Voice recording
3) Great video player compatible w a huge number of different codecs (eg, I've simply dragged and dropped most of the videos I've got on it)
4) BBC iplayer compatible
5) Bluetooth for connecting bt headsets or speakers, can take incoming calls from your bt connected phone (!), and apparently (tho haven't tried it yet) even supports file transfer to other bt devices!

Not much in terms of cons - No speaker if that's important for you, and due to tiny size the rated battery life is 25hrs rather than the 30-35 hrs of bigger units. Love it, and would highly recommend.

I've become a bit of a Samsung enthusiast, their products just keep impressing me. This adds to my Laptop, PC Monitor, and LED TV! If there's one thing they have in common, it's a great quality screen. I would definitely recommend this device if you're looking especially for a video player.

I'm not an audio nerd but the sound quality seems pretty good to me. User Interface is intuitive, easy to use. Memory is plenty for me. I'm not looking to have all the music in the world on it, only my favourite 1000+ songs and a few films, what more do you really need!?! Not to mention the little thing is a gorgeous piece of design, with flawless build quality! I'm Trying to sell it to you because I'm so impressed.

Can't fault it as of yet :D we'll see how the battery fairs, some light use today, still at 88%. You need one.

At first glance this looked to be the perfect player. Great sound quality, lovely touchscreen, plays most audio formats but there are big problems.

The bundled software (Emodio) is awful and repeatedly crashed on me. It also cannot find the latest firmware for the player.

There are also outstanding firmware bugs:
Ogg and flac files won't list the artist and album titles correctly after transfer even though the PC software lists them. It will also progressively lose some of the tags it does have after a synch.

The following is the real killer bug. After synching, the player can hang whilst updating the players media database - this requires a hard restart. Sometimes the player restarts but eventually (this happened to the 2 players I had) the YP-R1 goes into "recovering firmware" mode and hangs at the boot screen. At this point the player totally dead. This was with latest firmware version (3.03) installed as well.

Neither of the players I had lasted a week before bricking themselves. I now have a Sony X-series walkman instead. A bit more expensive (even though they are heavily discounted now) but it is a finished product that works brilliantly.

I was looking for a replacement for my now defunct Creative Vision M and was having a time of it looking for a player that was portable but still had a good array of codecs equipped to play lots of formats, since my music collection is made up of .wma, .mp3, .mp4s etc etc as well as having the compatibility to play Divx/Xvid's. This player fit the bill perfectly.

Good points:
-Easy to slip into your pocket
-Good array of codecs - drag and drop audio and video files in without conversion (which I never have patience for). Much better than limited format players like a certain "i" branded product!!
-BBC iPlayer compatible
-The screen looks small in photos, but it's very clear and has a large viewing angle without any colour distortion. It's lovely for watching videos on the bus! Widescreen-formatted programmes especially look very good as they fill the whole screen.
-Good audio performance with DNS enhancements to give different audio "environments" for playing
-Good responsive touchscreen (make sure you upgrade to the latest firmware 3.00)
-You can flip the music playing screen (not the main "icon" screen though) vertically if you want to
-Comprehensive music browsing tools - sort by Artist, Album, Song, browse within Album feature etc.
-Volume controls are via hardware buttons on the right of the screen, rather than via a touchscreen interface, which means there's no nasty moments where you can't get to the volume control at once before you blow your ears out
-You can use Windows Media Player or Explorer to view the player and sync up files if you don't want to use Samsung's own software.
