The Samsung YP-U1Q MP3 player is a stylish yet straightforward unit featuring an easy-to-use circular silver control system located at one end of the players slick black body, which also has a contrasting cool backlit white LCD screen. This player provides superb value for its price with up to 15 hours continuous play, thanks to the built-in lithium polymer battery, and full support for all of the major music CODECs (MP3, WMA , Audio ASF and Ogg Vorbis).
The generous 2GB of internal memory can hold up to 1,000 songs and takes just seconds to fill due to the incorporated USB 2.0 connection. Another impressive aspect is the players ability to be used as a USB stick when it is connected to a PC, with no difference in function or size, as it does not need any drivers. The Samsung YP-U1Q is a high-quality player that impresses in both its overall design and sound reproduction, making it a genuine rival to alternative products

I did lots of reading and research and unless you go for some cheapo non-brand name MP3 player you will not get an MP3 player with a memory as large as this one anywhere for this low a price. This same Samsung model is currently selling in the high street at the same price but with only a 512MB memory!
2GB memory is probably all you'll need. I went for a flash drive MP3 player as I didn't really see the need to have your entire music collection with you. This one still gives you plenty of choice though - I've currently got just over 40 albums on this player (that's 500 odd MP3 tracks all @ 128kb)!
This particular player is as well built as the Sony ones I considered getting. Although it only weighs about the same as snack size Mars bar it doesn't feel fragile and has metal parts on all bits you'll be using the most - the buttons. Other models I looked at felt very flimsy but this one doesn't feel as if you're going to break something if you press too hard (or drop it!).
Thirty minutes after I had opened the box I had transferred all of the MP3s I wanted on it from my PC. Two hours after that it was fully charged and I was using it.
The navigation is very easy to use. I picked up the basics within a few minutes. All of the menus are very straightforward but at the same time give you stacks of options.
You can even store your own graphic equalizer settings. It's also very easy to make up a playlist from all of the albums you store on it.
You can locate a track, fast forward, rewind tracks etc. all very easily. As for the headphones, well I won't be replacing these as I think they're really very good actually. In fact this player has the best sound I've heard of any personal audio player I've owned.
I can't recommend this player enough.
Take a bow Samsung, you have struck gold with this product. If you are mulling over the choice of a new MP3 player, I can unconditionally recommend this.
Having recieved the player from Amazon a couple of days ago, I can confirm that the sound from this player is excellent. Also, it is very easy to use, and requires no software to load songs onto it.
I wanted an MP3 player for use on my journey to/from work, and when I go running. This fits the bill exactly, as it is small, lightweight and has 2GB storage.
This player avoids the usual pitfalls of most MP3 players. It's well made and looks good (most cheap ones are plasticy), it behaves properly (it's recognised by Windows as a new drive so forget the software that comes with it and just drag-and-drop files onto the player), it has an intuitive playlist (most devices have no playlist or complex ones - this has the simplest to use playlist I have come across), the headphones are fine (you usually have to replace the supplied ones), the sound quality is good (max all settings on the graphic equaliser to get the best quality) - and it's half the price of a similarly spec'd iPod.
It can be worn around your neck and I plan to wear it under my shirt on the way to and from the office.
One warning - you are encouraged to upgrade the player's firmware when you install the software that comes with the device - don't! - the update would have replaced my firmware with an *older* version! So Amazon is obviously shipping the latest firmware.
I bought this player to use down the gym - but it's so good it's going to replace my main MP3 player (a Creative Zen Micro). Unless you are an absolute audiophile, this player is ideal.
I replaced my Zen Micro (which gave up the ghost after only 12 months) with one of these. The hard drive players, including the Zen and Ipod are notoriously unreliable and finnicky. With my Zen Micro I was constantly having to try and get it connected to download songs, it was hanging, its battery life was rubbish... I could go on.
What a breath of fresh air this player is. Simply plug it into the usb port, it charges up. Click on "my computer" and it is listed as a removeable drive. Simply copy your MP3s, WMAs (including VBR) or Ogg Vorbis (the best quality encoding) files onto it as you would any hard drive on your computer. Once on the player, you can manipulate the files in windows just as if it is a hard drive- so, for example, you can create a new folder and move the songs around.
There is no messing about installing sofware, it simply works in Windows.
Depending upon the encoding rate of your MP3s you could easily get 50 albums on it. I would suggest using either Orbis or WMA at 64kbs Variable Bit Rate. Simply put your cd in your computer and use Windows Media player to rip the CD, remembering to set the desired bit rate under options first. If you encoded your cds all at this rate, they would sound as good as 128 kbs MP3s but you could get about 70 albums on the player!
After 5 minutes playing around with the player I had mastered the controls which are very intuitive.Read more ›
