Origianlly, I wanted Sandisk E270. But that thing is not going to be released in Canada anytime soon. So, I've decided to get YP-25 while I wait.
My first MP3 player was Creative Muvo 512MB. Because I am so used to drag-and-drop feature. I wanted my second MP3 player with the same feature. Unfortunately, Sandisk Sansa E200 series is the only one that meets all my needs, which is NOT AVAILABLE in Canada.
This is the box. It is very small. I could actually put it in my pocket.
Opened. It has the player and USB cable, A small manual plus Windows media player 10 CD underneath and earphones including earbuds.
The player in my hand.
Since I don't have any other MP3 player to compare its size. I put it side by side with my Creative Muvo player.
Though it does not support true drag-and-drop, it does support similar feature. As long as you have windows media 10 installed, you can simply drag and drop files to it.
What I do not like is that I can no longer organize files the way I want. The player forces organization of files by albums. I will have to get used to this or I will have to return.
It crashed once while I was testing.
The sound quality is certainly better than what Creative Muzo offered. Though I could barely tell the difference.
I could only test it up to 20 hours and the battery indicator still had about half left. This was after charing two hours via USB.
Certainly MUCH better than Creative Muzo. It feels very solid in my hand. It doesn't feel like it's made of plastic but metal. It feels cold to touch.
I actually liked the control. Though I had to practice a little bit. I had no problem with control itself, but rather controlling pushing force of my fingers.
1.8 inch color screen. It's very nice. The screen actually looked nicer than my IPAQ 4500.
I have no intention to use the player to view images. So, it wasn't my certain. I did not also wanted my MP3 player to have video playback feature. So, it wasn't my certain, either.
But, FYI, YP-25 does support jpg images, but doesn't support video playback.
I like it, but not fully. I am going to wait for Sandisk Sansa E270.
Hmm, I hope I did okay for my first MP3 player review.
Thanks for reading.
