[review] Samsung YP-T8


Recommended Posts

Some two weeks ago, I went to Holland for a trip and I had decided from before that I would buy a mp3 player from there (way cheaper than here, ZEN vision here is about 700€ and there it was 300€). Anyway, I had in mind an iPod nano 2gigs. But there wasn't available in the airport's shop so I had to buy something else. I looked at many mp3 players but I was mainly attracted by the YP-T8 of samsung (although it was the most expensive 240€ without VAT :cry: ). Anyway I opted for the one gig version (the biggest available, the 2gigs weren't available at the time).

I bought it and I must admit that I am really happy with what I chose. It supports: text, music, photo, video, radio, games and has a USB host that works with most mp3 players/digital cameras and flash discs :). The battery life is the longest of all mp3 players I have had (Sony MD, Creative Rhomba, Creative ZEN xtra) and is enough to use about 3-4 hours per day and charge twice a week.

It has some cool features that I haven't seen in any other mp3 player like motion-detecting games...It supports ID3 tagging (artist, album, track). the package was quite full containing the device, an AC charger, a USB cable, a USB-host cable, some really good head-phones a cable for the line in (the slot isn't 3.5mm) and a nice case.

yea it reminds me alot of a cellphone. and 240euros for a 1gb mp3 player is just plain ripoff. there's way better deal for it.

I was going to spend that money anyway... And the 1Gig seemed just fine. I don't like the Zen mini Photo (screen sucks) and the Zen Vision is way to big for me. I want it all the time in my pocket. Also the usb host is really important as my Digicam is only 128megz... Anyway, I used the iPod nano of a friend of mine and OK it's sleek but I prefer the extra features of the YP-T8... :)

Yepp, YP-T8 is really cool and worhty! :D

I spent and checked some obvious mp3 players, but there's no one can make me pleasure and happy like samsung YP-T8: music, movie, photo, text, radio, recorder, host, game.... :laugh: (oh my god) and all accessories u need instead u have to buy for other mp3 players. Iriver U10, Ipod nano, Creative zen photo.... they're all sucker :angry: .

But it's pity, once in US version the yp-t8 don't show up the lyric. In Korean version, people can listen music and look into the screen to sing along the music fit neatly with the words, that's really make me wanna jumping and dancing. Is there anyone here know how to change the US version --> Korean version in the yp-t8? waoo... it will be so incredible, but YP-T8 is still the best.
