The good: Line-in and FM recording; FM transmitter; 20GB capacity; USB 1.1/2.0.
The bad: Clumsy playlist handling; no option for playing all tracks on the device; dim LCD backlighting.
The bottom line: This player clearly bests the iPod in terms of features but not in design.

Summary: the reason i bought this player was because i had downloaded lots of music from napster and needed a compatible player. i enjoyed the sound quality but after about 3 months the only way to power it on was to hold+reset+unhold. i also disliked the fact that at the end of a song it would stop and i had to select the next one to play. i am getting a creative zen micro and using this player as a flash drive.

Great Player Great Warranty, Future Napster to Go Support
by coold8 on March 16, 2005
Pros: Battery Life is Great, Samsung's support is not greedy, will give you 2 months leeway if your product breaks out of warranty, also battery replacements only $8 instead of $80 like on IPod.
Cons: FM Transmitter works like a cat playing a guitar. Easy to loose antenna stub, slow transfer speeds of Napster Music.
Summary: This is a great player. I have had it for around 6 months now. When I got it out of the box there was a problem with it, so I ...
Summary: This is a great player. I have had it for around 6 months now. When I got it out of the box there was a problem with it, so I send it in to Samsung, and they send me a whole new player back. I use it daily and listen for many hours. I have almost 2,000 songs on it. I love it! I have spoke to Napster To Go Today, and they let me know that this player will be compatible with Napster To Go within the next month. I love the sound quality, and I feel it is a great Ipod replacement. Never buy an IPOD in my opinion when you can pick this up off ebay for around $130. $300 or $130? What do you want looks or overall quality. Great Player highly recommend it and Samsung Support is amazing. They will give you an extra 2 months if it dies, and they will also replace the battery out of warranty for only $8 (including return shipping)! Almost $80 on iPod. Thanks for a great player Samsung!
second best after the ipod.
Pros: decent sound, lots of memory, very easy to transfer music onto, relatively easy to navigate, FM radio and transmitter, voice recorder.
Cons: scroller is annoyingly slow, ugly design, no games like in the ipods, not very sturdy (mine went kaput one day because it fell from my desk and would not turn on, so i had to get it serviced.)
Pretty good player, great sound
Pros: Great sound, lots of storage space, ok design, battery life is sufficient.
Cons: Setting up play list and putting music on the device via napster site is kinda frustrating at first.
Pros: The FM transmitter is great, and I easily organized my MP3s with the program.
Cons: Product freezes regularly, and quits working as an MP3 player at about 70% capacity. However, it will still function as an external HD.
Its not *that* bad.
Pros: Firstly, let me set the record straight. You do not need the bundled napster software in order to load songs onto this machine. Many reviews claim that you do. The manual pretty much claims that this is the only way, its not a manual really but an advert
Cons: A few cons, i'll try to be be too harsh. 1, The look of thing, i've already mentioned this. If the specs or the price are more important than the looks not a bad choice. 2, Unintuitive means of file searching. Moving through the menu you use a square butt
Good Tech Support. Poor quality software
Pros: Responsive Tech support.
Cons: Seems the program to load the device crashes when loading too many mp3 files. Also, the need to constantly connect to napster to copy mp3 files from your own hard drive is inconvenient -- loading the device takes DAYS.
lots of storage; hard to use
Pros: looks cool but thats about it
Cons: Fm transmitter does not work with most stereos ive tried and when it does the sound quality is poor. The worst thing is loading new music. EVERYTHING has to be done on Your computer.No making playlist on the go. Also problems with updateing songs, when yo
Pros: its way better than the "ipod" its sweet how you can record songs directly from the radio
Cons: fm radie isnt that great but still awesome
