Samsung Yepp 780V MP3 Player ReviewFormer staff writer - December 22, 2004
As for the Software, finally I'm going to review it, because this time around it's actually good! The software itself is incredibly straightforward, with one screen for arranging the playlist you'd like on the Yepp, and one to show what you already have on the Yepp. The transfers are as simple as a click of a button, and the music on the Yepp is arranged as it was on your computer Playlist.
On top of that, the Yepp will add to your music library new music that isn't in there, and allows easy surfing to find music and recordings in different folders, as well as any additional files that are on there (conveniently in the ETC folder) if you choose to use the Yepp as a USB key.
Last but not least, the Yepp Studio allows you to create Albums, which can be drag/dropped onto the Yepp, instead of having to arrange the Playlist every time. That means if you have a couple albums you feel like having on there, they're all seperated, and in order.
Finally Samsung has it right - except for ONE PART! The USB is STILL 1.1! That's archaic! If the YP-780V had USB 2.0 support, I'd be forced to declare it a perfect solid-state MP3 player. As is, the YP-780V is an incredible player, both feature-rich and incredibly easy to use. This MP3 player has the others beat, and with Samsung's refinements, finally the YP-780V will earn the coveted Editor's Choice Award! Congrats to Samsung on creating a comprehensive, easy-to-use MP3 player.
