Samsung Yepp T5V MP3 Player ReviewFormer staff writer - October 27, 2004

Greetings and welcome to another OverClockersClub review. Once again, I'll be looking at a new offering from the Samsung Digital department, this time the Yepp T5V 256M MP3 player. If you'll all recall, the last offering was the Yepp 55i, a good looking package, but a sadly incomplete feeling unit. Will the T5V be able to change the tempo for these Samsung MP3 players? Let's take a look.
Again with the T5V we see the Samsung typical plastic clamshell packaging. Again, I'll note that the packaging is really solid and safe feeling, but with the distinct disadvantage of never being to use the package again once you tear into it. The T5V is proudly floating on the top of the package, with the accessories tucked away hidden underneath at the bottom of the package.
After tearing the packagin open, we find inside:
- The YP-T5V
- Basic earbuds
- One AAA battery
- One neck strap
- One carrying case
- Quick-connect USB attachment
- USB cable
- Instuction manual and installation CD
- Line-in cable
Again, the detail in the T5V is very detailed; seemingly even more so then the YP-55i. Once again, the included drivers and software really aren't needed, with the USB drivers already being installed if you have any recent copy of Windows from the past decade or so and the software isn't really necessary either, unfortunately. Same as the 55i, the software isn't very well put together, and is rather redundant overall. It makes sense, seeing as it’s the same piece of software.
