Samsung Yepp YP-T7Z 1GB MP3 Player Review

Closer Look (Cont.)
Once again we have a simple player that requires you just drag and drop onto the player to transfer music. This time though, you can seperate albums and so on, and so long as the music is in the order you want within the folder, that's the way it plays. As well, the T7Z's display screen shows you the upcoming playlist, and does allow you to pick and play favourites as a playlist. Overall, music navigation was quite easy, so long as the music is seperated the way you like beforehand. This proved extremely useful in listening to live concerts, as the break between songs that you'll find in most players was virtually non-existant.

The Software packaged with the player is a generic MP3-player, akin to a Windows Media Player, that allows you to create music playlists, but apparently just for your computer, as there is no real transfer abilities built in. Overall, pretty useless if you're okay with WinAmp or iTunes and so on.


Conclusion
I think with the creation of the T7Z Samsung has created something on par with some of the leading lines of MP3 players (which, veribly, Samsung has become). With a colour screen, easy navigation, excellent sound quality, a large storage capacity and finally upgraded USB 2.0, the Yepp T7Z is an accomplishment that I'm sure Samsung's future lines of MP3 players will be directly based off of. Furthermore, the ability to use the player as a storage device for files and so on (and believe me, I've done it) doesn't inhibit the use of the player at all, which I find very useful.

Pros

  • Small physical size
  • Colour screen
  • Easy navigation
  • USB 2.0
  • Large 1 Gig storage capacity
  • Great manual
  • Long battery life (and its built-in!)
  • Useful accessories already included

 

Cons

  • Clunky swivel-stick controls
