"Samsung YP-Z5"

Samsung YP-Z5 the player has a better sound and battery life, compared to the ipod Nano. I have had my 1GB player for about 4 months now,

Don't be put off about the controls, you get used to it pretty quick and wonder what all the fuss was about. But When I first used the controls I was pressing down a little to had on the pad and then it stared to go all funky on me, it would just only go up or down, this problem was resolved by resting the player.

Transferring music is incredibly straight forward through Windows Media player. Grab an album from your list and drop it across in the sync list and on the player it goes!.
Some files that I had copied across from my pc didn’t play, if think this was due to just dragging and dropping the files.

The screen is ok, you can also use it to store images but they do tend to take a long time to load.

Over all it’s a great little player and is giving the nano a run for its money
