Conclusion

For the most part, I like the Samsung YP-K5. The build quality is great, the sound quality is quite good, and the integrated speaker is a very interesting and unique feature. Obviously, the speaker isn't the loudest thing in the world, despite what Samsung's "boombox" commercials may lead you to believe, but it's still handy to have. However, because there is an integrated speaker, the player is quite thick. This can be quite a deterrent for people thinking of switching from an iPod nano, for example.

If you don't want a speaker, but enjoy all the other features found in the YP-K5, then you can have a look at its speaker-less cousin, the Samsung YP-K3. That player is fundamentally identical in every way with the exception of the speaker. ThinkComputers give the Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player an 8 out of 10 score.


Pros:

- Touch sensitive controls and "hidden" color display are attractive
- Integrated speaker
- Excellent build quality
- Good sound quality with unique earbuds

Cons:

- Considerably bulkier than iPod nano
- Speaker not that loud
