So after umming and ahhing over getting an MP3 for absolutely ages, I took the plunge and bought one last week. I guess I took my time trying to find an MP3 player mainly because I don’t really get the oppurtunity to use one often (I drive to work) and also I had to be sure that it worked easily with Linux. I didn’t want to get stuck with some MP3 player (*cough* ipod) that only worked with special software (yeah, I know they work with Linux now, but I really didn’t want any fussing around at all).
So quite a while ago, I identified that Samsung’s players were compatible with Linux. They basically just plug into a computer, it comes up as a USB flash disk and you just drag and drop the MP3 files (or OGG or WMA which this player supports) onto the disk.
The model that I ended up with was the Samsung YP-U2X which has a 1Gb capacity. It should be enough to keep me going as I have more interest in listening to podcasts from Triple J and ABC Radio National more than storing stacks of music files on it.
I guess what ended up being the catalyst for getting one was wanting to listen to something while I went for runs. Running was also the reason why I went for a flash player and not a hard disk based player. Another nice thing about this MP3 player also was that it has an FM tuner in it, which I didn’t even realise it had when I bought it. Bonus!
All in all, its a really nice player and a good buy at AU$179.

Hello. Do you know of any case (hard or soft) for this player? I just was presented with one and don’t want to scratch it. Any help will be very wellcomed.
Hey Dave! I got a YP-U1Z a few months back and I love it. Like you, I have no purpose for a multiple-gig monster (that’s what Benn’s hard drive is for!), so it’s just perfect.
That’s one nice looking unit. You raise an interesting point about listening to podcasts whilst out on a run, audio books might be another option, and the FM tuner makes for a nice bonus feature !
Thanks for the review.
You would have though that you could get a cool mp3 player by samsung at this price. I really like the YP-U1Z it is very versatile and it looks cool as well.
Yeah, that was my first Mp3 Player, damn..this one was $179 xD .. Now you get a Ipod Video with about 2-4 GB for that money.
Anyway, thx for review.
Recently acquired YP-U1Z. While all like!
Nice mp3 player. I have owned one for a while now and I am very happy with it.
I agree, listening to music while running really helps with the motivation. I have an older Sony mp3 flash player which still works ok, but may need to go for an upgrade one of these days.
