Good: Radio, Bluetooth, nice size and construction, cheap deal
Bad: Software, radio inteference
Comment: Excellent product with great sound adjustment options obtained new from ebay auction at a really good price. 2 complaints - radio has surprisingly worse reception than my Sony Ericsson K800i and annoyingly adds every working frequency for a radio station rather than just the optimum one. The biggest disappointment however is that it doesn't appear to support Ogg files as stated here and on the Samsung website. The manual makes no mention of Ogg and the software won't transfer the files. This may require a firmware upgrade but if so this iis not made clear here or in the Samsung manual.
Good: Outstanding audio quality, battery life and drop dead good looks!
Bad: Proprietory connector, yet to find a battery pack for it
Comment: I purchased this at J&R in NY whilst on holiday to replace an Ipod shuffle as my main mp3 player for the gym and travelling after having read the reviews on Cnet.com and I have not been disappointed. It's a slim stylish player that can play video on a screen that you can actually view without eye strain and the sound is superb. I've used it with Shure E3c and Bose Quiet Comfort 2 headphones and have been rewarded with crystal clear sound. Using it in the gym with the Shure E3c's, I've been able to pound the treadmill to the Who, Led Zep et al without being disturbed by MTV. Yes it's a tad more expensive than a Nano but on this baby you have a choice as to whether you want to use a volume limiter.
Overall buy one, you won't regret it!
