De mannen van Envy News hebben een review gebakken over de Samsung Yepp YP-30SH 128MB MP3-speler. Deze speler is uitgerust met 128MB Flash-geheugen dat gevuld kan worden via een USB 1.1 poort. De afmetingen van het apparaatje zijn bescheiden, de YP-30SH meet slechts 44x65x12,5mm en het gewicht is 34 gram. De reviewer is positief over de speler, maar er zijn wel enkele minpunten. Zo kan de Yepp YP-30SH slechts vijf uur werken op één AAA batterij en laat de degelijkheid van het compartiment te wensen over. Tevens is de reviewer van mening dat de speler, met een prijskaartje tussen de 139 en 199 dollar, aan de dure kant is:
As for faults, we've already talked about a few including the weakly designed battery hatch, the scratch-prone textured aluminum shell, and the oddly coded Yepp Explorer audio management software. In addition to these, I'm a bit concerned about the 5-hour battery life that a 'AAA' Alkaline can provide you with. Anything under 10-hrs of battery life is a big no-no in my books, especially when we're dealing with a high-efficiency product like a solid-state MP3 player with low-power Indiglo backlighting and energy-conserving Sleep functions. However, with some of the newer high-performance NiMH rechargeable 'AAA' battery systems and aggressive use of sleep and backlighting configuration, it should be fairly simple to extend battery life to 7 to 7.5 hrs. We find the price of the 30SH to be a bit too steep, especially since an Apple 5GB iPod is just within financial reach at $299 US. However, that said, it seems the street price of the YP-30SH hovers between $139 and $199 US.
Once again, Samsung has waved their wands and concocted a feature-rich and attractive little product. The Yepp YP-30SH isn't short of functionality, and despite its little annoyances, they can be easily overlooked since its strengths are quite evident. The YP-30SH is an ideal product for both students and professionals alike. Samsung just released a few new players including the small but impressive YP-90S and the expandable YP-700 player. Yep, we’ll be keeping a close eye on Yepps.
