Samsung YP-Z5 (4GB)8. Samsung YP-Z5 (4GB)
Price range: $214-279
The good: Outputs clean and punchy sound; relatively large, bright color screen; well-designed menus; solid aluminum chassis; exceptional battery life; ability to simultaneously view photos and listen to music.
The bad: Touch pad can be difficult to deal with; lacks FM tuner and on-the-go playlists.
The bottom line: If you're looking for a tiny, well-built color-screen MP3 player with excellent sound, the Samsung YP-Z5 is a great choice. Just make sure you're comfortable with the touch-pad controller before you buy.
