  • 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.
