Touch-sensitive LED controls disappear when not in use.

4 GB Internal Flash Memory
Four gigabytes of internal flash memory provides enough storage space for approximately 50 hours of music (MP3 files a 128kbps).

Touch-Sensitive LED Controls
Navigate your files using the touch controls on the S3, which light up only when in use. After a certain period of idleness, the lights dim and the controls seemingly disappear. (Don't worry, they're still there.)

Multimedia Performer
The Samsung S3 supports MP3, WMA, and Ogg audio formats. Browse your music by Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres, or Playlists. The S3 displays album art and artist info for the current track.

You also can enjoy up to four hours of video on a single charge, in MPEG4 or SVI format. Convert your favorite vids with Samsung Media Studio, and take them with you. The S3 also will display text files, along with your favorite JPEG photos, so you can take a few snapshots with you to show to friends.

DNSe sound engine
Samsung's "DNSe" is a revolutionary technology, providing rich, more realistic sound effects and a true-to-life surround sound experience. DNSe lets you dial in your ideal sonic experience with 10 preset EQ settings plus one custom 7-band EQ, along with 3D and Bass settings.

FM Tuner/Recorder with Presets
Enjoy quick access to the FM spectrum--the built-in FM tuner scans the entire FM range in less than 60 seconds and automatically places the available FM stations into presets. To eliminate stations with marginal reception, you can adjust the sensitivity to preset stations only with strong receptions. Want to save something for later? Use the FM Recorder and it's yours.

What's in the Box
Samsung S3 4 GB Slim Portable Media Player (Black), SMS installation CD, EP-380 earphones, USB cable.

I have had no success getting firmware updates through Emodio.
Considering the above issues, I wouldn't buy another Samsung MP3 player and wouldn't recommend one to others.

Samsung's YP-S3 player is a great little MP3 player with high quality sound. When you purchase any stereo player of any type, there are at least 2 attributes you are concerned with: S/N or signal to noise ratio and frequency response. Samsung's S3 excels in both areas.

Samsung's S3 has a PDF manual available for download on their site and also on the included 8cm mini-CD. The manual claims a S/N ratio of 90 dB and a freq. response of 40Hz-20KHz which are excellent. With S/N, the higher the better and 90 dB is very good. Most stereo equipment never exceed 92 dB. A full freq. response would be 20Hz-20KHz which is the full range of the human ear. While many CD, DVD, and digital players are capable of playing all the way down to 20Hz, almost no home speakers are capable of outputting such a low response.

After listening to the S3 for several days, I can say Samsung delivers on their high specs. There is absolutely no machine noise or humming during music quiet spots. Also, I can hear the full range of the music, excellent. I use the "DNSe" settings which are quite good. DNSe allows you to set 3D and extra Bass effects. There is also a range of equalizer settings you may use. I use the 9 band user equalizer which is great. The specs say 7 band but it's really 9 which is better.

While the S3 delivers excellent performance, I cannot say the same for the included software: their Samsung Media Studio (SMS). SMS offers the bare minimum in features. For some reason, every time I start my Windows XP Pro SP2, SMS puts its icon on my TaskBar. I am NOT going to use SMS every single day (or even every week) so why does it load an icon on my TaskBar?! There is no option in SMS to prevent it from doing this.

i got this as a gift and i will have to disappoint the person that gave it to me because i would rather trade this in for something else. it has too many problems that i'll just list in no particular order.

1. the design is TOO sleek. it's small and slippery and has fallen too many times already and i would rather not risk breaking it permanently. it can snap into the case it's packaged in but it can't fasten to my shirt pocket?

2. the buttons are annoying because you can easily press the wrong things and i liked my old player because i didn't have to pull the thing out of my pocket to change the volume or the track i'm listening to. sometimes you just don't want people know you're carrying around an expensive mp3 player.

3. the program that comes with it is a piece of junk. it doesn't recognise the player half the time and the other half the time it starts working on something and then just stops halfway through. it doesn't freeze, it doesn't generate an error, it just STOPS like it's done. i can't even load a complete album without this happening and it is very time consuming and very annoying. the updated program (emodio) is an even bigger disappointment. i thought it was going to be neat to download rss feeds, convert video, and store pictures but the novelty wore off when it was too much of a hassle to get those things working. then i thought "phones and the internet already do this, why put it on an mp3 player?"

I got this after my Samsung YP-K3 went kaput after an incident while working out on the treadmill (don't ask). I've heard a lot of good stuff about this device so I decided to purchase it. First, let me just say that I'm a simple gal with a limited budget. This means that I don't have the moolah to spend 300 bucks on an iPod (I don't care how AMAZING they are), nor do I feel the need to spend money on a device that has everything under the sun. I just want something that plays music. If it has some cool features like games and cool graphics under a reasonable price, then that's fine, too. Which is basically the S3. I got the 4GB one in green. It plays music, has some videos, can read text files, and have some games. I basically use it so far for the music only. Another plus for me is the fact that there's built in space for playlists. There are 5 playlists that hold up to 100 songs, which I think is cool. I have some issues with this however. In the beginning, after I charge it, the playlists would disappear, and then reappear after I add a song to it. That doesn't happen anymore though. It also doesn't recognize playlists I made in Napster. It would go directly to the File Browser but would then split apart the playlists and file the songs under the Artist's name. However, it automatically recognizes the ones downloaded from WMP. Odd.Haven't used the other features in length so I can't really comment on those. I will say that I'm glad I purchased this device, though I'm thinking of getting the 8gb one so I could download more music. All in all, this is a good device for those who don't want to spend alot of money on something whose sole purpose is to give you the pleasure of listening to music.
