Aesthetically, this is a really nice product from Samsung. The player is quite sleek, with nice rounded edges, a decent weight, and sharp piano black gloss finish. The sound quality is superb. I didn't get the same battery life the manufacturer did (they rate 30 hours, I probably average 20), but I would bet that's because I use the touchscreen interface more than their battery testers did.

As for the touchscreen, I have to admit it's pretty nice. I prefer tactile use, so I'm more of a fan of buttons than touchscreens, but Samsung has done a nice job executing this one. There are a couple of odd quirks to the touchscreen. For example, when you "swipe" the touchscreen to advance you have to swipe from right to left, which seems counterintuitive since you are advancing the progress bar from left to right. Obviously, the same is true of swiping to back up, where you swipe from left to right, even though you're going back on the progress bar.

Also, in the default menu setting, you make circular gestures on the touchscreen to advance through the menu. Neat? yes. Functional? not really. The biggest problem I had with this is that my thumb kept obscuring the icons as they moved into view. Ultimately, I found this too annoying and I disabled it in favor of a regular grid menu. Not as cool to show your friends, but much more functional.

The audio player functions are top notch. As a caveat to this, I will say that I could not get this to sync with Winamp 5.5. My Winamp crashed every time I loaded it when the P2 was plugged in. Instead, I did my syncing through Windows Media Player, and it worked fine. It synced playlists perfectly, and did a great job recognizing albums when I copied them directly like a mass storage device.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 8 GB Verified Purchase
I wanted a video player that was easy to use with UnBox and other video sites other than iTunes (I have owned a 3G 40G and own a 4G 30G video and 3G Nano 4GB). Here are my initial thoughts:
Fast charging via USB
Easy to use Samsung proprietary software for music, video and RSS feeds
Nice User Interface with Touch Screen, bright colors
File transfer from UnBox a breeze, recognized immediately, very fast file transfer vs. IPOD
Easy interface to add, update and load RSS feeds
Drag and drop computer files for music and video
Syncing is much easier than an IPOD, does not sync all of your files to obtain new files to load
Updated firmware was fast and easy (Bluetooth upgrade)
Great sound quality and form factor
Cost per MB more affordable than an IPOD
Love it so far after 1.5 hours of use; will update once I have it for a week or two.
WORTH considering, like the fact that it does not require quirky Windows Media Player
Purchased for $200, which was a bargain vs. the 4G IPOD Nano
Considered the Creative Vision and Archos; Archos was more than I needed as I just wanted to plug and play and take this on a plane. :)

Update 1/20/2007: The Unbox and Vongo video downloads work great. Vongo at $9.95 per month gives a variety of videos to download (14 day trial). Vongo does load any video that you choose from your subscription (total rental fee per month) vs. Unbox which only lets you download purchases --- no rentals for portable video devices.

I also purchased the JabraBT620s Bluetooth headset and it paired immediately. Wireless music and video. However, the P2 does not support bluetooth with FM radio. Price for the Jabra is around $38-40 from an Amazon seller, 1/2 the price vs. other websites.

Just wanted to post that if you are in the market for a portable player, you should not pass this one up. I have the 4 GB version, and I rate the sound quality 10 out of 10 with some KOSS headphones mp3 encoded at 256. The screen is bright and clear, and while the volume has to go almost to peak to push one set of my headphones it is crystal clear when I get there, and every step before it! I am impressed by the sound quality, and highly recommend it.

I anticipated this device arrival for a long time, and now that I have it I am somewhat disappointed.

This review covers 16gb version, and latest European firmware (5.08).

Pros:
- Hard volume and Hold buttons. Invaluable to me at the gym.
- Bluetooth headphone connection. This was the main reason I got the player - as headphone cords always get caught in things. Bluetooth also works fairly well without audio dropouts, though I have not been able to initiate file transfers using my laptop's Broadcom Bluetooth stack (works ok with Toshiba's). If you have Broadcom BT, beware.
- Subway maps (note - I have European firmware, this feature may not be available in US devices). Definitely a helpful feature as it has maps covering all major cities (i.e. London, NY, Chicago)
- Solid sound and video quality (but neither really wow'ed me).
- Handy and intuitive touch interface, though the touch controls are not always precise.
- Great form factor.
- Excellent Radio reception with RDS (I believe RDS is not available in US firmware, but I am not sure - it is definitely there in EU firmware).
- 9-band Graphic Equalizer

Major Cons:
- No gap-less playback. Any serious MP3 player should have this as a feature, considering how easy it is to implement.
- No mp3 file info (bitrate at least???).
- Very limited accessories. I am not obsessed over this - but a decent selection of sports armbands, docking cradles, etc would be nice (oh and the wi-fi cradle that was mentioned all over the net - like on YouTube - is a fake).
- A non-standard USB port on the device. Yet another redundant cable that I need to ensure I don't loose. Ridiculous and inexcusable. Thankfully it has a standard headphone jack (unlike my Sony Walkman cellphone).
