MODTHEBOX would like to thank Eileen from Samsung Canada for sending the Yepp YP-780V MP3 Player for review.

Samsung Canada

Introduction:

Portable storage devices have transcended through many technological changes over the past few years. The popularity of the technology has created new market segments that have crossed over into different mediums in order to provide mass appeal. Apple Computers is recognized as one of the first global companies to mass market a portable storage media solution with its popular IPOD brand name. The success of the IPOD has created competition where rival manufacturers are releasing new solid state storage devices that cater to both consumers and music buffs. Samsung Canada has recently released a new series of portable MP3 based players marketed under the Yepp brand name. Today in MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the Samsung Yepp YP-780V MP3 player; a small form factor portable media device designed around Flash Media technology.

The Yepp YP-780V is the second highest of the four recent MP3 players being offered from the Samsung Yepp lineup and is capable of MP3 playback, FM tuner and voice recording.
