MODTHEBOX would like to thank Eileen from Samsung Canada for sending the Samsung YP-T7 Z Digital Audio Player for review.

Introduction:

Portable storage devices are wonderful pieces of technology designed to match the fast paced lives of consumers on the move. The need to quickly and efficiently transport useful data from one location to another has been realized with the invention of solid state drives. For the music enthusiasts, solid state drives have been a optimal solution for creating portable play lists of favourite music that can be heard anywhere in the world. Samsung Canada is an established manufacturer that has recently released a new series of digital audio players marketed under the Yepp brand name. Today in MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the Samsung Yepp YP-T7 Z Digital Audio Player; a small form factor portable media device designed around flash media technology.
