You can charge it via USB but some shops sell the mains charger which can be very expensive because last time (a month ago) i tried to buy the mains charger because i was going on holiday and i did'nt want to carry my laptop with me, it was costing £100 which is more than the Mp3 player its self, but you can get it cheaper from amazon as it's only bout £20 and i noticed that its compatible with the ipod USB charger which only costs £25 from many retail shops e.g comet, pc world, currys etc.
While charging the Mp3 player via USB you can still listen to your music by clicking my computer folder and then click were it says removable disk F or E and then folder will open with all your music or any other documents you've saved in it, which is great thing for the reason that you might be doing some work on the computer and you need to listen to some music (you won't have the hustle of playing a CD or radio). While listening to your music on the computer you can still make it personal by putting the MP3 headphones into the computer's headphone socket.
With this mp3 player you can also store other documents which are not mp3 files e.g word, excel, publisher documents, pictures, videos etc (though you can't really view the document or pictures on the mp3 player but only on the computer). This mp3 player doesn't scratch easily aswell meaning it looks new for a very long time which is good for the feature when you want to re-sell it to some one or possibly give it away.
I had always wanted to buy this mp3 player since last year (2006) but the price was just far too high it was around £100 at that time but about three months ago i was browsing amazon and i just saw the mp3 player being sold at £40,00 by amazon its self and i just bought it, the delivery was free aswell which was wicked and i received it within four days (can you handle that :) ).
Before i actually bought it happened that on christmas day some one gave me the mp3 player as a christmas present but it was the 512MB one i was happy but the memory was not good enough for some one like me because im really into music and i even study music. Anyways when i went shopping one day in my county mall i lost it (proberbly dropped it without noticing). The person who gave me it doesn't even know that i lost it, they see me with my 2GB one and they think its the same one because of the colour but i haven't told them its a 2gb version (even my sister lost hers one aswell and the person who bought it for her doesn't know, so i'm not the only one who is guilty).
The mp3 player has many features that keeps you going, you can also create music folders which you can browse not only on the computer but also on the mp3 player itself.
This 2gb Mp3 can also record and the sound is really good, when you record you can easily put it on the computer and transfer it to a CD or another Mp3 player. You can also edit what you have just recorded if you buy the WAV editing software which makes the sound even more better.
This Mp3 player also has a 3D four line display which writes in white making it easy to read. Itis also WMA compatible meaning you can store more songs using less memory (if you use WMA file).
If you don't have windows XP or 2000 or any windows above those mentioned don't worry because it comes with an installation CD which also has the manual which you can save on your computer if you want.
Its best that you register the Mp3 player with samsung just after you receive it for the reason that the serial number rubs offs really quickly and when they ask you to register it they would want to know the serial number just for security reasons. Registering is also another good oppoturnity of winning Samsung products because whenever you register for the warranty you will be automatically entered into the prize draw which is wicked!!
The mp3 player has strong headphones which don't break easily possibly like other headphones and they don't hurt your ears at all and via the headphone you can chose to add bass by putting the headphones all the way if the bass is too much for a certain track and you can't be bothered to go to the setting to take it off you can just lift up the headphones a little bit to the second level and bass will decrease.
When you listen to your music you have the choice to change the tempo either making the music slow or fast which is a funny and cool feature on this Mp3 player. You can also delete the music that you don't want via the mp3 player which is really good if you don't have time to sit on the computer.
You can also multi-task on the Mp3 player, you can still listen to some music while browsing the menu or the music which is a cool feature because you can't do that on a lot of MP3 players.
When you use the Mp3 player a lot the buttons become a little bit stiff possibly because of the pressure that it gets when you try to change to the next song or add volume to it.
The MP3 player doesnt come with a neck strap but it does have a place where you can put one.
I'd deffinately recommend this to people, it's a wicked Mp3 player ;). Another thing is that all the versions of this Mp3 player has the same functions the only difference is the memory capacity and the colour (512MB, 1GB which is white and the 2GB). I don't really know if there is a 4gb version but if there is or was i deffinately should own it because my 2gb one is already full with music and my other documents and its really annoying because everytime i try to save something in the Mp3 player i have to delete some music or a document to create some space which is tough.
There is also another version of this 2Gb mp3 player, the difference is that it doesnt have the FM radio, so you better be careful which one you are buying specially if you are after the FM radio.
Summary: a small and smart MP3 player with big memory for your documents and music!
