This sleek and sexy new player from Samsung makes you look cooler than before; and without becoming an Apple fanboy!

Ying to the Yang

 

Installing Samsungs EmoDio software was easy enough by downloading the newest version online and running it.

 

However, I find the interface clunky with not enough emphasis on functionality over looks to make it a viable switch from Windows Media Player or iTunes.

This is something that manufacturer's feel they have to tag on to a portable media product and it's really not necessary any more. People are too used to using the more widely distributed media management tools like WMP, iTunes, Winamp and Song Bird to want to re-import and re-sort their media libraries and playlists into another 3rd party software.

 

Thankfully this player integrates seamlessly into Windows Media Player 11 and you can sync your songs, movies, images and playlists with ease.

 

The clever clogs at Samsung have also made sure their player is compatible with BBC iPlayer as well; this so you can download and watch your shows on the go. Very handy if you are a commuter on the train to work or a student wanting to brave out the hangover at the back of class!

Top marks go out to Samsung on this solid player with excellent integration. It's well worth a look at if you would like to take your favourite BBC shows on the go.
