So the UPS/FedEx man is coming with your new purchase, what can you expect in the package other than the invoice.
Along with the usual user's manual, you will receive the PC software along with a quick start guide and the warranty paperwork.
The included consists of a USB/Power cable and power adapter, audio patch cord, headphones (w/ earbud pads), and a belt clip case. Everything you will need to take advantage of all the YH-820 features is included.
And finally you have your new MP3 player measuring in at
1.96"(W) x 3.48"(H) x .54"(D) . For a MP3 player with this much capacity, you can't ask for much smaller. It is even smaller that the Apple iPod Mini and the iPod doesn't have a full color display.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH
The front control button panel is simple and very easy to use. The play/pause button acts as the main power switch you will use to power the unit on and off and you have the track forward and back buttons on either side. Below is the menu control pad which also acts as the volume control when the menu is not displayed. Everything is very simple to use and configure and I will go more into that later on in the review.
To keep things simple, Samsung incorporated both the power and data connections into one easy connection. Just plug the cable into the power adapter and into the USB connection on your computer, and insert the connection into the bottom of the player. Just make sure you have the driver's and software installed first for an easier install.
