Default Durability

I would like to thank Samsung for finally making an incredibly durable device. the other day, I was telling my friends how awesome my P3 was, and they didn't believe me when I said how durable it was. so I threw it into a wall. pretty hard too. hard enough for it to bounce across the floor back to me.

today, my friends Dad actually was interested, and so I dropped it onto the floor.

of course, it still works no problem.

so thank you Samsung, for finally making a device that can survive me.

Agh now i am confused again if to get a P3 or M1
I hear only people complain of m1 is slow and crashes etc...
but now P3 is soo well made is it realy worth getting P3 instead of M1?
M1 is way too priced (hey even S9 from cowon is cheaper)

Depending on where you are, you won't be able to get the M1. I think it is only available in Korea and a few other places.

Wink That won't happen to me

i hate it when dust gets under my screen. When i get my P3 i am gonna use this kinda accessory thing i made to stop dust getting under the screen. Dust usually gets in from the 3.5mm jack so i took some old headphones cut of the long wire and just left the bit that plugs into the player. Then when my headphones aren't in i just put in the dust blocker thingimabob. It also lets me listen to the radio if i plug it into my phone and activate the speaker. If someone wants to make it just use old headphones or the sucky ones that came with the p3

Im curious, there really is no way of getting rid of dust under the screen is there? I really try to keep my ear phones plugged in as much as possible. But my P3 is so dusty anyway even though I try to keep it clean with a microfiber cloth.
