Default Comparison Samsung P3 vs M1 vs Cowon S9



As I promised you, here is a comparison between 5 touch screen players: Samsung M1 vs P3 vs R1 vs Cowon S9 vs Creative Zen X-Fi 2:
http://mp3.generationmp3.com/2010/01...eative-x-fi-2/
google translation

Here is the pictures gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/generat...08928548/show/

The Creative cannot compete and the R1 cannot be put in the same group because of its smaller screen so I decided to focus only on the big ones: Samsung P3 vs M1 vs Cowon S9.



It's in french but maybe you can understand some things with the google translation and otherwise you can ask me questions except one for the moment: Which one does sound the best?
Actually if I know DNSe effects by heart, it's not the case regarding the BBE+ so I need more time to compare the sound quality.
But do remember this comparison is just a little preview. A full comparison will be published later

Very nice read, is there any way of doing a video comparison of the 3 players, when it comes to screen quality, video quality, and smoothness of UI's.?

Sound quality is excellent on the 3 players (not a surprise BTW)

I do not own a Sony walkman but a friend of me has a A81x that sounds pretty good. But I prefer Samsung and Cowon for their audio effects (DNSe and BBE)

You can ask me questions about the sound in general, but for the moment I just can't tell you which one is the best regarding sound quality

Thanks in advance,.....

I realize the P3 is an easy one to throw in there since you're very experienced with it, but any chance of an M1, S9, Zune HD, iriver SPINN showdown? All of them at least have a 3.3" OLED screens showing 480 x 272. From what I've seen the P3/P2 remain at the top of the 3" screen heap. Many other devices with 3" screens don't do 480 x 272. There are even several 3" screen devices out there that aren't touchscreens.

I don't think so. There is no specific setting for that and if it does it by default, how may I know?

Well, I'd like to but it would be very difficult to do it: M1 Ok I have one now, S9 Ok my brother just bought it for Christmas, Zune HD very difficult to get in France, iRiver Spinn: worse than the others, no reason to own it. The P3 with a smaller screen is much better.
The only way to get those mp3 players is to buy them (we, generationmp3, are not in touch with microsoft and iriver). Yet, I'm still a student, I have no pay. I have 14 mp3 players in my bedroom but I only bought 2 of them. I do not need more, 14 is already too much

so, what I got from the google translation, is that the M1 is basically the P3, just more refined sounds really nice, actually

The problem with Sony europe is that it they go to far limiting the sound loudness i have a A828 and any samsung player is louder reason why i did not buy Sony X1050 and instead Samsung M1

on the Picture the M1 look so much better than P3

quite good with firmware 1.19 but still far from perfect
still random lags and need more firmware updates
M1 is a better P3 just more buggy fix that buggy thing and M1 be the best

Woa, I have a Super P3 (M1)
It surprise me M1 is faster than P3
anyway yea for the exception of bugs and some other problems (caused of short memory (using widgets etc..)
The M1 is probaly better than P3 but i think Cowon S9 is the best
I will be getting a S9 myself this year when i sell out some stuff
i maybe even sell the sony a828 since i am not happy with the loudness of sound
I hear the Cowon S9 is not so loud either but this is fixed by installing the american firmware
that make it louder than the european

One of the reason i buy samsung mp3 players is because i like how loud they sound

The google translation for the french article was good for me
thanks for a good article

I just realized that the Samsung P3 has the same screen resolution as my Sony PSP...........

and it's 1.3 inches smaller, that's quite nice

Samsung P2 and P3 have the best resolution of the market as far as I know (43530 pixels/inch) just after the iPod Touch (43885 pixels/inch)
