Samsung's YP-K3 is an incredibly slim and stylish MP3 player, with a touch-sensitive interface and a seamless design. Although not bursting with features, the K3 rivals the iPod nano with its ease of use, attractive design and solid performance.
This 4GB MP3 player is available for an affordable £99, however those with smaller music collections can opt for the 2GB version, which is just £79.
The K3 is lightweight, super slim and a devilishly attractive piece of kit to boot. Complimented by a sophisticated silver border, the metallic black finish and seamless design of this player just oozes class.
One thing that separates the K3 from most competitors is its complete lack of buttons. Samsung has opted for a touch-sensitive interface that's invisible until touched, magically lighting up the controls. It looks seriously cool, but there's no tactile feedback given from the buttons, meaning you can't feel that a button has been pressed.
In the karmic world of MP3 players, however, no good seems to come without an equal and opposite bad: the K3 picks up fingermarks like there's no tomorrow. This can easily be remedied with a lint-free cloth though, so we're not panicking.
The 46mm (1.8-inch) 160x120-pixel colour OLED screen is nowhere near as sharp as Samsung's more recent YP-T9 model, but performs its job adequately.
