  • Excerpt: B&H is a first class service oriented store,I will have no hesitation what-so-ever to trade with them again.It is not their fault I didn't like the Ion recorder because I found after many combinations of control settings and tape qualities the recordings were often fuzzy.The customer service rep.

Below Standard Quality

  • Excerpt: From the very first tape, it dragged and wobbled. I tried several other tapes, but to no avail. It's very cheaply made. The tape drive mechanism is very unstable. Even the buttons are flimsy when engaged. This is a dual tape machine and the main problem was with the Tape 1 side. But it totally defeats the purpose of why I purchased it. I have since returned it, because in my view it's an inferior product.
  • Cons: Flimsy

Cheap tape deck that did not work well

Steve, B&H Photo
6 August 2012
  • Excerpt: My first impression was that it was of mediocre quality - very lightweight, and when you press the play button, the entire panel of buttons (including rewind, ff, etc.) bends downward. I wasn't particularly impressed with the sound, but I chalked that up to the tapes I was using. After a couple of days, it started to have trouble playing tapes that ran fine on a different player (a boom box). The speed would fluctuate, slowing down and speeding up.
  • Cons: Flimsy

Doesn't deliver what it promises

  • Excerpt: I have an extensive cassette collection that I was hoping to convert to digital for my new ipod. The Ion Tape 2 PC sounded like the answer to my needs, and a way to save quite a bit of money by transferring my original tapes.However, it didn't deliver what it promised. The conversion process was tedious = each track must be played individually - no high speed dubbing. I'd had been willing to spend the time if the sound quality after conversion was acceptable.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Flimsy, Poor Sound

Ion Tape2PC USB Cassette Deck

KindleUp, Rate it all!
16 August 2009
  • Summary: After seeing mixed reviews, I purchased the Ion Tape 2pc hoping it would produce like the five star ratings I read, not the many one star ratings. Unfortunately, it is a very cheap tape deck. I tried eight different tapes, and they were all playing too fast. I adjusted the gain correctly, set my pc for stereo input and did everything in the instructions. I then tried all tapes on two different cassette decks I have at home, and they worked great.

A Piece of Junk

  • Summary: I can't list everything that was wrong with this piece of junk. I finally returned it for a refund. Company did not pay shipping costs, every though they promised they would. Do not waste your money.
