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.

Cheap tape deck that did not work well

  • 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

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.

Sadly, I cannot recommend this product..

  • Summary: Use the product once to show yourself not to buy another like it. There is nothing great about it except for the concept of USB interfacing. The software is poorly conceived and written - it does not take several things into account and insists on taking a single minded track towards assuming the tape you are converting is of commercial origin.
  • Pros: Fairly cheap
  • Cons: Bad software, Flimsy, Poor Sound

User hostile

Disappointed in Amherst, J&R

  • Summary: I've wasted about a dozen hours trying to use this machine. My job requires me to use computers all the time, and this supposedly easy gadget has been deeply disappointing. The software CD does not support Windows Vista. I went to the website and downloaded the Vista-compatible software, but there were two versions with no clear instructions about how to choose. Neither worked for me, and my e-mail to product support was never answered.
  • Pros: Clear Sound
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Limited Functions
