Excerpt: I have been converting cassettes to MP3's and it has been laborious at best, until I got this ION device. It has made the transition from tape to hard drive smooth. My only wish would be a better software package, but it will do.
Summary: I have had this product for several months now. Works, but has kinks. Not a bad buy. I can covert cassettes to cds, recordings from others devices, and formats to cd as well. Thinking about adding a 20 band equalizer to system to adjust sound. Process may be a little time consuming but fun. Got my monies worth already.
Excerpt: This unit works great. It was easy to set up and use. It has made transferring music from my old cassettes to mp3's on my computer fun. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for something such as this.
Excerpt: The product works great is simple and matches well with MAC (I did not try it with Microsoft). The software installs quickly and after a couple of uses is easy to master. Since many of my old tapes, many over 30 yrs were worn some tracks didn't sound very good. Most of my old tapes recorded in a most acceptable way and I was satisfied. Essentially your tapes will sound as good as they do on your current sound system.
Excerpt: I had some old conversations on cassette tape. These were my father talking about our family history. When he died I found these tapes and needed to get them converted to a digital format. The ION unit did the job. Is it the sturdiest feeling unit? Probably not. But for the money, it did exactly what it was supposed to do. I thought the software, EZ Tape Converter, was easy to install and very easy to use.
Excerpt: I am using this converter to transfer tapes to mp3 on iTunes. The player is basic and easy to set up. The software is very basic. You still need software capable of cleaning up the quality of recording if your tapes are full of noise.
