Summary: I wanted a stereo with a tape player for the kitchen. I like listening to the radio when I'm cooking or washing up and I have a bunch of old tapes that I can't replace with CDs or MP3s. The radio tuner is fairly vague unlike newer digital tuners and I made marks on the stereo where my favourite stations got best reception. The Volume button is also very sensitive and turning the volume up or down in small amounts can be tricky.
Summary: Bought this as a Christmas present, was completely disappointed.This is a cheap product. There were screws falling out of it when it was being taken out of the package. Would probably serve it's purpose as a radio but not as cassette player. Going to see about returning it.
Summary: I bought this so that my 3 year old granddaughter can listen to cassettes. Apparently the new generation only uses CD's. However, I bought a book with a cassette for Christmas so cassettes are still around.
Summary: I purchased this cassette player in February, the warranty ran out in March and it began eating my cassettes in the beginning of Sept. I just wanted something to play old cassettes for school purposes. It ate my $10.00 history cassette. I tried a couple of more cassettes to see if it could be the cassettes themselves but it was the player. I probably wouldn't complain as much if it had at least lasted the whole school year. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Summary: Nice radio and tape player, recorder. Wish it had a mic extension line but it's range for pick up of voice works good without it. Handy radio runs from my solar generated power source during electric company blackouts. Use it to record voice for a video. Wanted to buy (and purchased extra tapes) before this old effective way of recording, erasing, re-recording... is no longer sold.
Summary: I've bought this radio two times and both radios have eaten tapes. The only reason I buy it is to record from the radio and play back later. Waste of time and money. Regret I gave Coby a second chance.
Summary: It is difficult today to find a cassette player, let alone a quality one at an affordable price. But this product meets all of that criteria and more. I have more than 700 cassettes I listen to regularly.......without this product, that would be impossible, as my car does not have a cassette player. The sound is great, tone superb, and it is very reliable. Congrats to the maker!
