Summary: I've given it 3 stars because it slows down some times. Not sure if this is because my cassettes are old. When I remove the cassette and bang it sharply on a table the Walkman seems to gain speed. I'm still testing my theory that it is the cassette, not the Walkman.
Summary: I have been enjoying this cassette player for a long time and still works. It also has FM/AM radio that you have to turn a dial to find the stations. I still have books and talks on cassette tapes that I don't want to get rid of.
Summary: Great Walkman. AM/FM radio, Megabass boost. It is lightweight and not cumbersome. I would recommend paying the price for a NEW or LIKE NEW item, as the one I got seems to have some trouble moving the tape forward, and the music tends to draaaaaaaagggggggggggg.
Summary: The elderly English gentleman I purchased this for says he is very pleased with the sound quality. This is one of the highlights of his American tour. Received 3 days after purchase. Goldenhome
Summary: This suits my needs for walking outside perfectly. It has fast forward and rewind, is easy to operate, and the buttons are very accessible. The sound is very good--adequate bass, but not overpowering.
