Summary: I'm giving this the lowest possible rating because of the terrible USB quality. It works fine using the RCA outputs, but you might as well buy the cheaper Audio Technica AT-PL50 Belt Drive Turntable if you only need RCA.
Summary: Although the Cons are quite serious with this item, basicly it is useless as a turn table, and the only real use it has is to blindly transfer records (LP, 33, 45s) onto the computer, it is just that job, and how well this item does it, that makes it worth getting.
Pros: Records LP's and 45's from record form to digitized computer files that can be saved as Wav, Wma, Mp3 and other common types. Works well for transfer of record collection or as a hobby.

Summary: This turntable has been great! It makes it easy to convert records to digital formats. The software is easy to setup and use, although I did have to go to the web to download some updates--the version that ships for the mac is designed for PowerPC processors and I have an Intel mac.
Summary: This is an excellent turntable to connect to your PC to rip the old LPs to a digital format. The turntable works flawlessly. I originally planned to connect it to a USB port, but it has so many connection options, that I was able to connect it directly to my sound card's line-in.
Summary: I selected this unit over the others because of the mostly favorable reviews and the price value. You do get what you pay for; many of the parts are plastic. This should be fine as long as you handle the unit accordingly or something is apt to break.
I've been quite happy with it.
Summary: This is a great turntable for turning vinyl albums into digital music for play as wav, mp3 and ITunes quality. I have a couple hundred albums that I have not listened to for years - and am now getting the chance (great to listen to them on the turntable as I record).
