Summary: I bought this piece of junk a year ago. I ended up giving it to a friend,who ended up throwing it in the garbage. 1. The cassette player always played the tape faster than what it should have. Always sounded like I was like I was listening to the chipmunks. 2.
Summary: Well, I got this from my husband for Christmas...after requesting it for several years. I was so excited I actually got all teary eyed. The reason I wanted this was to record some old cassettes that were from my father, who passed away several years ago.
Summary: The first machine that arrived was visibly used and I purchased a new one. The main reason I purchased the machine was to record to CD from my collection of vinyl records. The first attempt to record - it failed! I tried again and the same thing.
Summary: I don't recommend this product to anyone. It is easy to use, however, the sound is horrible. It is noisy and has a loud humming sound to the finished CD. Also, the background is horrible. The first one I bought I returned because I couldn't even hear the songs on the CD.
Summary: This item seemed ideal for my needs since I just wanted to be able to record my cassettes (and eventually some vinyl) onto CDs. I also wanted something simple without having to purchase various equipment and hook it up to a computer.
Summary: This player was a Christmas gift that was opened Christmas morning. The player had a bunch of screws or something rolling around inside the sealed player when we took it out of the box. There was a larger component rolling around inside the player also. Must have been where the screws came from.
Most outstanding feature is user frustion - avoid this item

Summary: Disappointing piece for frustration. Bought one of these last July, 2009 from Target online. First of all, if you're dubbing an LP or Cassette to CD, once you start the dub you can no longer adjust or change the volume till the dub is complete.
Summary: I ordered the Crosley Songwriter CD Recorder for my mom for Mother's Day. She has about a million records that we wanted to put on CDs. And I've got to say that over the last week, I've recorded about 25 CDs (and also a few cassette tapes), and absolutely love this unit!
Summary: this crosley songwriter looked very nice but didn't perform well at all. i had to keep pushing the buttons to get it to run and when I tried to record an album onto a cd at first it didn't want to start it kept telling me there was no cd then when it did say it was recording it only recorded 2 songs...
Summary: I purchased the Crosley CR248 Songwriter CD Recorder to transfer a large number of tapes and records to CDs. It works just as described. I am very happy with its performance. While my experience with it is still limited, I would certainly recommend it to anyone having needs similar to mine.
