Summary: After 30+ years, our stereo components bit the dust, so my husband and I decided to rebuild our stereo system from the ground up. For the turntable, I wanted quality, versatility, and ease of use. The Denon delivered on all three. Our beloved LPs sound rich and full, just like we remember them. The USB port makes a lot of sense being part of the turntable, and it's easy; I barely glanced at the manual before successfully transferring a track to my PC on the first try.
Summary: Very easy to use and sound quality was excellent. Transferred file to my iTunes with no problem. I haven't loaded the software and tried splitting the songs yet, but I imagine that will simply be tedious rather than difficult.
Summary: This turntable allows me to record my records directly to a USB memory stick then transfer the recorded song to any computer. There is no need to connect the turntable directly to a computer, which works for us because the room where I play records does not have a computer. There is no cue lever with this turntable so while starting play at the beginning of a side is fully automatic, if you want to start at the third track you must place the needle by hand.
Summary: This is the USB turntable for someone like me, who isn't interested in researching and sorting sound cards, software and cabling, and who loves music but isn't a compulsive audiophile. Here's how it works: unpack and set up the turntable, connect it to a sound system, stick a flash drive in the port, put on a record (LP or 45), push a couple of buttons, and you're in business. Records in real time, files are stored at a rate of 192kbps.
Summary: I purchased this turntable after quite a long research. When I unpacked it I was at first a little put off by the somehow cheap design and making. But recording is just so easy :-)) And the included software allows to easily split up into single songs and name them via grace-DB. As I always took much care in handling (and buying) my records I can enjoy them as they are without having to use noise reduction.
Summary: I purchased the Denon DP-200USB to transfer vinyl LP's to CD. It was to replace a TEAC P-A688 amplified turntable that I have had for some time and is due a needle replacement. I considered the Denon amplified turntable to be an upgrade. This did not work out as well as I had hoped. The method of transfer is through the line-in of my Creative Audigy sound card. I have used both Nero Wave Editor 2 and Audacity software.
Summary: Initially I should mention I'm partial to Denon. I've owned their products for years, because they last for years. Recently I'd experienced trouble with my 20 year old turntable, and had been seeking a USB turntabe from a reputable brand. Viola! I located this Denon DP-200USB from a small stereo shop several months ago, right after it made its US debut.

Summary: I did quite a bit searching and waiting to find a decent turntable that I could both connect to my stereo system for LP playing, as well connect to my computer for digitizing of those same LP's. Having owned and used a traditional Denon turntable for 20yrs, I thought I'd stick with a brand that I knew and could trust. My first impressions of this turnable have been mostly favorable...
Summary: This attractive and functioning unit ordered proved to be incompatible with my MAC. With disappointment I returned the unit to Future Shop. It was also disappointing in that I specifically requested of the sales person that I was looking for a turntable suitable for vinyl conversion to my MAC and iTunes.
Summary: I purchased this specifically for transferring vinyl recordings to my computer. I initially panicked when the instructions stated compatibility was Windows XP, 2000 or Vista, but I charged ahead and installed it on my Windows 7. It works well, just a little complicated in the transferring of your music, but overall quite satisfied. Suggestion to manufacturer: A good feature would be to have power button illuminated when unit is on!
