Summary: I was suppose to receive a new Silver Cassette Recorder made my Memorex. What I received was a used black Cassette Recorder which was also made by Memorex. This recorder was very noticeable as being a used product. It has scratches on it, had labels that were on the back of the recorder, which had been partially peeled off. And it had a very distorted sound. I was deeply disappointed that something in this condition, and not being what I had ordered was shipped to me.
Summary: This is a piece of junk. For the money I expected something that worked and didnt fall apart when I opened it! It's a cheap piece of plastic sprayed silver, ate my tape And didn't work in reverse from the get-go. Don't buy this product.

Summary: It was "such a good price" that I figured I'd order two, as backups. When the COBY recorder I was using at the time started messing up (about a year later), I pulled out one of the Memorexes. It wouldn't work. So I continued to make do with the COBY. Six months down the road the COBY finally stopped working. I pulled out the second Memorex.
Summary: This product didn't work right the 1st time it was used. Even the battery cover isn't right. I do personal correspodence with many friends and recorder nearly daily. This is not a well made recorder. It doesn't even feel like it is made well.
Summary: This is the second time I have ordered this particular Cassette Recorder for an older friend of mine who is 80 years old so she could record her church services every Sunday. The first cassette recorder was returned because it had a crack below the record button and kept stopping and would not play a complete tape. Then I ordered another cassette recorder, the same one again and it has the same problem.
Summary: Purchased the recorder, advertised as BRAND NEW IN PACKAGING, received the recorder, in the packaging, but it was broken, (the lid over the battery compartment was missing!!!) scratched, HAD TAPE ON IT, and was dirty (sticky where tape had once been on, but was removed)! Somehow an old recorder was put into the packaging!!! very unhappy.
Summary: I did not open this item until Jan. 2014. It will not turn on. I have tried numerous batteries to no avail. It is too late to return the recorder. I am now stuck with a non-functioning recorder.
