Summary: It works for me. I occasionally need to record and send a cassette to friends and family. This recorder is compact and meets the needs I have from time to time. Not professional quality, but I don't need that.
Summary: Not a high fidelity device, nor is it intended to be. My wife uses it to listen to her preacher's recorded sermons. Nothing will help that man's voice. These little things have increasingly been difficult to find locally (Wal-Mart/Best-Buy/Rat Shack, etc. I was delighted to find one on-line. Experience with them previously has shown they do not have a very long life.
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.
