Summary: I bought this recorder a few months ago. It is terrible in many ways. It's heavy, it drags, the recording drags so I can't understand almost everything recorded. Luckily, I was able to send it back and get reimbursement on my Amazon gift certificates.
Memorex cassette tape player/recorder -- don't buy it
Gail Garabedian, Amazon

Summary: I have rarely been so disappointed in a product purchased through Amazon. It is a cheap plastic unit (does not look like the photo) that is way overpriced at around $25. Worse, it does not have the ability to vary the speed of the tape you're listening to, and it plays the tape back a little too fast. I use a cassette player to listen to Pimsleur Spanish language tapes, and it's sort of like listening to the Chipmunks.
Summary: We purchased this item for an elderly relative whom has a collection of old cassette tapes,and refuses to adapt to modern technology.The unit is a basic cheaply built item. Function buttons are hard for her to push,but it is still working as far as I know.Price was the main reason for purchase.
Summary: Do not waste your money. I bought this to playback some old music cassettes when an old tape deck "gave up the ghost." The tapes are unlistenable when played back on this "product." The playback speed is erratic with way too much treble. Violins sound like a high-pitched fluttering whine. I've had walkman style cassette players like this before and have had no problem with these tapes. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY like I did.
Summary: I thought that I would have to wait for a while for this item seeing that it was coming from a third party but again I was " Amazoned" My tape player arrived ahead of the expected date and in good condition works well and I hope to improve my chinese vocabulary much listening to tapes.
Only the Pause Button worked when we received this cassette recorder

Summary: The product looked good, looked sturdy, but none of the buttons would stay down to stop, play rewind fast forward. Only the pause button worked, so we returned the product for a refund - which was a very fast process and we thank you for that.
Summary: This was really a big disapointment. It didn't play right and I tried 2 different tapes to make sure it wasn't the tape. It was shakey and very hard to understand. I would highly recomend NOT to buy this recorder.
