Good deal

Benjamin Barrera, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: I got this for an English class, it has a good recording quality and the play volume is good as weel. The batteries last good enough and the buttons are easy to operate. The only thing that surprise me is the price of the recording cassettes.

Breaks easily

Cora Chuffo "CMC", Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: Not only does this device seem to have a common defect, but the manufacturer does not stock/make the parts needed for repair anymore, so it cannot be fixed.

A good Microcasette Recorder

REGINA W., Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: It's a good little recorder, does what it's suppose to do. Not too many people still use these, kinda out of date as far as electronics and teenagers go.

Works great

Doubletake "Bassman", Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I got this to replace a Sony that I had for several years. This kind of machine (microcassette) is getting harder and harder to find. Even though the price was a bit high it was worth it. Works better than my Sony did.

Olympus Pearlcorder records well and great play back

bubbleflueff, Ebay
5 June 2012
  • Summary: This recorder records well and has a loud speaker. I would have given a 5 star rating if it had auto reverse. But for the price, you can't beat it.

what a piece of doggie doo doo

Rebecca J. Mccray "Becky Jean", Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: ~ okay; it's true, it worked fine when i first took it out of the package, installed batteries and used it for several hours that first day while on vacation. I used it perhaps two more times the summer i purchased it (2010), then stowed it in the canvas bag where i keep all my writing materials. I pulled it out just now, installed FRESH batteries - fairly certain that the old ones were kaput after 2 years in storage - and can't get ANY power.

Cheap quality

S. Whitten "Carolina Girl", Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: The reviews I read were mostly OK, but this recorder feels like a toy. A cheap toy! The packaging looked worn, like it was old. I shouldn't have even opened it, but I did, hoping for the best. It was at this point that I held the item and was surprised to find the quality of the item was cheap and flimsy. I even recorded a little bit, hoping that voice quality would make up for the lack of quality construction. This was not the case. I am returning this item immediately.
