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.
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.
