Very sad for my dad

whoop, Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: This only worked occasionally which was very frustrating. I bought it for my 89 year old dad who was trying to record his life story for us. He would spend hours recording and then when we played it back, it would either play too slow or too fast so it was incomprehensible. Very sad for my dad.

Amazon, quit selling this!

  • Summary: I bought this player almost a year ago, but just opened it last week. I use a cassette player to listen to books on tape from the library, and my old player was wearing out. The very first tape I put in the new machine ended up ruined.

No batteries or tapes included as advertised, terrible sound quality.

  • Summary: The product description said that tapes and batteries were included. I received neither with my package. Also, the recording is very poor quality. I ordered this because I have used this brand before and liked it, but this one sucks. It's cheaply made (in China) as well.

  • Summary: The recorder has a lot of background humming in the playback mode. I would NOT recommend this. The voice activation is slow on the start and cuts off the first part of every word when you restart after a pause. VERY DISAPPOINTED :-(

Awful product

J. R. Brookens "bobntheboys", Amazon
3 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought 3, and glad I did. The first never worked. Return cost not worth mailing back a piece of junk. The second and third are used in 2 locations; they eat batteries, sometimes I'll stop to hear what I've dictated and only get static on one of them, until I shake it a few times.

Sadly this recorder would have been perfect if it worked

  • Summary: Sadly this recorder would have been perfect if it worked. I was so excited to get it I put a tape in right away and hit record. The motor was so loud that the tape picked up the noise.

Almost acceptable, but not quite.

S. Seibert "sphd", Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: This dictaphone is replacing one that broke. Unfortunately “they” can’t make a digital voice recorder with a pause button, which is essential for me. In fact the pause button is the only good reason I can think of for getting a mini-cassette tape recorder instead of a digital voice recorder, well...

  • Summary: I had been looking for a good tape player and purchased another cheap model last year. It didn't work and I let them know and instead of refunding - they sent me another piece of cheap junk.
