Summary: I already knew this was a great transcriber having previously owned two others. I was worried buying a used product, so I was trusting that the product description said that it was in good condition with no need of refurbishment. I am very pleased with my purchase!
Great Transcriber - Better Than Transcribers I Used 20 Years Ago
27 November 2012
Summary: This is an excellent transcriber that deserves 5-stars. I gave it 4 because it came with a monaural headset (as described by the vendor). For anyone who has not used a transcriber in several years, you will find the controls easy to adjust without reading the accompanying user manual. The sound is extremely clear; much better than the sound of transcribers I used 20 years ago. The foot control works perfectly with the settings on the transcriber adjusted to my liking.
Summary: The transcriber works well except I cannot get the speed as slow as I would like. I record on a slow speed so my tapes last longer and I'm not fooling around with lots of tapes per day. I transcribe with the slow-recorded tapes and have the speed level all the way to the left, and it plays faster than actually spoken, sometimes making it hard to understand what people said and there's no way to get the speed any slower.
Summary: I purchased this Analog Standard Cassette Transcriber with attachments in Sept.through Amazon and company that was selling the product. Started using it and it worked great. Next time I used it I could not get the foot pedal to work. Called the company that I bought it from through Amazon and they were absolutely wonderful.
