Best I've found for the cost, better than some that cost more.

Summary: I've used 5 of this model over several years. It gets many hours of daily tape playing use and therefore I anticipate that parts will wear out. The first thing that usually wears out is the playback sound feature, however compared to other brands I've owned this is the best value for the money
Summary: This is a great little cassette recorder. I'm a song writer, and often, when the muse visits, I need to get the sound, or lyrical ideas down right away, or risk loosing them forever. My muse is rather fickle that way. I would have given it 5 stars except there is no auto stop in FF / Rewind modes. It only auto stops on Play. I've been using recorders like this since the '70's, and this one is is great, except for the above.
