Summary: The Kaleshnikov of tape recorders. Handles time and abuse well. Would recommend to anyone still needing a cassette recorder of average fidelity, but absolutely not worth, new or used, more than $50.00!

Summary: I searched the web to find something that I could use to record the songs that I receive. I needed something quick and easy to use. I have gone through countless CD/Cassette players that break down within a year. Plus, to find one now that has a built in mic is almost impossible, so I was very happy to find this product. I have only had it for a few weeks, but so far it has been a God-sent.
Summary: My daughter needed this right away for her musical theater lessons (voice). It was a make/model specifically requested by her teacher. When I found it here on Amazon, I ordered it, and the reseller waas very quick to respond to the order (email), and he shipped it out immediately. My daughter received it on time in another city, and confirmed that her lesson went well, and the device worked flawlessly.
Summary: The following was a consequence to reckon with (then came the digital age)... Sony CFS-W455 had the best internal microphone of any boom box, and too bad I once damaged the record side's tape door with a Koosh ball a dozen years ago... Soon got rid of it, but never forgot how great Sony's level of quality was for $80 at the local ACME store back then.
Summary: I wanted something easy to operate, portable and reliable. I still have a lot of cassette tapes I like to listen to. I know the quality is not as good as a CD but I still have them! This sony player is perfect, fits the bill. I recommend it.
Summary: I really like how clearly the voice sounds when you record. However, mine doesn't record as soon as you push record, it takes a few seconds, is there a reason? I've had tape players/tape recorders before and this never happened.
Summary: Sony TCM-929 Pressman Desktop Cassette Recorder with Automatic Shut-Off Great basic tape recorder which is what I was looking for. Easy to use. Buttons push easy. Counter makes it easy to find exact spot on tape. Sound is ok for a small recorder. Have not yet recorded on it, but plan to. I would highly recommend this product to anybody looking for a basic tape player/recorder; nothing fancy, everything I was wanting & it's a Sony product.
Summary: Works fine. No problems. It was a relief to find that we can still buy these players since my mom is in her 80s and knows how to use it and gets confused with the units that combine tape, cd, etc.
