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: 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.
Summary: For $10 ..what a deal. I write songs and play guitar and it's handy to record the music (at the moment). Sound quality as expected is mediochre. I did record a financial message from my speaker phone (Panasonic) handset. Very good. This alone justifies this recorder. I will have to record from this to a digital hand recorder to check out the quality. Digital is not everything...but almost.
Summary: I bought this tape player with a very specific purpose in mind. I am a criminal defense attorney and the majority of the recordings provided to us by the court or the prosecution come on tapes. I needed something to play the tapes in my office and occasionally in court. It had to be compact enough to fit in my briefcase, loud enough and clear enough to play in court, and had to have a counter so I could key sections of a transcript to a tape and easily locate the bits I...
