To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So i'm in the early days of owning this product and so far it's been great. I set out to prove something to myself by buying something that had both good and bad reviews.
Maybe i'm lucky to own one that works as i aknowledge that buying online doesn't always work out.
That being said this product exists because it has worked for many as well. I get caught up in reviews sometimes even on the high rated ones. It's hard to look away from poor ratings.... but not this time.
This item is indeed working but i must admit i still have my doubts about it. It does seem fragile so keep that in mind...
If it wasn't fragile then i'd give it a 5. So 4 will do.
I hope my random stream of conciousness helps you in buying or not buying this item and many more items!
p.s. the look of this baby is 75% why i bought it i admit. She's a cute thang.
I was looking for a cassette recorder to make my own mixtapes after seeing my grandmother's tape collecting. After searching, I eventually settled on this recorder. So far, it has performed excellently!
Visually it's reminiscent of vintage recorders, though while not as sturdy, it's a pretty good-looking device overall with its various 1980's styling cues such as the fonts, striping, and shape.
Its performance has also been stellar. It's simple to use, the buttons and inputs feel solid, and the sound quality is pretty nice. Though if the inputted sound is a little loud, it can hurt the quality of the recording.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, and I'd strongly recommend this recorder for those who want to get into recording their own tapes!
What a waste of money. For under $60 I didn't really expect much but this is ridiculous. I bought this for my 96 year old father so he could tape some important moments of his life. The buttons are so cheap and flimsy they either stick or just plain don't work. The record button quit working after the second day. The quality of what was recorded was just plain crappy. I'd have done better to just throw my money in the garbage. At least then I wouldn't be filling up the landfill with this garbage.
La calidad de audio no es muy buena. El adaptador de enegía dejó de funcionar a las pocas horas de uso. Las baterías no duran tanto y necesita 4 tipo C, que son carísimas. Sin embargo la reproducción y grabación es adecuada.
