Completely devastated as incredibly easy to use but does not play tapes correctly whilst capturing data. Using tapes we knew to be in perfect working order (and a few minutes before played faultlessly on another player) were slowed down, distorted and finally damaged by this device. Would not recommend and wish I had listened to the advice of others who said not to buy this at all

I was surprised by how well this works. I can't rate the software as I'm using an existing audio editing package. But the tape player works fine. Ignore the descriptions printed on the front ("hifi", "mega-bass" etc) which I think have just been copied off an old walkman! Also the results you get will of course be limited by the age/condition of the cassettes you're playing. Also worth investing in some tape head cleaning fluid as old cassettes tend to shed a lot of their oxide coating.

Cheaply made( hence the price) of wafer thin plastic,poor quality tape head and mechanics.You have to depress front cover to engage tape head to cassette.On the plus side it does playback audio cassettes. I think audiophiles would be prepared to pay over £50 for a substantially better product, but their is nothing else out there!

I ordered this unit after seeing a few decent reviews and as I have boxes of cassettes that might be worth copying to mp3. I opted for this one as the price was low and I don't have any great confidence that ripped cassettes will provide that good quality sound.

Sadly, the unit didn't work. Several sets of new batteries and when "play" button depressed nothing happens. It also didn't work on usb as per the instructions.

I reported it through the Amazon system and the sellers gave me an instant refund. No quibbles. And that has to be applauded.

It does what it say it will do very well.
It is a great way of sorting out old tapes for the DVD/CD format

Works well as either mobile cassette player or just for converting to mp3. Not complicated to use the included software.

The build quality is rather poor but it was very cheap. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work with Windows 8.1 but that's hardly surprising, so I have to use it with an older laptop.
