4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent item
Had previously tried to digitise tape using line in connections from a quality walkman - sound was always hissy and extra software to remove noise dulled the sound. I was given this as a birthday present and was very impressed - almost no hiss was transferred to the recorded sound-file. It's not a quick process (real time encoding) but the quality of the sound means I...

3.0 out of 5 stars Works for me - Audacity software recommended
I have now transferred several tapes successfully into MP3 files of reasonable sound quality (allowing for the quality of the tape and the lossiness of the MP3 compression system).

I agree with those who believe that the hardware is flimsy for the price; however, it is sufficient for the job. And, as others have remarked, the accompanying documentation for the...

Tres pratique et rapide d'utilisation, it does the job very well. On ne perd pas en qualite. J'en suis tres contente. J'ai transforme toutes mes cassettes d'enfance et des vieilles cassettes de musique en mp3. Je le recommande.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish, 2 April 2010

Mr. Richard Green "Raven" (Birmingham) - See all my reviews

Do not buy this as you will be wasting your money. It is cheaply made, the instructions are non existent and the sound quality is terrible.

ION should be ashamed of marketing such a piece of junk.

I would have given this zero stars but Amazon don't give that option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works straight out of the box, 3 Mar. 2012

Having read a great many of the reviews before purchase I was a little sceptical to say the least but went ahead and kept fingers crossed.
The delivery was very quick and I went through the set-up process without a hitch but then I use a Mac so very well used to iTunes which probably made everything much smoother from the start.
To begin with I tested out EZ's own software and after some minor tweeking with the Mac's input level the second recorded test track went like clockwork, very acceptable quality on playback.
However I do agree that the unit is not the most robust and needs careful handling, nor is it the most beautiful design but as far as I am concerned it does the job I brought it for very well. The instructions were moderately brief and to the point.
My tapes will be preserved and more important all my recorded lecture notes are now safe and secure.
Overall I am very pleased with the Ion Cassette Converter well worth the money - hence the 5*.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tape MP3 Converter, 5 Aug. 2011

I would not recommend this product but it might be the best of a bad bunch.
First thing do not even attempt to use the provided software.Just throw it away. It does not work.
Download audacity from sourceforge which is free and safe. Another reviewer has covered the detail.
In addition download mp3merge amd mp3split and GUI.
Use the converter to produce a single MP3. Best done one side at a time. Merge the MP3s and the split them so you can create individual MP3 for whatever you deem to be a chapter. Finally and optionally use Microsoft Media Player to burn CD. I found the recorded volume was low even thought it sounded good on the headset so I had to play it through speakers to get a decent sound. Generally Amazon products are good but this one slipped through the net.
If you are desperate to copy a tape then buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tape to MP3, 15 Mar. 2012
This review is from: ION iTR03 Tape Express Tape to MP3 Converter (Electronics)
I was a member of a rock band in the 1980's, alot of material was on tape
I wanted to convert it to digital medium, this unit was perfect for the job
It took me back dealing with a cassette player again, how far we've come, but
you dont forget, its easy to use, you will need to download itunes on your pc (annoyingly so)
for us non apple brain washed users, but you can take the music file off, I used a free version
of Audacity to re-edit, great piece of kit, recommend them both
the tape converter comes with software which is fairly basic, but enough to do the job
so all my old cassette tape's are now history and the music is now Mp3....brilliant,
take you time in leaning how to use it (I know impossible to wait that long) but it will pay off......enjoy
