4.0 out of 5 stars Good for my old tapes, 28 Jun. 2014
This review is from: TaoTronics® TT-CM001 Portable USB Tape Cassette To PC / MP3 Converter Capture Adapter Digital Audio Music Player (Electronics)
I was given the TaoTronics USB Cassette Capture TT-CM001 as a review sample.

Overall, I'm quite impressed with this piece of kit. It will both play tapes like a Walkman & connect to a computer to allow you to make MP3 files of the cassettes.

The conversion to MP3 has be done with the aid of a PC & some form of software. I could not load the Audacity software supplied with the product, as it came on a mini CD, & the laptop I have does not have a tray with centralising clips, so it will not play. However, it is compatible with Total Recorder, which I normally use, and prefer. This is bought software.

The cassette capture can also be used like a conventional Walkman, and comes supplied with in-ear headphones. Its simple lightweight design makes it easy to use on the go. It takes 2 standard AA batteries (not supplied) and gets a good life out of them. It also has the ability to play the tape in a loop, and play both sides of the cassette without turning it over. This means tapes can be enjoyed without annoying breaks in the middle while you fiddle turning the cassette over.

It would be better if it had a belt clip, as it does not have a case, but will fit easily in a pocket.

The rewind and fast-forward buttons appear to be inverted (e.g. 'rewind' actually fast forwards the tape), but work fine & the time to wind the tape is short.
