1 out of 5 eggsNo Driver? Doesn't Work...

Pros: Plays Cassettes

Cons: I made one recording. It had a lot of popping sounds. I thought it was just the old tapes I was using, but then I put in a newer one .. and even when the tape was turned off and I was fast forwarding I heard the 'popping' .. so it must be the device itself. The USB was no longer recognized after I unplugged from the initial use. So I can't get it to record at all anymore. The website says 'install the driver' the manual says 'no driver required' .. and there is no driver to be found anywhere. I call tech-support, I get voice-mail. Don't waste your money.. this doesn't do what it promises. I'm searching for another converter now.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Great product for the price. A little bit concerned at first considering the low price, but actually it turns out to be a very good product. This cassette adapter was simple to use, worked perfectly with no glitches at all. It took me about 5 minutes of fiddling with it to be up and running. Converts what I have on tapes to MP3 files, keeping the same audio quality as what was on the tape. It’s perfect!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You can buy a AC to DC wall adapter (5V DC) to connect the device with the USB cable if you would like to be a little more environmentally friendly without using the batteries right and left.

Would deff recomend to anyone that uses one of these items. Thanks for this great product

1 out of 5 eggsNice idea, but doesn't work

Pros: Small size
Powered by USB

Cons: Recognized by my computer only twice, and never did deliver satisfactory audio to be recorded. After 1st day, computer would no longer recognize the device on USB.

Other Thoughts: The supplied software is Audacity, which is a free download anyway.

I was hoping this thing would work, but I never got it to make a recording longer than a few seconds, then Audacity would crash. With the device disconnected, Audacity works fine, so the tape converter must be faulty.

Don't feel like fooling with fussy hardware, so I will (try to) return it.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

Pros: Very high quality sound. Some tape hiss, of course, but that is easily removable with software. Very good highs, lows and mid-range, excellent sound. For the price, this is really the best way to transfer music to digital format. Built quality also will surprise you and in a good way! Can be used as enjoyable tape listening device with headphones, using better ones, than attached. Way better and much less expensive than I.n, Py.e or Gr..e Dig...l similar designs. Highly recommended piece of creative human engineering!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great way to listen old tapes again and again, over and over...

2 out of 5 eggslimited application

Pros: Can deal with some users needs and expectations.

Cons: If you have well-made music cassettes recorded by quality deck like Nakamichi or Tandberg it would be foolish to create MP3 files which by intent degrade quality. Any dubbing should create WAV or FLAC or some other "lossless" file format.

Other Thoughts: exact same issue with turntables that transform your precious vinyl to MP3.
