This review is from: GPCT Portable Cassette Tape-To-MP3 USB Converter/Player with Headphones and Software CD for PC
Pros: Cheap, cables included, included program is good
Cons: Cheap, instructions lacking concerning the program
Other Thoughts: I needed something inexpensive to convert cas. tapes to audio and this fit the bill. The program that was included is packed with options, but lacking on instructions and tutorials. On the second day using the device, the play button came off when the two plastic connecting pieces broke. The device could still be used but this was annoying. The recordings were great, so that makes up for some of the complaints. I was surprised it included a cheap set of earphones. Also, there wasn't any information concerning what adapter voltage is needed. If it was built anywhere else in the world, there would be a tag with this information on it. I guess China doesn't add this information.
