4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: Difficult to get the gain correct from cassette to cassette. Not able to listen to the tracks via PC unless you use the included software. Software forces you to use iTunes to import finished tracks.

Other Thoughts: (using via Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit)

1 out of 5 eggsA simple cable can do the same thing...

Pros: Simplicity; you just plug into your USB port, pop in your cassettes and record MP3s on your computer.

Cons: Definite overkill, considering that virtually EVERY computer with sound has an analog-to-digital converter built in, and you can capture analog audio from ANY source (LPs, 8-tracks, DAT tapes, MiniDiscs) using a much less expensive cable and any of several free digital audio recording programs.

Other Thoughts: All you need is a cable with stereo RCA plugs on one end, and a 3.5mm stereo plug on the other end. Connect the RCA plugs to the "line out" jacks on the tape deck, and plug the 3.5mm plug into the line in jack on the back of your computer (it's colored light blue, usually). Download the free CDex software and sample and convert the analog audio to MP3 files. I did this five years ago with my entire cassette collection, and love the fact that I can now listen to all my old tapes on my iPod.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cassette player that's still available commercially

Cons: ridiculous. any cassette device with a line-out jack will deliver the same service at at least half the cost.

Other Thoughts: if you're willing to spend this much just to dub cassettes, you don't need shopping advice; you need shopping therapy. for the same price you can get the same functionality plus additional media options.

1 out of 5 eggsUnconvincing

Pros: Looks fancy, dual cassette deck, "USB"

Cons: Over a decade ago, I remember having a soundblaster compatible (Mediavision) soundcard in a 486SX25 computer. Even back then (just as today), the soundcard had a stereo line-in port. Using the standard stereo line-in, I connected my brothers dual cassette deck "boombox" to the computer and recorded directly to the PC. So I'm really not sure what value this device delivers. I think walmart sells stereos with line-out jacks for much less than a Benji.

Other Thoughts: Seems like a high-priced gimmick for technology that existed over a 15 years ago. Granted, back then MP3 didn't exist and hard drive capacities didn't make full song recording feasible. But this product doesn't deliver any tangible benefits that I can comprehend.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not as quick as claimed

Pros: Simple to operate, reliable

Cons: "high speed" dubbing not so high speed...

Other Thoughts: I really like this product as I have 2000 cassettes to transfer over to mp3. The only drawbackis the fact that you have to high speed dub to the program and then convert to mp3, this makes the high speed dubbing not quite so high speed. It only saves about 5 minutes... on a 90 minute cassette that's not worth the effort when you can skip the step and simply record at normal speed... Overall I likethis product though.
