Pros: YES, IT DOES WORK, "RIGHT OUTTA' THE BOX!"
BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED, ENGINEERED, AND EASILY WORTH FIVE STARS PLUS.
IT WAS OPERATIONAL AND RECEIVING MANY SIGNALS WITHIN THREE MINUTES OF INSTALLATION!
Other Thoughts: LOOKS LIKE AN APPLE PRODUCT WHICH WILL ADD TO YOUR SELF ESTEEM AT NO ADDITIONAL COST!
BUY SEVERAL, WISH I HAD!
This review is from: SONY - USB Stereo Turntable (PS-LX300USB)
Pros: As has been said many times, "it worked right outta the box!"
It looks just like most any external turntable. The tone arm appears extremely fragile, but designed for just enough pressure to obtain the best signal to noise ratio when playing or recording that old LP, so treat it gently!
If you spend some time playing with the excellent Sony software included, you won't believe the beautiful sound derived from your old LPs. There is a certain dynamic quality in them that appears missing in today's techno-perfect CDs.
The software also contains other features that so far remain unexplored due to getting this device up and running.
An added bonus is being able to use it as a stand alone player for old LPs on your home audio system. The quality is amazing.
Cons: This is not a CON in the normal sense. It is something you have to endure in this kind of recording situation.
Unfortunately, you can't copy an LP like you would a digital file. So, if the vinyl recording is 30 minutes long, it will take 30 minutes to record digitally.
Grab yourself a good book to read while the music plays in the background.

Pros: Having had the machine less than 24 hours, these are my initial observations:The SCX-4725FN is typical Samsung quality engineering and construction.
With this MFC, it may be necessary power on only when the need arises, since warm-up is almost immediate.
Drivers were installed by letting Vista find them on the supplied disk, and everything worked out fine for copying, scanning, and printing. NOTE: Am using graphics programs (Vista incl.) to access scanner.
The printing quality is excellent, even in the toner saving mode!
Also, speed of operation in all modes tested is impressive.
Have not had an opportunity to use the fax, but do not expect any hitches using that mode.
Cons: The only real problem has been an acrid odor smelling a bit like burning paint and plastic coming from the heat generating part of the machine. Hopefully it is part of the breaking-in process.
This is quite a departure from my little Samsung 2010 which I leave on all the time with no heat problems at all.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a very fine piece of equipment at a bargain price!
My main concern is the acrid odor mentioned above.
Because of that issue, my rating is three stars.
However, if the odor problem dissipates, the rating will be revised upward
