Wow! Awesome tool, idiotic reviewers, 8/8/2010 5:11:01 PM

Pros: Perfect device for playing vinyl. Easy, plug -n- play and sounds great. I have owned many vinyl record players in the last 40 years and I will have to say, this one is done right. Sony does vinyl justice.

Cons: Not free

Overall Review: Hey, plug your piewad into a speaker and spin on it. This turntable is excellent. READ THE SCREEN! (instructions)

Probably OK as long as you don't use USB 4/12/2010 4:33:03 PM

Pros: Looks nice. Includes cables. Physically does function, spin, raise arm, speed, etc. Probably plays a record to the RCAs if that's what you want to do, though I have not tried yet.

Cons: Made by Sony. What more to say. Website sucks. There is NO tech support. NO DRIVERS on the CD. Just some audio app that I have yet to see due to the lack of drivers. Using a Win XP SP2 or SP3 computer, no dice. "USB Audio CODEC" drivers do not exist, and the "troubleshooting" makes no mention of why they might be missing. Advance Google Searched Microsoft.com and sony.com for 1.5hours. I can find nothing about USB Audio Codec and how to install it. The sony site even says under drivers and software "there are no file for your model". ???? Huh? So, if the CD is lost, you better have it backed up. You won't be getting software on the web for this baby. Makes me feel like I'm back in the Win98 days of USB, leave it to sony.

Overall Review: A friend bought one of these and asked me to install it for them. I had recommended the Rosewill but they got this thing for some unknown reason. I detest sony and this is just another example of why. Why not just say this thing does NOT work with Windows XP? I am not using a 64bit version either. 32Bit home and pro, both fail to see this and load a driver.

Awesome Turntable. Follow the directions!!! 2/10/2010 11:29:05 AM

Pros: This turntable runs great for a standalone deck. You could plug your 'puter to the turn table via USB, but the deck itself rocks. I bought it for my wife for valentines day and she loves it.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: To all the negative reviews, read the instructions. In addition, to the comment that you need a sound system to make this work, that is false. You only need speaker system that has a RCA audio input. You can get a speaker system for 24.99 (Eagle ET-AR502-BK 15 Watts RMS 2.1 Speakers). But otherwise, this deck is worth the money.

Tuntable was defective & I can't return it 2/1/2010 8:58:56 PM

Pros: NONE

Cons: As a newbie to stereo systems, I thought I'd be able to just take the turntable out of the box & play my records. I didn't understand that I'd have to buy a receiver & speakers just to listen to my records. After spending money to get the whole system set up, the sound was terrible--like major static & as if the needle kept bouncing around. Since I am a newbie, I thought it must be my fault so I cleaned my records real well (another cost) & tried again. Same dismal sound. by this time, I was just past the 30 day mark & found that a return in an exchange for a turntable that worked wouldn't be allowed. I never even got around to hooking the turntable up to my computer to copy my records to discs because the sound is so horrible. This has been a total waste of my time & money.

Overall Review: I didn't realize from the reviews I read that I'd have to already have a stereo system in place in order to hear my records. The reviews said it was so simple to take it out of the box & play--but that's only if you have all the other equipment in place. I didn't realize that the turntable wasn't complete in itself so I could just listen to my records.

PS-LX300USB Compatibility 64 bit Update 1/22/2010 3:58:16 AM

Pros: Can't give an opinion because I haven't used it yet.

Cons: Do not install the software on a 64 bit system. I tried it anyways even though the manual says that it does not support a 64 bit system. It totally messed up my Vista 64 bit computer and now I have to reload everything. System restore doesn't even work.

Overall Review: I thought that what's the big deal. If it doesn't work then I'll just uninstall the software. Big mistake! I did do the update for the software that came with it. I cannot stress it enough. Do not install the software on a 64 bit system!

PS-LX300USB Compatibility 64 bit 1/20/2010 6:02:49 PM

Pros: I was setting it up by reading the "Operating Instructions" and everything was going good until I got to page 9. Continued in "Cons".

Cons: On page 9 where it has the system requirements it says in small print, "64 bit operating systems are not supported."

Overall Review: If I had been forwarned I would not have purchased this product. The system requirements to use the USB feature should be made extremely clear.

What can I say? 1/12/2010 5:56:58 PM

Pros: Plays records. Makes MP3s.

Cons: Audio cable is a little short.

Overall Review: The unit actually came with a USB cable AND the RCA cable is built in. This is great as it saves me a trip to Wal-mart. They even shipped a 45rpm adaptor. Love it!
