I have needed to replace a cassette recorder/player that I've had for 25 yrs. I've wanted one to record conversations with/of my grand kids and to have on hand when a thought occurs while driving or immediate account. In looking for a replacement,the recorders were either too expensive or too complicated for my needs. This popped up while I was on the computer-as a result of previous searches-so I did more research. The description was exactly what I wanted plus more, and the price was discounted. I read reviews-as I always do before purchasing-and they were all good if not great. I ordered on-line, after 10 pm, and picked it up the next morning.
The instructions were easy to understand (lots of pictures and graphics) and it was easy to use. I tried recording off of the radio, then played back. It sounded great-clear & understandable. I've used it a couple of times in the car and it works just as I hoped for.
There are several other functions, also. It has file management, time and date, a search/function option, ability to change recording mode, and keeps a record of elapsed and remaining recording time.
I would highly recommend this product. Actually, a lot of the reviews were students using it for
classes, and professionals for meetings. That really was really a big selling point.
