Purchased a similar Coby player last summer. Wanted to stock up on a few cassette players for all the tapes I have before those players become absolete. Tried the unit at purchase and it worked. Put it away in a safe, dry place until this summer. The tape player no longer functions and for no apparent reason. It was good for only two plays! And now it's really hard to find a boom box or stereo with a cassette player!! To be fair, the radio and CD player still work, but I didn't buy it for the radio and CD player. As for personal care and capability, I have an old GE boom box from the 1980s that still works, a stereo from the 1970s that still works, and a computer from the 1983 that would still work if technology hadn't changed so much. All were well used over the years. Walmart is great and my favorite place to shop. However, Coby (and perhaps other off brand names) may not be the wisest purchase. You may want to consider the warranty if you're buying Coby. I didn't. I'm sorry now.
