Nice unit but MP3 instructions are confusing and use of MP3 functions is not intuitive
The unit is nice but I almost returned it because of the difficulty in figuring out how to use the MP3 functions. That section of the instructions is poorly written. Those instructions refer to non-existent button labels, grammatical errors ("record" instead of "recorded"), confusing wording, apparently reversed words ("Tape" and "MP3") and I'm still not 100% sure of that. Why would I play music on a cassette tape in order to record from MP3 to tape? That's why I think that "Tape" and "MP3" are reversed.
It took me a long time to go through each step of the MP3 functions to familiarize myself with them but I would still need my marked-up instructions for anything involving MP3, SD card, and USB (the instructions say "U") functions, the controls of which are so closely grouped at the bottom front of the unit that I managed to inadvertently delete my MP3 files several times from my USB drive and SD card while trying to figure out how the MP3 functions work. Make sure that you have a backup copy on another device for any MP3 file that you want to play or record to the cassette tape. The hole labeled "MP3 MIC" is not for inserting a microphone jack. I tried that and realized my mistake before causing any damage. It is for direct MP3 voice recording to USB drive or SD card, a nice feature.
Because the radio tuning scale is quite recessed, the FM band tuning scale at the top of the chassis cannot be read unless you view it at eye level. The sound volume can be turned up to boombox loud with good fidelity.Read full review
review update: tape drive quit after 2 weeks. this really is junk. dont buy one
this is a very basic item. has built in mike but note there are no jacks for plugging in an external mike or sound source (such as cd player) sound is good but not great. volume is very acceptable and has 3 tone controls (bass, mid-range, treble). Reception is equal to or slightly better than comparable units I own. I also have a higher end unit by same manufacturer on which tape player quit after a few months. I am sure all parts are plastic. i wanted a compact unit to sit on my night table and play tapes. this does that very satisfactorily so I got what I paid for but cannot recommend it if you want more. does not have automatic shut tape off. instructions are minimal and in spanish and english.
Overall fair value for the price but spoiled by scanty operating instructions. There is a caution to connect to correct power supply, however many people are used to devices selecting input power automatically (eg shavers). I live in a country with 220 V AC supply and looked to see if there was a power select switch - I didn't find one but should have looked further .......... there was no mention of this switch in the printed instructions but inside the battery compartment there is a slide switch to select between 110 and 220 V, this was set to 110 V as default. Having not seen this I connected to the mains and switched on - BANG, I promptly burnt out the power transformer!! OK, my fault, perhaps I should have looked more diligently for a power selection switch (fortunately I had a spare plug-in transformer which was compatible with the DC input socket and so was able to use the radio. This would not have happened if the instructions had included a specific reference to the presence and site of the power selector switch. Read full review
