failed to record music properly

    Comments about RadioShack Cassette Recorder:

    The cassette recorder is compact, the price is ok, and has a lot of features. However, the voice activated feature works against recording music. For example, it stops recording when there are rests in the music, and when picking up sound again, the first note is always warped. When I play back the tape, the speed is faster then recorded. Probably good for recording conversation or speech, but not music.

          Cons

          • Bulky
          • Does Not Rewind Properly

          Best Uses

            Comments about RadioShack Cassette Recorder:

            This hand held dictating machine is a little larger than our previous machines. When rewinding, it rewinds too fast and to play it back is too fast too so that it is impossible to hear the playback.

            • Transcribing Minutes

            Comments about RadioShack Cassette Recorder:

            I purchased this cassette player solely for transcribing minutes. So far it's doing a good job. The only setback is that a DC adapter is not included. I need plenty of batteries to keep it going.

              I BOUGHT THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY MOM WHO IS IN HER 70s AND REFUSES TO GET WITH THE TIMES AND BUY SOMETHING MORE TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED. SHE'S NOT HARD TO PLEASE WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING CASSETTE RECORDERS, BUT SHE WASN'T PLEASED AT ALL WITH THIS ONE. WASTE OF MY MONEY.

                    Comments about RadioShack Cassette Recorder:

                    This was supposed to be used for dictating letters and memos. Sometimes it runs and sometimes it doesn't. Going to try and find something other than RadioShack which, I noticed, didn't have great reviews but finding full size tape recorders is difficult.

                    Comments about RadioShack Cassette Recorder:

                    From day one, the sound fades when recording. Almost like the motor is weak. Multiple new batteries used and same problem. I have used the same brand of recorder for about 30 years and if I get 6 months out of one I am happy. I dictate and record conversations for insurance interviews. Use the recorders about 2 hours a day. I just don't like it when I take one out of the package and it doesn't work right.
