Inexpensive Pleasant Surprise! Don't throw away those old tapes just yet!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neewer Portable USB 2.0/1.1 Handheld Tape to PC Recorder Super USB Cassette-to-MP3 Converter Capture (Convert Cassettes into Digital MP3 Files) (Electronics)
I kind of came across this item by accident. I have a bunch of old cassette tape recordings and thought this product might be a great way to preserve them. I bought this product with pretty low expectations. I took it out of the package and hooked it up to my Mac laptop. No need to install the software that accompanied the unit. Audacity is a free download for Mac users. At a glance, it looks just like an ordinary walkman-style unit but has the USB connector. I popped in a cassette, launched Audacity (you do have to adjust the preferences in Audacity to receive audio from the unit) and pressed play and then pressed record in Audacity and to my surprise, I was up and running in no time! Certainly not the best quality unit but an excellent choice for the money. I would recommend this product to anyone that has an old box of cassette tapes and they are unwilling to part with. A great choice for both PC and Mac users (the included instructions are for Windows but should translate easily for Mac users). Don't throw out those old tapes without first considering this product!!
