There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My car doesn't have an auxiliary jack, and I was too cheap to take a chance on the bluetooth tape adapter, so this looked like a good buy despite the mixed reviews. Even if it wasn't great, it just has to work. "How bad could it be?" I asked the void.
The void responded by kicking me in the neck.
I'm having a difficult time coming up with any positive features, so I'll just give you the top 3 problems instead:
This cassette, and by that I mean the device, not the audio, emits a loud grinding noise. Loud to the point that I'm not sure you can comfortably drown the noise out with your music. The sound seems to come from the three innocuous-looking inner gears. The only purpose of these gears, which are meshed to each other and to nothing else in the unit, is to spin freely, a task which they absolutely refuse to complete for more than a moment at a time.
My tape deck, on getting resistance from the now-only-decorative gears, spits the tape out. Over and over. But that's actually okay, because--
NO AUDIO COMES THROUGH THE SPEAKERS ANYWAY. This feels like something Quality Assurance should have caught. This also requires you have Quality Assurance, so I guess this makes sense.
I tried to deal with a few of the problems on my own. Removing the gears eliminates the noise and the ejection issue, but still no audio. I'll try cleaning the tape head when I'm off work, but I don't have high hopes.
What I DO have is a 1:1 scale model of my childhood that I can hang on my wall.
I have initiated a return. It simply doesn't work, and I shouldn't have to MacGuyver a brand new product into functioning.
Bought an Insignia brand adapter from Best Buy the same day, which worked right out of the box and made zero noise.
On a side note: This is not a flaw of the product but remember to do this in a plus with as least dust as you can I got a spec of dirt in my top screen and a fine piece of lint on my bottom screen not noticeable when the console is on but when off it on there and bothers me again this isn't a product flaw just a heads up to other people screen protectors in general are a pain.

This thing worked... for approximately 12 hours. It randomly ejects, skips constantly, and not to mention the NOISE.Read more
