Using the first Panasonic I ordered I noticed when I fast forward or reverse by holding the button down it makes a loud high-speed sound through the speaker, which I usually tried to muffle by putting my hand over it. Recently the unit failed to record more and more often after pressing the record button--the tape would move forward but no sound would be recorded, to the point that it did this all the time. I pulled out my spare and to my surprise it did not make the loud noise when fast forwarding or reversing the tape while holding down the button, sparing my ears. This leads me to believe that the first unit was defective in that respect--the mechanism was out of alignment or something which led to it ultimately not recording either. So far the second unit has no problems and I've ordered a third unit as my new spare.
By the way, for immediate self-contained playback, compared to a good quality stereo digital recorder for several hundred dollars, which requires playback through a computer and speaker system for anything but tiny tinny sound, the Panasonic cassette player gives a louder, fuller, more natural sound and allows immediate playback. (I have to check whether headphones can be plugged directly into those little digital recorders because I didn't have headphones when first investigating them.--headphones plugged in work fine with the Zoom recorders, at least the Zoom Handy H2 recorder)
If your professor is fine with it and your a bit of a slouch you could definitely grab some long play tapes and record entire lectures with this and go over them with a fine tooth comb later, which I find better than my shorthand notes.
Oops, just discovered that the microphone input does not work. I used a mic that was working on a similar machine. This was a used/returned item and, apparently, neither thoroughly checked out nor fully/honestly disclosed by the person who returned it: Maybe that is why it was listed as "good" instead of "very good"--thus, I lowered its rating to a B / four stars. I give two stars to the person who returned the item without fully/honestly disclosing this defect, had it been known.
