5.0 out of 5 stars Old-fashioned Quality, January 2, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic RQ2102 Cassette Recorder (Office Product)
I purchased this tape recorder/player for my father, who is legally blind but still likes to lecture on various gardening topics for local clubs. He wanted a way to record his lectures as well as a back-up tape player in case the one provided by the Association for the Blind has a problem. Therefore the buttons have to be large and easy to mark in a unique way and the operation has to be simple. I have always liked Panasonic and I was not disappointed this time, either. The player works perfectly and the built-in microphone picked up the music I was playing from another audio-tape player with surprising accuracy, as well as my voice. The buttons come with raised emblems which will help my father to find the one he wants. The recorder runs efficiently on 4 size "C" batteries, as well as plugging into the wall, and has ports for headphones and a hand-held microphone (not included with this unit). Best of all from my point of view, it looks and feels like my favorite old tape recorder from the 1970's. I didn't get to handle it for very long because it was a gift, but I really like it.

I want to send my personal story to 5 grandchildren. Can I record on it for a long period of time each cassette and then recreate it on another one? I am 78 and and don't understand this stuff very well. Thanks.

What you want is to duplicate the original tape that you made. You cannot use this tape recorder to do that. You can record on a cassette but in order to duplicate it, you need a cassette recorder with two heads. This one has just one.
