Dawn, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Does what it says and saves audio tapes, with good sound quality, to computer. Looks nice too.
Bad points:
The record button has to be activated via the computer, but there is no instruction that this is so. I found out by luck, after at first thinking the product was broken.

Gary, London

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
None.
Bad points:
Although this product comes with 2 cassette decks, neither played tapes at the right speed, which rendered the conversion process pointless from the outset. Of the 2 software products supplied, Mixmeister runs very slowly (it took about 2 hours to convert one 40-minute recording); and Audacity has an annoying tendency to skip a few notes every so often, ironically giving a result similar to the stylus jumping on a vinyl record. So I returned mine and got a refund. If you can buy the music on CD or MP3 download, I think it's easier and more reliable to do it that way.

Owen, Axminster

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Plays even old tapes with reasonable quality. Software is functional, though there are some issues with cataloguing. The inclusion of Audacity is useful, particularly with noisy tapes.
Bad points:
Tape reverse would be useful, to record both sides, but you can do it manually.
