QFX RETRO-39 Reviews

Retro tech is better

My sister cant read letters and has trouble with mobile phones. So the QFX shoebox tape recorder is perfect for getting letters on tape , and sending them herself. I can't get a similar product in Australia. Thank goodness its still available from B & H online! I don't know why this tech has been dormant for so long. Its simple, sturdy and can travel anywhere. Who says the cassette era is dead? In my view its time to say retro is best!

So...I read the negative reviews and didn't believe the haters, but truly, this unit barely functions. Super low quality, lots of buzzing and hum. Low audio quality, even for products of this type. I had shoebox recorders like this growing up, and this is the worst one I've ever used. It's basically a nostalgia prop in my practice space.

when first got it, the usb was the only thing working. after playing around with it for awhile, got the tape player working. the recording either way has a load sound in it. not good for recording music.

I like the tape recorder, received rapid delivery but the automatic stop does not work. But it's too much hassle and cost to return it just for that problem alone. It fits my needs the way it is.

I am 75 years old and still know my way around very well. This cassette recorder is excellent for old tape recordings from the 60s to 80s. Back then everything was recorded in MONO. This recorder is right for people who want to digitize their ancient mono recordings. This recorder is not suitable for playing back stereo music or sound recordings in STEREO. I give this recorder the highest score because it is very, very easy to digitize your MONO recordings. Peter from Germany

Inner workings too loud

Inner working of recorder drown out the sound of what you are recording. It's too noisy to even hear what anyone is saying while using a mic also. We thought the exterior mic would fix the problem but it's just as bad.
