    ION Audio TAPE 2 PC reviews

    TAPE 2 PC USB Cassette-to-MP3 Converter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 75.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Below Standard Quality From the very first tape, it dragged and wobbled. I tried several other tapes, but to no avail. It's very cheaply made. The tape drive mechanism is very unstable. Even the buttons are flimsy when engaged. This is a dual tape machine and the main problem was with the Tape 1 side. But it totally defeats the purpose of why I purchased it. I have since returned it, because in my view it's an inferior product. To be honest, it's not even worth $15.00, let alone $$ Manufacturers who produce products like this need to get their act together. I realize it's not a $300+ machine. Even so, for something costing over $$ it should at least be functional.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unexpected disappointment. I am plesed to be invited for comments, to be able to air my views about this product. I received everything in good order, thanks. The recorder/player works OK (sofar; I have not run it much)but the softwear does not function at all! I can hear the player in the computer until I plug in the USB connector. Then I hear only distorted noise. I set everything on my PC (Vista) as instructed, checking it several times, to no avail! When I pull out the USB plug, I can hear the tape playing again. I wonder, what I did wrong, if anything. Perhaps someone can help me? If it ever works, I'll be able to give u a better comment, that I am willing to do. Regards, Laszlo.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroyed my cassettes, doors do not close, cheap motor. This is a terrible product. Both cassette doors don't fully close most of the time. The motor makes really strange noise and appears to be very low quality. In my first hour of usage, the machine destroyed three perfectly new blank cassette tapes and worse, it destroyed one of my precious originals. It's going back to B&H today! Do NOT buy this machine! Instead, wait until B&H offers a much better double tape deck. B&H is an outstanding company and Nathan (customer service) was very nice w/ me concerning returning this product on the phone. I look forward to B&H offering a better product to make a purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect, but who is? The painful truth is that converting cassettes to MP3s is not easy. Even if you have a cassette deck with an auxiliary out, there are few guarantees that it will work with your computer's auxiliary input. But the Tape 2 USB Converter by ION uses a USB codec, which is essentially universal. It comes with a CD-ROM containing Easy Converter software (which is a little too elementary) and Audacity (which is strange that it needs to be a CD, seeing how it is freeware). But overall, this is a very good product that produces good quality, and as far as converting cassettes to MP3s, no one really has any room to complain.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best sound quality I was excited at first to receive the product and find how easy it was to use. Set up was plug and play and getting songs from tapes to an MP3 was fast and painless however the sound quality is NOT good. I was disappointed to hear all of the static and artifact that takes away from the sound. After repeating the upload process several times using several different tapes I concluded that this device is unable to produce a decent quality MP3 from the tapes.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap tape deck that did not work well My first impression was that it was of mediocre quality - very lightweight, and when you press the play button, the entire panel of buttons (including rewind, ff, etc.) bends downward. I wasn't particularly impressed with the sound, but I chalked that up to the tapes I was using. After a couple of days, it started to have trouble playing tapes that ran fine on a different player (a boom box). The speed would fluctuate, slowing down and speeding up. At that point, I returned it in favor of another brand that cost two-and-a-half times as much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product does what's advertised Bought this to convert a library of cassettes to digital format. Product is ok but you can't expect Nakkamici quality for $90. This is replacing a 32 year old well made Akai deck which I can no longer get parts for and fix. The CD that comes with the unit says to go to the website to download the latest version of the software. Beware, I believe I got a Trojan virus on my machine from this software. It's pretty basic anyway and I have since replaced with Audacity. This machine does what it advertises and is a cheap price. Hope it lasts for a few years so I can do lots of conversions.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't deliver what it promises I have an extensive cassette collection that I was hoping to convert to digital for my new ipod. The Ion Tape 2 PC sounded like the answer to my needs, and a way to save quite a bit of money by transferring my original tapes.However, it didn't deliver what it promised. The conversion process was tedious = each track must be played individually - no high speed dubbing. I'd had been willing to spend the time if the sound quality after conversion was acceptable. However, the songs once converted, to the ipod format were absolutely terrible. I called B&H to return the product the next day.I've dealt with B&H for over 20 years and I believe this is the first product I've ever had to return to them. ...
