Pros:best mechanical non-auto-reverse player

Cons:bad tape window, odd door opening, some periodic cellphone noise

This is a decent cassette player in a field of crappy cassette players. The really good ones cost much more. This is probably the best cassette player that still has mechanical buttons and mechanism, which means it is much more reliable than the better players with electronic buttons and mechanism. It also doesn't have auto-reverse, and thus avoids all the complication that auto-reverse brings. Battery life is great. It is quite light and compact. The radio is hard to figure out, as usual. The window for viewing tape motion is too dark to see through. The door prys open from the side, which is awkward - one's hand expects front-opening. It picks up some periodic cellphone noise, not as much as cheaper players, not as little as expensive metal-body players.
