5.0 out of 5 starsStill having fun making my own tapes
Reviewed in the United States on September 23, 2015
Hard to find cassette tapes anymore...I like to keep these on hand as I still use my cassette player from time to time and like to make my own exercise tapes. I'll remain old school until the player finally dies. Nothing against new technology, but if your electronics still work, why not use them until they don't?
These tapes look nothing like what I was assuming I bought. I am concerned to try them out worried that they will be junky quality! Be prepared for a return if these tapes suck. I will not be purchasing again from this company. I don't trust where these tapes came from. Pictured tapes say where they are from, have information about company etc.. These tapes say nothing, nothing! Nothing about any place they are from. I truly believe these tapes are chinese stolen fake tapes with them putting Maxell on the sticker then placing that sticker on plank cassette cases!!! I will not buy these from this supplier again! They should have product info on them. They are blank everywhere and have a sticker here and there. Totally a scam.
This pack of tapes were new and unopened upon arrival. When I attempted to try them in my school's old recorders, neither worked at all. Our Media Specialist theorized that the tape sprockets were different from those required for these old recorders. We tried 3 different recorders. Sadly, they were a bust! I was eager to use a tape recorder to take reading samples of my students that would be easy for me to study and keep to show progress or lack of progress. The Media Specialist found a recording app for me to use on my personal school laptop computer. Much better! The tapes themselves were just fine- very difficult to find though in retail stores!
