Rated 1 out of 5Â by trayala High hopes were shattered
I was so excited to receive this product but that excitement soon turned to disappointment when I tried to play my first record...it skips! It was a brand new record so I know it wasn't an issue with the vinyl. I saw others post similar experiences but wanted this item to work out so I went for it with the hopes that my experience would fall on the positive side of the ratings I read prior to making my purchase. Sad to say that I'll be returning this to the store and my search for a good quality turntable will continue.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by mamasanoftwo This product is a novelty product
It is attractive and does the job of playing records. The sound is a bit muffled and the quality of the plastic used to secure the needle in place is flimsy and broke the minute I touched it to release the latch as instructed. Good thing my daughter will not be using it for portablilty purposes or the needle would have to be secured down somehow.
It is a novelty item and my daughter loves it. There aren't that many record players out there and this one even has a usb to connect to your laptop.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JAE17 VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE
Despite all the negative regarding the audio and other issues from reviewers elsewhere, this is a great portable turntable. Compact, stylish (got the black with cream trim) and well worth the money (on sale plus 30 off). I went with this turntable for our teen daughter and she loves it. Once the audio is hooked to an external speaker, the sound is terrific and it sure is nice that our old records from the 70's are having a deserved comeback.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bith Turntable made a noise and I had to return it.
I loved ordering this for my teen daughter for Christmas, and she was so excited to get it. Unfortunately, the turntable made a screeching noise and we just couldn't keep it. I returned it to my local Koh;'s,, which was convenient, but now I am paying more money to replace it.
One disadvantage of ordering online.
