I've had a lot of record players through the years, and I chose this one based on reviews and the cassette deck. It beats the "suitcase style" record players, but that's where it ends.
It works fine, no qualms there.
However, one of the hinges were not secured properly and the first time I opened the player, a plastic bit shot out and past me - it could have been dangerous had it hit me in the face. It doesn't hurt the integrity of the player and it didn't hit me, so I didn't mind.
My other complaint is the speaker quality. You expect a player with built-in speakers to be underwhelming, but these sound very muffled and too "bass" heavy.
You cannot beat the price tag, however. I will be acquiring speakers and then I'll be set.
