My wife and I went to look at a house, then went to the mall to look for a tape recorder at Radio Shack, but couldn’t decide on which one. Anyone care to comment on what they have used, are using, or plan to purchase?
I would like to get a tape recorder for the convention so that I can refer back to the tapes when I return. I think I have decided on the mini ones, but it is not written in stone since the regular sized tape machines are not that big anymore.
My concern while reviewing them in the store was the quality. Now it could be the atmosphere in Radio Shack, or it could be the quality of the product. I don’t know since I have not sat down and did any reviews on what to look for in a tape device.
Not knowing the size of the rooms, the background noise that may be involved, does make it hard to choose the right tape machine. I would like anyone’s opinion on what to look for and possibly recommendations on what model to get. Was thinking under $100 would be reasonable. This was only because the highest one I saw there was $129, so one of these models must be sufficient. Is this a normal price for these devices?
I have eliminated digital since 32 minutes is not going to be enough information for 3 days and I would have no way to unload it as I don’t have a laptop to transfer each 30 minutes to.
Should I review the ones closely one more time at Radio Shack, or should I go to some other electronics store or larger department store to see if they have Sony, Panasonic, and other brands?
