Good product !
 
I am also a professional transcriptionist and work with this machine several hours a day. I like it -- it's a good machine for the price. I replace mine about every 3 years or so. I have used machines that are MUCH more expensive and they may have a few additonal features, but this little machine has all the features I really need. I have never had a problem with the foot pedal. The usual reason for replacing is that the longer tapes (90 min. tapes) are heavier and can cause too much drag o...

good price, but not very durable
 
I am a professional transcriber. I do not recommend this for anyone who transcribes on more than an occasional basis. Yes, the price is very good, and when I first bought one I was happy with it. But it broke down very quickly. I had to keep unscrewing and opening the bottom of the (very cheap) foot pedal because the pieces inside that were supposed to connect to cause the tape to move would come loose. Also you have to press play and THEN use the foot pedal in order for it to work.

Great time-saver!
 
As a psychology doctoral student I have to transcribe many therapy and interview tapes for various reasons. This machine has dramtically cut the amount of time needed to do that. I was hesitant to spend the money on a transcritption machine as they are not cheap, but I'm glad I did! It was money well spent and I'm having more time on my hands as a result. I highly recommend investing in one of these if you have to transcribe audiotapes.

Good Bargain
 
I am extremely happy to find this product on Amazon.com, since the retail office product stores don't seem to be carrying such items anymore. Of course, there are more "bells and whistles" that one could desire in such a product, but considering the price, this product is an excellent offer. I was amazed at the speed in which this product arrived at my address once I placed the order. All in all, I have always been very satisfied with Amazon.com, and this purchase did not change my opinion on...

Transcriber Hell
 
Having to plug and unplug your headset for the speaker function to work is a problem.Rememberring to press play before you can use the foot pedeal adds to the steps you need to perform.

Limited by single speed
 
It is a fine transcriber if you only use single speed tapes, but for those who want to tape at half speed to utilize tape space better (i.e. recording 180 minutes on a 90 minute tape), it's not the machine for you. You'll be stuck with a lot of tapes you can't transcribe.

Straightforward and workmanlike machine
 
If you need to transcribe tapes for any reason at all you will save yourself hours of time and frustration by using a tape recorder/player intended for transcription - rather than your tape player alone. Panasonic has been making this good machine for more than a few years. To my knowledge it's the best value around.The foot pedal is essential and easy to use, and allows you to stop, start, and back up your tape without taking your hands off your keyboard. The speaker is good, there is a t...

Cheap, and you get what you pay for
 
This is a cheap machine and not for someone who needs hours worth of transcribing. I used it for only a few weeks and it was okay, but the play function malfuntioned after it got a little warm. I had no foot pedal issues as other have described. Bottom line, I don't recommend it.

Great value
 
This transcriber works great for the price. I am learning to do medical transcription and I haven't used any other transcribers, but this one gets the job done. I don't anticipate getting a different one.

Great Transcriber
 
This is a great transcriber! It seems durable and works well. I haven't had any problems with it except one time I turned off the VSC feature because the tape I had sounded funny, and then it was perfectly fine. The tape I had was old. I would encourage someone looking for a standard cassette transcriber to get this one because the price is right as well.
