Overall, I'd say if you need a quality CD recorder for live recording or a project studio, you won't find a better unit with the features offered for anywhere close to this price. I do wish it had balanced input/outputs but still great product for the price.
Just purchased the Tascam CD-RW900SL (Got a GREAT price!) and I'm very impressed with the features and overall quality. I intend to use it for recording live shows I'm doing sound for. I've owned two other CD recorders in the past (Sony RCD-W3) and was satisfied with them until they quit working (almost immediately after warranty ran out) The Tascam has so many more features and I'm counting on it lasting for a extended period of time.
Unit seems to be built very sturdy and is ready for rack mounting. (I don't take anything of value out of the house without a sturdy rack) I do wish it had balanced inputs but can't beat features for the price. Love the remote control, especially when running house sound and recording at the same time.
Although I wasn't really shopping for a CD recorder at the time, once I read the specs and saw the great price it was going for, I couldn't resist.

You will be gretaly disapointed in the Tascam CD-RW 900 and the 900 SL, and the 901 as well. It has a blurry screen, with mostly yellow bars, numbers and such, and it is hard to distinguish, at far away or close up. It is the worst screen I have ever seen on any equipment I have ever owned in 40 years. Screens should be bright and clear and distinct. The Tascam people clearly failed the people who buy this product. I get a sick feeling every time I have to look at my 900 model, and should have sent it back while under first warranty, but thought I could live with it, but disapoints me greatly still after only 4 months of use, and it also puts bad spots on our CD's from time to time, and caused us much grief when trying to master.Now we are not using it at all for any recording purposes, as it can't be trusted any more, and the Tascam people have refused to answer my emails about this issue. Poor peice of equipment, and it will disapoint you when you see the screen and the blur it gives off, not to mention the cd tray sounds really loud when opening and closing, and rough. Not smooth at all as you would expect with proffessional equipment.

      Excellent product and service

      By Richard Walton

      from Baltimore, MD.

      The CD RW-900SL is an excellent choice for professional a stand-alone unit. The first thing we noticed is that Tascam actually improved the CD tray from their older model, to a 'CD self grabbing' feature. Every other feature seems to be the same as the previous model. Guitar Center's Mitchell Shaivitz was tremendously helpful with customer service by getting the product to our studio quickly.

          I am well pleased with the layout of this new machine.
          I am especially impressed with the new slot insertion of CD's instead of
          the tray on my previous Tascam machine. I hope it doesn't start giving that
          "REC ERROR" message like my old one.

          Great unit for about 3 years until it failed me. I popped a CD into the "robust" drive and the Cd got stuck in there. Sent it to get repaired and they said the new drive costs 149.00. You know there is labor added to that. Very disappointed.

            This is the first recorder I have used that have fulfilled all the needs that I require. I even find myself using 2 of them on stage recording and playback at a given notice. I am free to play anywhere on stage and with the remotes this is no problem. The only other thing I could have asked for is balanced in and out
