Blurry Screen

By Ronnie

from Texas

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.

Tascam CD-RW900SL CD Recorder

By Anthony

from Plano, TX

Great Product. I use one of these in each of our sanctuary's at my church. I have not had the blurry screen problem. CD quality mixes every time with no mistakes or blips. I never change the CD during service so if there is a noise issue it has never been noticed.


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.
