Satisfactory

I bought mine from argos. It had scanning head noise on playback. I took it back and it was exchanged. I used it for a while and then put it away for the winter. I used it in May on holiday in Italy. Guess what.. It has developed scanhead noise on playbackand it's out of warrenty. I wouldn't buy this model if I were you. If it did what it's advertised to do it would be ideal, and good value for money, but it doesn't.
