My old turntable did not survive a long-distance move, and I have preserved my top 100 or so LP's. The Sony was priced right and discounted for being repackaged. It arrived looking brand-new with factory package intact inside the Crutchfield box. Except for a minor problem with the instructions, it was easy to install. After hours of use, I can say it operates perfectly and earns a 5-star rating.

Sony USB turntable
from Salem, SC
The unit works, but not exactly as described. The hardware is ok. The software loaded easily, but it will not play through my computer's speakers. The instructions seem complete, even specifying my computer's software system, but the commands for the steps do not exist. I had to purchase a cheap amplifier to be able to hear what I was recording. Further, it took several tries before I got the hang of it. The recording does not start until several seconds after you start it, so I stepped on the music on my first few attempts. I recommend you find a unit that has built in speakers and instruction written by someone who has not only actually seen Windows 7 but speaks English.
True to other reviews

Simple, straightforward, gentle touch on the vinyl. Good player for listening to old albums but not for real audiophiles. That's ok with me for now.

The Sony PS-LX300USB came with a limited amount of parts which took about 20 minutes to set up. The sound is exactly what you'd expect of a record player.
It also came with Sony's Audio Tools, allowing you to record and enhance all of your records, which can be saved directly to your computer via the USB cable provided. Overall I am very happy with this product.
