Nah, I like the datasette for its simplicity. I just don't see a reason for using it for loading stuff since there's several faster ways of doing it.

I had 3 faulty ones I got almost for free a little while ago that I just got around to fixing. They all had bad azimuth and needed cleaning of the head and wheel. One had a slipping belt and another had a bent eject pin. All three work great now. The one with the slipping belt had the azimuth screw almost completely out - I guess a previous owner might have tried to adjust his way out of the slipping belt, obviously without success.
