These are pretty terrible, turntable motor produces variable speed so the record sounds awful, pick up is rubbish and speakers are just plain poor. Spend some extra £ and invest in a decent one if you are going back to vinyl

For most of that, I do agree, the sound produced is pretty terrible, and the needle is barely weighed down at all, but the motor in mine is fairly consistent.
cheap n cheerful ,maybe a good entry point for someone trying out the vinyl experience for the first time

cheap and cheerful yes, an entry point for newbies it isn't, as i wouldn't want my collection wrecked. i have vinyl that cost far more than this
I get your point buy you don't sound like my idea of a newbie
It's rubbish - but this is HUKD so it'll get hot!

" Unique suitcase design..." - really? Every bargain basement shop from B&M to The Range has piles of these with different brand names slapped on them for clearance. Many of them have Bluetooth too.
Got one for the Wife as she had a load of Bowie and Michael Jackson Vinyls. Plays them alright and sound is good. She is happy with it.
Prefer to play my vinyl though this,

Yep that's much more convenient
Given the fact that the "yoot" don't seem to have much experience with vinyl, I wonder how many realise the importance of a decent stylus? You can knacker your precious records pretty quickly. When I were a lad a decent stylus cost almost as much as this turntable does today. Cant believe prices have cone down by literally hundreds of percent. I would be wary.

This is not true but seems to be a story that has stuck. All but the lowest quality suitcase systems are no worse than the old Amstrad and Saisho systems that 90% of people had back in the 80's or the Dansette record players of the 50's and 60's. Those cheap as chips needles did not damage records then or now. You pay the extra with high end stuff for fidelity and quality of sound reproduction not to stop albums having the grooves destroyed. My old Sanyo system from my youth never harmed my records and they still play well on my later bought higher quality Sansui system.
If this is used to play any of the autotuned banality that clogs up the singles chart it's probably the stylus that will give up. I suppose it could be used to see if your vinyl is warped.
Better to buy an old Pioneer belt drive deck (PL-112) in good condition and pair with an Ortofon OM5 cartridge/stylus. First step into decent quality hifi.

Queue the usual "This will destroy your vinyl " claim, and then somebody giving an alternative that costs 10x the amount.
