Yes and no.
They do what they say on the tin but ive got one and here are some of my issues with it:
1 - The sound quality can be very tinny - you may need to faff around with the software provided (if it lets you) or find some other software to improve the sound once you have made the mp3.
2 - The software may have a function to split the tracks but it just tries to find a gap in the sound - from my experience it ended up splitting a song in two and sometimes doesn't split at all.
3 - Its very time consuming.
4 - Unless its a song which is not available elsewhere (CD, download etc) its perhaps not a good idea - If you have a very high end set up with a really good turntable then vinyl will just sound poor.
But don't let me put you off
EDIT - ive no idea what they are like for just playing a record though - I only bought one to rip to mp3!
