Summary: I bought it to save all my VHS to DVD. It's simple to use. Mostly! When it works well it's easy and the quality is good. Drawbacks. There's a mini screen to see what you are recording or to check what you have recorded. But there's no fast forward so if your recording cut out and you want to know where it cut out, (See more below)you need to watch the whole recording on the small screen with no sound. Not very efficient!
Summary: This device was clearly created to copy bulk media from Sony cameras to DVD. Probably does that fine...I don't know since, like most people, that's not the exact hardware combination I have. I wanted to cheaply convert my large VHS library to DVD. Old movies and tv shows recorded in the VHS days. But this only works in the trivial case: if you have a <60 min recording you insert a blank DVD start playing, hit record, format the disk when you're done and voila...success.
Summary: Although this product probably works well in conjunction with Sony HD-cameras and most Digital Camera memory cards, to say it works with DVR's is inaccurate, as content is protected and NOT recordable. It does not rise to MPEG3 or higher, and cannot be used to make copies of legitimate DVD's. Really this product's only redeeming value is to dub VCR tapes and Sony HD cameras to DVD, all other functions can be done better and cheaper on a different platform.
Summary: Trabajo en el sector audiovisual y hace tiempo que no me decido... pero necesito un grabador DVD fácil de llevar y conectable por FireWire o almenos por RCA... pero no ternimo de creerme que este supuesto Modelo de Sony no tenga lo esencial...............................SALIDA PARA MONITOR--------------!!!!! ¿¿Acaso piensan en que la miniPantalla ya es suficiente o que con hacer productos MonoFuncionales ya cumplen su propósito tecnológico????
Pros: "Cualquier" vídeo a DVD en MPEG2 con un solo clic
