"Safer and cheaper than sending tapes to a service."

SuzanneSeale, CNET
25 November 2013
  • Pros: Cheaper than sending them to a service. No fear of losing your tapes. Works with VCR AND Video 8 tapes (Services requires a minimum of each.) Can be used by family and friends. Can be sold after use for almost what you paid. Easy. No Computer Needed.
  • Cons: You have to watch it while recording because VCR tapes and Mini 8 tapes are longer than DVDs allow so you have to switch to another DVD midstream.

Simple & Super easy to use

M. A. Willis, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to transfer all my old VCR tapes and camcorder tapes of my daughter from years and years ago. I absolutely couldn't believe how easy it was to use. The LCD screen makes it really simple to see what you are recording. Not a lot of buttons to confuse a person. I've hook the VCR up to it and away it goes. I'll be glad when I'm all done with this project, but I 'll know all my memories are safely stored on DVDs. (So much cheaper than taking them to a camera shop!

Excellent for Video Transfers

mark twain "curly", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this Sony DVD recorder a few weeks ago to transfer 10 years of family VHS, 8mm video, and mini DV to DVD's so I could then use Adobe Premiere Elements for editing, etc. I'm about halfway through the conversion process, and it's going like a breeze. Out of about 40 DVD's burned I've only had one get rejected with a "cannot record" message. The resulting files on the DVD are chopped into 1GB MPEG files that are recognized when I add them to the Premiere editor.

Sony DVDirect

  • Summary: It works great when you play your video from a camcorder to create a DVD. Be aware that if you create a slideshow with photos (from your digital cameras card) it can take quite a few hours depending on the amount of pictures on your card.For example I made up a DVD containing 1600 images and it took about 6 hrs to complete. Great looking item with video display, very easy to set up and a small foot print.
