Excerpt: Funai HDR-B2735 DVD Recorder VCR Combi with 160GB HDD I bought one of these from Bestprice trading in Feb 2008. The first one that came made a loud noise from the VHS unit and it came up with error message `Cannot record on this disc` when trying to finalise some recordings. Bestprice were very responsive and immediately replaced the unit and refunded carriage.
Excerpt: This machine is a great idea, but several niggles keep it from being what it should be. The set-up is automatic, but then leaves you to sort out the ordering of channels manually with the remote. I bought this to transfer ageing tapes to DVD and this is where the real problems come in. It wont accept many DVD-RWs (probably about half are rejected for no apparent reason, and I have been using the recommended Maxell ones). And then there is the Macromedia `function`.
Excerpt: I bought this product around 14 months ago now, and it has always been great ever since I bought it. The HDD recordings are of fantastic quality, and the overall simplicity of the machine is great once you have set it up. However just recently it has being making funny noises, even when it is switched off. I rang technical support for the product at Funai but they couldnt solve the problem.
Excerpt: A top quality product, this does everything that I want it to. HD editing is perfect. 7 switchable record settings, even on the lowest the pic is good. The only thing missing is a freeview tuner. Top marks all around otherwise.....Get one!!
Excerpt: Hi the unit is very useful has ad removal and editing on hd, the quality of recording is good and there is 7 settings, I have had 3 from Argos on there quarantee this is no quibble and delivered to your door, in each case the dvd will not record.
Excerpt: The Funai HD-B2735 has proven to be a real find. Even on the SP setting, the picture quality on my HDD and DVD-RW recordings has been excellent. If you dont want to spend too much money, and you dont mind having something that looks like a top-loading vcr (circa 1985) sitting under your tv, Id really recommend it.
Excerpt: Prompt delivery Good value for money. Instruction book can be a little confusing. Thr fan at the back of the unit is on constantly when the machine is on and can be a little irritating. Still have not gor the hang of which channel to go to on the TV to get the HDD without putting the unit off and then on again. Every time you turn the unit on it has to load up. All things considered for the price it has everything that I want and would recommend it.
Excerpt: Bought this product off QVC ,worked great for 12 months apart for being very hit and miss over which disc`s it would record on. The first problem I had was when recording from video to DVD the final picture on the DVD started to jump about till it got to the stage you couldn`t see any picture. Then I started to have the same problems other reviewer`s have had the DVD wont record off the harddrive and I keep getting a message on my screen saying` Recording Error ..
