Excerpt: In 2.5 years of use this products needs a at least yearly " software update" I currently run the last version, and still the thing ends every recording session at its own choosen moment, resulting in " loading" on the screen. JVC has stopped production, because there is a heavy construction flaw in it and they cannot solve it ! Never buy this; You will regreet it!!!
Excerpt: At first I was very pleased with this product as the design is very good, it does not take up much space in terms of height and the blue light and opening mechanism of the DVD tray is a pretty nice touch. However, I found this DVD recorder to be quite difficult to set-up and to receive all the channels available to you (especially in Auto set-up mode) and is complicated if you are also trying to connect satellite receivers to the system as well.
Pros: Looks, DVD tray, ease - of use
Cons: Hard to install properly, inferior quality recordings
