When you know you newegg

Roger K., Newegg
17 March 2011
  • Pros: I originally was going to buy what I thought was a Toshiba equivalent of this JVC JVC DR-MV150B, and almost did until I read a review that claimed the Toshiba did not have a tracking adjustment...which in my case was needed for VHS tapes recorded on an older VCR. Otherwise I could not adjust for ...
  • Cons: None yet. Hope for long and defect free operation.

DR-MV150B died just over 1 yr

Joel D., Newegg
4 January 2011
  • Summary: BUY A SQUARETRADE WARRANTY LIKE I DID AND YOU CAN REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE LIKE I WILL. I may get this again if I can find more good reviews as it has a lot of good things about it... I bought it when they first cam out.. :(
  • Pros: Many.. Upconversion, one-touch recording, HDMI & optical outputs
  • Cons: Mine may have been a dud when new but it was cumbersome to set up titles and chapters... I use Studio 10 / 11 etc. and this was very hard in comparison to that, although I know it is a PC format vs TV

Aswesome in a package

Stephen M., Newegg
2 December 2010
  • Summary: This unit impressed me enough that my media center has one along with my media convesion business having one. Will record to any media but a DL, but will record flawlessly to any other media you throw into it.
  • Pros: Straightforward for the most part, self explanatory for those tchnically challenged, records to all but DL media
  • Cons: Some items that are top menu on other units are a few layers down on this unit.

A Good Choice in a Shrinking Pool

Chuck H., Newegg
24 November 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent choice for anyone with a large VHS collection who wants to transfer their favorite old TV shows or home movies to DVD format without having to mess with a computer, and for anyone who does not have a DVR or other Tivo-like recorder for recording current programming and isn't...
  • Pros: I purchased this for my mother, who is not exactly tech-savvy and is still enamored of the VHS format, hoping to drag her into the 21st Century. Being unable to find a new VHS recorder with a tuner for her, and hoping to kill 2 birds with one stone, I chose this machine as the best one for the mo...
  • Cons: My only cons with this unit, and the reason I did not give it 5 eggs is that the programming and menu options are not as intuitive as they could be and the instructions could definitely be clearer in some places. I was able to help her, over the phone, by downloading the manual and reading it alo...

DVD/VHS Combo Recorder

DianaLee B., Newegg
3 October 2010
  • Summary: This was a replacement for an LG product that I had two of and did not make it past 2 years. Hope this one goes longer.
  • Pros: This player is quite to run and easy to program. This is a great price as I bought on at a store locally and cost over $100 more.
  • Cons: I wish the remote would adjust the sound volume, as I have to have the LG TV remote to change volume...Also the addition of automatic clock set and daylight savings feature would be nice. However, that is not worth additional cost.

Thank you can I get another

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: This machine is awsome, I'm thinking of buying another one and turning in my rented DVR in to my cable provider. I hooked it up and ran throught the auto channel setup and it found all the basic cable channels as well as all of my local area broadcasted HD channels.

Awesome product

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: Have not put this to the full test as yet but what I have so far is just great - a true upgrade from dvd recorders of previous years. Initializing tapes is simplified, finalizing to play in other recorders has been simplified. Dubbing was easy, as was one touch recording.
