Pros: Picture quality is great at 1080p. Upscaling doesn't stick though, as you need to set it everytime you power it on. Now contrary to reviewer Turtletoe above, the RES button DOES exist. Yout just need to flip open the front panel cover.
Cons: Menu UI isn't user friendly. Recording is quite a hassle too.
Pros: hopefully will work like new when I get it back from shop
Cons: I purchased the LG recorder RC897T from Best Buy. I waited to set up past the 30 day warrenty on labor. The outputs for video and audio were defective and sent it back To LG which called me with est. of $85 to fix with parts covered by warrenty.
