Summary: I purchased this unit several years ago and has worked well until recently. I was unable to eject a DVD from the unit. After taking it all apart and taking the top off the DVD player I found that around the spindle there is a pad that has become sticky and every time a DVD is put in the recorder it jams and makes it unable to eject the disk. I have never had a problem with a CD or DVD unit like this. Obviously a bad design.
Summary: This product has performed well. The seller delivered it in fantastic time, great condition, with extra information. The recorder is easy to set, records clearly, and playback is great. The only issue I have is that it's supposed to record on DVD+R or DVD-R, but when I put in a balnk DVD-R, it appeared to be preparing the disc, only to later report that the disc was invalid. But it records on DVD+R just fine.
Summary: Seller stated item was new but there were scratches indicating usage - maybe not. Only problem is machine fails frequently to read discs(those recommended by mfg.) Keep getting "No Disc" error message.Very agravating. Once you get past above, it works great.
Summary: This recorder worked great when it was new but quit recognizing ANY discs about the time the warranty ended. I bought another model from LiteOn & it did the same thing! Their recorders only last until the warranty expires. then you have to replace them.
Summary: These Liteon 5005 DVD recorders are sensational.They make beautiful recordings as good as Sony's for a lot less money.You can update the firmware and they can be set to be REGION FREE allowing playbacks of DVD's from throughout the world.Very easy to use the guider button makes it a snap even if you never operated a dvd recorder before.
Summary: When I bought this unit,it seemed to offer the best performance for the money. It was new on the market, and there seemed to be more customer complaints on more expensive Sony and Toshiba units. It was cheaper, far easier to use, and produced better video quality than a terrible Phillips unit it replaced. As in other reviews, after a year or so, things started to go wrong.
Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift & was pleased in the beginning. Then the door wouldn't open using the remote or the front panel buttons. Customer service is a bad joke; they don't answer their 800 number. It took 2 hours of being on hold to find out there is no local service available,you have to send it in for repair. If you read other customer reviews, this unit is notorious for the door not opening.
Summary: You'll see another review where someone says the DVD laser simply stops working around 7 months if you keep the unit on. I didn't know this when I bought it. I kept it on, and sure enough, 7 months later it stopped working. Based on the reviews about the nighmare of dealing with their support and/or replacement equipment, I'm just going to cut my losses. Time to look for a well known name brand and purchase an extended warranty. Lesson learned. Don't buy this unit.
