Excerpt: We have owned this DVD recorder now for nerly a year. Apart from the disadvantages already mentioned, noisy when running and slow to start / stop it has proved to be an excellent machine. We have been able to easily update the firmware by downloading from the internet and it has a very easy to use "Guider" menu, you simply press the Guider button on the remote and are presented with an on-screen choice of options that are a step by step way to record / erase / play etc.
Pros: Works with most brands of DVD's - easy to use
Cons: Slow to start up and switch off - noisy running
Well featured DVD Video recorder at bargain price!

Excerpt: This is quite simply an oustanding bit of kit for the money. Not only does it record on BOTH DVD formats... It can also record on CD's as well. It will make video CD's or, if you ask it nicely, it will even work as an audio CD recorder and even plays and records mp3. Now that is what i call one box which does it all! Recording DVD's it even automatically adds a thumnail navigation menu automatically to allow you to skip through a reording without all the guesswork.
Pros: CDR/RW DVD + R/RW DVD - R/RW Audio & Video Recording and Multi region capable !
Cons: Boxy Boring styling . Can overheat if not ventilated properly
