Summary: I thought of buying a DVD recorder with a hard drive but they are more expensive. This unit fits my needs and pocketbook. Will be ordering another one soon!
Pros: Has worked great burning all types of DVDs. Burned some movies with firewire from digital camcorder, also burned movies from older analog camcorder to DVD. All of them came out flawless! The only mistakes made was by myself due to lack of experience. Oh well, DVD-Rs are cheap! This is a great DVD...
Summary: COAXIL input/output is deceiving. It acts as a bypass only!!!!!!! You can not operate the DVD recorder menus using these inputs/outputs. YOU HAVE TO USE A VIDEO OUTPUT OR SOMETHINGS OTHER THAN COAX TO USE THE DVD MENUES/TIMER/FUNCTIONS.
Pros: There are a few areas that are nice. 1. The timer allows you to set the frequency of how often you would like to record the show. All of my favorites are now constantly being recorded, like a Tivo. 2. Many options and settings from video display to record speed. 3. Record speed range from 1 hour ...
Cons: Had some issues while watching the "arrested development" seasons on DVD. The screen would darken and flicker, like power loss. No other dvd's will do this. Installed new driver and did not fix problem.
Summary: I purchased this unit to convert some old VHS home movies to DVD and I could not be happier. I performs this function perfectly! It's simple to setup and easy to use. Also, the built in DV input port has made converting from my miniDV camera to DVD extremely easy. Highly recommended.
Pros: Plays every format I've tried, Very simple interface, Easiest way to convert VHS to DVD
Cons: Menu/Chapter editing could be better, but for the price who cares.
Pros: I LIKE IT! Easy set-up. Grabber button makes using very simple. Good reproduction, picture is very good. Nice price. As usual. Newegg does a good job.
Cons: Wish Newegg would go back to using Fed-Ex as preferred carrier as it takes UPS an extra day over what Fed-EX could do for me. Would be nice if the recorder could handle DVD-RAM discs but what to you want for the price?
