Excerpt: I received this as a gift so can not comment on the price. I had a old vcr ( with no remote) and a dvd player that was falling apart. When I received this wasn't to sure if I really wanted it. But I hooked it up ( took awhile). I really like it. It saved me alot of room instead of two shelves I now have only one. It's easy to use, switches back and forth from vcr to dvd with no problems.I only have to complaints about this product. One there is no subtitles on vcr part.
Excerpt: This product has been in my posession for about three years now. I had a few problems with it just shutting off suddenly (no power surge or other issues, just randomly shut off) but besides that it is simple to use, easy to set up, and practical. We now use it in the kids playroom / family room, and the vcr gets used a lot because we have lots of children's films on vhs. The remote control is easy to hold and easy to understand.
Excerpt: I have three of these, and finally gave up and switched brands, especially after losing a few of my favorite video recordings. They are cheap, yes, and the dvd players seem to work okay, if you are just looking for a dvd player then this is fine, and will do, that is the only reason I still have three of them, if ever my two dvd players I have now should go out, I will have something to play dvd's on, or rather if I ever need a cable box, they are a good cable box for...
Excerpt: I'm sorry but this system is fully disposeable. It only lasts about 30 days and can't be returned after that. There is no viable support for this product. Believe me, we have been through at least 6 of these in the last 6 months. I might have wisened up and went with another brand but at the time this was the only model available locally and surely I thought sooner or later we get a good one. I was wrong. It's the VCR part that goes out.
Excerpt: I bought the Magnavox DV225MG9 at K-Mart on Sale for a really low price. It is great as I have both DVD's and plenty of old VHS tapes including family ones that were made in my Video Recorder. I have not had any problem with it and I have had it for 5 months. It is easy to use once you read the manual and learn how to operate all the buttons on the remote. I am a Blockbuster on-line member so we watch alot of DVD's and I have not had any problem playing them.
Excerpt: This is a great DVD and VCR player. It is so easy to use and switch between VCR and DVD mode. also, one great aspect of it is that even if you lose the clicker there is a button on the outside to switch modes. It also holds your place on the DVD even if you shut the DVD player off, which is a great concept. I've had it for 5 months and use it almost every day and it still works great.
Summary: It does tape on VHS but the playback is not good. Poor picture and barely or no sound records. The timer also does not work. I tried it several times. The DVD part seems to work fine. The Company I purchased from sent me a prepaid label to return and will replace or refund as my choice so very happy with that.
