Summary: THE PACKAGE ARRIVED IN MUCH LESS TIME THAN I EXPECTED COMPLETE WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AND MANUAL. THE REMOTE CONTROLLS EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE TV. QUALITY OF PICTURE AND SOUND IS EXCELLENT. I BOUGHT THIS TO CONVERT ALL MY VIDEOS TO DVD BUT HAVE NOT STARTED THAT YET. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS ITEM.
Summary: I was looking for a system for my wife to transfer 8 mm tapes to DVDs. It had to be simple, easy to use, and reasonably priced. I found a winner with this system by purchasing a re-furbished unit. The initial setup was uneventful. It has DVD and VHS copying that requires the touch of one button. The remote has several buttons and functions which makes it the most confusing items--so skip that for my wife.
Summary: This is a well-designed unit that combines a full-featured VHS deck with a DVD player/recorder. Dubbing in either direction is easy, and video quality is excellent. The remote control is well laid out as well. Yes, the programming screen has a bit of a learning curve, but this is minor compared to the feature set and overall performance. It even has DVD-RAM functionality in addition to the other common DVD formats.
Summary: This product contains a VSH player, a DVD player and also can copy from tape to DVD, DVD to tape or TV to either. The directions are a but difficult to understand, but the product works extremely well. It is worth the time it takes to learn how to use it.
Summary: I have used this product for a couple of weeks now and it works as advertised. No bugs or glitches to speak of yet. The only problem is that when recording to DVD, the picture is not as clear as I would have liked but it is acceptable. It's not as hard to work the remote as I thought it would be and recording from VHS to DVD is easier that expected. All in all, it's a good value for the price paid.
Summary: This dvd recorder/vcr player is a great buy. I was worried that it was labeled as "refurbished" but the product looked brand new. You have to read the manuel carefully, but it isn't impossible to figure out. Easy to use once you've got it set up. I've noticed a slight whirring noise when using the dvd player, but it's not a problem I'm worried about. I'm glad I bought this product.
Summary: I tried other newer DVD/VHS recorders however they would not record my programs off the DVR from satellite TV. This product is the best and the last 3 DVDRs I have owned have been Panasonic. It's great quality for an excellent price.
