DeFECTIVE DVD & VCR

Brian K., Newegg
15 April 2007
  • Pros: NONE!
  • Cons: Avoid this product! There are design defaults that make it unreliable. I have tried multiple units to no avail. On the first unit, the DVD player would get play the introduction/menu of pre-recorded DVDs and the DVD would get jammed in the unit. On a second unit I had, VCR tapes would get stuck i...

User Review

Aaron M., Newegg
11 April 2007
  • Pros: Most of the functions are very basic. It is really easy to copy a VHS tape to DVD.
  • Cons: Some of the functions seem really hard to understand. Haven't figured out how to program a show and it be saved so you don't have to do it each week.

  • Summary: I have recorded all of my olf VHS tapes to DVD..2 tapes per dvd..I use LP mode b/c VHS isn't the greatest quality..LP is great...I use SP (2 hr mode) to record TV shows and the quality is amazing...I am going to start upconverting much more...this machine is great for it
  • Pros: this is the best dvd recorder you can get..i have the previous version that doesn't do DL DVDs but i still love it..DL dvds are too expensive right now anyways...the recording quality on LP (4 hr mode) is amazing
  • Cons: none..well..would be nice if it had HD capabilities..but that is far off..especially in this price range

A follow up... Awesome all around...

George C., Newegg
19 February 2007
  • Summary: A phenomenal unit overall. DVD's look great when recorded, VHS plays over component cables (I know a few combo units that don't play VHS except over composite only), and DVD movies are just perfect. I hope this unit will last for years to come.
  • Pros: The first review I wrote was because I expected a DVD recorder to playback what what discs it could record on. It's been a few months now, and this recorder by far records better than other people's DVD recorders from different brands.
  • Cons: On the remote that comes with the player, there's no eject button which is kind of odd. It really doesn't bother me because I've got the eject feature on my Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote.

Well... it plays... and plays well so far...

George C., Newegg

  • Summary: I originally purchased the Samsung VR330, and aesthetically it looks more elegant and appealing than this model. BUT, what pleases me is that this player will play recorded DVD's and backups. The Samsung could not.
  • Pros: It played some of my pre-recorded DVD-R's and a DVD+R DL flawlessly.
  • Cons: There isn't an eject button on the remote control. That's the only complaint I have. Because the TV input is S-Video, it won't play widescreen TV or HD channels utilizing the entire real estate of your HDTV screen. They all play in Letterbox mode.
