"This is the worst DVD/VHS I've ever owned"

stevecramer2, CNET
23 October 2010
  • Pros: None.Will it does power up.
  • Cons: Can't record anything it considers HD quality. Changing TV channels is an obsolete nightmare. First response is to jump to fast forward but it will stay set for a moment but jump back and forth and your never sure which channel it will settle on.

"Forget about it"

disapointed12, CNET
2 June 2010
  • Pros: Set up was somewhat easy
  • Cons: Digital tuning slow, moving up and down channels, unit would jump to wrong station then correct itself. No electronic program guide I could find. Gave up finding close captioning (I am deaf) button. Too flaky so returned it to store next day.
