  • Excerpt: The recorder recorded for about three months and then quit recording. It would not even play prerecorded discs, but came up with "disc error". Having seen the results others had with warranty problems, I decided to buy a Sony RDR-GX300 and have been using it for over two years with no problems at all. I can see why Philips quit making this model. Also, finding blank discs with speeds of less than 5x is getting to be very difficult.

Phillips DVDR70 recorder

runetune, Ciao
28 July 2007
  • Excerpt: We've had this machine for nearly 3 years now. Its not perfect, and it does have its own little niggles, but once you get used to them, overall its an excellent machine, and so far reliable so if you are looking for something and you come across one of these machines I would say its worth a look. First the best aspects of the recorder. Plenty of choice on recording times. From very high quality of an hour, through to up to 6 hours on a disc.
  • Pros: Very realiable, solid machine
  • Cons: One or Two niggles from slowness to not liking cheaper discs

DVDR 70 DONT BOTHER BUY ANOTHER BRAND

jmbrighto..., Ciao
15 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Over the years we have purchased many Philips products and have generally been pleased with them. When purchasing a DVD Recorder we naturally assumed we would be receiving a good quality product with the type of customer service support and back up associated with a branded product, we got that SO WRONG! We purchased the DVDR70 from a major high street retailer. We were in the process of moving so we did not use the recorder for three months.
  • Pros: NICE LOOK
  • Cons: malfunctions after a short time .  clunky operation and slow

Until I found the right cable...

pedromalv..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: Philips DVDR70 is a not so bad DVD recorder. I found it in one shop after reading some reviews at a excellent price and decided to buy it. The first thing that disappointed me on the recorder is the fact that the cables included with the package were afecting completely the quality of the image. I soon found that the cables were really bad. After changing them for my own cables the image returned to normal, without the blurry looks.
  • Pros: price, usability, sound
  • Cons: acessories included, hold times

Sorry Philps Not Impressed.

  • Excerpt: Every Xmas my wife and I tend to treat ourselves to one of the latest gadgets. We have owned a JVC DVD player for a few years now and thought it about time that we got a DVD recorder. I noticed that Tesco was selling a Philips DVDR70 for around £160, and then there was the points on our loyalty card, so we thought, why not? Philips has been around for many years now so we thought we were getting a good product. Unfortunately, we couldn't have been more wrong...
  • Pros: Good looks
  • Cons: 2 machines had faults  -  Philips could do with improving quality control !

  • Excerpt: We have just purchased one or these recordable Dvd players as we were very pleased with the previous Dvd players that we owned. We made our purchase for £249.99 which was £20 cheaper than most stores are advertising the machine for. The machine came with 1 scart socket and a remote control with batteries.

DVDR 70

xynerate, Ciao
26 December 2004
  • Excerpt: The DVDR 70 is an affordable product which does the job. It is also one of the best looking models out on the market (personal oppinion) First glance at the manual looks very daunting but once you have played around with the device you soon become used to the functions. The recorder is slow to switch on and does not always remember which channel you have told it to use for the scart socket.
  • Pros: Intergrates well with sky digibox by using the auto view feature
  • Cons: Slow to power

A Philips DVDR for only £180 - WOW!

fivish, Ciao
8 September 2004
  • Excerpt: I bought this DVDR last week to replace my Philips DVD player. The set up is quick. The instructions are of course rubbish on horrible re-cycled paper. But Philips can be e-mailed and they respond quite quickly. The only problem is with the Monitor/TV/DVD buttons. You really have no idea where you are! Apart from that the picture quality is superb. The timer function is almost identical to my Philips VCR as is the layout of the remote.
  • Pros: Cost only £180 and its a Philips
  • Cons: None .
