Burn more video faster and onto fewer DVDs

  • Excerpt: I bought this DVD recorder for my mother so she could enjoy almost twice as many videos and pictures before she needs to change DVDs thanks to the Philips DVDR 3380 supporting the great quality compressed DivX video format.
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Excerpt: Just installed one of these for a neighbour, looks nice, not physically oversized. Cabling took a bit of working out, not as straight forward as with some other makes I`ve done.

  • Excerpt: pros: compact and pleasing to the eye and rarely freezes. Plays dvd r rw+ r rw - cd r rw ect, infact almost anything. User friendly although remote is small and fiddly and no open/close button. Supports up to 6hrs recording time and is cheap.

  • Excerpt: Good player for DVD & CD, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR SKY BOX RECORDING USE. IT DOES NOT RECORD ANYTHING BUT TERRESTRIAL CHANNELS. No comment on recording quality available as reviewer has no terrestrial channels. We were mugged!

  • Excerpt: Well first off this is my first ever DVD recorder, so I knew I was in for a learning curve upon reading the instructions. I know the fundamentals of DVD authoring, but had to read the instructions nonetheless.

  • Excerpt: I have owned this unit for over a year and have not had a single problem like the ones reported here. To record from a Sky+ box you would do the same as with any other machine you want to record from. Press play on Sky, press record on the recorder.

  • Excerpt: The last comment is incorrect. The 3380 does record Sky from my Sky+. I couldn`t get it to work using the instructions in the Sky manual (i.e. using the `Copy` function). It worked fine using the recorder`s own controls i.e. monitoring the satellite channel or from the Sky+ hard disc recording.

  • Excerpt: Just bought DVDR3380 and also find it won`t record onto their own (philips DVD+RW) discs. Won`t erase, neither titles nor entire disc, philips DVD+RW (recorded previously on a Nordmende).As with 1st reviewer above, machine freezes if asked to erase. Gets to 98% and no further.

  • Excerpt: I bought this product on the 7th January, and everything was fine until I tried to use Philips DVD+RW disks. As soon as I try to select a Channel to record, the display on the unit shows `UPDATE`. This goes on for several minutes then the box freezes and I need to power off/on to get the disk out.
