Plain and simple recorder

  • Summary: Thought it doesn't have a digital tuner, it has plenty of features and options. One drawback was not being able record to double density disks. Other than that it's been pretty solid.

  • Summary: Very disappointed to find out that I can't set timer for multiple channels for this recorder..you have to leave the channel that you want to record in order to record the show.. then,, if you want to record different show, you need to turn on TV and change the channel....Manual instruction was horrible!!! so hard to understand how to use.. bad remote control...Very slow to start..

  • Summary: I tried a $150 Panasonic, and like this Philips much more. Very Easy to use. Good choice of recording speeds. The 2 Hour speed is actually 2hrs10min. Recording & Playback quality is great. The Disk Finalizing is Fast. All recordings I made on this unit are Compatiable with all the DVD players I tried. Only complaint is if you dont record on the entire dvd. It gives you an empty title on the DVD menu. Example - if you make a recording of Ninety Minutes.

  • Summary: Ok, everything about this is a great unit, I would have kept it in a heart beat. Looks good, didn't like the remote at all! Here is the but:I have a widescreen TV, HD satellite, the darn thing has HDMI output but it will only record in 4:3 aspect! Now why would anyone want to use that instead of 16:9 when you have all the HD on everything else?Here is the line from the manual: This unit cannot record images as aspect ratio of 16:9.

  • Summary: I already have a Liteon DVD recorder which has worked well for the past few years, but it's a bit picky with blank media. I therefore decided to try a recorder made by a different manufacturer, and believed Philips to be a reputable company. Upon receiving the unit, I was immediately struck by how clunky the setup and timer recording interfaces were compared with the Liteon. My first attempt at recording to a disc was to a Philips 4x DVD+RW.
