Summary: I had been looking to replace a Toshiba DVR which did a capable job of boosting a 720P picture to 1080i quite successfully. So, I looked for the term upconverting in specs. The Philips DVR I ordered from Amazon had noted this in its product description, but I sure don't see where there's any...
Summary: I have no complaints. I use this machine for the QAM tuner (picking up digital channels) and to burn DVDs of family miniDV tapes. Quality is excellent. I bought it brand new from Walmart for $138.00.
Summary: I bought this unit specifically because of the built in digital tuner. However, the tuner is so weak it could not receive a single channel. I have a converter box which pulls in all the digital channels available to me. Therefore, my antenna or my location is not to blame.
Summary: I've been reading other folks' reviews about this machine for some time. i have an analog TV that's about 20 years old. The picture tube still works fine so I'm reluctant to buy a new TV. Of course, now that the country has changed over to digital broadcasts I needed a DTV box.
Summary: I bought this recordered to replace a Panasonic that constantly locked up. During the 2 weeks that I've had the Phillips, its worked well although a bit slow to load a disc. The picture quality at the 4 hour mode is very good. Programming is very easy.
Summary: I got this product through a promotion, the price was good compare with its peer product. I was a Philip 3400 DVDR user, so this product is no stranger to me. I was upset to start with because I had to buy this one (DVDR3605) to get a dtv tuner.
Summary: It arrived externally damaged and it appeared that surely it wouldn't work, but your customer service waited until he opened the box and used it to see if it could be returned. It works! Five stars for your customer service. It was a gift.
