Summary: It should be relatively simple. All I want to be able to do is to copy some of my old camcorder recordings to DVD. All I should need is a video player and a DVD recorder. If they could be combined into a single unit, so much the better. Of course, being me, I would have some additional requirements as well wouldn't I? I have a flat screen HD TV so an HDMI connection was also essential. I would also like to be able to play DVDs containing DiVX video.
Pros: HDMI and DiVX support
Cons: Unreliable and not particularly user-friendly
Excerpt: Wanted a DVD recorder with built-in Freeview, saw this and thought, "Wow! Has upscaling, USB port for flash drive reading, looks stylish, and cheap too!". This all may be true, but what I didn''t know until I got it home and set it up was how irritating it is to use! The menu system is very unresponsive, taking literally several seconds to respond to a simple ''down'' on the remote. As a result, it can take minutes to scroll down a few pages of the Program Guide.
Pros: Looks great DVD recording quality is excellent USB port for reading DivX movies Upscaling + HDMI port
Cons: User interface is slow Firmware hangs DVD playback distortion on PAL screens movie edit mode is too complex
Summary: Ce lecteur enregistreur est d'abord assez difficile à comprendre sa manipulation. On part dans tous les sens , il n'y a pas de menu principal. Sa compréhension de fonctionnement risque de déplaire à pas mal de monde. Côté technique: lecture des DVD fiable, mais enregistrement quelquefois truffé d'erreurs. Une prise USB bien pratique mais inutilisable pendant un enregistrement.
