Summary: I got this for my 94 year old father because his vcr died. He has a large collection of operas and he likes to watch them. This device works just fine, not too fancy which would be beyond his capabilities at this time. The remote is pretty small and a bit difficult for him, otherwise this is a good buy especially for the money.
Summary: The price was great for a combo. We used it for about 4 months. The DVD player was noisy and eventually just stopped working and could no longer read the disk. We sent it back, thanks to the fact that we also purchased the warranty with it, it was pretty easy. Overstock has given me a credit and we'll try to find something that lasts longer. Overall not a bad deal considering the price but you'll want to get the warranty with it!
Summary: i really enjoy this product. i just needed something to play the kids movies on and occasionally one for us grown-ups. i am not savy technically and this was a breeze for me to set up and operate without any assistance. we have a lot of vhs tapes that i wanted to still be able to use w/o having to transfer them to dvd and this dvd plays all those scratched dvds great when our old player would skip and cut off.
Summary: These units are not capable of recording. They will play dvd's and vcrs but cannot be set up to go through the TV. I would not bother buying them. One of the units VCR door is stuck in the open position after one use.
