Not a bad choice

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 December 2008
  • Summary: This is all I wanted for Christmas 2 years ago. Researched and thought this was the best buy in both quality and duribility. So I got it and have used it almost daily since then. Today, 2 years later it just quit; has no power at all. One issue I had with this recorder was it would not record some old VHS tapes that are copy protected. I was disappointed because I wanted to preserve these VHS tapes on DVD.

Top-quality DVD Recorder at a great low price!

  • Summary: It took me a few months to decide which DVD Recorder I would buy. Pioneer, of course, has an excellent name and their products are usually reliable and are top quality. I have DVD Players by Pioneer and also external DVD/CD recorders for my PC, so after much research I gave the 520H-S a shot. And I'm very satisfied -- everything worked right away: the hook up, the recording quality and all the features of this DVR are just excellent.

Not perfect -- but lots to be happy about

  • Summary: I've had the unit for about two weeks now, so am still exploring, but am happy with it so far, especially after the saga of purchase. Originally bought a Hitachi, discovered it wouldn't work without activating TIVO, then went through TWO Panasonic EH-85s without either one ever working right (tech support finally hypothesized that the factory got a bad batch of chips, installed them in consecutive units, and shipped a bad batch to the retailer).

I really like this product.

  • Summary: For many years, I have VCR taped all of our favorite television programs for later viewing. As juggling the different tapes is cumbersome and viewing quality ranges from acceptable to poor, I have been closely watching the DVD/HD recorders for some time as a replacement for VCR taping and to put all our family VHS tapes onto long-lasting DVD.

Pioneer DVR-520H DVD-Recor

mainberg_de, eBay.de
16 September 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe das Gerät Pioneer DVR- 520 H DVD-Recorder gekauft, weil ich schon das gleiche Gerät besitze und damit zufrieden bin. Ich hatte außerdem zusätzlich einen Pioneer DVR 440H-S und den hatte ich total aufgearbeitet. Da es im Geschäft keine Pioneer Geräte dieser Art mehr zu kaufen gibt, habe ich mich entschlossen, dieses Gerät bei ebay zu kaufen, da ich viel aufnehme und kopiere so kann ich dann beide Geräte benutzen ohne daß die DVD's gleich finalisiert werden...

  • Excerpt: Sortie DV. Plus aucun fabriquant ne propose cette fonction: permettre de rentrer directement dans l'ordinateur des vidéos en format DV. Le Pioneer DVR-520H est un des derniers a en être équipé.

DVD Recorder DVR 520H

udo1480, eBay.de
10 May 2009
  • Summary: Diese Gerätegeneration von Pioneer verfügt über eine sehr wichtige Ausstattung und zwar ein Firewire Ausgang. Damit ist man in der Lage digitale Aufnahme verlustfrei auf andere Digitalgeräte, wie Mini-DV, auf PC oder andere DVD Recorder problemlos digital zu überspielen. Alles was man auf der Festplatte hat, ist somit digital übertragbar und wieder, ebenfalls verlustfrei zurück auf Platte zu spielen um eine DVD zu erstellen.

Pioneer DVR-520H DVD-Recorder

speedy2299, eBay.de
20 June 2008
  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Gerät als "Defekt" gekauft, um es zu reparieren, dabei müßte ich feststellen das es mit der Service-Freundlichkeit nicht weit her ist. Denn ein defekt wie bei diesem Gerät (DVD-Laufwerk) ist extrem teuer, ausserdem kann man es nicht selbst wechseln, weil man ein spezielle Fernbedienung + Software benötigt. Mein Fazit daraus: Das Gerät mit seinen technischen Möglichkeiten ist nicht schlecht, aber wie in meinem Fall nur voll Funktionsfähig zu empfehlen.
