Several hard drive failures in half a year - Unacceptably poor quality
Dance Day and Night, Amazon
22 September 2006
Summary: Although I was delighted with this machine when I first purchased it (outstanding tuner, outstanding picture quality, powerful editing capabilities, lossless copies, outstanding remote, etc. etc.) my delight soon turned to great disappointment. The first DVR-640-HS I bought lasted 5 weeks before the hard drive failed. The replacement machine had its hard drive fail approximately 6 weeks later. The machine was sent for repairs.
