Summary: I really enjoyed this recorder when it worked. It eventually frustrated me so bad I took it back to the store as a defective unit.
Pros: Nice feature set.
Cons: The player was hard to get VCR tapes into. It wouldn't play them half of the time without ejecting and re-inserting. It was always HOT! The DVD record funtion usually included the process of unplugging the unit before it would return to normal operation or playback of DVD's.
Cons: The DVD recording process doesn't work sometimes, and the disc finalize often hangs but completes. There are a number of DVD controls that I don't like the way they are implemented, such as a zoom that is 100% or 200%; nothing inbetween normal and 100%
