Nice features, when they work

David M., Newegg
8 March 2008
  • 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.

More bugs than a PC

  • Pros: Easy to use functions.
  • 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%

Don't like it.

  • Summary: We keep our DVD player out in the open, so it did not get hot due to lack of air movement around the unit.
  • Pros: It has a full set of features. TV Tuner, Copy VHS to DVD and vise-versa. Nice front panel connections.
  • Cons: It changes channels very slowly. It stopped working and smelled of hot electronics. Touched the right side of the unit and it was very hot.
