Summary: This DVD recorder is esay to install and to easy to work. You could do both without really looking at the instructions; and if you need the instructions it is easy to follow. You may however, want to pay attention to the correct DVDs (blank recordeables) that will work with it. It has a lot of cool features that appeals to almost anyone. Worth the buy.
Summary: This refurbished machine works as expected, but was received with one hinge broken on the door covering the lesser-used controls. View the stars with care. I have no basis for comparison as this is the only DVD recorder I have used.
Summary: The order arrived timely as promised. This refurbished unit was in a factory fresh package. It was for a present. I have an identical unit and am pleased with it's features and performance. My main use is to record movies off TV. It is as easy to program as a VCR. I consider it to be an excellent value.
Summary: I am really amazed how easy this was to setup and the picture quality is as good as I have seen. The price at overstock.com made it an even better buy. Remember this was one of the top rated DVD recorders and I was willing to pay full price. Thankfully I found it at a real bargain. What more can I ask for?
