Great product.

Mitchell S., Newegg
11 December 2006
  • Summary: People who complain about the disks not working on other dvd players just simply didn't read the manual about finalizing the disk.
  • Pros: Set this puppy up in ten minutes and was recording about 15 minutes after that.Have now recorded about 60 hours of shows from the tv.
  • Cons: No big deal but you need to know it only works with dvd-r/rw disks.

Great quality, has flaws

  • Summary: It's a really great recorder to use as a VCR, and looks really cool and easy to use... just have to remember to keep track of it's time clock, if yours does the same thing as mine. Also, you CAN play your disks in other players after you finalize, but mostly only when recording to DVD-V mode.
  • Pros: Has great recording quality on XP and SP modes. Looks exactly like my tv signal on XP and I can't tell the difference much on SP either. Looks really nice, too, and the menus look nice as well. I hardly needed the manual to use this recorder. Also, the remote feels nice in your hand and is easy t...
  • Cons: It has annoyed me very much that 1/4 of my brand new Sony DVD-RWs were rejected by the player for initialization because of errors, and I highly doubt it's the disks. Also, just as annoying is the fact it can not keep time. I don't know if anyone else experiences this, but mine creeps ahead 10 se...

Cheap and works great

LONG K., Newegg
11 November 2006
  • Summary: The recorded DVDs DOES work on other DVD players!! All you have to do in finalize it. I flipped through the menu and it seems that they only instruct the user to finalize for DVD-RW's.
  • Pros: Very cheap compared to other non-vcr recording options. The recorded quality is excellent. Has optical SPDIF out If you want a VCR but recorded in DVD's instead, this is perfect for you.
  • Cons: When you first turn on the machine, it takes 30 seconds to analyze the disc, which seems a bit slow. Needs to manually set time - no on screen TV guide. What can you expect? I got this for 100 bucks.

Sad but true

  • Summary: QC/Testing of Recertified equipment apparently non-exsistant. If had been tested properly, this defect would have been found. Not Infant Mortality since supposedly Recertified. Newegg RMA instant, their service as always is GREAT! Shipped back today, and will see how next one is.
  • Pros: Nice low profile, rf and av cable, manuals and remote included in my package. Easy setup.
  • Cons: Left audio channel DOA, right audio got very distorted after 4 min of operation. Didn't waste a DVD-R to see if it would record. NOT a shipping issue.

Like a Charm

Alan M., Newegg
23 August 2006
  • Summary: Love it.
  • Pros: This thing worked on the first try. Straight forward. Zooming through commercials is long over due. Looks sleek and sexy.
  • Cons: The other review on this product is wrong. That customer didn't finalize the dvd. Once it's finalized it works great. It worked on a different sony player and my computer.

No compatibility

Eric G., Newegg
28 July 2006
  • Summary: This was my second attempt at purchasing a DVD recorder. My first unit was Panasonic but the quality of the tuner was so poor it was unusable. Returned it for the R130. Whereas the Panasonic could right to any type of disk, the R130 is DVD-R/RW exclusively. No big deal.
  • Pros: Very good recording quality.
  • Cons: Disks unplayable on anything but itself.

  • Pros: Неплохой DVD-проигрыватель с функцией записи. Может увеличивать картинку. Может записать до 6 часов на один диск. Поставили запись на ночь - утром все готово.
  • Cons: Записывает только на минусовые болванки. Делайте запас!

Opinión Express sobre Samsung DVD R130

Dooyoo
23 June 2008
  • Summary: ES UN BUEN PRODUCTO, SE PUEDEN GRABAR SENCILLAMENTE LOS DVD'S, Y EL MENÚ DE NAVEGACIÓN DA MUCHAS OPCIONES, AUNQUE HE VISTO QUE A VECES CUANDO UNO TERMINA LA GRABACIÓN, ME HA PASADO QUE NO QUIERE RECONOCER LOS DISCOS RECIÉN GRABADOS, ME HA PASADO POCO, PERO CUANDO SUCEDE...
