replacement

  • Summary: If you buy this machine, get the 2 year replacement. I didn't. I have had this model for 19 months. My third machine just broke down. It's the same problem each time. The VCR won't play. If you send it back, the charge will be $70.00 plus shipping.

Not Seeing the Reported High Ratings

Overstock
4 August 2008
  • Summary: I have had this unit for a little over a year. I had three VCR tapes from a European vacation taken several years ago. There were many gaps and parts that I wanted to edit out of each tape and wanted to reduced the three tapes to one DVD. While the copies I made from the conversion work well when I play them on the vr357, I find that they do not work on any other DVD player.

Great Recorder for Price

Overstock
30 July 2008
  • Summary: I've had this DVD recorder now for a few weeks and really like it. Both the VHS and DVD player and recorder functions work very well. I was able to pretty much plug it in and have it going in minutes. Unlike a lot of manuals that accompany products, this one seemed to be pretty easy to follow. So far, I have used the unit to copy VHS to DVD and recorded programs onto DVD as they were broadcast or utilized the timer recording function.

Converting Family Movies to DVD

Overstock
21 June 2008
  • Summary: Liked the product. It was everything previous reviewers had mentioned. I like the one button touch for copying if needed. The one problem I found though was selecting the right DVD format for copying, since there are so many to choose, and it's not clear which format is most universally accepted. I think a recommendation as specified in the documentation would be helpful. I immediately used this DVD recorder to transfer mini-DV recordings from my camcorder to DVD.

Hook up

Overstock
29 May 2008
  • Summary: When it was first hooked up i could not get audio on my recordings. I called my son and he checked the hook up with the manual and it appeared to be right, called Samsung Tech Rep and according to him hook up was correct. I still could not get any audio, do I called y cable provider and the rep told me I needed and connection to provide two more audio outlets. Now everything is perfect/ The manual does not show this hook up clearly.

Great product, especially for the price paid!

Overstock
28 May 2008
  • Summary: I've had this DVD recorder for about a month now and not a single complaint! I don't have my HDtv yet so I haven't had a chance to hook it up with the HDMI output to see the upconversion but on my CRT tv everything looks as good as can get and the sound is good. The ONLY thing I would say that isn't great is it took a little getting use to, to navigate with the remote but other than that it's a great product. I would recommend to anyone! Samsung is high quality!
