Sony is the Best!

  • Summary: I purchased this unit 3 weeks ago. Worked flawlessly. I own several other Sony components and this fit perfectly. Since I had the need for an additional unit, I immediately purchased another one. This unit will work with any standard DVD except DVD-DL and will do 1080p. Great DVD recorder ay a great price!

  • Summary: Needed to archive my favorite TV shows on a more durable medium other than video tape(i.e. DVD). The Sony RDR-GX257 DVD Recorder/Player helped me achieve my objective. And better yet, I did it within budget.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Recording, Fast Setup, Reasonably priced, Simple Controls

  • Summary: I bought this DVR to use some last sony points before closing the acct. and waited past the return period to burn some shows.(or else it would be gone) the 1st 2 things I tried to burn wont work "Copyright protected" one was a recorded DVR cartoon, the other a move from another DVD player. was told by sony tech support, they said can usually only record shows with commercials. and nothing from Direct TV. my old panasonic never had this problem.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Won't record most shows
