Summary: I've only had this player for less than 2 hours and I am considering sending it back already. Very discouraging that I cannot get my old VHS tapes to DVD easily.
Pros: DVD and VHS in one deck. HDMI Output. Communicates with my other Sony devices when plugged into them.

Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Recording, Fast Setup, Simple Controls
Summary: This model is extremely easy to use. I was able to make a dvd copy of an old vhs tape in afew minutes by pressing a single button !! I purposely bought this product because it has no tuner, I am afraid of complicated products and this omission simplified the machine alot.
Pros: Easy to use, records as well as plays
Cons: Front panel DV and USB inputs only work with certain late model Sony products, other manufacturers products do not seem to be recognized.
