this thing rocks

Christopher, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I think it's been discontinued. Too bad. I purchased on the recommendation of a friend, and have loved this product. You can read reviews from people much more savvy than I. But I do know this: if you have a high-res, 1080p camcorder, how else are you going to back up all your movies? if you copy to dvd, you lose resolution (it WILL compress the video and you lose resolution). I didn't want that: I paid more money for a high-res' camera for a reason.

Leo, Amazon

  • Summary: After 1.5 years the item crashed... Could not take out a disc. After moderate usage.... The disc brand was Optical Quantum. I burned 75 Optical Quantum disc. Not happy with the overall result beware or weigh expense vs other models. Risk to your reward per se.

Sony VBD-MA1

Rey Kangga, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Sony VBD-MA1 two years ago to use it for my brand new Professional Sony HXR-MC2000 high-definition camcorder. At first, works like a champ using a Sony blank 50gb blu ray. The quality of the video is outstanding (1080i). After using it for three months, it quit on me. The recorder keep saying "fail to record" I called the Sony service center in Texas and told me to send it back to them so they can look at it.

Never Misses!

Christopher Chretien, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: I have used other DVD burners (this is the first Blu-Ray burner I ever used), and on many occasions have encountered error conditions which turned the DVD I was burning into a coaster. Furthermore, I have "successfully" recorded DVDs using other units which were very temperamental about which Blu-Ray and DVD players could play them without sticking, skipping, or freezing up the player. Not this VBD-MA1!

Nice product, but some things you should know...

Leslie "BookGroupBooks", Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: In theory, you could burn your camcorder videos to disks for free using your computer and some software, but this requires a bit of tinkering - especially if your camcorder uses magnetic tape as opposed to digital medium such as a hard drive or flash memory. The beauty of this product is that you don't even need a computer. Some of the negative comments have to do with the fact that mini-DV downgrades HD video to SD in order to burn it onto a DVD.

Nice Little Machine

AV Tech, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: I use it every day and it's like a Timex. The only thing that I don't like about it is there is not an output such as a headphone jack to listen to what you are recording.

Fantastic Recorder with lower price.

Blu-ray Recorder, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: I have a Canon HD camcorder; The Sony VBD-MA1 DVDirect MA1 MultiFunction Blu-Ray Disc/DVD Recorder does not recognize my camcorder with the USB connection but it read and records HD videos on Blu-ray Disc and HD DVDs from the SD card recorded by the Canon. If you are looking for a fast, portable, and the best quality recordeing video, this is the best choice.

7 March 2012
  • Summary: When I ordered this, there was no remarks about mode you can work. Unfortunately if you have some PAL videos (tapes, dv, etc) you can NOT write those files to bd nor dvd. Just for your info!
