Almost perfect for what it does

Anonymous, Newegg
25 December 2007
  • Summary: This records in 4:3 format! Have seen Rob and others report it was recording in a zoomed, 16:9 format, however this is not currently the case. This was probably due to the TV they were watching it on, but the recorded DVD is definitely in a standard 4:3 format.
  • Pros: 100% dead simple! From pulling it out of the box, I was connected and recording a DVD in about 10 minutes. It even prevented recording, when there was no input signal. My Mom would have no problem using this.
  • Cons: No variable compression for tape length - has to be manually set before recording. A 1hr and 1 minute VHS would have to be recorded at a lower quality or using dual-layer media.

Works Great

Sandy K., Newegg

  • Pros: Does work as advertised. Very simple to operate. A jack of all trades. Standalone operation is great plus. Use it with PC works fine too.
  • Cons: Recording things in 16:9 format makes the aspect ratio on this seem a little weird. Everything is squished a bit vertically. A little pricey. The DVD slideshow it creates has somewhat poor in resolution.

Un masterizzatore multifunzione
