Excerpt: Tishiba DR-400 DVD Recorder Good product but difficult to set up, instructions are hard to follow. I like the results but the difficulty in getting there made it less enjoyable. After all the bother of the ser up the first one would not work so back to the retailer for a swap and now I can enjoy it, hopefully for many years.
Excerpt: When you get anything without spending cash, it's good. But when I traded some frequent flyer miles in for this dvd recorder, I did not expect it to look soo good or work so well. Satisfied? Let's just say that I went and got another one! 'nuff said!
Excerpt: I really like this recorder. Once the system was set up recording was easy with great quality. I found it simple to transfer old VHS tapes onto DVDs and also recorded directly onto DVDs from my DVR system.A couple of drawbacks: There is no tuner in the recorder so you have to have the TV on the channel you are recording. (You can turn the TV off while recording).
Excerpt: I have never owned a dvd-r before, and I am loving it. The Toshiba D-R400 is a great machine in that it is easy to use, the picture quality is great, you can add titles to your recordings, divide them by chapters if you chose, you can even display a slideshow of jpg images from your pc on your tv with this machine. I am really enjoying it. The only negative thing I can say, which is minor, is that the text on the remote doesn't show up very well in dim light.
Excerpt: I think this was a great but but not so sure if I would tell my friends to get this product. I had a hard time setting it up but I am also not very good at this sort of thing. I would have rather taken it straight out of the box and be able to plug it in and have it work. The player will play the dvd's and the pciture is nice (I know that has to do with the tv) but the system is nice. And once it is together it is easy to use. Very user friendly.
Excerpt: Since I bought this Toshiba D-R400 DVD player, I don't regret buying it a single bit, I love it! With this dvd player, by far is the best dvd player I've every own. It has excellent picture quality, and even in the extended play mode it does. Setup was short and simple unlike other dvd player where you may need to take a class to learn how to set it up, haha, well not this one. One of the most easiest to setup.
Excerpt: I have owned this dvd recorder for approximately three years now. It is still going strong. What I like about this player is that it's able to record and play dvds. It can play all types of dvd movies and it can record on dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, and dvd+rw discs. You get to choose whether you want to record the content in 1 hour, 2 hour, 4 hour, 6 hour, or 8 hour mode.
Excerpt: This DVD payer is all it says it is. Easy to set up and easy to use. Price was right and simple to find and buy. Plugged right into my sustem easily and now Icannwatch my movies again. Buy this, it's worth the money! The picture is clear and crisp with no jumping or skipping. Nancy peck--A Toshiba Lover!!
Summary: Ordered this item for Christmas from A company called Apc-Discs-Books. Boy was that A wrong move that I regretted doing. Product didn't work all I got was sound no picture. Then when I emailed seller they tried to say I was getting an attitude because I wanted A refund. So I contacted Amazon but that didn't help they acted like they didn't have much control over the matter even though I failed A claim. Lesson learned if something sounds too good to be true it parable is.
Summary: the Good: This is my second Home DVD recorder and I experienced no bugs in the operation of the Toshiba. The price at 140 is excellent for this quality. It reads any dvd from any recorder I've tried, including several which won't read on other players and recorders. It has excellent flexibility in editing, including a way to cut out unwanted segments of your program.
