Wish I'd bought this a long time ago.

  • Excerpt: This purchase started when I could not find a stand-alone VCR. Now, with this machine, I can convert most of my VHS tapes to DVD. This machine does a good job. It's fairly easy to use, but you have to read the instructions and make sure you have the right buttons pushed. The remote is simple to use and laid out in a standard format. It plays DVDs very well and upconverts to HD.

not as great as most Toshiba products

  • Excerpt: I thought a Toshiba brand unit would be outstanding. The VCR records and plays as does the DVD. I am still using VCR recording because I want to tape and re tape rather than save. I have had dual VCR/DVD but this is the first one that has stopped the DVD player when the VCR stops. It is really frustrating. Not only does the DVD player stop, it returns the DVD to the original menu so you have to search for where you were when it stopped.

VCR Doesn't Work

  • Excerpt: The unit worked fine when I purchased it, but after about a month I began having problems with the VCR deck.  When I load a VHS tape the unit shuts off, and the tape ejects.  You have to  re-load the tape five or six times before the machine accepts it and stops turning off.  And even if you are able to successfully load the tape you cannot use the fast forward and rewind functions.  I have to use another VCR player to rewind tapes.

  • Excerpt: I thought this was a great concept Toshiba VCR & DVD player and recorder, of course like all technical products they have come out with sometg bigger and better that out does it.  But besides that fact, now my VCR eats my tapes so i can only use the DVD.  Not so great especially considering that was the reason i bought the duo to begin with.  But it wasn't expensive but i think we only had it for like 6 months before this happened.

I was so disappointed!

  • Excerpt: I purchased a new Toshiba DVR610 VHS/DVD player/recorder, and was quite upset to have the store bought DVD jam in the DVD player on the first use. It started grinding, and refused to let go of it! When I called Toshiba Help assistance, They were good about telling me to return it to them for a fix or replacement, but it has been three days now, and have not gotten the shipping label, VIA EMAIL, from them so I CAN send it back.

Far superior to most other machines

  • Excerpt: Stand alone DVD recorder's have come down in price but so has much of the workmanship.  The Toshiba D-VR610 is still above the mark.  What is even more disturbing is that many DVD recorder manufacturer's are no longer installing fans to keep the unit cool.  This will surely cut down on the lifespan of your new investment., and if you or others leave the unit on (when inactive or not in use) the lifespan will be considerably shorter even more.

great for transferring vcr tapes to dvd's

  • Excerpt: I recently bought a Toshiba DVR610 machine to transfer VHS tapes to DVD.  While you must read the manual and flip back and forth a number of times to figure out how to complete things the first time, after that it is a breeze. Editing titles and adding chapter points is much easier after the first couple times.  My advice is to use cheapie DVD's the first couple of times, and make up your mnd that those are your practice ones.

The best HD reproduction thus far

  • Excerpt: I have owned many DVD recorders since 2002, and this particular unit is by far, the very best yet.  Toshiba has far exceeded many other recorders out there on the market with offering the sharpest, clear and crisp reproductions I have seen.  The EZ setup and navigation makes this unit and user a success.

Sharp Images, EZ Dubbing, HD playback very good

  • Excerpt: This is a far better DVD Combo Recorder than others. The Toshiba D-VR610 offers clear, crisp recordings with widescreen HD clarity. The Unit receives S-Video and RCA inputs and upconverts this via HDMI or Component outputs which delivers a very good reproduction. Can record from Cable Box,  Digital Converter Box or Satellite.  There is no built in tuner.
