Summary: I haven't had a chance to toltally check it out. But what I have checked out works great. Easy to set up,and easy to use. there are a couple of things I would like to see in the next gen. like a timer for recording at later time.but thats just me.
Summary: I have not acutally use it yet.... but I did plug it in and I was not able to tell if the unit is on or off. I wish the light in front would change colors red for being off green for being on.
Summary: You know, for $60 dollars, this little unit does a very good job and does what it says. This is NOT the same quality as Tivo or a DVD recorder....BUT....this records and automatically saves as a MP4 Video file. The pictureis about VCR quality at the highest setting, which isnt too bad really. I watch playback on my 50 inch plasma tv and it's not really that bad. Plays very good on Ipod classic.
Summary: The Neuros Recorder 2 is a good product overall. The setup and learning curve was easy and quick. The only problem with the recorder is the 2 HR max record time. This becomes a problem when wanting to record anything longer then 2 hrs the recorder will stop and restart recording causing a gap in the movie and having two different files on you portable player. I have been to Neuros website and they say they can not fix the issue.
Summary: Purchased this item because we wanted a solid State (flash memory based) video recorder. We've got the Sandisk V recorder first but it was a cut out product and required firmware update. Sandisk's recorder ended up still being hard to use and unreliable. This one works as advertised. It is plug and play. Like the other reviewer said, the on screen control is easier to use and the preview of what's being recorded makes more sense.
Summary: After spending about 2 hours trying every possible combination of cords and TV's to get the Neuros to work. I give up. It doesn't work. There is no customer support, and the corporate phone number that came with my instructions is disconnected.
Summary: This recorder is great. It works well & does what it says it will do. The picture is not the greatest on my Sony PSP, but I'm not complaining. I record in the "Superfine" mode and it comes out good... but not nearly as good as when you purchase a movie or TV show on the PSP network and transfer it from the PS3 to the PSP. The on-screen menu is pretty bad - but at least there is one (unlike some cheaper recorders) and it works fine.
Summary: Gotta admit I was truly excited when the Neuros MPEG4 Video Recorder 2 finally arrived. I actually found more value in my Palm Treo 650 smartphone. Yes, I can now watch my favorite movies while be mobile. That when I found I hit one those solutions unresolved... Since I use SD cards for extended memory I needed to get a SD/MMC CF Adapter, very hard to find since most locate Computer Stores are no longer brick and mortar(I ordered one through Amazon as well).
Summary: I find this unit not very reliable for recording - the flimsy 1/8" connectors for A/V on the back cause video to come and go and I have to jiggle it to get a picture for recording - them sometime in the middle of recording it'll move just enough and leave me with a blank video screen with audio. OR I'll get the video channels but one of the audio channels will be off - just the left channel is recorded.
