Great Unit

 

It stacks up with other units costing more.

My LiteOn came from a differant retailer but have used the unit and just love it. Has built in tuner so you can record and watch differant channels

Had to clean the laser once as it stop reading dvds but had to do this to all dvd units at sometime

Great for the Price

 

I bought this to replace an old "Cyberhome" DVD recorder (which had S-Video input), so I am going from one budget brand to another. I have this linked between my Dish DVR and the TV, so I can dump off stuff I want to keep when my DVR fills up...that's...

I give this 5 stars because of the bang for the buck aspect. For 4-9 bucks there isn't much else on the market even in the price range. It works well and does what it is supposed to do. It plays Divx movies too, so that's nice

For the price, I can't expect a lot of extras, but I was a little disappointed in the inputs. The only options are RF and composite video (the single yellow). No component in or even an S-Video in...but again for the price I guess I can't complain

Works Great!

 

It took a few minutes to figure out but so far this has been a great purchase. You can record just like a VCR. The image quality is excellent and you can record in multiple qualities to capture high quality (1 hr per disc) to lower quality (6 hr)....

I have been looking for an easy and affordable way to transfer 15 years of home videos to DVD for a long time. Considered a video capture card for my computer but never could get a straight answer on a good one unless I paid a ton of money and deal...

It will not copy my old VHS movies to DVD because of the copy right protection. Would have been nice to make copies because one by one my VCRs are dying

Awesome value for the money

 

Buy it!

This is absolutely the best DVD recorder deal currently going on the net. For a mere 49 bucks, you get a DVD recorder that compares to the $100 - $120 models selling in stores. Newegg shipped it out immediately and I had it in 3 days. Works awesome!...

I will buy another

 

I still use my Tivo 90% of the time, but this gives me more options to share a recording and my biggest thing is that I will transfer all my VHS over to DVD's...

no more need to run cables to pc or to have a tuner card. If you need to convert your video, just put the dvd in pc, convert it, erase dvd, and use again ; Works well as a normal dvd player also

So Far So Good

 

The main point I wanted to make was that everything came with this particular unit and it worked right out of the box. I'm pleased right now, but perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, or maybe it will only work for a short time. So far so good......

Newegg got the DVD Recorder here quickly. The box and contents were in excellent shape and all the items that were supposed to be in the box were in fact there. All the functions seem to work, all the lights come on, put batteries in the remote and it...

As most foreign product manuals go, this one could use a makeover as well, it's about 5 out of 10 on the scale. The on-screen setup menu and the Guider screen as they call it are pretty straight forward, but you'll need to wade through them 2 or 3...

Unit update

 

Buy the way, new egg rules!!!

This is an update to my initial review. I've been doing a LOT of recording using maxwell dvd-rw and have had excellent results. With one dics I've recored, erased, and recorded xxx times. The last being superbowl, go giants!!!! For the money this was...

nope,none, nill, noda, zilch, zero

Works for me!

 

I don't mind recertified. To me it means that it was gone over by a tech before it was packed. Thanks New Egg, for bringing a great deal to the table.

Took a chance on getting a unit with missing remote and power plug. Everything was included when I got it. I'm using it to archive 10 hours of raw footage shot on DV for a client of mine. Direct DV cam connection and control is very cool. Quality is...

A bit sluggish going between modes, but be patient. It is not a deal breaker at all

Nothing but the unit

 

The box came undamaged. That's about it

There was no power cable, no remote, no manual, no cables, no nothing. It will cost at least another $30-50 to order the additional parts to even make this unit functional. Lite-on support service is horrible so its better to find the remote/power...
