Philips DVDR600VR review


Philips's latest DVD/VHS recorder proves that you can't judge an A/V component by its cover. This deck's slick, mirrored faceplate and silver accents bring a certain amount of style to the homely ranks of VHS decks for the first time in years, but we...

Attractive styling; component-video and FireWire inputs; can play VHS tapes over the component-video output; decent DVD editing options.

Poorly designed remote; confusing menus; lower-quality VCR-to-DVD dubbing; audible fan noise.

Despite a few nice features, the Philips DVDR600VR's difficult interface and below-average video quality keep it from competing well.

My Philips DVDR600VR works great


You can save precious memories on VHS tape to sturdier DVD media.

You'll need a remote for TV,DVD unit and Cable or Satellite box.
