Pioneer DVR-310S

 

With an easy-to-use interface and a relatively cheap price, Pioneer's DVD recorder makes a compelling case to upgrade the home VCR.

Chase Play functionality ; Good inbuilt tuner

Only supports -R/-RW media

At $899, Pioneer's hard disk-less DVR-310S has a lot of competition in the DVD recording market, including the similarly priced DR4812W DVD recorder from LG. However, chase play is a handy function that gives the DVR-310S a definite edge.

Easy to use, good quality

Can't edit after recording.

Technically disappointing in certain ways

 

I bought one of these units to dub wedding videos from miniDV through a firewire cable into the Pioneer recorder. The problem is, while it claims that you have up to 32 levels of recording, it would never be as indicated. Generally, the faster the ...

Firewire input about 20% better than SVHS

random data transfer rate which drives me nuts

EXCELLENT UNIT!

 

Consumer review by:

Great unit - and at an excellent price!

 

Since nobody else has reviewed this unit (and after reading so many horror stories about other DVRs out there) I thought I'd do the honor. This is simply a great, great unit. The picture quality (with 32 settings available between the 2 and the 6-hour ...

May just be the best -R/-RW unit available at any price.

Difficulty in recording older source tapes. Cable-box record quality was a bit less-than-desired. Minor cons!

"Pioneer easy and reliable"

 

I find this to be a great DVD recorder. Less generic than philips I think it also boasts better quality and the ability to set bit rate .
