Not Professional Quality

 

After reading the reviews, I determined the Pioneer DVR-510H was the right DVD recorder for me. But the deck did not meet my expectations. This recorder works best for those wanting to copy video from a mini-DV camera with a Firewire port to a DVD. ...

A fine and easy-to-use digital recorder but not a top-notch player.

 

Easy-to-use, best feature-set for money, good appearance and built-quality, use of popular DVD standards, multi-system.

No simultaneous bilingual-recording to harddisk, NTSC/PAL manual selection, unsatisfactory photoviewer, composite/component-out quality should be better.

I bought this unit to replace my 12 years old Panasonic VCR which has served me for 4 Olympic Games ( but the most funny thing is that I didn't get the new DVR before the Athens Games but only after its closing :-) I wait the price cut for too long :-(...

The best DVR.

 

Easy editing, reasonable price, thin, quiet, good looking, fast recording, optimizes compression for space.

Doesn't have tivo, editing is great but Panasonic DMR-E80S is slightly better.

Purchased mine 4 weeks ago, and I've recommended to everyone from my engineers to my mother. Almost everything is perfect from the basic operation, the smoothest parts being the simultaneous record and playback. Video recording in the SP mode is of ...

Good user interface, simultaneous record play-back and auto titling

My wife finally bought a piece of electronics I like

 

This is one of my favorite xmas gifts I have ever received. I have been burning to DVD with my computer and a Haupaugge TV tuner card for a while now and though it works... it has not always been successful. The DVR510H has fixed that for me. First ...

Easy to use. Hard drive provides Tivo like play/record features.

Interface for setting up timer recordings could be a "little" better.

A Solid, Well-Designed DVD Recorder

 

The Pioneer DVR-510H is a relative newcomer to the standalone DVD recorder market and thus has had a good look at the competition. Its primary rivals, the Panasonic DMR-E100HS and the DMR-E80H, have already established a sound following among...

Excellent user interface, DV in/out, Good JPEG viewer, excellent recording quality

Accurate edit points mean no high-speed dub from HD to DVD.
