Sony RDR-VXD655

 

Plenty of features and an easy to use system make the Sony RDR-VXD655 worthy of a recommendation for anyone.

Consumer review by:

Don't waste the extra money!

 

Decent system but has some problems for people who have to use antenna's. You have to turn your antenna to get your stations on tv but with this unit you can not just add the channels if they are digitial. You have to rescan for digitial and in the...

Can't think of any

Each time you move antenna you have to rescan the unit then you lose all previously saved channels

Worse mistake I have ever made on line

 

Buy something else I ended up with a LG RC897T. Much better unit.

Looks good

Wouldn't scan any OTA channels. Wrong remote. "none in system" $35 shipping, $38 return shipping. Sony said on RMA "changed his mind" I'll never buy another Sony product

Problems when trying to copy my old VHS tapes to DVD, not what I had expected

 

First off, dont think you can connect this Sony DVD/VHS recorder the same way you could as with your old VHS recorder using the RF out to TV. The antenna in/out will work but the DVD and VHS output will not.

Good for playing/recording good quality VHS tapes, playing DVD's

Poor when coping VHS tapes with tracking problems or recording live "on-air" to DVD

Consumer review by:

OK unit, but MAJOR DEFECT right out of the box.

 

I purchased this DVD recorder/VCR NEW, not open box or refurb, and was DEFECTIVE. The signal processor for the DVD player was defective. ANY DVD, whether burned by me or a purchased movie, showed "digital artifacts" in the picture--black dots, yellow...

Tuner, functions, upconversion

mine was DEFECTIVE (DVD signal processor), cannot record to DVD-RAMs, coax RF output does not seem functional

Old VHS Tapes to New DVDs in a Snap!

 

I got this unit free, using points I had accumulated on a credit card I had. I had a whole library of live performances on VHS that I have wanted to transfer to DVD for quite some time now. Originally, I had been using my MiniDV camcorder with the ...

Easy setup & use! HDMI output! Multi-disc format compatibility!

Bare minimum editing options.

I purchased this DVD recorder/VCR from B&H. Item was NEW, not open box or refurb, and was DEFECTIVE. The signal processor for the DVD player was defective. ANY DVD, whether burned by me or a purchased movie, showed "digital artifacts" in the ...
