Toshiba DVD Recorder

 

I received this recorder as a gift about 6 months ago. With it's built-in TV tuner it is capable of direct off the air recording of antenna or cable channels. It also has enough direct inputs for satellite boxes, Video cameras and VCR's. It can record...

Very good quality records to 4 hrs. Wide variety of media. Built-in TV tuner

Tricky involved instructions. Very sensitive lens. Disc loads slow.

Loaded with features

Slow, long chapter pauses, poor warranty, cumbersome timeslip.
