Don't waste your money.


I got this under the impression that Toshiba was a quality brand name. I know better now. This thing was entirely too difficult to use. It was heavy and bulky and only worked some of the time. Switching from DVD to VCR was hit or miss. Recording from...

None that I can think of

Toshiba D-VR600 - DVD recorder/ VCR combo


I am very happy with this product. If you need to view vhs tapes on an HDTV (HDMI) this product will fufill your needs. The simplicity of operation, and the ability to record was a bonus.

HDMI Interface, coaxial audio output, allows me to enjoy my vhs ("yes they still exist") achive with a decent to very good resolution on a HDTV.Dual recording capabilities

Took a few hours of playback (VHS) to get the auto tracking to align picture. DVD playback is marginal

It looks good until you plug it in

Constant crashes, slow response, illogical
