Buggy Buggy Buggy!


Copies home VHS videos to DVD easily w/ good quality.

All other features I wanted either didn’t work or not well.

Not the best DVR


I would not recommend this product for this brand. I have a TV of this brand that is the best HDTV I have ever used. That is why I purchased this item was because of the tv I bought being so awesome.

Has a lot of features. Higher quality than other brands with similar functionality

Will not record some over the air channels which I could with other DVRs. Remote does not handle other devices! Change changing is kinda slow, but I have seen worse

Toshiba D-VR650 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo


Maybe the functions we don't use are good.

Misidentifies digital over-the-air broadcasts as content-protected and will not record them. Timer function is terrible.

The versitility is worth it.


It's worth is because of the Versitility of the product. It has an RF and a Digital imput. RF's are harder to find on newer products. I like the fact you can move vcr memories to disks. I like Toshiba best for things like this.
