H & B DRX-430

The unit is very picky about which brands of recordable media it wants to record on, and if you manage to find a brand it likes, it will freeze in the middle or recording. Even worse, it will pretend it has recorded your program, but it has not! Do not...

Jvc Hi-fi Vcr/DVD Combo

I had the same problems as the first reviewer with my Jvc Hi-fi Vcr/DVD Combo. The DVDs started freezing up on the machine after just a few months use. I gave up and decided to buy a separate DVD player. I am still using the VCR to play videos but the...

Manhattan - Blu Ray

After 30 years, Manhattan is still a wonderful film. It's smart and serious, but still very funny. It's certainly not the best example of Blu-ray, but fans will appreciate this upgrade, despite its lack of special features.

Skyline Bluray

Skyline is unbelievably bad. It's so bad that you actually feel worse for the characters who don't die off early in the movie than for those who meet an early demise. The film seems to rely completely on special effects, but can't deliver enough to...

Iluv I1166

Back in 2009, the iLuv i1166 was a trendsetting device that was ahead of its time. But a lot has changed since then, and the device can’t help but fall into the shadow of the iPad and other touchscreen tablets with their slick interfaces. We also can’t...
