Not worth Buying


I would not recommend this product to anyone.

The only pro would be the price if it worked. It powers up and that is it.

Passable -- not great


So far, it seems to behave well with DVD-R's (don't have any +R's). It is sometimes stubborn on -RW's. Closing the image doesn't always produce a valid closed image on -RW's (just starting to experiment with -R's). Note: if you watch part of a video,...

Very inexpensive -- it's only 1/3 the price of the Toshiba DVR620 (I'm not real keen on combo units anyway...). Looks pretty nice. Generally functions acceptably. Unlike my previous DVDR, you can chapter step forward (e.g. 5 minutes) on a disc that has...

Not Bad, Great Value


First purchase of this kind here and I think it was a very good deal for a refurbished unit. So far no troubles and it records very easy. Only thing, I wish you could use more characters in the titles but most recorders are like that. I would recommend...

run don't walk away


This is JUNK. I ordered one, it looked like it was packed by a 4 yr old. It lasted 2 weeks. Hence the 30 day warranty. Returned it and got another. How much chance that 2 would be junk? This one wouldn't get past the

Good Value


We experienced a few problems with the setup, but after finally figuring it out, we're very happy with how it works. Good value for money.
