Cheap, but it works


While walking through a large store, I spotted this unit on an endcap for $99. I had seen the Emerson EWR20V4 in other stores. In one it was marketed as an Emerson. In another, it was branded Funai. In this store, it was called SV-2000. I didn't care ...

Not too bad, but I returned it


It's ashame that I had to take this back for another brand, a recorder by itself. There's only one main problem this Emerson DVD/VCR combo has. The picture and sound quality of VHS-to-DVD dubbing is like a perfect clone. When I first used it and ...

The VHS-to-DVD transfer is great...

But there's something wrong with it that's so very annoying!
