Wish I had bought another product

 

It did play 95% of the DVDs I put in it.

Hard to use as a recorder and reports "disc error" on good discs.

Consumer review by:

Killer Static Shock

 

One click VCR to DVD recording.

Will not withstand even the slightest static shock. Difficult to operate.

Nightmare. Hard to use. Ate my VCR tape.

 

Great concept. Good brand name. Poor follow through.

Not up to JVC standards. You better be a techno wizzard.

DR-MV5S is well-featured but hard (for me) to use

 

Records and plays well. Good appearance and mechanical integrity.

I found the instructions to be hard to follow.
