When you know you newegg


I originally was going to buy what I thought was a Toshiba equivalent of this JVC JVC DR-MV150B, and almost did until I read a review that claimed the Toshiba did not have a tracking adjustment...which in my case was needed for VHS tapes recorded on an...

None yet. Hope for long and defect free operation.

DR-MV150B died just over 1 yr


BUY A SQUARETRADE WARRANTY LIKE I DID AND YOU CAN REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE LIKE I WILL. I may get this again if I can find more good reviews as it has a lot of good things about it... I bought it when they first cam out.. :(

Many.. Upconversion, one-touch recording, HDMI & optical outputs

Mine may have been a dud when new but it was cumbersome to set up titles and chapters... I use Studio 10 / 11 etc. and this was very hard in comparison to that, although I know it is a PC format vs TV

Aswesome in a package


This unit impressed me enough that my media center has one along with my media convesion business having one. Will record to any media but a DL, but will record flawlessly to any other media you throw into it. Only thing it wont record to that a TiVO...

Straightforward for the most part, self explanatory for those tchnically challenged, records to all but DL media

Some items that are top menu on other units are a few layers down on this unit.

A Good Choice in a Shrinking Pool


This is an excellent choice for anyone with a large VHS collection who wants to transfer their favorite old TV shows or home movies to DVD format without having to mess with a computer, and for anyone who does not have a DVR or other Tivo-like recorder...

I purchased this for my mother, who is not exactly tech-savvy and is still enamored of the VHS format, hoping to drag her into the 21st Century. Being unable to find a new VHS recorder with a tuner for her, and hoping to kill 2 birds with one stone, I...

My only cons with this unit, and the reason I did not give it 5 eggs is that the programming and menu options are not as intuitive as they could be and the instructions could definitely be clearer in some places. I was able to help her, over the phone,...

DVD/VHS Combo Recorder


This was a replacement for an LG product that I had two of and did not make it past 2 years. Hope this one goes longer.

This player is quite to run and easy to program. This is a great price as I bought on at a store locally and cost over $100 more.

I wish the remote would adjust the sound volume, as I have to have the LG TV remote to change volume...Also the addition of automatic clock set and daylight savings feature would be nice. However, that is not worth additional cost.

Just what I wanted


I was looking for a replacement VCR/DVD player with digital tuner, and are they ever getting hard to find. I like to record tv, either while I'm watching another show, or while I'm away from home, as well as watch DVD movies. This is the product I...

Easy to use, set up and the instructions are clear simple and in English. It does everything I needed. Mostly bought to dub some of my old VHS to DVD, simple to do, just start it and leave it. Good value for the money

Not recommended


This product worked very well for me and did everything it was supposed to do for about 2 months, then it failed. Now it will not send a video signal to my TV, making it useless. I am surprised since I have owned many JVC products and this is the first...
