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

Biggest Bang 4 D Dollar


We have a Blu-Ray (Samsung) but it is strictly proprietary and does not play other than Blu-Ray and some selected films. The purchase of this item offers the opportunity for us to view our old movies, including home filmed movies, and DVDs. So Far, So...
