No problems here


It's a DVR/VCR cheap. New egg had it to me the next day, scary! They must have a mobile warehouse.

Gotta say for $70 and free S&H no complaints here, none yet anyway. Purchased 4 only checked out 2 of the 4 so far. If they continue to work for a MONTH like they have the first couple days, cant beat it. I am replacing all my VCRs, and the combo is...

The only con I have is the way they were shipped, wrapped in bubble wrap instead of the Styrofoam corner protectors that surely came packaged it, but no worries working fine

Reading the reviews on other store-site reviews will tell you all you need to know about this one. Beware! I've been on the lookout for one of these types of units and are still looking. It's not just the Magnavox name.

None whatsoever

Notorious for being troublesome to nonfunctioning

Awesome device


I purchased this unit for Christmas 2011 and immediately began to copy my VHS tapes over to DVD. Some tapes were 23 years old. Some videos of my kids would not show on my VHS player and I thought they were lost forever. But with this player / recorder,...

Records great! Plays Great! See EASTER EGGS in my review!


First, over-the-air HDTV WITH rabbit ears. Just connect the red/white/yellow cables into L1 video & L1 audio slots in the back WITH the same slots on the DTV converter box, connect coaxial cable between TV and DTV converter box, and connect a SECOND...

User Friendly, Reasonably Priced


Using the 120 minute DVD, I am able to transfer 3 VHS-C tapes (sometimes only 2) to a single disc.  It is easy to edit the discs, including, adding titles, dates,...
