Philips DVDR3320V


Good design and slim styling

Don't like the 20 seconds delay before you can do anything. A little too complex to operate. e.g trying to cancel a recording that is already in progress.

Philips DVDR3320V


Relatively cheap for combination recorder

Long warm-up period and very lengthy and uncertain DVD and VCR timer programming. Picture quality poor and impossible to sharpen or otherwise improve.
