Stay away from this Turkey

 

I bought one of these units as the price was excellent and I really wanted to start recording on dics and move away from VHS. I was very impressed how the machine worked, the edit features, the quality of the picture and various options for recording....

Easy to use as long as not broken.Several choices of recording Quality / Length

Non existent support.If it breaks - chuck it.

Not Worth the Hassle

 

I have to agree with some of the other reviews - I too had my automatic chapter settings not show up on discs, was frustrated by the 9 character limit on titles (not even enough to say "1/2005-4/2006"), and was annoyed by the inability to read titles...

Multiple audio/video options, easy to get live technical support.

Poor documentation, 9 character title limit, somewhat clunky interface, some features not guaranteed.

Black Friday Steal

 

I picked this up today, November 23, 2007 at PC Richard for $49 and have already recorded about 3 hours of video via the AV3 composite input in SP mode. The composite source video, which is being played from and was recorded on HI 8 media on an RCA...

Disc titling, auto chapter marking, straight forward interface.

No component in.

Breaking my own rule

 

I have a rule when it comes to electronics. Buy the best. Before buying anything I read a lot, browse a lot, research everything and consider all of the major brands. So how come I've got a Protron PD-DVR100 sitting under my ridiculously overpriced TV?...

All that you pay for and a little more. Good feature set.

S-L-O-W. No HDMI.

Remote Is a Pain in the A**

 

I rather fancy this recorder except that the remote as One person stated Doesn't respond well. And my guess after taking one of these apart was that the circuit board doesn't fasten in very well. I put some (what they call space age foam I guess). ...

Editing capabilities ; split titles ; erase RW unwanted titles

No Closed Caption.. Remote sucks

Records in both PAL and NTSC

 

Not a bad player. Bought it new for $48 plus shipping from ElectronicExpo.com. Neat function lets you record in NTSC and PAL -- depending on the source signal (I set another Prontron dvd player to output in PAL and was able to make a PAL recording of ...

Records in PAL and NTSC! 3 S-Video inputs! 3 hour recording speed.

Poor tuner signal, military time for the clock is annoying as all get out,

Pretty Darn Good

 

I purchased this recorder at Big Lots. It only writes on DVD plus RW, but who cares. Before this, I had a Cyberhome DVD plus RW recorder. It was a piece of junk. This one blows it away by far. I never heard of Protron, but I needed something to ...

Price, Price, Price.

Not dual format or have HD, but who cares?

It's worth more now that it ate my dvd...

 

It tests your patience.

Customer service, manual is useless, it eats dvd(when it opens)

Pro What!

 

During my usual casual browsing of HHGregg's web site I saw this model on sale for $69. This was just about a week after the latest DVD recorder I bought from Walmart - an RCA, which I kind of liked, but then I didn't, so just that I don't miss on ...

cheap, feature rich, decent playback and recording.

questionable reliability, ugly interface, stolen design.
