A recorder full of features that aren't buried in menus


I happened upon the Sansui (not the good Sansui of many years ago, just Orion's sub-brand) VRDVD4005 combo recorder a few days ago at a thrift. Of course, the markings on the top cover noted that the DVD recorder section was non-functioning and the VCR...

IDE-based DVD recorder, dedicated controls on remote, a decent combo

Reliability, tedious menu interface, remote control, sluggish DVD load times

Programmed Obsolescence


Maybe I have lofty expectations, but a major malfunction after 3 or so years is unreasonable. I purchased this unit from a friend in early or middle of 2004. He had it for about a year. I made many recordings from VHS to DVD over the 2 years I had it. ...

Many discs finalized. Speed/quality flexibility.

Full DVD recording not possible after ~3 years. Wasted discs. No pause during dubbing.

Quality recording without the price


Play-back picture quality, thoroughly written documentation, flexibility in recording

DVD-RW disks harder to find more expensive than DVD+RW in my area.

Would never buy a Sansui product again!


Nice looking. Has a zoom feature that we found hard to find in other units.

DVD portion rarely works. Cannot record personal DVD to VHS.

The system is easy to operate and burns all brands.

You Won't Be Disappointed


I found this unit by accident while shopping for a DVD recorder. I hadn't seen a combo DVDR/VCR unit anywhere, and was somewhat surprised to see one at Sears. In light of the price of DVD-only recorders at the time, I decided to snag it. Several months...

Great price, great feature set, reliable.

Awkward manual, limited to DVD-R/RW and commercial DVD.
