Toshiba RD-XV47


Fairly low cost for HDD,VCR & DVD

Colour of rermote control (black with grey printing) is difficult to read. Picture format (16.9) not compatible with television. No component output. Not generally impressed.

highly rated by WHICH

Fiendishly difficult to use - 100 page instruction book, can only record off SKY channel you're watching. Only use it to play DVDs -could do this for one tenth price.

Can play my videos again! Can transfer them to DVD to prolong life. Can record from TV on to hard drive - no need to have tapes or DVDs to hand. Seems (after instruction) relatively easy to operate.

Haven't yet found any!

Toshiba RD-XV47


Great all in one machine if you're not bothered about it having an analogue tuner (ie you have to hook up a freeview box or skybox to it and can't watch one digital channel while recording another) and although there are a lot of buttons on the remote...

Um, not much. Picture quality is probably better on other machines but it's good enough for me, especially given that a lot of stuff I'm dubbing from VHS isn't great quality anyway. The DVD player/recorder is also a little on the noisy side, it's more...

Excellent value for money but this was a replacement machine (the first one developed an hard drive problem).

Very Versatile, easy to operate, quality product.

Writing under the buttons of the handset hard to read,the letters don't stand out.

Excellent general machine which has great capabilities at this price level

Not easy to understand immediately, but given it's wealth of functions, that's forgiven
