Excellent piece of electronic equipment

 

I love my Zenith XB V243 DVD /VCR Combo drive because it includes both the DVD and VCR players so I didn't have to buy 2 separate units. I live in a small apartment so space is at a premium and this unit is compact enough to save a little space in my...

Good, crisp, sound & video, but problems with DVD Recording

 

The Zenith XB V243 DVD /VCR Combo drive is a good-looking DVD/VCR recorder that has great possiblities, but a few flaws. While the VCR side works perfectly, the DVD side is suspect. During recording, the (DVD) drive tends to, "freeze- up," if used...

With a lot of children's videotapes, a TV with only one set of composite inputs, the need to often tape shows for later viewing and the need to dub home-made DVDs onto VHS, we needed a combo player. Chose the Zenith due to user reviews at...

Composite, component and S-video outputs, fast tape wind, quiet

Bare bones VCR, auto time set doesn't

Too good to be true?

 

Update October 2004: I've had some frustration with the DVD player's compatibility. For the most part, commercial dvd's I've bought or rented have played well, some stuttering here and there, but I've had some issues with recorded dvd's that have ...

DVD or VHS? Have them both!

 

I got this DVD/VCR combo for my birthday back in September 2002, and I'm just getting around to reviewing it. Luckily, this means I've had plenty of time to test it out and explore it, so I'll break my review down into sections:
