DVR 1600 DVD Recorder

 

The CyberHome DVR1600 is measures just over 13.7 by 9 by 1.7 inches. And at a mere $115, it won't take a chunk out of your wallet, either.

We wouldn't recommend the DVR1600 for general use, but its low cost and small size make it adequate as a second recorder for light use. Just don't expect to be able to set up recordings quickly with the awkward remote

15 months not a problem

 

if you ever run into any problems with the display on the machine it's self just unplug it for a few seconds and it reboots and works just as good as new, have only had to do this twice in 15 months. not a big deal.

does what it says it will do, not fancy but a great deal for what it costs

little or none, there is a hiss but I record mostly sporting events so that is not that noticable

easy to install

Stopped working after just a few movies were played ; No contact through phones or e-mails ; no return to store ; it was a big & costly mistake

DO NOT BUY CYBERHOME!!!

 

NONE

The phone number for CyberHome has been disconnected ; There is no phone number listed on the web site ; I suggest you DO NOT BUY any cyberhome product. There is a high failure rate. Google with CyberHome as the search term

Save your money - DO NOT BUY THIS

 

I bought this to "tape" my wife's shows off the TV every week and this experience has been a dismal failure. I am starting to see this unit selling for $xx. Maybe the manufacturer is getting the hint - IT DOES NOT WORK.

is a more than adequate player - fully featured remote. Plays my downloaded avi's although this is not documented

have had problems burning DVD's from the start. Emailed support and they told me I wa susing the wrong media and software. I changed both with vary sporadic results. If all you want to do is transfer VHS tapes and then watch the output once, then maybe...

Piece of Junk

 

Even if it worked, the remote is a clunky piece of junk.

Inexpensive

Worked twice then it wouldn't read any DVD's at all. NON-EXISTENT CUSTOMER SUPPORT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK Stay away from this product

Slim design firmware upgradable

CyberHome CH-DVR1600 DVD Recorder

 

We'll see about longevity; Cyberhome products don't have the best reputation for holding up over the long haul. Hopefully, they're getting better.

This is a great little recorder with great features, some of which are undocumented. It appears that units with model #'s ending in MU1 can play divx encoded CDRs, and also record DVD-Rs (at least mine does) ; Picture quality in the first 4 record...

Remote is a little weak; need to point it right at the unit for best operation
