Consumer review (epinions.com)

Died within a year and could not be fixed!

 

When it worked, accepted all formats, easy interface.

Terrible reliability history for many users. Inept service.

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Died with a $217+ repair bill

 

The unit was purchased from Best Buy on December 15, 2005 and given to me as a Christmas gift. The DVD side broke shortly after Christmas 2006. I returned it to Best Buy for repair. After an initial $39.62 diagnostic charge, I was told the parts alone ...

While functioning, the unit produced acceptable VHS to DVD copies.

The unit did not last and required an unrealistic repair cost.

The Last Model of DVD Player I'll Own

 

Multi-format DVD recording. Plays DIVX movies. Plays PAL

Pricey and can be hard to find in retail stores.

So far, so good

 

Multiple formats and played movies that I've downloaded in Divx perfectly.

None so far. I just hope it stays that way.

Excellent Performance - Feature Rich DVD/VHS player, recorder

 

With such mixed reviews about this combination VCR/DVD burner and player, I had concerns about purchasing the LRY 517, however this machine continues to exceed my demanding expectations. While there are still several operations that I have not yet ...

Easy to use, great value. Supports many formats, providing comfort about future decisions concerning standards.

None as of yet.
