Philips's stylish entry-level DVD

 

Dutch manufacturer Philips has always been known for distinctive styling, but its ultrasleek DVDR615 takes DVD-recorder design to a new level. External design, that is. Our reviewer found the unit's menus and remote control about as comprehensible as...

Extremely sleek look; above-average recording quality in four-hour mode; component-video and FireWire inputs.

Confusing menus; terrible remote; spotty DVD-R/RW playback compatibility.

This entry-level DVD recorder offers a FireWire input, but its confusing menus and useless remote will confound beginners.

Excellent DVD Recorder for the price

 

Just picked this unit up at Circuit City for $100 (with rebates) after a horrifying experience with a Coby DVR-R1100 unit. I bought it because it was a good name brand with all the inputs I wanted, for a good price. In three days, I've filled up four ...

Fair Value for Price, Could use more Options

 

I purchased this DVD recorder because I was looking for one that recorded to the universal DVD+ format and was told to keep away for now from the DVD- formats because they might go the way Beta went in the 80's. I chose this model because it not only ...

Price, format compatibility, Ease of Use

More Menu options would be nice
