LongTerm Review 12 months

 

I feel like a mutt because I bought this POS for my wife as a Xmas gift and it has been nothing but a pain every time she wants to use it. To say that it functions 50% is probably accurate. We didnt use it much at all and I felt it was probably our ...

Inexpensive compared to other top name brands (when I looked at them)

Reliability Reliability Reliability.

Long Term Review - 1 Year

 

Works as advertised, generally a rock-solid performer.

Slow to perform some tasks, rare but annoying lock-ups.

Very disappointed

 

When it works, you can record onto DVD.

It can't handle even the basic function of playing a DVD.

Firmware Update Allows for use of 8x and 16x DVD-R's!

 

I've owned the Samsung DVDR120 for just under a year - bought it to record last year's Super Bowl. I'm a techie so setting the unit up wasn't that hard. For the past 11 months, I've been limited to using Fuji 4x DVD-R blanks that I had purchased from ...

Relatively easier to use compared to a PC's DVD burner. Inexpensive.

Can't fill out a 1040 or predict sports scores!

Samsung DVD recorder DVD-R120

 

When it worked it was easy for a dummy like me to operate.

The tuner made you believe you were not getting a clear signal.
