Lite-On LVW-5005 review: Lite-On LVW-5005

 

Lite-On LVW-5005

Records on all four major DVD formats; FireWire connection for DV camcorder hookup; easy-to-use menu system; relatively inexpensive.

Cannot control cable or satellite boxes; so-so video playback quality; dull styling.

The Lite-On LVW-5005 provides no-frills DVD recording at an affordable price.

Lite-On LVW-5005 DVD Recorder

 

Lite-On bills the LVW-5005 as a practical all-in-one solution for both DVD recording and playback, but does it offers enough features to deliver upon the hype?

Low retail price, Simple interface, Multiple formats, SVCD support, Firewire port

Average playback

Lite-on LVW-5001

 

The LVW-5001 is the easiest and least expensive way to create DVDs from your digital camcorder.

Easier than a VCR, High Quality Recording, FireWire to DVD

Not as reliable as a VCR

The LVW-5005's real story is its painless multi-format magnanimity and relative ease of use. If pricing remains competitive, some additional features and refinements could make a future Lite-On DVD recorder the stepping stone of choice for a generation...

LiteOn LVW-5005 is already on the market at various prices between $260~320, which appears rational. But since the market of this kind of devices is growing rapidly, prices will be significantly lowered in not so distant future.
