Magnavox NB500MG1F


I absolutely love the unit, got for 68 on clearance at wal-mart (aka the devil). It works like a dream and plays anything I put into it. No need for me to have all the bells and whistles since I do not have the internet at home, so this unit is all I...

Cheap to buy, easy to operate, firmware update 1.4 allows all audio to be output

Slow to load, does not have BD-live or streaming capabilites (if you need all this...)

Dvd side seems very good

Vhs side is horrid

I am disgusted with the unit. I call the number provided for help and they don't seem to know anymore than I do. I still cannot get the unit to record on the DVD or VCR. The only good thing is I can play DVD/VCRs that are recorded without any problem....
