Pioneer DVR-640HS DVD recorder

 

Pioneer's latest entry into the crowded DVD recorder market stands out for its ease of use, overall performance and value. Plus it offers some unique features such as Divx AVI video playback and multi-media jukebox capabilities.

The shortcomings in the DVR-640H-S are fairly minor, and are compensated by the many unique features, such as its MP3/WMA "jukebox" feature, the photo gallery capability and Divx playback. As it is, in terms of functionality, ergonomics, picture...

Excellent DVD Recorder with HDD

 

Let me start out by saying that when I buy something as expensive as this, I research the heck out of it, and the Pioneer DVR-640-HS was not my first choice. I had actually chosen a Pansonic model that was a bit more expensive, but received better ...

One of the largest HDDs I've seen. Highly configurable.

No TV program listings. Limited functionality through the USB port.

A very good choice!

 

This review is about the Pioneer DVR-640H HDD 160Gig, I own it for a month. (Another good choice might be the Panasonic but it’s more expensive) I think this recorder is one of the best, I have three different DVD players from Pioneer, I think ...

Chase play, play dvd while you record on HDD, manual commercial skip

Title name problems, Do not play DivX from DVD-DL, some DivX will not have picture

Fantastic Recorder!

 

I bought the Pioneer 640H after much research and deliberation. This unit is a fantastic piece of work. With that said, you should be aware of its limitations, they may or may not be a problem for you, depending on your needs/expectations. 1) No HDMI ...

Great recorder - reasonable price

 

You get what you pay for ... a cliche I know, but in the world of DVD recorders, it's very true. This machine does almost everything you can think of: 1) Records TV programs onto it's hard drive (for future editing) or directly onto a DVD disks. 2) ...

Many recording options, from DVD disk type to copying and editing on hard drive

Set up and understanding info contained in manual slow process

Awesome DVD Recorder!

 

This is an awesome dvd recorder! It works very much like a regular VCR, which is exactly what I wanted. Thankfully Pioneer decided to do away with the TV Guide feature, which was supposed to be awful on the older models. This unit is fast, quiet and ...

Huge HDD, fast dvd copy, quiet, good user manual, affordable, commercial skip, chase play

No DV input, title name problems, bad remote design

Some very good features, plus some major flaws

 

Good size hard drive, Easy Timer is simple. Previous experience with Pioneer has been reliable.

Major: missing firewire connection, remote cannot be programmed to control TV. Jukebox feature is useless.
