Consumer review (newegg.com)

not bad

 

the blue light is bright, but there is a button oon the remote called dimmer that cuts it off

good picture quality, even for the lower bit rate settings ; time shifting with a dvd-rw or dvd-ram, is great if you don't have some type of pvr

the manual is badly orgianized, tells you about features but doesn't explain them well ; it doesn't like cheap disc

Great product!

 

I can't say enough good things about this recorder. I removed it from the box and was recording a show 5 minutes later.

Easy to use ; Multiple inputs ; Plenty of features ; Player is only spec'ed to play DVD-R but also has no problem playing DVD+R ; I haven't tried recording DVD+R yet ; Quality of manufacture seems very good

Blue LED that comes on when the power is on is too bright. I opened the case and disabled mine ; It's only available in silver. I would have prefered black

dvd

 

Have used toshiba products before and never been disappointed! Bought this after my vcr finally went to dust. Easy setup. Recording works well. Nice that it advised you that you have to format your dvd disc for recording. Crazy how some dvd+rw don't...

Good value for the money, durabillty questionable

 

I originally purchased this dvd recorder sometime in 2005 to replace an aging Koss that had started to exhibit playback problems. I also wanted something that would record. I've had this player now for three years or so and already it looks like ...

Good recording quality, even in slower modes (up to 12 hours)

Durability should be betterDVD-RW playback/record has never worked

GREAT MACHINE........if you know how to use it

 

I bought this recorder 1 month ago from an online retailer (customer return item) for $ 85....what a steal. What a great machine it is......since I have flawlessly recorded everything I desired, like old VHS movies, TV programs, recordings from DVR, ...

Great value, easy of use, great video quality, reliable, great features, writes on RAM

Can't write on CD-R and CD-RW

Great performance with reasonable price

 

Great value, quality video, ease of use.

Manual can be better organized but it is definitely not a show-stopper.

Great value, quality video, ease of use.

Manual can be better organized but it is definitely not a show-stopper.

Your money could be better spent...

 

I purchased the Toshiba DR4 to replace my Panasonic DMR-E55, because the E-55 cannot record to RW disks. I was tempted to write a scathing Epinions review of the DR-4 within hours of hooking it up and using it, but decided to try to get more familiar ...

Excellent picture quality, easy to schedule recordings, nice selection of menu templates.

Poorly written documentation, frequent disk read errors, max 6 hour record time.
