1st one

 

Some channels have copyright signal and this DVD recorder will not record those channels.

Very simple to use and enough extras for a tech-junky. Works easy just like a VCR and has many of the same functions. Burned DVD off live TV. Havent tried VCR->DVD or DVD-VCR yet. Different modes to record off TV for DVD. XP mode for best quality or...

DVD-R/RAM only no +R. Bulky design

Reliable and Trustworthy.

 

I purchased my Toshiba dvd vcr player when I purchased my HDTV approximately two years ago. I am a huge movie buff with a collection of over 400 dvd's that are a huge part of my entertainment. This specific player gets used probably everyday for ...

Flawed Equipment

 

When it worked, picture and sound quality was always very good.

It was like playing roulette, never knew when it was going to mess up.

Solid performing in every way

 

Despite the above product description, this is the model and picture of the Toshiba D-VR4X VCR/DVD Recorder Combo, not just the DVD recorder. This is a quality unit in my opinion. I did not experience any of the errors that other reviewers described ...

Solid performing in every way

 

First, beware Epinion's overall star rating of a product doesn't necessarily reflect the actual average rating of all reviews of the product as appears to be the case here. This 5 star review inexplicable does not average into the overall star rating ...

BUYER BEWARE: Similar fatal problems with transferring & finalizing DVDs

 

Like ChrisJoker, I too have experienced fatal errors - twice now - with this unit during the simple transfer of basic (and uncopyproteced) video from VHS to DVD. The first error occurred during the "finalization" phase of the DVD-R, when I was met with...

Looks good, nice price, and fairly easy to use.

MAJOR internal problems that can all too often render this model completely inoperable.
