BOUGHT THIS RECORDER A YEAR AGO TO...

Strengths: EASE OF USE AND COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER PLAYERS FOR PLAYBACK

Weakness: MANUAL DOESN'T TELL WHICH RECORDALBLE DISKS ARE COMPATIBLE.

BOUGHT THIS RECORDER A YEAR AGO TO SAVE ALL VHS I HAD FOR MY WIFE WHO PASSED AWAY. EASY TO COPY ONLY THOSE THINGS I WANTED TO AND THE QUALITY OF PICTURE AND SOUND WAS FINE. REMEMBER I WAS COPYING FROM HOME MADE TAPES WHICH WERE BOTH STANDARED AND COMPACT. SO FAR I HAVE MADE OVER 80 DVD'S. ONCE YOU GET STARTED YOU WANT TO COPY EVERYTHING YOU HAVE OF YOU FAMILY. ESPECALLY HOME MOVIES TRANSFERRED TO...

The recover code was not explained...

Strengths: Easy to use, dvd-r discs seem to be plentiful, despite what some reviewers say. I didn't have problems with khypermedia, samsung, tdk or compusa dvd-r blank media.

Weakness: Manual sometimes difficult to find specific topics. Had big problem when used type 2 cartridge dvd-ram. Door wouldn't open-just gave gave code recover then read then open than it shut down. returned

The recover code was not explained in manual. Took item
back and was given a dmr-e50 in exchange. will write
review on that when I've used it a while. Otherwise it
was an easy to operate recorder with great picture and
sound quality. The big problem was the door
getting stuck so easily after only 36 days of use.

I've had this for almost 6 months...

Strengths: Easy to use. Remarkable quality. Love the time skip feature. Great quality DVDs produced. AA++

Weakness: Pain in the neck rehooking all those pesky cable wires-- copyguard protection on some VHS tapes prevents conversion to DVD.

I've had this for almost 6 months now and I absolutely love it. It does everything it says it will and more. I had to respond after reading a review that said you have to buy expensive $20 DVD media to record and that you can't use coaxil cables-- I don't know what machine this guy is using but I'm well on my way to making disc #200 and I use coaxil cables AND ritek discs which cost about 40...

I agree with most of the above...

Strengths: Ease of Use, Stylish, Compact, Good connection variations, Time Slip Feature.

Weakness: Unfriendly Manual, Will not Record through Coaxial, Will not Record Copyright VHS, No Scene Selection (Picture).

I agree with most of the above reports I've read so far, This is Overall a great Unit! Picture quality is great, and many other features. I am just having a hard time not being able to record (Backup) many of my VHS tapes due to the Copyright protection. This annoyes me because I have around 275 VHS tapes I am trying to Preserve and 30% of them have copy protection I can't record on my Panasonic...

I purchase the unit thinking it...

Strengths: it looks nice

Weakness: DVD-R media comes from several sources. None of mine were compatible in any way shape or form for the unit.

I purchase the unit thinking it was a great find and an awesome price. Well get ready to spend $11.95 - $18.95 for the Panasonic media you will need to purchase to record it. Can't use Ritek, Verbatim, Sony or TDK. No only that but I got socked a 15% restocking charge from 6th Ave electronics. I just spent nearly a hundred dollars in shipping and restocking to find out that this item is lousy....
