This recorder is affordable and works well. Record quality for 2hr is good and 4hr mode is acceptable. I wouldn't go any longer than 4hr mode. For the price. this model has been great. I had a more expensive panasonic before that had a little better picture quality and functions, but it had so many problems and defects, I was glad when it finally died.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Image is correct
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? I have not found any defects
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good
I've had the recorder for over a month now and wanted to use it for a bit before reviewing. Like others I found the manual pretty much useless. Had I not had the experience of using/setting up a prior DVD recorder I would have been pretty lost. I"m not a tech genius but I'm also not a total idiot either!! The player itself works well. I like the quality it gives on transfreing older tapes onto DVD. Have actually been very impressed with that feature. Its response is somewhat slow to the remote but overall I would get another one if need be. I do HATE the remote howver. The buttons are very small and the print even smaller. This unit has many more functions on it then I need so there is alot that I don't even use (and havne't been able to figure out from the manual!!) but that is probably my biggest complaint. They really need to make the manual much more user friendly and the print on the remote a brigher color so that you can read what the buttons are!
