Have both VCR and DVD recording and playback options without the clutter. The versatile DVR620 takes the fuss out of saving your videotapes to DVD and enhances DVD picture quality to near HD with 1080p upconversion via HDMI.
This was a first: a VCR/DVD player -- with no input connector! That's right, no coax in/out; just a "digital coax in" [RCA plug] The only thing worse would have been to forget a power cord. Toshiba help line was no help; apparently, this was a "feature" not a bug ...
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Major design flaw!
Ive had the chance to use this now for a few weeks. It works pretty good but it seems to be lacking in some common functions of a player. There is no commercial skip on the vcr. Also you have to have a very direct and straight shot of the remote to the player for it to pick it up. I know this sounds weird but im talking about it being at same height off the floor straight at it or it wont work. The manual that came with it is kinda lacking. It would be good to have more info on what everything does and what all it is capable of.
Im just glad to have one that works at this point. The vcr/dvd combos are getting pretty hard to find.
Picture quality from tapes is very good! Dvd player works well but ive not recorded from this yet so i cant say how well it does.
I purchased this Toshiba DVD/VCR Recorder and had it sent to me in New Zealand - excellent delivery service in 3-4 days. As the unit did not have a TV Tuner, there was no way that I could use it for recording programmes from the TV.
As a DVD to VCR and VCR to DVD I would suggest that it would be suitable for that purpose.
I spoke to The Call Centre and, after explaining my problem, was put through to the Reurns Department at Overstock.
My return and subsequent refund from Overstock was handled in a very friendly and helpful manner with my repayment back to me within a week of the unit leaving my hands.
Definitely recommend Overstock.com - will certainly use their services again.
Thank you Overstock.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Image did not note No TV Tuner unfortunately
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Did not use it as it was not what I expected - no visible defects
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It looked like a good quality Toshiba product.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I did not know that this VCR/DVD could not record due to know built in tuner.....it is to late for me to return due to that I threw out the box it came in. Now the DVD part plays great clear etc. But the rest I have the problem will have to hunt to find something that will be able to record from my television. Buyer beware.
The remote "back" buttons ceased to function after about three months. When I call the Toshiba warranty number - I was told that they could not just ship a replacement remote - I needed to ship the entire unit back to them and then several weeks later they would send me a replacement. Do not buy electronics from overstock - you'll never be able to access the warranty if something goes wrong !
We like this product so well that we purchased a second unit less than 6 months after receiving the first one. We now had one in the family room as well as in our bedroom. The quality and performance of the product are awesome even the functions are easy to use. I would recommend this product to anyone especially if you still have VHS tapes. Best of all if you have family moments on VHS that you want and need to keep them ,then dubbing them on DVD is easy and fun
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? they looked the same
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes so far no problems
Please tell us about the quality of the product. A great product for the price and easy to use

A question asked on 8/28 2012 was if this unit recorded VHS to DVD. On 8/29 Overstock customer care replied:: "No, this player does not record VHS to DVD. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 29, 2012
But then on 28 January a question was asked if it could record from DVD to VHS AND from VHS to DVD and the Overstock customer care replied: "Yes, you can record a VHS to a DVD, but not the other way around". overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 30, 2013
So...one customer care person said it CAN record from VHS to DVD and the other said it CANNOT. Can you clarify which is the correct answer pleasezoeyneika on Jul 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
According to the manual and the device, you can dub either way (DVD to VHS and VHS to DVD). However, most retail DVDs are protected and you will not be able to break their security to dub them using this machine.villaflori on Jul 30, 2013
Hello, we sincerely apologize for the misinformation. This machine can dub DVD to VHS and VHS to DVD Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 30, 2013

OVERSTOCK: You are contradicting the other Overstock answers. WHICH IS IT - DOES THE DVD RECORD FROM THE VHS????? OR NOT?????karmah on Jul 19, 2014
Can I set this to record different channels while i'm gone? Can I record one thing but watch another?benitafcombs on Feb 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You can program to record but must use the TV Tuner to do so. You cannot record one program and watch another since it does not have a tuner built in.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 12, 2013
To clarify - does this unit have dubbing capabilities to transfer from VCR tapes to make DVDs copies?gingerjoy1977 on Nov 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Why do you say in your Q&A that the unit does NOT record VHS to DVD while the reviews talk about that very feature being a benefit? Perhaps I'm missing something. ALSO, does one need a separate tuner or can we plug directly into a TV, or must it be a cable box, which we have in another room? THanks in advance for your response. on Sep 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The product details state the maximum DVD recording time of 8 Hours. You can plug the unit directly into either a TV or a combination tuner and TV.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 6, 2012
