I spent time researching on line to find a basic recorder. There were not very many "good" recorders without spending a lot. This one got good reviews so I gave it a try. Works great. Some people complained about the installation. Since I was removing a VCR that had finally failed I just matched the hook ups since it was very similar. I did have another person give me a hand. I basically bought this to replace an old VCR to record TV shows. It works great. I have used it for about 4 weeks and have no problems. I have not used the programming option, just push the record button each time for 30 minutes of recording. This is the same as the VCR. Recording in the 4 hour mode makes the quality of the picture a little less than desirable but I am fine with that so I can get more time on one CD. I have deleted and re-recorded without any trouble. I have also played rental CDs in the player. They work fine too except that they all show with the black bands at the top and bottom. I am guessing this is not a problem if you have the wide TV. I am still using an older version, waiting for it to die before buying a new one. Some people commented that the buttons on the remote are small. They are but like anything you get used to it and its not like I use it all day long. You do have to remember to change the TV to the correct mode (ATV1) to use the player. This is a bit of a nuisance because it takes 3 remotes (1 for the cable, 1 for the player, 1 for the TV), not a show stopper. All in all this works great for the money and avoids the expensive monthly fees for being able to record with TiVo or the like. This pays for itself quickly.

I ordered this player for my husband. He has been asking about a player for our room. The only player we had is in the kitchen and used by our grand kids. My son set it up for him and he just loved it. When we get a new TV for upstair, I may order another one.

No bells and whistles but this little DVD player is perfect for use on your second TV. I would like to have more options on my main TV set but we are using this one in a bedroom and it's perfect. The size makes it a good one for smaller areas. Nice and small.

It was a replacement for a different brand that had died after 3 years. Set up was easy. Working fine so far. Since I had been used to using a converter box [don't have cable] I just scanned for channels in my area and they came in fine. Would recommend purchase.

Bought as birthday present for friend. She needed a cd player...hers died. Also, had long given up her VCR because she thought she'd never use it again, but regretted it. (we tried to watch a movie that is only avail in VHS tape...yes, there are some) This was easy to hook up for her, and of course, with her old receiver and speakers to it, she uses it as a cd player, too! ( the DVD unit can be used for CD's). So, can't beat the price. She said it is very 'cool' looking.....like new electronic styling. Another great deal from the O!

by Staff Writer With the bevy of options and features now available in cell phones, it's easy to find one perfect for you. Before you begin searching for your next cell phone, take the time to think about what you need your phone to do. Below, you'll learn the best cell phone features. Camera: Cell phone cameras can be quite handy when you happen upon a special moment without a regular digital camera on hand. Most camera phones don't take very high-resolution (usually 1.3 megapixel) pictures, but there are some that top out over 3 megapixels. Some cell phone cameras even have small flashes. If you want a camera phone, find out if it comes with the cable and software to connect to your computer, so you don't have to spend extra for a separate program. Video: Usually, camera phones that play video will also record video. Some non-camera cell phones also play video. Look to see if you can transfer movies from your phone to your computer. Web browsing: Many cell phones let you connect to the Internet. Most use Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), which allows the phone to connect to pages specifically designed for cell phones. There are many phones with full browsers, however, that allow you to view regular Web pages. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to transfer data wirelessly between devices. Wireless cell phone headsets use this technology, and it can also be used to transfer pictures, ringtones and other data between two cell phones or between cell phones and computers. Games: There are cell phones out there that have been designed with the gamer in mind, allowing you to download games that would compare to those found on a personal gaming system. Office software: Most cell phones feature some sort of a calendar and alarm. You can set a wake-up alarm or you can make it alert you for your next appointment. Other phones allow you to make notes for each appointment. Some let you create documents that can be transferred to your computer's word processor or spreadsheet. MP3 player: More and more cell phones are also MP3 players. Check to see if you need special headphones for listening (and if they're included), and pay attention to the phone's memory capacity. Memory expansion: Some phones, usually video or MP3 player phones, feature memory card slots, so you can save pictures, music or other files on removable flash memory. Voice dialing: If you absolutely have to use your cell phone while driving, you'll want one with voice dialing. The phone recognizes the contact you speak and places the call, allowing you to keep your eyes where they belong: on the road. Buy Cell Phones Back to Guides Directory Buy Cell Phones
