I bought this DVD recorder a year ago and, overall, I like it and it has done what I need it to do so far. Recording is easy, but you do have options to customize. Playback is good, and I love the fact that it can "upscale" the resolution - great for playing regular DVDs on today's 16:9 flatscreens. I love its design, size and appearance. I also appreciate its high quality recording and reproduction, which is probably the most important factor when rating the overall product. A couple of areas where it could be better: its speed - it works at a slower pace than others I've used in the past. Also its remote control - it is not a particularly good design for a human hand. Lastly, both the remote and the menus are not particularly intuitive - for example, writing the title for a recently recorded disc is much more cumbersome than it should be. I also wish you could create chapters at any point in the recording, as opposed to predetermined time intervals. But from what I have seen this is not a function that most consumer DVD recorders offer, anyway.
