Categories > DVD Recorders > Toshiba > TOSHIBA DVR620 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo with 1080p Upconversion

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Love It!
Pros: Great VCR
Great for dubbing
HDMI Output
Cons: Slow rewind on VHS
Cumbersome to name scenes on DVD with no keyboard
Other Thoughts: I bought this to copy my collection of VHS tapes to DVDs. It works great and plays back VHS tapes better than my other 3 VHS players from the 90's. Works great and very simple to use. It is a very powerful machine and I don't use 75% of its features but love it.

Categories > DVD Recorders > MAGNAVOX > Magnavox Home Theater DVD Recorder With 500GB Hard Drive - MDR535H Record up to 626 hours to HDD

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Magnavox 500GB Recorder
Pros: Very easy to use. Good tuner reception. Thick, very detailed user manual. Excellent recording quality at all recording quality settings. Doesn't seem to be a refurbished item at all.
Cons: Not a con, exactly...but I don't yet appreciate why it is always recording the channel you have tuned in even BEFORE you hit the Record Button. I haven't read the entire manual yet.
Other Thoughts: I have 4 other DVD +/- R and RAM disc recorders (Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba) which I use regularly. Only the Panasonic has the newer DTV tuner. This is my first recorder with a hard drive, and so far it is at least equal to my other four. I only hope it lasts as long as the others, 3 of which are 6 - 10 years old.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: Price is great for the features. The ability to set the record quility is a plus where some units only record in the broadcast quality which may take more storage space than you may have available. The ability to dub to DVD can be done in high speed if the recording quality doesn't need more space than the DVD has available. The unit can convert the quality down in order to fit on a DVD but the dub speed will take as long as the recording is.
Cons: The unit doesn't have a guide and is totally dependant on you having the clock set as acurately as possible to record the desired program or give it early start time and a long end time.
Other Thoughts: I now have 3 Magnavox DVRs which the oldest one was purchased in 2009. It has been working without any failures to date.

Cons: Has so many functons and it take time to learn what you need.

Categories > DVD Recorders > Toshiba > TOSHIBA DVR620 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo with 1080p Upconversion

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Good DVD/VCR combo
Pros: Looked like new. Easy to setup and ran right out of the box. The upconversion gives a sharper video on a big screen TV from a DVD or an external tuner than my previous DVD/VCR combo. Setup and Timer screens are similar to most units.
Cons: Doesn't have coaxial antenna connectors in back. Forces the use of RCA connectors from the external tuner which could have been used to connect to another device. Remote has an odd layout. Record button is a small button one up and one over from the lower right corner. The RCA cables included are thin gauge with the yellow video cable separate from the red and white combined audio cable. Minor issues overall.
Other Thoughts: A good bargain recorder. New units are too expensive for such well established technology.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 nice machine
Pros: Records and edits fine - works as advertised
Nice button layout
Remote easy to use
Cons: software kind of clunky but usable
am finding some issues with outside copyguard signal interference - some channels will blank out for a second or have giant pixels from the anti-dubbing efforts used by cable companies or certain channels or (not yet checked) copyguard stuff on dvds.
Doesn't play CDs or burn them - DVD only
Doesn't work with double-layer DVDs
Other Thoughts: This is a nice machine, huge HDD, but this is a no-frills machine - no fancy menus or editing effects, just straight-forward simple editing and recording of video/audio signals.

I would have liked some other features, like CD burning, but this works well enough for my simple needs.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good recorder priced right
Pros: Setup in minutes. Great HDMI output
Cons: SLOW to finalize
Other Thoughts: Considering that they (Toshiba) are about the only player left in DVD recorders you don't have much choice. But I think it was worth the money and easy to program..

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Reburb dvd/Hard Drive Recorder
Pros: Came packed well for a refurb unit. Fired right up. Set up was easy. DVR quality is great. With an antenna only setup I was looking for a unit with a built in tuner to record HD off air programming. This unit fit the bill perfectly. I use the second highest quality setting and can get 400 hrs of great quility video record time. You will need an HDMI connection to your TV to get the best picture.
Cons: Cannot play and record at the same time on DVR like some units can.
Other Thoughts: You always take a chance with refurb products. But I have had only had one lemon in 10 purchaces so far. I was able to fix it myself. The price advantage is worth the risk.

Categories > DVD Recorders > Sharp > SHARP DV-RW350U DVD Recorder & VCR Combo

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great little unit.
Pros: Does what it's designed to do.
Quiet and fairly straightforward in use,
and nice looking.
Cons: Is limited to 2x DVD-RW or 4x DVD-R discs only, as others have stated.
Those are getting harder to find.

The only problem has been its clock resets after a couple of days, now making it impossible to set long-term recording w/o rechecking that the clock is accurate.
Other Thoughts: As others have said, this is a nice combo -- I bought it elsewhere, also reconditioned about 10 years ago -- just as VCRs were disappearing from the shelves forever -- the next year they were gone.
It has served well. recording hundreds of discs @ different speeds, mostly DVD-RWs.
It also has an annoying habit of turning on its internal fan @ odd times, even when "off".

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Does what it Sopposed to do!
Pros: Came adequately packed in bubble wrap- in like new condition-
Complete manual (Not stapled or photocopied) and a
Quick start guide
I hooked mine up with a coax splitter with a separate cable to the TV and one to the 537 then HDMI for the TV input.
Works great this way. ( note I have unscrambled signal for basic programming from Mediacom - no cable box)).
No monthly fee is a plus over tevo.
Cons: A little tedious to program but easy enough!,
Other Thoughts: Great forum support at - avsforum.com/t/940657/magnavox-537-535-533-515-513-2160a-2160-2080-philips-3576-3575#post_12244086
