5 out of 5 eggsGood 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..

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: No longer records after 7 months. THERE IS NO Warranty, Toshiba no longer supports DVD recorders. If I had realized there was not warranty, I wouldn't have purchased it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat DVD Recorder

Pros: Reliable; convenient controls; easy to operate

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This relatively inexpensive DVD recorder appears to be very well made, and hasn't buggered a blank yet. It's relatively simple to operate, and the controls are somewhat intuitive if you've used a dvd recorder before. If you haven't, the manual is easy to follow and understand. I particularly like the ability to control the tray from the remote, a feature that many of its competition have chosen to overlook. I plan to buy a second one for our other LED TV setup.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Put it Down when you Don't Know How to Operate Equipment.

Pros: I Still haven't had a Bad Disc from this DVD RECORDER. That is after over 300 Discs Recorded on. Drive still Works as Described. I am also an Electronics Tech and Computer Tech.

Cons: Read Below in Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I have read People put this DVD Recorder Down. They Say that there is NO DIGITAL OR ANY TUNER! Well if you had read the Details of what the Recorder has you would have seen that It Does NOT have any Tuners in it. Then they Need a Monitor to hook up to see what is Recorded. If you would have tested it you would have Known that you Needed a Monitor to see what you were Doing. Also I have heard that people are Saying that it takes 9 Minutes to Finish a Recording after you Push the Stop Button. If it takes your Recorder that Long then you Need to readjust the Quality of the Recording. I have never had it go over 1 1/2 Minutes. Then people have talked about having to FINALIZE the Disc to be able to Play it on another DVD Player. The Recorder will Record the Data onto the Disc. BUT to get it Capable of Playing onto a DVD Player you will have to do what is Called FINALIZE the disc. It puts the Lead in, Chapter Marks, Then the Lead out Marks for the Regular DVD Players to be able to Play it. Also when you Finalize a Disc the disc CAN'T BE RECORDED ON ANY MORE. So when you do it the Disc will be Complete. I have had 2 other DVD Recorders and they all have to do the Same things that I have Listed above to work. So when you get a DVD Recorder "" READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST "" then you won't be putting down a DVD Recorder when you Haven't had one before. I write this not to make people Mad but to Educate.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat HD upscale

Pros: Its recording feature is supposedly comparable with most forms of CD/DVD which is a plus. The HD upscaling of a typical DVD also worked as well my ps3

Cons: The reason I bought was so my dad could record his tv shows without a VCR but the video input for this DVDR has to go from the cable box to the player and we don't have a cable box so it could only play the DVD's. Also, the programming function seemed a little complicated (part of my job is playing with VCR's and DVD players). Of course, it might have been because we couldn't hook it up to a cable box

Other Thoughts: We ended up returning it because we couldn't with it but it is a good dvd player

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: I use 3 of these at the sports arena where I work to record sporting events in real time. We just load up the discs and start recording. After the game, stop recording and finalize. Have yet to burn a single coaster. Keep in mind, there is no tuner in this unit, and no hard drive. It just records live streamed video with audio in real time. And it does it very well. The finalizing time for a 3 hour video stream is about 4 minutes, disc pops out, all set! There may be pro units for 20 times the price that produce a better looking recording, but the discs I make are mainly for coaching and content to display on the scoreboard video walls, and frankly the playback looks pretty good to me.

Cons: Doesn't wash dishes

Other Thoughts: Extremely happy with these reliable units. Can't beat 'em for the money. Some reviewers bashed these units because they don't have a TV tuner, they don't claim to have a tuner! Please read the specs people.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for me.

Pros: Wrong feature set for me - I wouldn't be able to use it since it has no digital tuner. I can't give it a star because it has no use for me at all, but I wanted to provide some info that might resolve some of the problems people who this product fills a niche for them that might make their problems go away.

Cons: This should work fine for people that have cable or dish or whatever source other than FREE over the air broadcasts. Useless for me, because I refuse to pay 30 bucks a month for stuff I can watch on over the air broadcasts for free. WTH do manufacturers make stuff like this and ignore including a digital tuner? Are they so greedy that they not only want to make themselves wealthy but also cable providers? Are they partners or something?

Other Thoughts: If you're having trouble with the correct aspect ratio, you should set it to record in 480i or, if you have to, 480p. Anything higher will be screwy to get it to work right. If that resolution sounds low to you, that's what just about all standard definition DVDs that you buy in the store are, unless you buy Blu-Ray. Higher resolution is likely screwing up being able to finalize your dvd as well. If you can, record your stuff at 480i one time and see how crisp it is anyway. Most of my blue-ray discs are only slightly crisper than their standard def equivalents. I know this because sometime I rent both from netflis to see if there is a difference.

1 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected at all

Pros: It does make playable DVDs.

Cons: Everything else.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this as an 'in place' recorder to be used at high school sporting events. Camera direct into the DV jack, record to the DVD. Simple enough, but not really.

Once you push STOP, you then have to make sure you had a monitor hooked up, because to make the DVD playable, you have to finalize it, and you need a monitor to do that.

The next problem is the actual finalize procedure. for a 4 minute video, it took NINE MINUTES to finalize the DVD. How long would it be if I had 60 minutes?

The whole purpose was to be able to record these events and give them to coaches almost immediately for review, and you cannot do that.

The other issue is if you hook this up to record from a cable box, then picture does not record at the same screen aspect ratio as the original, no matter how you set the box up. I get a full widescreen signal, set the recorder to either 1080 or 720, and the picture is letterboxed at the top and bottom.

The only thing is does right is play DVDs.
