1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable, badly designed

Pros: No offensive odor, tuner sensitivity is good.

Cons: Horribly unreliable, destroyed some disks during recording, slow channel changing, clunky controls, DVD drive can't be replaced with standard computer DVD writer.

Other Thoughts: 5 samples tried, 3 acted strangely in a week but became OK after power was unplugged for a minute. 1 replacement worked OK for months but then occasionally burned black holes or streaks into DVD-RW disks. Toshiba tech support didn't know anything outside the user manual, failed to deliver promised technical manual.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's OK

Pros: It works fine. No issues with overheating, re-recording DVDs. The slow channel changing isn't a problem since I have to use a cable box to change the channels.

Cons: Lettering on the remote should be much bolder. Light blue color on black is pretty meh. And the timer seems to lose it's memory every 3 weeks or so. It almost has too many choices when programming a recording.

Other Thoughts: If this thing dies before the extended warranty runs out I will have to really think about possibly getting a different brand instead.

2 out of 5 eggsAdequate but possibly unreliable

Pros: Sensitive but slow tuner, good picture quality at the 2 fastest recording speeds (1-2 hours maximum per disk), seems to record well even with low quality disks.

Cons: Timer recording for both recorders was very unreliable, as reviewer N/A said, but the problem was solved by resetting to factory defaults, unplugging the AC for a minute, and then resetting again. Timer recording has been 100% reliable ever since, in over 200 attempts.

Is there any way to record closed captions without having to see them on playback?

The tuner should be faster and allow sub channels to be skipped.

When watching TV or disk, the sound is turned off if a menu is brought up, such as to set up timer recording or change a setting like the aspect ratio. I haven't seen this drawback in a video recorder since the early 1980s.

The slowest 2-3 recording speeds give poor picture quality, even worse than VHS tape, but enabling the noise reduction (NR) filter (hit Display button) can improve it considerably.

Other Thoughts: Toshiba customer support was poor. They would not acknowledge that the timer recording problem existed ("You're the first person to mention it" - aren't we all always the first person?), nor would they let me speak to anybody with even basic technical qualifications. For example, one person suggested that broadcasters prevented programs from being recorded but couldn't explain why instant recording always worked if that was so. The only solution I was offered was to ship the unit to Massachusetts, at my expense, no matter how many times a repair required. And I was not guaranteed that any repair would actually work. Toshiba wouldn't even forward my communication to any technician or engineer.

It's sad that so many Japanese companies have gone downhill so much in customer service.

5 out of 5 eggsplays all

Pros: plays DIVX files. includes a digital tuner.

Cons: a little slow to load but considering all the possible formats it needs to check it's not bad at all.

Other Thoughts: i wanted a recorder that played DIVX files and had a digital tuner so that i could do PIP. this is about the best that i could find. in the 6 months that i've had it, it has performed perfectly.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Great playback, good price, easy to use, actually records anything from my cable box.

Cons: Doesn't recognize dual-layered discs and won't record or play dvds through coaxial hook-ups

Other Thoughts: Bought for my dad to record college football games (usually 3 hours w/ commercials) if it recorded to DL discs then it would get 5 eggs. Since it doesn't he has to stop recording every commercial break to fit the whole game on standard discs. The DL thing and not recording through coax brings it down an egg. WOULD EASILY RECOMMEND! Even thinking of buying myself 1.

oh yeah

5 out of 5 eggsToshiba DR570 DVD Player/Recorder With 1080p up conversion

Pros: Seems to be doing a good job burning some of the programs I've recorded on my DVR. The menu is a little involved, but take your time & read it over a few times and you will learn its functions. Very few products come with good clear instructions! (The Record Mode button that you press repeatedly to change recording qualities is located right next to the Record Mode and there instructions are confusing on that point) I like the feature that lets you put a Title to each segment you burn or record, plus many other bells & whistles. I had a Panasonic, but it was a piece of junk, it only lasted for about 50 recording then it completely died. I used to be a great fan of Panasonic products but lately I have had very poor results with them!

Cons: Everytime I burn a DVD from a recording the Player/Recorder has a very warm or almost overheating aroma coming from it....I hope that it is just because it is new....time will tell!

1 out of 5 eggsgreat, except for the timer

Pros: Digital reception is clear and locks in quickly. Manual is easy to read. All functions are easy to locate. Editing recorded material is a plus (think "commercial removal").

Cons: Nine times out of ten, when I set the unit to record a program using the timer, the unit will not record. Fresh media installed every time, program double-checked. gives error message of "program overlap" even if there is only one program. Unable to resolve problem.

Other Thoughts: I bought this unit because I was so pleased with the Toshiba HD-DVD player I bought a couple of years ago. I am very disappointed. Although the reception of the digital channels is clear and it plays DivX-encoded .avi files, I bought it to replace my aged VCR/DVD-R combo unit. I record shows when I'm not home to watch them, and this unit almost ALWAYS does not record. For me, the "cons" outweigh the "pros."
