1 out of 5 eggsNot worth Buying

Pros: The only pro would be the price if it worked. It powers up and that is it.

Cons: The product is not worth buying, and return shipping cost is very high.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product to anyone.

2 out of 5 eggsPassable -- not great

Pros: Very inexpensive -- it's only 1/3 the price of the Toshiba DVR620 (I'm not real keen on combo units anyway...). Looks pretty nice. Generally functions acceptably.

Unlike my previous DVDR, you can chapter step forward (e.g. 5 minutes) on a disc that has not been closed.

And, of course, Newegg's usual speedy delivery!

Cons: Very clunky programming interface. Very limited features: no "fill disc" mode (i.e. variable mode, allowing best resolution for available run-time), no 8 hr SLP mode, only permits short text titles on videos (hardly enough to identify movie), and clunky text editing interface.

Gets "stuck" on "bad" discs -- had to pull the power on the unit several times, while formatting a stack of used DVD-RWs (and then had to reset the clock, as even a momentary disruption takes it out). Some of these discs were very new, so I doubt they were actually "bad".

Note: in some cases, if you wait 5 or 10 minutes it will time out -- in some cases, waiting a couple hours did not cause it to time out.

Other Thoughts: So far, it seems to behave well with DVD-R's (don't have any +R's).

It is sometimes stubborn on -RW's. Closing the image doesn't always produce a valid closed image on -RW's (just starting to experiment with -R's).

Note: if you watch part of a video, be sure to either hit stop repeatedly, or eject and cycle the disc, before attempting disc operations (format or close) -- otherwise the unit gets "stuck" at something 20% -- I suspect it does not know how to regain exclusive disc access, unless you fully release the disc...

2 eggs might be generous, but I don't think it's quite poor enough to qualify for a 1 egg -- I also doubt it's as good as a 3-egg, but (I think the menu structure and interface are sub-average -- or perhaps I've just been blessed with good interfaces in the past)...

It seems usable, as long as you aren't expecting a Cadillac, and have some tolerance for clunky electronics.
