    This is a decent DVD PLAYER, but a pathetic DVD recorder or VHS player. I have had the unit for one year and it has been a miserable experience. The first few months there was no problem with DVD recording, but viewing tapes was less than satisfactory right out of the box.

    After about two months the unit would no longer record DVD’s. I tried different brands, different speeds, cleaning the unit, and a multitude of suggestions found online by other unfortunate souls experiencing the same issues. I was finally able to get it to record by putting disks into my computer and formatting them, which was a royal pain, but now it won’t record on new disks at all. (And yes, I have tried numerous brands.)

    Buying this unit will be a waste of your money as well as a frustrating experience.

    The device is hard to use.

    The interface is very poor.

    After two years of little use, it stopped working completely.

    We bought this to convert home videos to DVD. The onscreen interface takes a little getting used to but it’s pretty straightforward if you know what you need. The highest quality conversion (allows 60 minutes of video) appears better than the original VHS. One of the best features is the ability to delay the “finalizing” of a disc. This means that you can covert one tape, remove it and insert another tape and add it to the DVD. So if you have multiple tapes of shorter length they can be combined onto a single disc. After you have a full DVD you then finalize it. Actually I’m surprised that this is the first machine I’ve seen with this feature. Overall it’s a good product and especially at the discount price.

    NOT Happy with this machine. I bought machine 11/27/09. The dvd player works fine; however, the vcr no longer functions properly. It will play a tape for a few minutes then the machine completely shuts off then ejects the tape. I called in the warranty and it is actually more expensive for service ($69.95) at a local service center than I actually paid for the machine. Now I’m stuck with a piece of crap machine. Thanks a lot.

    This machine is exactly what I ordered. It was a different color than the one in the picture but the features were all the same. It is a nice easy machine to operate if you’ve had experience with recording equipment previously otherwise it can be a little intimidating. The instructions are easy to follow but a little wordy. The features are not as well indexed as I would have like in the manual but it is still manageable.

    The instructions walk you through the process step by step. Once you find the name for the desired operation given by Magnavox you can follow along with no problem. The trick is to find it in the techno-jargon of Magnavox first.

    All in all the machine does exactly what it is supposed to do. It does it in a reasonable amount of time. It is a good machine for those that are simply wanting to make back ups or capture video directly from TV or digital feeds compatible with a television feed but it is not for those who want to do the down and dirty editing of raw video.
