The product was a little difficult to use at first, the instructions are not useful . However, the reviews I read prepared me for that. Basically I set the product up from the reviews and the manual.Only issue I keep encountering is that once in a while I get an Error E26 message . It says this tape is "not allowed " to be copied. But they are only my home movies so that would be impossible. Not sure what that is or why it happens but if you start to record again , just fast forward a little - it resumes recording.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Saving VHS tapes
By Dandy Don
from Blanchester, Ohio
I use it to copy the old family VHS tapes. Does a great job. The copy turns out better than the original. The only problem I had was with which record bottom to use in dubbing, once I figured that out, it has been a pleasure to use. Look at the picture of the remote on the page to see the highlighted record button. Great product!

from atlanta, ga
Directions can be a little difficult as is also the case with the remote. SO many buttons, very tiny writing and it's confusing as to whether the button name is on top or bottom of button.....read carefully the directions in the book about how to do the VHS to DVD.....we messed up many times and called twice to manufacturer to get guidance BUT all that being said, it works great and it's been priceless.

Not a bad machine
from New York, NY
The recording instructions in the manual are completely indecipherable. Only through an hour of trial and error were we able to figure out how to record a DVD from the VHS. The easiest way to do it is (1) insert the DVD and it will format itself (2) insert the VHS and hit play (3) press the "dubbing" button on the remote and don't do anything else.
