bad instruction book
By not too swift
from Falls Church VA
It took me a while to figure out how to "finalize" the recorded DVD so it could be replayed in another unit other than the original unit. The manual says that if the recording is not "finalized" it would nor play back in other than the original unit, but it did not explain that after recording, one has to go to "setup" and select "finalize".
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Complicated to Operate
This unit is only for "home" movies. Will not convert store purchased VHS movies. Very very complicated to operate. I'm returning it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Get your VHS tapes to DVDs asap
from Washington, DC
This converter is nice, but found one that hooks directly into my home computer which I can EDIT the tapes before burning on DVD. If you just want to take what you have on VHS and put everything onto a DVD, then this is an easy product. If you want to edit, title, organize, then this isn't your best bet.

Great product for converting VHS to DVD
I used this to convert my VHS home movies to DVD. Was simple to use once I looked in the direction booklet under "dubbing" (not recording). Also does a good job of playing VHS taped and DVD's. Have not tried to record a program to a DVD but the directions seem simple. Make sure you finalize the disc after you record or you cannot view it on other machines.

By Jeri the Quilter
from Rhinelander, WI
We have had the VHS To DVD Converter for about a week and have converted more than 20 VHS family videos to DVD. Although we have not tried all of the features of the unit, everything we have used has been easy to use and has worked better than we had anticipated. The instructions are very good, providing step-by-step direction for each application. This unit is well worth the money.

Good Product, Bad Documentation
from Pocatello, ID
The User Manual is very hard to understand if you are not an electrical engineer or something similar. I can dub a VCR to a DVD but have not yet been able to figure out how to copy my VHS C tapes on to one DVD. The user guide is not helpful!THE USER GUIDE IS NOT HELPFUL!!!!

Great product to own
from Fremont California
Great for use to convert VHS to DVD most especially if you have "unforgetable memories" caught on VHS (like what I have) and also this product would serve as a VHS player/recorder (if you still have the kind of vhs camcorder, whcich I still have & am still using) and as an extra DVD player/recorder.
