old tech to new
from Suburban Maryland
I bought this to update my filmed memories and so far so good with functionality. The VCR makes a loud click when the rewind comes to an end, but it doesn't seem to affect the tapes so far.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By HS Shopper
from Victoria TX
I was very pleased with the unit, once I figured out how to operate it. I am using it to transfer precious VHS tapes to DVD. Word of warning - remove the copy-protection tab on the VHS tape before you start.

Easy to use!
By mail lady
from northwest arkansas
I bought an HDMI cord, plugged it into the back of my tv and the back of the VHS player, and that's all it took! The instructions to record from VHS to DVD are very simple to understand and follow. I read the directions completely before I tried to copy for the first time and I had no problems. I would recommend this player if you have lots of VHS tapes to copy to DVD. It works great!

Helpful in saving family videos
By Allergic Librarian
from Arlington, VA
My mother asked me to digitize some family video tapes, particularly several which featured my dad; I looked around but had trouble finding someone to do it. This solved my problem.

Very Happy with Purchase
By PA in FL
from Ft. Lauderdale, FL
This is my first time trying to transfer VHS tapes to DVD and am doing it for my job as a Personal Assistant with all of my Boss's old tapes. I'm very tech savvy so for me, after reading the easy instructions a couple times I'm able to do it without them now. The DVD's come out looking exactly how the VHS does so keep in mind that if your VHS has static or problems they will transfer to the DVD, other than that, very happy with the purchase.

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.

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".
SO FAR IT HAS WORKED PERFECTLY FOR ME
By THE MOVER
from AUDUBON IOWA
WE HAVE BEEN TRANSFERRING VHS TAPES TO DVD AND IT HAS WORKED PERFECTLY SO FAR. WE STILL HAVE ABOUT 40 MORE TAPES TO TRANSFER SO HOPE IT KEEPS WORKING LIKE IT HAS SO FAR.
