"Great for transfering old VHS, Hi-8 videos to DVD's!"4.5 starson by samtara
Pros: Easy to use, multiple formats, nice package, useful features.
Cons: Non-Sony camcorders are not as compatable, cannot move items once on disc, no large screen connection for viewing during edtis.
Summary: It is the answer to transfer the old digital 8 tapes to DVD. It also is good for transferring digital picutes to a DVD for easier viewing with new format players. The unit is cool and compact, user friendly, but you have to read the manual to learn all the whistles and bells. Some of the tasks could be better defined but overall good owners manual. If you don't have the newest camacorder with a fire wire then you lose some simplicity features, but not too difficult to overcome. Overall, it's worth the money just to transfer the old tapes to DVD.
