"Good product for the price some drawbacks."2.5 starson by reyno71
Pros: Records all formats, DV in front panel
Cons: Slight softening of recorded images. Guide graphics and functionality low quality.
Summary: This is my third DVD recorder purchase. I bought this one for it's multi format capability and price. It's great for recording home movies. Don't expect the quality to be as good as a movie you purchase. You could spend 2 or 3 times the price for another unit and not get a great difference in recording quality. One thing that gets annoying is that it doesn't remember the last input you recorded with. So if you want to always record from the DV in you have to hit input and scroll to DV in each time.
