"HiDef Quality both live and the recording, Best yet"5.0 starson by mg2018
Pros: Excellent Picture, Built in Fan prolongs life of Unit, Solid, No dubbing problems or synch issues. Clear viewing in HD
Cons: No pass through technology for when you shut down the unit, no sound or picture are passed through to your TV, Stereo
Summary: This is a very good unit and I would recommend to all. This system has really good picture quality and images. Sharp, crisp images with 16:9 and 3:2 pulldown. EZ to setup and begin recording, using flexible discs also a plus. There is excellent dubbing from VHS to DVD and visa-versa. A great system with whisper quiet built in fan (which many recorders now have eliminated) which will prolong the life of the unit. S-Video INput also a good feature (as some units now only offer RCA input) from your cable box and SAT. This is a winner.
