"Panasonic failed miserably with this model"1.0 starson by mastervi
Pros: Picture quality
Cons: Locks up all the time
Summary: This is my forth Panasonic standalone DVD recorder. I purchased the very first version, the second version and third with no problems. I still use them everyday at my office. But this new version is the pits. The first VHS to DVD transfer locked the unit up. Luckily, I could finalize it on my older version. Then I unplugged the system and let it reset. I tried a second transfer and it locked up again, this time giving me an error code of F60. I looked up the code in the owner's manual and could not find it. Tried unplugging and everything else. It will not work, only shows F60. I am taking it back today. I am looking for an older Panasonic version or buy a different brand.
