Pros great TV resolution on an older TV
Cons manual instructions not specific or detailed in easy terms.
Summary It's amazing how the opinions very! I'm not sure about my overall rating yet, as I just got this. So far, the hardest part has been figuring out the instructions and connecting the machine to my TV, which is an older TV, and it is not stereo; it took trial and error and guess work to figure out how to get the sound to work, and that I only needed to connect one audio output to make it work. My TV set up was a little different than shown in the manual, but I could not tell from the picture where the hook ups went on this unit. I happened to have some dvd discs around that are dvd-R. I wasn't sure from the manual if they were compatible, and what the difference was. I called up the help line. The rep said that + was prefered and automatically would finalize while the - would not. I asked if If coud finalize myself, and he said yes. But so far I don't see in the manual if this can be done manually on a dvd r disk. I'm trying out a vcr to dvd copy now, so I'll see what happens. I thought a lot of setting up was guess work. It would help a NON techie to be more definitive with more specific steps within the manual. Other than that, My TV picture has NEVER looked so good, even better than the dvd/vcr player I was using before this. I tried playing a vcr and it looks great. I haven't tried a dvd yet or other disk. If I have any problems, I'll report back. VCR's won't be around forever,so I'm not going to be too picky about this if I can actually convert the tapes I have to disc. I can't say yet if this is useless, but I'll report back if it turns out to be. For now, if it works I'll keep it. If it does not, I have 90 days.

Cons You have to be a gambler to like this recorder. After burning a disk it needs to be finalized before it can be played on another dvd player. Here is where the big problem arises. The more important the disk the less likely it will finalize. On some of
