"Stopped working in less than 3 months"1.5 starson
Pros: A variety of formats can be used
Cons: Reliability/Tech support
Summary: I have owned this model for under 3 months. I have recorded on it only twice. On the third try, the machine did not record. It stuck in the "load" position and the tray will not move. The only advice tech support could provide was to "unplug" the machine. When this failed to solve the problem I was given no choice but to ship the unit to Laredo, TX for repair.
