Pros Black is a nice color, and the clock works reasonably well.
Cons This machine is perhaps the worst piece of garbage any electronics company has ever produced, and that's saying something. Figuring out how to use it requires a doctorate in mechanical engineering, and once I did figure it out, it stopped working.
Summary I expected quality from Toshiba. Had I wanted the piece of garbage that I got, I would have gone with a Coby unit from WalMart. Dubbing from tape to DVD was so complex and so filled with potential errors that after a few attempts, I gave up. This was the primary reason I bought this unit: to get rid of my old tapes and, well, you know, make some more room. Scratch that, then. So I have this nice DVD player that also tells me the time. Except the DVDs start to skip. Mind you, I rarely use DVDs: my wife and I stream Netflix via Roku. So the DVDs skip. I clean them. They skip. So I took a break from using this machine.
A few days ago I went to use it and noticed that the clock was not on. I checked the plug; it was plugged in. Everything else in that circuit worked. I changed outlets. No go. So now this big box is sitting on my dresser collecting dust. I'd have gotten rid of it already, but I hate throwing stuff like that out.
Pros none at all
Cons audio goes out on VCR and I waiting on my third unit!
Pros None I will never purchase from Toshiba again.
Cons After about 4 months the tuners go out. You are told to send the DVR back for repairs. They cannot repair the DVR and send you a new one. I am getting ready to send back my third DVR.
Summary Do not buy this product. I am looking for someone not in the state of Utah that would be interested in helping me do a Class action law suit. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pros We didn't like anything about this product.
Cons Had a terrible time figuring out how to record. Never did figure out how to watch TV while the recorder was set to record later. When we did record something we couldn't find it on the disk later. So user-unfriendly. Returning it to Fry's today.
Pros Nothing. Toshiba"customer service" hasn't allowed me to like anything about it.
Cons Arrived new and broken. It has taken almost a month to get them to ship a replacement, long past the time I am willing to deal with toshiba.
