I have transferred several vhs tapes to dvd, and it worked very well.
Ray Novak
This Funai version is just as good and in some ways better - however, I doubt these devices will be around much longer.
Erika Sanders
Had to unplug it for 10 minutes and restart it all over to get it to work once more.

I had an old Panasonic DVD/VCR recorder and it finally died. I thought about taking the 100 VHS tapes I have to a professional place to get it done, but at $25 a pop ($2500!!), this machine looked like a better deal. It is very, very easy to 'install.' Unlike my last one, I didn't have to deal with red/yellow/green/blue/white jacks, trying to figure out what goes where. They do have that option, but one HDMI cable did the trick instead.

Directions are simple and clearly printed. I only had to look at a few pages because I'm only interested in the dubbing part of it. I don't care about any other features. However, we do watch DVDs on it as well, and we were amazed at the quality. Our old Panasonic had really gotten bad and we didn't even realize it. This new one has a great picture.

You can't watch and tape TV through it (no tuner), but we have a DVR with our satellite dish, so we didn't need that.

It does the job easily. I thought about getting a Toshiba, but several reviews seem to indicate that it was a bit more difficult to dub. This machine is simple, IF you follow the simple, illustrated directions.

I had never heard of Funai, but for the price I was willing to give it a try. Since I have no clue how long it will last I bought the extended warranty (cheap). If it gets all my videos done, it will be more than worth the price.

IMPORTANT!!! You need to have DVD- (MINUS) not PLUS. This unit will not work with PLUS (DVD+). DVD- are easy to find. After looking at reviews, it seems that not all recordable DVDs are created equal. I ended up ordering "100 Taiyo Yuden/JVC 8X DVD-R 4.7GB Silver Thermal Lacquer DVD-R." These appear to be the best quality and last the longest. Amazon has the best price for them.

I am so happy with this VCR/DVD combo. I shopped around for about a week and kept coming back to this one and I'm glad I made the right decision. Here a few details to know that I had to research before knowing what I wanted.
This combo will record VHS to DVD (the correct discs only) and will record DVD to VHS.
Remember to read over the manual because it has some very important info. I'm not crazy about the layout of the manual but I got used to it.
You can record from TV with the correct discs if you are also a satellite or cable customer (external tuners). The cables have to be plugged into both the combo box and/or the cable or satellite box.
And the quality of the DVDs are incredible, we are still amazed.

I've had this unit for almost two weeks now and have copied 30-35 VHS tapes to DVD; SO FAR it does what it claims to do and I have had no problems whatsoever. You can also record both VHS and DVD off the cable box. Installation looks intimidating at first glance but is really quite simple and unlike some competing machines this unit has several different ways to connect with televisions, other VCRs, cameras, cable boxes, et cetera, a feature I really appreciate. The editing features are fairly simple (as you would expect with the moderate unit cost) but have worked perfectly so far. I am so satisfied with this machine that if it breaks down in a month or two I still would have no hesitation whatsoever purchasing the same brand as a replacement.
What do I use it for? I collect silent films and early talkies for my personal use and have videotaped hundreds of them off TCM and similar stations; I have had no problems converting those old tapes to DVD-R. Also OOP television shows like the Science Fiction Channel's Destination: Truth, a marvelous program that for some inexplicable reason has only released Season One on DVD.
Why did I rate it a 4 and not a 5? Two reasons, one mature and one sort of little-kid-whining. The mature reason is that I wanted to reflect the fact that this is a basic unit, not a top-of-the-line device in terms of sophistication. The holding-my-breath-and-turning-blue reason is that Funai (a division of Magnavox I understand) seems a bit too concerned with copyright protection issues. One old movie that I probably videotaped off a DVD about 15 years ago wouldn't copy from VHS to DVD, citing protection issues. I imagine it was coded with a "copy once only" signal.

The Funai (I had never heard of this brand before I purchased this) seems to work well as advertised. If recording from VCR to DVD make sure that you use the unit to format your disks. Recording from VHS to DVD is a slow process as you record at the same speed as playback so a 1.5 hr tape will take 1.5 hrs to record to DVD. I prefer using DVD-RW media as after finalising I can then take the file (the file format of this unit is VOB) to my PC and convert the VOB files (it makes one file per GB of data) to any preferred video format. I can then erase the DVD-RW and re-format in the Funai and record a new VHS tape. The converted file can be edited then be written to any DVD.
The unit comes with remote, batteries, RCA cables (red, white, yellow) manual and quick guide. There is no HDMI cable included.
