I also don't like the small buttons on the remote.

Programming to record TV shows is very similar to programming a VCR manually (there is no automatic programming system, but it's really not that hard to do manually).

The picture quality is outstanding and the tv tuner in the unit is very good.

You know how you buy a product, and it doesn't have all the features you need? Well, this is another one of those. I've never understood why manufacturers sell products without all the features - I guess they need their customers to upgrade every now and then, huh?

I currently have a Panasonic DMR-E80H (80GB hard drive) that has worked flawlessly and is still kickin today. The time had come for me to buy another DVD Recorder. After TONS of research, I bought a RCA DRC8000N. This one was ok, good interface, cheap (200.00), but the tuner quality wasn't all that great - it had little wavy lines on my local channels (through analog cable signal straight from outside line). The remote control for the RCA wasn't responsive either - it took a second for each command to go through. So I exchanged it for the Polaroid DRA-01601A (260.00). This one had a little better picture quality (except through 1 of my channels which was extremely noisy), so I immediately returned it. Finally, my local Wally store had the Philips DVD3575H in stock and I picked one up for 300.00.

Pros:

The tuner quality is very good - I have analog cable, and my 65" tv shows little noise with it. The tuner is even better than my Panasonic one.

The remote is responsive and pretty well laid out - I don't like the black play/pause/rew/ff buttons though - I keep wanting to hit the button just above them so I still have to hunt.

You can play a recorded event while recording another one. You can play the one that you're currently recording too (ie: chase play).

It has SDTV tuner.

It's quiet when running - I honestly couldn't hear it from my couch.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this unit a few days ago at Walmart for about three-hundred dollars plus tax (regular price) -- still cheaper than Amazon. So far, I love it. You can record from the DVD to the Hard Dive and from the Hard Drive to a DVD. Of course, you can't record a copyrighted protected DVD. You can play and record to DVD-R/+R or DVD-RW/+RW, and you can play a CD. You can't play or record to DVD-RAM, but since none of my other DVD players play DVD-RAM, that's okay. There is no TV-guide as it programs just like VCR, but from what I have heard, although a TV guide would be nice, the TV guides on other units have too many problems. On the downside, it's not easy to add a title.

This is my first DVD Recorder, and I definitely wanted a Hard Drive for flexibility. Some items are bit complex, so you need to read the manual which appears to be well written. I have not had any problems with the Hard Drive locking-up like I have heard about other DVD Recorders with Hard Drives. I have not tested everything, but at this point, although it's not perfect, I am happy with my purchase.

Update: After two months of use, I am still very happy with this DVD Recorder.

Wow!!! This is my first dvd recorder and I am very pleased. I wanted to replace my VCR and so far, this has done the job and some.

I dont have cable, (dont watch enough tv to pay 48.00 per month, okay, hell, i'm cheap, lol) so the clarity of my signal was dependent on the weather. Well, this unit has a digital tuner which is crystal clear, and I gained an additonal 3 staions to go with the 8 I already have.

With the harddrive I can record up to 200 hrs worth of video, tv etc. in slp. (I use sp which gives my 66 hrs of very good video).

I can time shift up to 36 events over 1 month. The nice thing is when you go to the index menu, (a video listing of saved video) you can see what you recorded in these active windows.

You can record from the dvd to the harddrive and vice versa. (you cant record 1 time or copy write protected dvds to the harddrive).

If you are watching tv through the unit you can pause live tv, this is nice, very nice.

I've only had the unit for a week so i'm still learning about the unit, and by this being my first dvd recorder I may not be looking for things I have read others are looking for.

To sum up my first week with the unit, the unit has yet to lock up on me, I have recorded from dvd to harddrive and vice versa and it worked fine for me. Ive tried editing my recorded dvd, time consuming but i expected that.

I have previously owned a Philips HDRW 720/17 and a Philips DVDR3455H/37. Philips seems to advance in development of some features (HDMI and HD tuner) but goes backwards on others. The HDRW 720/17 had a build in TV guide and had title and summery info of all recordings (just like my Comcast and TIVO DVR). The DVDR3455H/37 took the TV guide feature away but allowed the user to input a short title for a recording while programming a timer event (Very helpful to find the right shows especially if you do 10 to 20 weekly recordings).
Yesterday I received my new DVDR3575H/37. You can't give any timer event a name until after it's done recording. I am wondering if the design engineers at Philips actually use their own products. Taking the ability to title shows away from the user is a huge step backwards in my eyes. Does Philips expect the user to sit down every day (or week), go thru the recorded shows and title them after the fact? What a waste of time. Why would any designer take such an important feature away? Also while the HD tuner is a nice feature (FCC making it mandatory that all manufacturers as of July 1, 2007 must have ATSC DTV tuner (VCR, DVD player/recorder, DVR)) one must wonder why we can not record in HD (my Comcast DVR records in HD).
This is my take on other DVR's out there:
3 stars total for TIVO; 5 stars for features on TIVO but deduct 2 stars for the fees (Big upfront cost for HD box, I will not get one again until they lower the monthly fees substantially)
4 stars total for Scientific Atlanta 8300HD (Comcast); 3 stars for the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR features, + 1 star for no upfront cost but a monthly fee, for the fee you get the name and summery of every show including a weeklong TV guide and HD recording.
