Sony's silver SLV-D360P DVD/VCR combination lets you enjoy your DVDs, VHS videos, and your CD-based digital media files right in the comfort of your living room or bedroom. The deck handles just about any conceivable media format, from VHS and S-VHS tapes (which it renders at standard VHS resolution) to DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, and DVD+R/RW--including CPRM-protected programming (Content Protection for Recordable Media). It will even spin your homemade MP3 CDs and JPEG picture CDs (including Kodak Picture CD).

Whether you already own an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the SLV-D360P can deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Other DVD features include instant replay, picture zoom, and parental lock.

The VCR section offers 1-month, 8-event advance programming and commercial skip. Your camcorder or gaming console plugs right into the front panel for hassle-free connections. Its 4-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. State-of-the-art, 19-micron video heads deliver the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for some TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use 2 inputs, however, as the device will not upconvert the signal from the VCR to either of those higher-resolution formats.

It's a different deal for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component (one is supplied), or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial, not supplied). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit VHS/DVD audio and video to your TV, a multi-lingual onscreen display (English, Spanish, French), and an illuminated DVD/VCR remote control that also operates most brands of TV.

And in the menu, often what the menu items are don't map to the remote buttons.

After owning for just 6 months or so, DVD player began to freeze up every few minutes on DVDs that will play just fine in another DVD player.

This product is one of the better ones and I highly recommend it to anyone needing such a device.

Having just purchased a Sony LCD TV, I thought I couldn't go wrong with a matching Sony DVD/VCR player. The DVD player appears to be stable and dependable, which has got to be worth something (try finding on Amazon a DVD player with decent consumer ratings from reviewers). But for a consumer leader like Sony, the instructions are depressingly convoluted and reader-unfriendly, packed in a reduced-format manual that doesn't provide full illustrations (front, back, remote) and labels for all the jacks and controls (whatever happened to thin manuals with big pictures and "quick set-up and operation" instructions up front?). I'm not even planning on using the VCR for recording, but I'm still searching the manual to find out why VCR playback isn't registering on the monitor.

A few other minor complaints: the VCR does not accept an S-Video connector (common, I guess); the included Sony remote will operate all the TV sets in the house with the exception of my new Sony(!); finally, I'm a bit annoyed that even a trip to the Sony website does not make clear the difference between this set (SLVD360) and the one just above it (SLVD560), other than a twenty-dollar higher price tag.

I may annul this unsunny Sony honeymoon and take a look at a lower-priced Panasonic or Phillips (their current ads pitched at non-rocket-scientist consumers must have me in mind).

[Addendum: I held on to the machine, which may not have been a wise decision: the VCR is providing the jumpiest image I've ever seen from a VHS tape source.]

This is a great DVD/VHS player combo unit. Its interface is easy to use and programming is a snap. It has the ability to use progressive OR interlaced scan when using component outputs which is a big plus if you have a TV like mine that has component inputs that don't accept a progressive scan signal. However, on the downside, the unit can't up-convert VHS video. Hence, the component outputs only work for the DVD half of the unit. If you use them, you still have to plug in the VCR using a standard coaxial cable or RCA composite AV cables.

Also, although the manual says that composite AV cables deliver a better picture than using a coaxial cable, I just didn't see a improvment on my TV. The standard cable line provided a much deeper and cleaner picture than the RCA cables did.

Oh, and to the reviewer who asked the difference between this player and the SLVD560, I think the main difference is that the SLVD560 has VCR +.

Within a week of getting this, it started taking forever to load movie DVDs that work fine on my PC, and the movies would stop and suddenly claim to be 'unreadable disks'. They work fine in other players.

It has some nice features, but I can't say much for its reliability.

This is yet another excellent product by SONY for the price and the features are prolific. The DVD and CD player is good. I send the sound to my home receiver and it sounds wonderful. The VHS portion plays better than my other stand-alone SONY VCRs. What I really liked is that you can view JPEG images and this unit has Quasi-S Playback so I can play my S-VHS tapes. The picture is good. As with other similar SONY units, I found it amazing that the EP record mode (6 hour) looked better than the SP (2 hour) on black & white movies. I still don't like the remotes that SONY gives you with these models but that's a minor issue. If you want to watch DVDs, record and play VHS tapes I would recommend this SONY unit.

After moving and rewiring all of our Audio and Video equipment in our house after our Christmas present to each other of a new Sony TV, we purchased this Sony DVD/VCR combo unit from Amazon. The price was cheaper even with shipping than we could purchase it locally on sale. The hook-up time for this unit even with a satellite connection in the mix was incredibly easy. Both the TV and the DVD/VCR talk to each other well, and both remote controls seem to handle all of their multi unit functions well. Have had no problems with this unit since it was purchased in January 2006.

Machine is fine, as is the remote. Manual, however, is not fine in that some directions are murky and others are wrong.

Worked OK until it suddenly died after only 8 months of moderate use. Sony warranty covers parts for a year, but labor for only 90 days. They offered to swap with a refurb for $33 plus the cost of shipping the dead unit to them. Prior to its demise, I would have rated it acceptable. DVD is very slow to load, especially music CDs and VCDs.
