This accomplished it in about three evenings while I watched TV. Pop the source in the top, pop the blank in the bottom, then walk away until it beeps and the bottom tray opens. Pop in another blank to make another duplicate or remove the source to duplicate a different disc. It copies a two-hour DVD in less than 10 minutes and produces a perfect digital duplicate of the original, including title menus and chapter marks. My ONLY issue is that I had to keep pausing my TV show every 10 minutes to jump out of my chair and start the next duplicate.
At $135 to duplicate 35 years on home movies onto 70 new DVDs, it came out to less than 50 cents per duplicate. I consider that a good result in the first week of use, and future use will be gravy.
Disclaimer -- so far, I've only duplicated DVD-R originals onto DVD-R blanks. I've not used DVD+Rs, DVD+RWs, DVD-RWs, CD-Rs, or CD-RWs, though the machine says it will duplicate them as well. If the occasion arises for me to use something else, I'll report my results.
Until then, though, I'm absolutely happy. Plugged it in, spent 12 seconds learning how to use it, and accomplished a big project very easily.
ADDENDUM: After several months of use, I have found another very handy feature. I originally operated on the assumption that the target media had to be identical to the source media. That's not the case! As long as there is capacity on the target, it will copy. Depending on how they will be used and in what machines, I sometimes use -R as the target and sometimes +R. The duplicator will copy from either to either, and will copy from one format to the other.
I successfully copied from a DVD-R DL to a DVD+R DL and vice-versa. The handiest thing is that it will copy from a DVD-RW or DVD+RW to a DVD-R or DVD+R.
That means I can make my master disk on a rewritable disk. Sometimes it takes me several edits to get things just the way I want them, with appropriate break points between scenes. Or, sometimes I don't the thumbnails I set up when I see them after the disk is finalized. Now, I can make the master on a -RW or +RW, and make it over again if I need to, without wasting disks. Once the RW is perfect and finalized, the duplicator will copy it perfectly onto either a -R or +R, regardless of the source type of -RW or +RW. Great flexibility and it reduces the number of coffee table coaster. The more I use it, the more I like it.
He has probably made a thousand people smile using this thing, including himself many times :-)
I had one go bad a few years back, the seller was quick to remedy the situation, good customer service!
I give it 5 stars for delivery and for the item itself so thats 10 stars! I would reccomend this product to
everyone! It works great and no more using the burner on my slow computer!!! I shopped around and saw so many burners for 200.00 and up which i was really wanting a burner but for a reasonable price, This was cheaper and works the same as the high priced ones i saw. It pays to shop around!
Okay, so it doesn't work, not the end of the world, right? Read on to find out what could happen to you:
Acumen Disc outsources their tech troubleshooters, so to return the unit, you'll have to deal with two different companies, which has been extremely confusing. Once they allowed the return (after trying to just get me off the phone for the third time) I finally convinced them to accept the return. So, I sent it back in perfect working order with no signs of wear and tear at all, in the same shipping box with all accessories and paperwork and packaging. After three weeks, I had to contact them to see if they were ever going to process the return. They finally did but not for the original amount of $135, but only for $108. This doesn't include the $18.66 I had to pay out of pocket to return the unit in the mail. Altogether, I'm out of $45.66 because of Acumen Disc. I've had to file a claim with Amazon and this entire process has been a huge headache.
I've been working with video electronics for over twelve years and I worked at Radioshack for three years. I know what I'm doing with this kind of equipment, and the bottom line is that Acumen Disc is making a unit they can't guarantee will work, and they're doing this at the expense of the customer.
