1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money! November 13, 2009
It's a shame that a company like Magnavox, which used to put out some fine quality products, would put their nameplate on garbage like this. Bought for my 80 year old mother-in-law we found that the DVD plays and sounds fine, but the VCR is pretty much horrible. Terribly poor quality. It records only in MONO! ANYTHING mono anymore? And it doesn't play well with other machines. She has to blast the TV volume on any tape from another machine. That means when you turn off the player, the TV (now playing regular cable TV) is blasting. Mom-in-law jumps a foot. Many features which used to be present on VCR's are not here. No TV/VCR button to check on regular TV while watching a tape and nothing to tell you how much tape is left. No front line-in jacks for the grandchildren coming over with video games and now forced to pull out the TV to plug in their toys. And setting the timer is bewilderingly, mom-in-law is going crazy listening to the cacophony of noise coming from the VCR motor. Literally...whirls, squeaks and chatters...heard by her though she's going deaf. This is a 6 month old machine no less! All in all, a waste of [...] bucks.
I understand that VCR is an archaic technology but there are a lot of older folks out there who will continue to use if Magnavox doesn't mind taking their money, at least give them their moneys worth!

1.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD player, lousy VHS player. December 22, 2009
Just like the first reviewer said, these players are junk. Strangely, the DVD portion has excellent picture and sound, but the VCR portion audio is analog. It's taken off the linear audio track running along the edge of the tape, which is old school. So, the sound is weak and fidelity is very poor. You would think people buy a combo unit so they could still play their VHS movies. Evidently Magnavox figured people buy a combo unit because they look neat or something. The VHS portion of these players is nearly useless. Don't buy one if you plan on playing your VHS movies. Especially if they're movies with special effects or lots of music. There's no bass whatsoever, and very weak everything else. I'd rate it zero stars if I could, so that one star is way more than it deserves. I'm going to avoid any and all Magnavox products. They've shown their true colors with this unit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad That Magnavox Is No Longer A Trusted Name! February 8, 2010
I gave this a one star because there is no way to give a negative number of stars! We bought a total of 4 of these all the exact same. Less than 6 months later EVERY one of them has bit the dust. The first one the VCR went out followed by the DVD and all the others the DVDs went out. 5 months later, 4 machines and we have 1 left that the VCR works on (and not well!). 1 year warranty is a joke. The 800 number is a recording that will tell you that for that product number you have to visit the website. The website has the model number listed and when you click on it says that information is no longer available. I have kept boxes, receipts, and owners manuals and the only thing that it seems like they are going to be good for is the recycle bin! Sad that what used to be reliable brand names have fallen by the way side!

1.0 out of 5 stars Let this one pass January 23, 2010
My parents bought this. When my father had trouble setting it up he asked me to try. Neither of us could find an input connection for the VCR. I finally found a notation in the manual about connecting a camcorder or other device to the recorder, but nothing about TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did I Luck Out? February 13, 2011
By Ted
I just got my Magnavox combo but I've already watched a couple of tapes and one DVD with none of the problems I'm reading here. Sound quality and volume on the tape is essentially the same as with the TV and the VCR motor is noiseless. I didn't have to adjust the volume when I switched from one mode to the other and the small speakers on my TV aren't exactly great for good bass no matter what. All I wanted was a machine to play my discs and tapes and this one fits the bill quite nicely so far.

It was really simple to hook it up and get it operating, the remote is easy to understand and read, and it looks tidy and compact. The operations buttons on the front of the unit are easy to see and read, too, unlike so many that have black buttons on a black background with charcoal gray labels to tell what they do. For right at 40 dollars including an optional one year money back warranty and free shipping, it was a super bargain. Maybe the outfit I ordered it from rejects any that are poorly refurbished. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I haven't had it very long so I don't want to be overly enthusiastic yet.

A gift for my mother to play the older VHS tapes for the grandkids while still being able to play a DVD. To be honest I have never seen a VHS tape played on it myself, but I cannot believe it plays well with all the problems on the DVD side. It seemed to work well for about 10 months, then the DVD player started to not recognize discs. Could not read them. You can hear the mechanisms inside trying to read the disc and it goes through several attempts and then just stops. Took it apart to just see if a cable connection was not seated well and pulled out the DVD module. Took some isopropal alcohol on a cotton Q-Tip and cleaned the small lens. Put it back together and it seems to have helped with the disc and picture quality but it still has moments of picture pixelation and slow mo during DVD play back. Plus the sound stutters every now an then. I tried a new set of RCA wires just to be sure and they did not improve anything. It is sad to see Magavox put their name on such a poor product manufactured by FUNAI Corporation. Profit margins must have been huge. Also sad that these players are going for $60 to $70 and at that price no one in their right mind will actualy "pay" for any service labor after the 90 day labor warranty. Very disappointed but goes to show you the bid for manufacturing goes to the lowest bidder for the highest profit margin. Free market economy drives such poor products to the market. Magnavox should eliminate any future contracts with FUNAI Corporation in an attempt to preserve any credibility they may still think they have in the eyes of the consumer.
