I have had a Radio Shack & Magnavox recorder before this unit.Each has lasted for little over 1 year before they stopped recording.They only play now. I expect this unit to last that long or longer if lucky.The old saying of you get what you pay for is really not true today.A lot of electronic equipment today are built with sub standard electronic parts.The days of (well built & will last) are long gone.This is the use-broke-throw away age.This unit has performed well since start up-only dislike is remote is about as big as a boat.
P.S. Remember to fanalize your recordings when you're finnished, or they won't be playable on other machines!!! A lot of people seem to make that mistake.
One advise is that if you want to record your DVD and watch on other DVD players, you should pre-set it with record compatible on. For your convenient edit chapter marks, you may want to pre-set it to automark chapter so you don't have to spend long time to fast forward/rewind to the location to mark the chapter. There are some cases chapter mark feature are gray out (I cannot add/delete/hide chapter marks) with some disc (My cases are with the Sony disc so far. Those TDK and HP disc are OK to edit chapters.#. I think it's possible that some blank disc need to be formatted before you can edit it after recording #I haven't try this so far).
The manual is also very impressive with large, easy to understand directions. I also like the fact that it's broken down by popular topics. My only gripe would be that the display is incredibly small. In fact, it's kinda difficult to determine if the unit is on or off. But this is a minor quibble. And some people are sure to prefer the 'stealth' look that this recorder provides.
over the last several years, I feel I have learned from experience.
I was very frustrated when the FOURTH of my purchases once again failed to work !
In each case I spent hundreds of dollars buying the BEST models available, only
to find that they eventually all fail. Judging from other reviewers, most
people run into the same problems.DVD recorders tend to last 2-3 years even with careful use.
This time I vowed that I would buy an inexpensive unit with ONLY the
features I needed.
Enter TOSHIBA dr420.
This model does not have a tuner (not needed if working with a cable/satellite receiver).
The quality is excellent, and "a breeze" to install! NO quirks in recording almost anything
( copy-righted material a given exception).
If you can run an old VHS tape-recorder, you can easily use this as well.
I am VERY SATISFIED with this purchase !!
The negative: I wanted the front display to function as clock. Oh, it does so, but only when it is powered down. Why would a designer have the front display only indicate the current input in use? A call to customer service confirmed that there is no workaround to having the time displayed when the unit is powered up. I took a star way because I had to purchase a $10 digital clock to place alongside it.
