Since reading a magazine review on this machine, I'd been itching to get my hands on one. I have quite a large VHS collection, of both pre-recorded and home movie material, and transferring everything from tape to DVD presented itself as an ideal way to free up some storage space. Be aware though that you won't be able to transfer any copy-protected films, as the machine flatly refuses to allow it. So totally eliminating your VHS library is not likely to be an option

The machine itself comes with easy to digest instructions, so I was up and running with it in no time. The DVD drawer did take a while to open at the very first time of asking, but has been fine ever since. Copying from VHS to DVD, and vice versa, can be done simply at the press of a button. Editing certain portions of video footage requires a little more effort, but is still not too complicated.

Generally, I'm impressed overall by the quality of this machine. Picture quality after VHS->DVD transfer is very good. No chewing of tapes, no system lockups. I've knocked off a star as it does sometimes have an annoying habit, and it's this: If you transfer a certain portion of VHS to DVD, and press stop to end recording, the machine stops the tape. But it can then start recording to the DVD again - all by itself. So be prepared for random snippets of things between your edits.

The recorder worked well straight out of the box, it was simple to use, even the timer recording, which after my last two VCRs was a very pleasant surprise.

Copying my video cassettes to make backup copies was painless.

After a week or so of use, it started getting intermittent horizontal banding interference on the image from all sources, I got that sinking feeling in my gut knowing I would have to do battle to get a good fix, not a bit of it! I sent Amazon an email telling them of the problem, within 15 minutes I got a reply asking if I wanted a replacement or a refund, I asked for a replacement and I got a reply within the hour to tell me a new machine had been ordered, which turned up the following morning, I was able to print off a reply paid label to put on the box to send the defective machine back and called DHL to collect it.

The replacement has worked faultlessly since.

I judge people and companies by how they treat you when things go wrong, it's easy for them to give good customer service when all is going well but the best time to judge them is when things are not well, I can't praise Amazon enough, my experience with them has always been good in the past and I had no qualms about buying anything from them, but now I am eminently satisfied.

This is my third DVD recorder and I've now had it for about four months. The first two were Phillips machines: the first was an expensive model, bought for about £400 three years ago - this worked well at first but developed a number of problems (shop bought DVDs not playing properly (sticking, jumping); sound out of sync with the picture on shop bought DVDs and then finally it stopped recording too). After much hassle with the seller we eventualy managed to get it exchanged for another Philips model: this too worked well at first but developed the same problems as the first machine. In the interim I had bought a DVD player for £25 from Tesco that worked perfectly.

These experiences taught me that in the area of DVD players and recorders, expense and tradename don't necessarily buy you reliability so when I was looking to replace the second Phillips recorder I had two rules: not a Phillips (!) and as cheap as possible. If necessary then you can throw it away when it stops working! I settled on the Samsung because it has the VCR facility built in too.

Functionally I am very happy with this machine, it all works and four months on there is no hint of a problem so...fingers crossed.

The recording quality on DVD is better than a VCR, particularly if you record on the 2-hour setting, and is repeatably so, unlike tapes.

My advice to those considering buying a DVD recorder is not to think that the more expensive models are necessarily more reliable. Go for a cheap one - if you want the VCR functinality too so you can play your old videos then this model is a good buy. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is that I've only had it four months and am still nervous from the Phillips experience!

First of all- to my absolute horror when I received this machine and began setting it up, I quickly discovered that it isn't actually a `multi-region' DVD Player, at least it isn't right out of the box. After numerous failed attempts at playing region 1 DVD's and consulting the manual only to discover that it's implied the machine will only play discs that are described as either region `2' or `All', I contacted Amazon to inform them of this error in the description of the item. After some confusion and miss-communication I was eventually provided with the directions necessary to configure the machine to play all region DVD's, including `All' (I know, I was confused too). To ease your set-up of the machine should you chose to purchase it I'd advise contacing Amazon and they'll be able to provide you with the same directions, which are simplicity itself to implement.

Ok, panic over, now onto the review...

After trawling thought what seemed like hundreds of DVD players not just on Amazon but on many other electronic stores as well- searching in vain for a machine that had just a handful of concurring positive reviews to its credit, I finally came across this attractive (if a little larger than most) player. I wasn't even in the market for a combined video player, but what a useful feature it's turned out to be! All that I was really looking for in a DVD player was one that could play multi-region DVD's and also possessed a recordable feature. Trading up from a player that cost just £35 three years ago, I decided to spend a little more the second time around and hopefully avoid up-grading after only a year or so.
