    The first recorder I received was faulty - the DVD door did not open but everything else seemed okay. I contacted Amazon that evening by email and then phoned the next morning. They were terrific and despatched a replacement straight away, paid for next day delivery, and arranged collection of the faulty one the day after that. Full marks to Amazon customer service!

    The replacement device is great, it's exactly what I want - it does everything - tape - DVD - hard disk - recording and playback. So easy to use and good looking too. My wife is pleased as it's recording the whole series of Coro whilst we are on holiday - just select series. Another useful feature is that if I program a recording and it collides with an existing one it suggests a later broadcast e.g. on ITV2 and you just select that. It can all be done from the electronic program guide which is also the easiest I've used.

    Get this machine and you won't be disappointed - apart from wondering to do with all the gear it replaced - and the shelf space.

    overall this does exactly what i wanted it to do:(i) record my VHS to DVD, (ii) record my home vids to DVD, (iii) record the stuff I want to keep from Virgin + box to DVD; (iv) play VHS and DVDs and i like the face you can delete the adverts out of recordings from the TV and Virgin + box. The menus take a bit of getting used to as they aren't great, but it has a good manual, so you just need to look it up! couldnt find HDMI port on the back to start with, but it is there :)

    I bought this DVD / Video / HDD recording combo because, amongst other things, I wanted to be able easily to copy and archive some old video material to digital format, and I have didn't have a (digital) DVD recorder. So far it has done this job superbly. I haven't used anything like all of its features and functions yet, as it is used in combination with a twin (digital) tuner PVR. It's being used with an analogue TV, and it's worth pointing out to potential purchasers without a digital TV that this machine has only one digital tuner - thus without having the PVR (or a digital set top box) as well, it wouldn't be possible to view one channel whilst recording another.
    Also worth mentioning is I contacted Toshiba's customer support, because I couldn't intially see how to pause and record live TV, and they quickly emailed me pointing me to the relevant section of the comprehensive manual that describes how to do this. One piece of caution though - because this machine has so many functions, it may not be the most suitable for elderly relatives who are struggling to get to grips with new technology...

    I bought this combi recorder to replace an ageing VCR machine which wasn't going to cope with the changeover to Digital TV. Connecting it up is a bit of a nightmare but the Toshiba Technical Helpline are very good and very patient - especially with those of us who are not technically minded! Be warned though - if you haven't got a 16 year old technical wizard to help you, the manual is a bit of a struggle to understand! It records onto video tape, hard drive and disc, and plays video (so you can still view all your old films, wedding videos, etc.) disc and DVD, not forgetting the excellent quality hard drive (which has a whopping 280 hour capacity). The front of the machine doesn't tell you anything unless it is switched on and/or recording/playing back; in other words, there is no clock and nothing to tell you that it has done the recordings that you have programmed it for. After a power cut, it seems to recover itself but I don't know if you loose any details of programmes that you wanted it to record - the ones already recorded seem to be safe. The power consumption is a bit high at 48w, but when in standby mode, it's a very small 0.93w.
    The black coloured handset is a bit cluttered and could have been laid out in a clearer fashion and as the printing on it is grey in colour and squeezed between buttons, they are hard to read in low light levels. After a few months of use, I will hopefully know where the buttons are and won't have to try and read the text!
    The only other thing I would point out to prospective purchasers is that there is only ONE digital tuner in the recorder, therefore unless your TV has its own digital tuner, you will need to keep your set top box connected otherwise you will not be able to watch one channel and record another.
    Apart from the niggles above, I'm pretty much pleased with the recorder and would certainly recommend it for those people with large video collections.

    found this a little difficult to operate at first but this is not the fault of the toshiba unit,more my inability to grasp new technology easily.have now mastered the basics and am well satisfied with this purchase.ican dub from h.d.to disks and can dub from vhs to h.d. and then on to disc.i can pause "live" tv and record direct to the h.d. the more i use it the easier it is becoming.the price was very reasonable as a similar product locally with only a 160g.b. hard drive would have cost me more all in all i think i made a good purchase

    Apart from the manual which is hard going as other reviewers have pointed out the unit does everything you can want from it. I bought it to remove all the extra cabling I had between my Freeview box, DVD recorder and video recorder. I have dubbed my old holiday videos to the hard disk, edited them and then dubbed them to a DVD, all very easily. I cannot think of anything so far to say against it. Once you have read the manual from end to end (which is the only way to understand the required actions as it jumps around and gives the same information twice in different contexts) you can use it easily. My wife is certainly happy there is less cabling and only one unit to dust!!
