I was dubious, not knowing whether Daewoo were a good brand for electronics or not, but I was looking for a VCR/DVD+RW combi, and decided to take a chance. I'm not sorry I did either.
The free disc that came with it stopped recording after 8 minutes, and now the player doesn't recognise the disc - it keeps saying 'no disc', so I began to fear the worst. However, at the same time I purchased some spare discs (Verbatim DVD+RW 4.7GB (4x) 10pk Jewel Case), and all these record perfectly, are recognised AFTER recording, play on my modern DVD player (though not on my older model in the bedroom) with no problems at all.
Setting up is a doddle, recording from Sky+ couldn't have been easier with scart connections, and copying from VHS onto DVD+RW was simpllicity itself. Copying VHS tapes of programmes recorded off the tv years ago has SIGNIFICANTLY improved the picture quality.. it's astounding.
I've only had it a couple of days so far, but have recorded fully onto 10 discs already, and apart from the initial free disc, I have had absolutely no problems at all.
I have no problem in recommending this piece of kit... it's ridiculously easy to use, and ridiculously inexpensive!
10/10

I bought this as a gift for someone with a large collection of VHS tapes and it's been a big disappointment. Fine recording pre recorded tapes but won't read or record home made tapes. Long play function on the DVD doesn't work either. Finally, I'm told they play the common trick with 'multi region DVDs' - it doesn't actually play DVDs from the US or Australia, only DVDs which call themselves multi region. A cheat!

I got this machine last Thursday and so far everything has worked perfectly, including the enclosed disk. The quality is amazing even using 4hr record on the DVD. Gill, since this machine hasn't got a freeview tuner you will not be able to tune in freeview channels. I have a freeview box and the only way I can record freeview channels is to set the Daewoo to AV1 and record manually the freeview station I'm watching at the time.

Did not buy this from Amazon but from riptons which was £30 cheaper at the time, but has gone up slightly now. Away this is a great product, I have just set it all up and tried it out with the Ricoh DVD+RW disc that came with it, recorded from TV, copied a DVD and also recorded from my camcorder via dv. Works great but do read the instructions and follow them with regards to connections. I have a cable decoder (2 scarts) and my TV has 2 scarts, and it is quite important which scart lead goes in to scart1 and which goes into scart2.

I went through two of these machines (Amazon was *great* about replacing them, btw). The first worked fine--and it is, when it works, a great machine--but it began to eat all videos placed in it after about a week (the only way to release them was to switch off at the mains). A replacement machine did exactly the same thing from the minute I set it up. New firmware from Daewoo (who were very efficient in sending it off) didn't help. My suspicion is that the machine can't cope with pre-recorded videos as soon as you set it up to record a DVD (that's when all the problems begin) but there is no way to fix it once it's begun to act up (covering the record-protection tab on the video doesn't help either). I bought this machine hoping the negative views were from people who had much earlier versions of the firmware, but Daewoo has yet to make this product work.

Excellent product, within half an hour of opening the box I had set the machine up and did a few practise recordings, with great results including recording from sky , Later I tried the copy to DVD plus Copy to VHS and tried the video plus function. its such an easy to use machine, Plus its also able to read previously bought DVD+R/RW which my last DVD recorder did not recognise,( they were gathering dust) WELL DONE DAEWOO and thanks you Amazon for your swift delivery service and low price. This machine is between £50-£70 cheaper than most retailers, I certainly recommend the purchase of this machine from Amazon, I am a grandmother coming to terms with modern technology, If I can do the set up so can you
Buy It

I wanted to record my old home videos onto DVD, but I already have a decent DVD player, so looked for a cheap combi set to do this task. Only bought it at the weekend, but totally amazed at how easy it is to copy and impressed with quality. Just have to work out now how to record my freeview as it has only recognised analogue tv? Any ideas?

This is my first piece of Daewoo equipment, so I was a bit unsure of what to expect - especially at the price. All I can say is that I am very, very impressed. The build quality is excellent and the features/capabilities are very comprehensive. The Quick Start Guide and the User Manual are easy to understand, but if you are new to this technology I would recommend that you spend a bit of time reading the manual cover to cover before you start recording in order to get a full overview. Having done this, I found that once I started recording, I very soon got the hang of it. I thoroughly recommend this machine.

I thought it would be a great piece of kit but the on-screen menus are a bit unreliable, the record feature often fails and it regularly decided to stop recording before the DVD was full. I used both types of DVD (+R & RW) and I reckon I had 2 successes out of 10. Checked the Daewoo website and got the latest firmware but it wouldn't load - the supplier (not Amazon) sent me a CD with the new firmware and that failed too. I sent it back 4 weeks after their refund date expecting a replacement and they just gave me my money back (and removed it from their online store) hmmm. Shame as it's a really usefull idea - ANYONE KNOW of a similar piece of kit please??

We got this machine thinking that it would be the answer to our problems - lots of videotapes to transfer to DVD. Read the reviews and there were many 5 stars - best thing since sliced bread!! Price seemed good, too, so took the plunge. Big disappointment! First machine swallowed up a dvd we'd previously recorded on another machine and wouldn't spit it out. The drawer remeined stubbornly and permanently shut. Contacted Amazon who said they'd replace it. Full marks, Amazon, because the replacement came very swiftly. However, further disappointment since, after a week in which it did work, the same thing happened again. This time contacted Daewoo who wouldn't confirm whether this is a generic fault or only applies to a batch. Research online with Digital Spy seems to suggest others have had this problem. We're now awaiting further contact from Daewoo. In two minds whether to have money back or persist. Some of those reviews were very positive, though, and we remain hopeful.
