FANTASTIC piece of kit!!!
on 9 May 2005
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!
