    I've been using it with DVD -R media and it records TV programs easily and, at faster record speeds, the video quality is very good. The disc finalize process seems to go reasonably quickly. After discs are finalized they play on other DVD players and computers without difficulty. The instruction manual appears to be well-written and it does a good job of explaining how to connect and operate the DVD recorder. This unit does have a slightly annoying problem. Each time I turn on the DVD recorder a message appears on the screen that says Unknown USB Device/File and to remove it. There is no device in the USB port so there's nothing to remove. The message goes away after about ten seconds and the unit works fine. I haven't tried using using the USB port to see if it works OK after that. I'm sure the warranty is a big hassle so I'm going to live with it. Other than the USB problem, I've been happy with it.

    I bought this as a replacement for my 6 year old Sunaii (nuff said!) which was constantly popping up "error-disc not recordable" messages despite using the recommended discs. Please use only discs recommended for this recorder, such as sony, jvc, verbatim, etc. DO NOT USE THE MEMOREX brand discs-you are just asking for problems. The player was very reasonably priced and looks good with my other electronics. The remote and menu are easy to use, and the recorder writes and finalizes very quickly. Discs take about 15 seconds to load but i believe this is normal with all dvd recorders. It came with a/v cords but my tv only accepts component and hdmi. I usually use hdmi anyway so no biggie there. My only real problem is with the recording mode timer lengths which are 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 hours but you can always manually stop recording and finalize yourself. I am just lazy and always automatically finalize at the end of timer recording. I only burn one movie per disc just to ensure i get the best possible quality. Also, the 3-year warranty is only 17 dollars. Get it! I hope this helps.

    The Toshiba DR430 DVD recorder is a good product but please, read the instructions carefully and then read them again. After that hook up the unit and follow the instructions to get started. I found using the quick guide in the middle of the book very helpful when I started recording. A word of caution. Not all brands and types of DVD discs will work in this recorder. If you read the booklet it does mention this fact and gives some suggestions as to disc type but you may still have to experiment a bit. I tried 3 different brands and types of discs, DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW before I found the Memorex DVD+RW 4X 4.7GB 120 min disc. That one works great and the finished product is very good even on a 4 hour recording. Overall I am very happy with this recorder and it is a good value for the money if you will take the time to read the instructions and do your part.

    I had the DR410 an earlier model to this one and loved it. I use it to to record TV shows and movies that I have on my DVR. It's an obsession I started a long time ago with VHS tapes. I loan the DVDs I've recorded to my parents to get them interested in a TV series that I tell them to watch because I know they're interested but always forget the time, day, or channel. Inevitably they like the show but are clueless on the back-story so then I loan them DVDs that include the whole season from the 1st episode and in some cases the entire series that spans several seasons. The quality is very good and I really like the HDMI output and up-conversion the unit provides. My only complaint or wish is that it included a HDMI input.

    The Toshiba DR430 DVD recorder is an excellent product that is easy to use and operate. Many users that have problems with the Toshiba simply use imcompatible DVD's; the type for your computer will not work in a DVD recorder. Also remember that this unit does not have a turner so you can only record the channel that is selected on your cable box, Direct TV, ect. Pro's: 1. Easy setup and use 2. Makes excellent recording at all speeds and can be set to "auto" to ensure the best recording Con's: 1. Remote is small and the buttons are not backlit 2. The remote is not universal Overall this is an excellent unit for the price.

    Read a number of reviews for this DVD recorder and for the most part they sounded okay. The price that Walmart offered this for was too good to pass up. The convenience of ordering it on line and picking it up at my local Walmart store to save on shipping charges was the icing on the cake. After about two weeks of using and enjoying this's DVD player to both play and record DVDs I am totally convinced I might the right decision all the way around. Even enjoy having the clock feature when the DVD is not in use. I knew ahead that I would not need an external tuner so that was really the only feature that could have been a concern but not for me. The ease of use allowed me to record quickly from my camcorder and create wonderful DVDs of my grand children. These will be wonderful gifts.

    This is my 4 th machine in 5 yrs. 3 other brands failed after 1 yr m.o.l. one was a JVC $300. I record 2 hrs/wk avg. I suggest you buy the Walmart 3 yr + mfg warranty, it's only about $25 on any machine up to $149 price. I expect to get a repair or the purchase price back in that time frame. So my cost per yr will be around $37 yr. This Toshiba has only been in-svc for a month (Jan 2012), it's no better or worse than any of the others. So 3 stars because I don't know how long I'll get out of it. AH! but I have 3yr warranty. I never buy extended Warranty, but my experience w/recorders vs $25 says this is way to go.

    I love this! It beats paying a membership for DVR and I still can catch all my shows. My only complaint would be that when you set it to record, you need to make sure that your disk has enough room for what you have set to record. If not, it won't record any of it at all. When it is time to turn on to record for preset recording it auto-checks for room on the disk for the length of time set to record and if there is not enough room, it shuts itself off and gives you no indication why your show didn't record. You have to figure that part out on your own. As long as you monitor the space available on your disk vs how much time you set to record, you should have no problems. One thing to remember... this does not have a tuner so if you don't have a dish service provider (dish network or direct tv) or an external cable tuner box you will need to get one or it won't work. I have dish service so not a problem for me.

    My husband and I were looking for something simple to replace our dying VCR that would also be compatible with an older TV that doesn't have HDMI. We have satellite service and don't subscribe to DVR, so this was an excellent option for us. So far this recorder has served us well, and as long as you set it to a lower recording length (higher quality) just like you would a VCR, the picture is excellent. I really only have two complaints: for one, it's kind of noisy while recording, but not horribly distracting. And for two, we have to run it through both the old VCR and satellite box to use it, and we have to leave it on in order to be able to watch something on TV as it's shown. That wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that in order to get a timed program to start up, we have to turn off the recorder until it's time to start recording and it will turn itself on for that. This means that you can't just leave it on and have the timer set and know that it will start recording when it's time. Not sure why it has to be off in order to register the timer. This was kind of a surprise to us just because it seems unnecessary and the old way of recording on any machine has never seemed to necessitate that the unit be turned off in order to activate a timed recording. I mean, we can live with it to save the money on DVR, but it is a little bit of a nuisance. Overall though, if you're looking for something uncomplicated to just record your shows, this is a good recorder that's easy to figure out as long as you look at your manual, and I'm only moderately tech saavy...I figure most electronics out pretty quickly, but I'm not always completely informed about the most current technological advancements out there, if that gives you an idea of where I'm coming from saying it's easy.

    The Toshiba DR430 DVD recorder is a very good for home recording. My only complaint is the clock gains several seconds a day. Although this is not much, over several weeks, your start and end times will be off enough that you may miss part of the program you are recording. I have been setting the clock each time I record a program. This is a bother. Other than this issue, the deck is perfect. I would recommend it with this one caveat.
