For the right application this product performs very well. It is confusing at first, the remote leaves a bit to be desired, the manual is not friendly, but overall for a person with reasonable acumen for technology like this, I certainly recommend the item. I was hoping it would interface with my cable system better, but it did not. I now run a regular antenna to this for recording, and the cable to my TV for watching. My uses don't require recording much of anything from the wasteland that is cable TV, and 98% of what I wish to record is on broadcast TV. I do not want a cable-owned box or a TiVo subscription, and really just wanted a versatile VCR-type experience. This unit is one of the rare items that fit that bill. I have a good feeling for Magnavox products, and now that I have started using this, I have a good feel for this model. As I learn the DVD-recording capabilities and the dubbing opportunities, and use the full capabilities of this machine I know I will grow to like it even more.
