Here's why I ignored the reviews.
Being a not so great product didn't mean much to me, as I needed a DVD recorder that would simply record shows. I didn't care about bells and whistles. The problem is that even with low expectations it's still very disappointing because it simply does not function correctly. At best a product should function and you should simply get what you pay for.
I even ignored the fact that it only takes DVDR plus disk, however it malfunctions exceedingly too often to be of any value. You simply do not have a DVR recorder when you buy this, you have a broken DVR recorder that looks okay near your TV.
*Must use the red, white & yellow cables, coaxial will not work (not so big unless your TV is old).
* Shuts off all the time, VERY soon after buying it. It needs to be reset again and again. (not good if it’s under other equipment)
* The technical support is kind of clueless like most of the typical bad ones, that are not patient even though to try to understand where you are coming from, nor do they try to become creative in the approach to solve an issue, making your wait time a waste of time and your expectations of it working also a disappointment.
* can not do anything with it until you set the clock and BASIC settings.
* At times, controls wont respond, including eject.
That's as far as I have gotten, I am returning mine today. If this product were free, I might hold on to it and put it in a room that had a TV that I seldom watched, but that's if it were free and my expectations were even lower... That's my review, good luck.
