          Comments about Toshiba Tunerless DVD/VCR Combo:

          This is a great device which includes both a VCR and DVD player. All I was looking for was a simple VCR but they are not so easy to find these days. Toshiba was the only brand I could find locally. I spent more than I wanted to for the added DVD player but it will serve me well as I did not have a DVD player in that room. This device is super easy to connect and use. The remote control is very user friendly and overall it is a great machine. I am one of the few left that rely on a VCR to record my shows. Maybe as more people 'cut the cord' VCRs will make a comeback!Or maybe DVRs will get more affordable over time. Hopefully this machine will last a good long time, like my last one did. It was also a Toshiba.

          Very Good Basic Recorder

          By ZipZinzel

          from El Paso, TX

          Comments about Toshiba Tunerless DVD/VCR Combo:

          I am an advanced user, I have had this unit about 2 years, THIS IS A VERY SOLID BASIC DVD RECORDER. I had 2 different Panasonic DVD Recorders over 3-4 years before that. BASICS= This unit doesn't have any "TUNER" so you can't just hook up basic cable or an antenna feed into it == you hook up the output of cablebox, or DigitalTuner==This should be basic knowledge, While this is a good, overall basic DVD recorder, it is much less utilitarian than the Panasonics (and less costly too).

            excellent product; quick set up

            Comments about Toshiba Tunerless DVD/VCR Combo:

            I was initially worried when I read some reviews, but was later pleasantly surprised at how wrong those negative reviews were. It took me about 10 minutes to set the dvd recorder up and I was recording immediately. Picture quality is great. I'd recommend this product to anyone!

            Poor product

            By hsofcats

            from Oregon

            Comments about Toshiba Tunerless DVD/VCR Combo:

            VCR constantly kicks out tapes for no reason. Blurred picture every time the tape is forwarded or rewound. Picture is blurry, machine shuts off and kicks out the tape I did go out and purchase new tapes to be sure that old tapes. Didn't improve at all. Very loud noises when ever tape stops.
