You have to remember, you cannot expect perfection frow the lowest tier DVD recorders!
But at this point it is close and I am still pleased.(1) The clock loses one minute per week, so you don't have the sit through the unrecorded beginnings of TV shows.
(DVDs recorded on a different DVD Recorder behave normally.) (3) Nine months following purchase, any new attempt to record a DVD instead display a "DISC ERR" message.And yes you can record anything that a vcr can also.And if you still have your vcr and those Gigantic VCR tapes and you want to transfer to digital for good, you can do that with ease (If you need help dont hesitate to ask).If you understand that its kind of like a computer and freezes like one than its no big deal.I have only bought 1 set of DVD R's by memorex and they have worked flawlessly.
