1 Star Rating  "A terrible, unreliable product" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from New Orleans, LA United States
Weeks after we got this player, it began to buzz slightly and annoyingly on and off when playing dvds. Now, a year and a half after we bought it, the video feed on it has died completely.
 
1 Star Rating  "Machine failed after 2 years" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Machine worked great for 2 years and then quit. Estimated repair cost is over $400, so it will be recycled. Not a very good value for the money.
 
2 Star Rating  "DVD stopped playing after 2 years" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Paid over $200 for this & it only lasts 2 years? Not good, for how much I paid. Is nothing made to last anymore?
 
1 Star Rating  "A terrible product" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from WI
I bought one of these and initially liked it. So did my sister, and a friend also bought one. The DVD recorder quit working on all of them shortly after the warranty period ended. We were all left with very expensive VCR's. My sister has since purchased a Panasonic and has been happy. I am going to do the same. LG does nothing to stand behind this product. I will never by an LG product again, and I notified the company of this. DON'T BUY AN LG RECORDER!
 
3 Star Rating  "an average machine that could have been made truly better" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from last seen screaming at Amazon customer service
This combination DVD recorder/player/VCR recorder/player truly deserves a mixed review. On the bright side, it is not hard to use if you want to record a TV program or record a movie off the television at a later time onto a blank DVD-R disc; and it finalizes and plays back a DVD-R with a good quality picture. In addition, once it was hooked up and I could use the remote to program things, my relatively simple needs were met for recording movies off the television onto a blank DVD-R.

However, the sound on DVD-R playback is a bit low; and the manual that comes with this machine is not exactly user-friendly. Even the remote took me some time to learn; and that's not good, either. One more thing: once I learned how to use the remote, it was easy enough to set the timer on the machine to start and stop recording, but once I leave that screen I can only see the date and time it will start recording as well as the number of minutes the machine is programmed to record for. LG doesn't have a DVD main programming screen that specifically indicates the time the machine will stop recording! If I want to see the turn off time again, I must go back into the actual programming screen.

The manual lists a lot of features; I have yet to test them all so it's difficult to comment on all of them. The manual didn't help me much to work with the on-screen menu; but after a brief learning curve I was able to master the on-screen menu without problems. Finalizing a DVD disc takes about the right time which is a plus.

The machine can connect to a TV using a HDMI cable but I didn't hook it up this way because my TV doesn't have a place for the HDMI cable to connect with this machine.

There are other fancy features including playing a DVD while you are still recording onto it; making "playlists" and adding/deleting titles or chapters. I mention this to give you more examples of what the machine is capable of doing even though I personally don't need these features. I certainly hope that if you do get this machine that it works better for you than it did for the people who were so dissatisfied with it!

This is really an average DVD Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder with playback capability and many more features; hopefully LG is making these machines somewhat more reliably by now. Although I don't need the fancier features I do notice that even as a basic machine the sound on playback is too low; the manual is not well-written and the on-screen menus require a bit of a learning curve. All of the DVD program screens should indicate the time the machine will stop recording in addition to the time it starts recording, too, and not just tell you the time it will start recording and total number of minutes it will record off the television. Overall, this may be a good machine for people with very basic needs like myself; but if you must have a DVD/VCR machine that allows you to really work with your DVDs and more, I would recommend that you keep on looking.
