[QUOTE=godfather_77;2128623]I have been having problems with my Samsung vr-330 dvd recorder/VCR player so thinking of replacing. I am wondering if it would be better in terms of DVD recorder quality to get a standalone and then just get a VCR player? In other word do standalone DVD recorders tend to be better than when in combo format?[/QUOTE]
Go for the separate DVD recoder and VCR less to go wrong, more flexable and less problems when dubbing protected tapes.
