Experience: 28 Days
Strengths: A wonderful piece of equipment. I have used it to make DVD's from older VHS family tapes, copy tapes from Digital Camcorder and downloaded DVD from Final Cut Pro using firewire. All were great.
Weaknesses: Audio does not play while recording from firewire. Firewire is only input
Summary: Great equipment for the price. Product is very easy to use and Audio or Video is very easy to record. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a lower end DVD recorder non in a computer. Works well with all media.
