My panasonic DVD player started freezing up on me so it was time for a new one, I decided to try a DVD recorder with built in VHS.
I got it at sears for $149, tried recording with it and it is a snap and it records great. It is much easier to transfer my VHS to DVD than importing them into my computer and burning them with my BENQ1620. The only thing I didn’t care for is that you can only use DVD-R or DVD-RW, all I use is +R so I had to pick up a spool. If you try to fit more that 4 hours on a disc, the quality reall drops off.
