Is anyone familiar with this model?
I tried goggling but all the threads I found were just the basic quality is good or bad, this feature is good or bad kind of thing. I was wondering if anyone had one and might have some tips (media it likes, tips to get it to burn decent etc). I suppose I'll just start with verbatim's and see what I get.
I was kind of thinking I could use it as a dvr too. If I understand right it can record scheduled tv to dvdr/rw.
Fyi, the reason I bought it without researching it first, was that I got it refurbed for 28$. I don't really need a stand alone dvd recorder which is why I don't have one yet (I can do anything it can do on computers). They sell for 170$ new at wallmart and sell for 80-100$ refurbed at my work. So we got a returned broken one (broken vcr according to the customer) and I figured I could still use the dvd recorder. It cannot be sent back so the manager sold it to me for 35$ (plus 20% employee discount). Turns out it was completely dead. I tried my luck with the warranty, and got a replacement refurb in working order. I figure it might be able to do some things faster/easier than doing it on the computer?
