Hi, guys, and I’m hoping a few CDFreaks can come to my rescue on this.
I’m looking a good VCR/DVD combo unit. I had tried to find a unit where the VHS side will record to VHS, and the DVD side only plays DVDs. I’ve found indications on the 'net there are units like this, but I have not found one yet. About all I have come up with that comes close to this really isn’t close. Here’s the limited amount I’ve found:
PV-V4525S 4-Head VCR is excellently reviewed online and at Amazon; however, this is only a VCR Recorder.
I’m not interested in a dual VCR/DVD recorder that is bi-directional for this purchase, as I’m trying to find just the VCR Recorder/DVD player combo. I found some older Samsung model, but it appeared to come out in Nov 2002, and that’s too old. I’m looking for something that’s far more recent, say at least manuf’d Sept 2005. In other words, I would also like to find a unit that plays the standard DVD formats, especially formats you burn on your computer DVD burner (DVD+R/-R, bitset DVD-ROM, including CD/MP3, etc.)
I’ll keep looking, but I would seriously hope some CDFreak knows of one. Surely there is a combo unit like I’ve specified that is ~$ 80 (and I’m in the U.S.). Any quick (but knowledgable) suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
