Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After buying 2 similar units (a Sony and a Magnavox) and returning them both, I was skeptical that this would be The One. Well, so far, this unit has performed very well in all areas. We record most of our TV shows to watch later so a tuner was important so that we could watch another program (or go to work) while recording one or more. So far, recording to DVD-R or to VHS has been successful with fairly simple instructions. The various menus are a little different at first but they make sense after a few times. Setup and channel preset were very easy and efficient. The remote is, of course, itsy bitsy, but it could be worse and they do include batteries! I have dubbed a few VHS tapes to DVD-R with success - they look better than the originals in most cases. I am also discovering the joys of recording a TV program to a DVD-RW instead of a VHS tape. DVD viewing is great and it also plays audio CDs quite well although I wish it could read the track information instead of simply...
We have had this unit about a month, but it is the best we have owned, and we have gone through about 5 combo units. It would not come on using channels 2,3 or 4, so I called customer service, told a very nice man my problem, and he told me to set input to AV. Have had no problem since. It records from TV to VHS & DVD using timer recordings, it copies from VHS to DVD & DVD to VHS & the picture qualities on all are perfect. The menu is simple and easy to use, and the instruction manuel is easy to use and it is in English!JVC DRMV100B 1080p Upconverting DVD Recorder VCR Combo with Built In Tuner
I spent days researching brands and prices for DVD/VHS combo recorders. This JVC model wasn't the cheapest, but it had the most positive reviews. Now it has one more. I didn't know how hard it would be to find a quality, affordable model with a built in tuner. Without the tuner, you can't watch a different channel than you are recording. I found that the manual was easy to read and understand. Even if it wasn't, the screens allow easy set-up and navigation. The remote control is easy to navigate also. I don't remember the brand, but my previous combo recorder was a nightmare in so many ways, including performance. Only one word of caution. Don't buy any blank DVDs until you purchase your recorder. They don't all accept all brands of media. As an addendum to my first comment of elation, after only a few uses, movies began to "hang" towards the end. I either have to switch to my 7" portable DVD player to watch the last 30 mins or so of a movie, or I just don't bother and watch...
