HASH(0xa6f3fc9c) out of 5 stars Perfect replacement for a VCR (plus good upconverting DVD player) April 17 2009
By DEREK MCCARTHY - Published on

This unit is really great! We recently got a 40" HD TV and needed a replacement for the VCR -- we wanted to record shows (and On-Demand movies) at a good enough quality for HD viewing.

One option was DVR from Comcast for $10/month (which might or might not allow recording of On-Demand movies and transfer to computer for disc-burning). Another option was using a computer with a video acquisition device and record to hard drive. The third option was this unit for $110, delivered, from Amazon -- hands down the most practical choice.

Though this unit doesn't record in true HD resolution, the quality is about the same (in 2 hour mode, 16x9) as regular 16x9 enhanced DVDs. At first I was worried the recorded discs might not play on other DVD players; but they did, no problem at all on any of our equipment (that is, after the recording is finalized). The recording time for a DVD-R disc (on high quality mode) was 2 hours and 8 minutes. (On lower quality modes, it's 4+ hours and 8+ hours.)

Navigating the menu system is easy enough, and each recorded disk is given a simple menu with the various recordings available to choose from (which by default have the date & time of recording as the title, but can be renamed).

Upconversion of commercial DVDs is quite good (enough so that we're not that motivated to get a Blu-Ray player yet ;-).

Our only complaints (which are very minor) are that the tray-eject is a little slow & noisy and that there isn't component video inputs (just composite video & S-Video inputs). But it was easy enough to hook up to our cable box (or TV) to record from their outputs.

This will be a great unit to have until Blu-Ray recorders become less expensive.

I bought this unit after reveiwing other brands on the Amazon web pages. I wanted to copy from Tivi to DVD.Nice owners guide and physical looks. The tray opens just like other players with a little noise, no big deal! It does take awhile to finallize your dvd copys but, no big deal. Component out only,no cable terninals,no tuner. the recording light on the front is real tiny.On screen menu is good. For my use this recorder is perfect.

HASH(0xa63d40d8) out of 5 stars Go ahead and get it July 2 2009

I bought this DVD recorder to convert my old VHS home movies into DVD's. I had it up and running in no time. It is extremely easy to use. I had shopped around before buying because I wanted something easy and something that would work well. If you are thinking about getting a DVD recorder, but are unsure... rest assured, this is a great recorder. I'm extremely happy with it.

HASH(0xa65b0f3c) out of 5 stars Died before it was ever used! June 11 2009

I had this unit for less than 3 weeks. Hooked it up, but never got the chance to even use it! One night it just simply wouldn't turn on, and the unit would'nt open. Called Toshiba for help - The warranty on page 101 stated that it would be replaced with a new or reconditioned unit. I was told that was a "typo" and that I would have to send the unit in for repair. Luckily, I had puchased it from Amazon and they have a good return policy. I will look for another unit to replace this one.

I am very satisfied withe the DR420. It is simple to use the One Touch Recording function. Recording quality is very good. And the upscale playback feature works very well. It is not Bluetooth but serves my purpose very well. I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting to record programs video programs.
