By W. Gonzalez
I purchased this DVD recorder two weeks ago due to a need to replace an aging VCR that had provided many years of excellent service. Since I currently own a Toshiba DVD player and the VCR was a Toshiba,I decided to purchase the DR570, a newer version of the DR670 which was overwhelmingly positively reviewed.
The setup was extremely simple. The built in tuner has made recording easy and the picture quality is amazingly clear. I have not had any problems with the machine locking up or losing settings. I have played DVDs of both TV programs I have recorded as well as feature films. True, the remote does not feature a volume control-- however, neither does my Toshiba DVD player purchased back when video rental stores switched from VHS to DVD.
My only complaint is that loading is a little slow, but all in all I am extremely delighted with my purchase.
