    I have been copying segments of tapes made by my Sony handycams (one analog and one digital on tape)and the results provide very good quality images. So far, I have made 15 discs and the machine has worked flawlessly. I had a frustrating experience with a competitors model two years ago, so I was hesitant to buy any DVD recorder after that experience and reading all the troubles people are reporting eith other brands. But, based on the reviews posted here, I decided to take a chance on this mfr and model.

    First, the unit allows pausing during the recording so I can go forwards and backwards on the handycam to do scene sequencing. My earlier adventure required shutting the DVD recorder off in order to do that, with the resultant video and audio flutter and broken images on re-start of the recording. This one does it seamlessly!!!

    I also copy TV programs from my DVR's hard disk drive onto DVDs so that I have a permanent copy. I do this manually. I set up the DVD recorder, select the DVR show, hit Record and Play, and the copying starts. I leave the room while it copies and use a kitchen timer to know when to go back and turn off the DVD unit.

    I will say that the unit has alot of features I will never use (like timer recording) and the instruction manual naturally has to cover everything, so it is an imposing document. BUT..it has to be one of the most understandable and logical manuals ever produced. They really put an effort into step by step procedures for each operation. Applicable steps are shown next to a picture of the remote on which the applicable keys are darkened. Very nice idea for us normal humans. As others have mentioned, read through the manual to get a feel for its organization, note the glossary and index, and then begin to enter language, date, and other preferences per the sequence in the manual. I was impressed that Toshiba listed EXACTLY what discs to get. They have several manufacturer's and speed listed, which I followed. I was not sure about the differences between R factors. Mystery about plus, minus, and RW is clarified on a nice table for the user. I used the big online store to order the specific brand discs. So far, I think this is an excellent choice in DVD recorders for my purpose.

    I did make my own set of steps/choices for formatting and recording and finalizing. That way I do not have to have the manual at hand.

    The doors to both the DVD and VHS drives did not open. The Toshiba phone number that came with the product for customer support connected you to a computer message telling you to go to a website. The website in turn told you to call the number already given. I had to call the number for laptop customer support to actually speak to a human being who in turn gave me a working # for the DVD/VHS Recorder support. After all this I was told the problem was obviously mechanical (I had managed to figure that out on my own) and instructed me to return the item to B&H for an even exchange. Customer support at B&H- unlike Toshiba- was easy to reach and has been working to resolve the issue (they were unfortunately out of stock so unless they have a comperable item, I will be refunded). B&H has very good customer support and I will shop with them again. I will however not be looking at Toshiba products. The product and Toshiba's customer support did not rate the single star I gave but no star was not an option. B&H customer service rates a 5 star.

    Very Versatile

    By Kevin C.

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Toshiba DVR620 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo:

    Our family has had a few of these devices in the past. The probem was that they either never had all the desired features or were very selective as to the media they would record on. This machine does everything we need and has no problem recording to DVD R+ or R-, no matter what the speed rating. Great device.

        Bought this system to convert a number of old VHS and VHS-C tapes to DVD. Works with out any problems. Play the tapes pause the VHS playback click on DVD mode then rec mode then dubbing and waiting for the tape to play as it writes to DVD. Once the DVD fills with (multiple storage lengths can be selected for DVD, 2 hours for best quality) video just finalize the DVD to play in other devices.

                  Easy to follow, good instructions for the everyday user. I'm using it to convert videos to dvds. Simple steps and good remote. However, some of the store-bought (blank) videos show a white vertical bar on the side(s)of the stuff I taped off television. Not such a big deal for me, but purists may not like that and I'm not really sure if it is because all these videos were recorded on previous vcrs and are older (?).

                              Tape got tangled up inside the machine the first time I tried to record from VHS to DVD. What a junk.

                                    My brother loves to watch & record on vhs. the dvd recording is new to him. He liked the picture and how easy it is to use. it linked up to his cable and tv with ease. I liked the unit and need an upgrade myself. have a blu-ray but want to record dvds. Also present vhs is old. I gave this item as a gift.
