Multi-Format Compatibility
This unit has full playback capabilities including DVD Video, DVD+R/RW (VR format), CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW (video format).
User-Friendly
Several standard features on this combo unit make viewing simple and easy to command. When watching DVDs, take advantage of subtitle displays, zoom option (2x, 4x), and virtual surround sound option, which simulates the experience of surround sound using a 2-channel system. Convenient VCR features include a high speed search, auto head cleaner, and repeat playback.
Progressive Scan
This unit features a progressive scan DVD player which scans a whole video frame at once. This means scan lines are reduced and you get an exceptionally clear picture. This familiar technology eliminates any type of picture artifacts commonly associated with interlaced video, so you get the best picture possible when you watch your favorites.

Still Frame and Slow Motion
Easily pause video, creating a still frame until you resume play. Also activate slow motion feature at the touch of a button.
Parental Lock
This feature grants parents full control of media content and is ideal for family households. DVD software rating levels are manually set and playback is stopped if the ratings exceed the set levels. So it conveniently prevents the unit from playing material that is inappropriate for children.

      I hooked this DVD/VCR PLAYER up to my television and it was a simple proceedure.
      I don't have a cable box, per se, so The VCR doesn't record, not having a tv tuner in it, unless I am watching while recording.
      Not a problem for me, we hardly ever record anything anyhow, as we bought it so that we could watch our many VHS tapes and also our DVDs with one unit, one input to the tv and eliminate a RF MODULATOR.
      Good value and very nice picture.

      I bought this unit because I have an old Magnavox VCR/DVD combo which I am very happy with. But this one left a lot to be desired. The playback is not real sharp because it does not have the 1080p upconversion. But the real problem is the remote which has grey writing on a grey background so you can't tell what most of the buttons are for. I ended up returning the unit.

      Because of Grandson's help. the Magnavox player

      was made operable. Patron should be advised before

      purchase that the new unit may not be compatible

      with older TV equipment.

                I was having trouble finding a company that still sold DVD/VCR players when I found you all. I ask some questions, was answered promptly and ordered the player that same day. You all told me that it would be delivered in two days and it arrived as promised and in good condition. It plays well. My daughter, who is 13, has enjoyed it from day one. Thank you for treating me as a customer and not just a sale. God bless.

                          This DVD/VCR Combo Player works really well and is very easy to use . It is made of a very light plastic though so don't put anything heavy on top of it. The Remote Control is very simplle and easy to use also but the numbers and symbols on it are a light grey rather than black and in dark rooms or with older people it is sometimes hard to read. They could fix that easily and I wish they would. My mother is 94 and it would sure help her.

                          I got this for Christmas in 2010 in the original packaging. It was brand new and just over a year after I got it the dvd player has stopped working. I put any disc in and it won't even read it. The word stop shows up at the top of the screen and it does the same when there isn't even a disc in there. I have tried every thing to fix it and it won't work!

                                                Good combo player for the money. Not particularly attractive but works well. Glad I bought it.

                                                    My third purchase from B & H, and I am happy with this, as always. Hard to find VCR/DVD combos now, and at this price, this is a steal. I only received this a little over a week ago and have just used the DVD part so far, but all is well. I had a friend of mine hook it up to my TV and Verizon FIOS box since I cannot do anything without screwing it up. He had it done in no time.

                                                      I have been looking for a duel VCR/DVD player for some time. I am very pleased with the easy
                                                      operation. I bought this to be used in a guest bedroom but I am thinking of exchangeing it for the one in my bedroom! Besides, I use it every day in my room and seldom have guests!

                                                          We installed the player and tried it out. The VCR is quite noisy while playing a video tape. I'm hoping it will not be so after it's played for a while.

                                                            my old vhs player had been giving trouble and still too many vhs tapes to switch completely to dvd, so I bought this unit - it works pretty good, and was about the cheapest I could find
