: : : : : Just saw ad for Sansui VCR/DVD Recorder. Records and plays DVD-R/RW-encoded disks. 4-Head Hi-Fi stereo VCR. Can't find any specs. Been looking a long time for DVD/VCR combo that makes it easy to copy VCR (home movies) to DVD. Any info. out there?

: : : : I have been looking for the same thing. I assume you are looking at the SEARS ad? Doubt we will find answers. I am still confused about what problems I cause myself if I buy (-)r/rw instead of (+) r/rw technology. And, I read that some VCR/DVD devices do show bad degradation of quality when the tape is transfered from vcr tape to dvd. Surely, you do not think the clerks at SEARS would know the answers??? NOT.

: :
: : : I bought one of those units, yesterday. Go to the Sears web site and look at the specs page for more info. It seems fairly straight forward as to use/operation. Records DVD to VHS, VHS to DVD. Haven't tried transfering from one to the other, yet.

: : Have just purchased unit from Sears. One problem i encountered was it failed to record on the DVD when attempting to record a future program in the timer mode.

: I'm thinking about purchasing this DVDR combo VHS system. Would you recommend it or should we wait to see if other companies come out with one? I had never heard of Sansui before. What quality is this brand? What other brand does it compare to? Phillips? Sony? Thanks for your input.

I bought the Sansui VRDVD4005 unit from Sears, and used it to copy a home movie from VHS to DVD. The quality was pretty good. Does anyone know if I can use any brand DVD-R? Some DVD-R's sell for as little as $0.69 and others for close to $3.00 each. What is the difference? Can this machine use any DVD-R?
