Type of review

Apparently this device was not tested before shipping. That does not work. There was no working remote control so most of the features couldn't even be tested. The seller is required to set up, test and have all functions working of this unit before attempting to sell again and if all functions do not work then it should not be resold. The seller helped, but sent a non-working one.

DVD Recorder Panasonic DMR ES35VS VCR Combo

Bought used 10 days ago via Revain. I was concerned as it was marked as 'obsolete'. But my previous DVD recorder was ten years old and just stopped working. So I wanted a similar model even though they don't seem to make it anymore. NEGATIVE: It has a few scratches and was delivered a few days later than stated. PLUS: Plays DVD and VHS very well. The recording is clear and flawless. I am so glad I made this purchase.

  • Useful for more than it's intended purpose
  • Ugly packaging

DVD/VCR combo that works

I bought this used DVD/VCR combo 2007 or 9 years ago. (I could tell someone bought and used it before because there were porn titles that person saved!) Having a few videotapes that I enjoy watching, I love having this option, especially after I recently heard they are being discontinued. Production of video recorders. I also like watching DVDs on it. Although it takes a lot of time, I was able to copy some videotapes that are important to me to DVD. So buy it now while you still can!

  • Great for a small home

Great car! in DVD players and recorders

I bought this product a year ago and am very happy with its performance. I haven't had the slightest problem with the machine for over a year and use it to record every day. I usually record on DVD, but sometimes I use VHS, especially when I'm not at home. This gives me 12 hours of recording when using both. I burn weekly programs to DVD-RAM to watch for a week and then delete the title. It's a simple process that I love. Setting up a recording schedule is quick. You also have the option to…

Waste of time and money $ :-(

Bought this for my dad. Tomorrow is his birthday. He has over 400 VHS tapes that he wanted to convert after just a couple of batteries because the remote does NOT worked to turn the player on and off. From the days of dial-up internet connection. We gave up after 2 minutes. In one video, the menu finally appeared, but when you press "play" on car or remote, it not working. VHS site doesn't seem to be working either. Very disappointed it was claimed to be refurbished. Obviously nobody checked…

Nice DVR-VCR but terrible instructions

Plays both VHS and DVD. I can copy videocassettes to DVD (which was my main reason for buying the device). I haven't tried ripping TV shows straight to DVD before, and I haven't had a chance to try other features. User Manual TERRIBLE! The instructions for ripping and burning DVDs, setting up TV channels, etc. are very complicated and I'm technically minded. The connection to the cable box as shown in the manual is also wrong because the cable is connected directly. into the VCR/DVD box, where…
