  • Looks good at first, but...

    Jan 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: high speed dubbing
    Cons: incomplete digital synchronization

    Summary: If you were to bring home the Philips CDR765BK, you would definitely be happy with its ability to record a complete CD in half the time of the original. Many people who purchase CDRs, however, also want to make compilation discs with various artists. ... read more

  • Philips cdr765: Not built for the long-haul

    Jul 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use.
    Cons: Over-priced considering how finicky, picky & inconsistent it is.

    Summary: I purchased the unit in 12-99. As of mid 2004, I could no longer use the system for recording, as it became horribly inconsistant & routinely crapped-out before the copying was complete, or during the finalization process (botching the $2 cdr in both ... read more

  • Bad Hardware

    Aug 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None, really.
    Cons: Stuttering at beginning of every song. Target CD often stops in the middle of recording.

    Summary: This is really bad hardware. Bad interface (what the **** is "Dubb"), poor performance (plan to throw away 1/10th of the CD-Rs you buy), and false advertising (I've never found a CDRW this machine recognizes). Can only record analog thru the amplifier ... read more

    Pros: Fairly easy to use
    Cons: Breaks faster than a $20 bill!

    Summary: My partner and I have a band and were looking for a reasonably priced CD recorder to duplicate our demo CDs and to make compilations to play during breaks. He found the Philips model at Best Buy and picked it up for us. It was an opened box model so we ... read more

    Pros: Convenience, easy to use, saves money if you use it enough
    Cons: Double speed is still too slow for me

    Summary: Since I was a little kid and I purchased my first cd, I always wanted to record onto cd. Just last year, I purchased the Phillips CDR765BK cd recorder. Right from the start, I was amazed at the ease of recording a cd. I learned how to record from disc to ... read more

  • Hope it Doesn't Break

    Jun 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Basic functions easy to use.
    Cons: Advanced features are difficult. Hard to repair.

    Summary: For the better part of a year I enjoyed the 765 and it did an OK job recordings cds. Philips made it easy for the consumer by allowing the user to drop in the media and source and press two buttons to begin recording. The drawbacks come when you want to ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: When it works, great sound
    Cons: Pathetically poor customer service

    Summary: In December of 1999, I purchased a Philips CDR 770. At the point of purchase, the Salesperson strongly advised me to buy an extended warranty. I did not: Big mistake. The cd burner quickly developed a habit of ceasing to record during ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, quick to learn, copies well.
    Cons: expensive CDRs, inability to control the second tray via remote.

    Summary: Well, I had heard of the possibility of making my own music CDs but had thought that was reserved to those out there who have awesome computers and extra money to spend. Fortunately, I had also heard of Phillips-Magnovox's CDR component stereo parts. ... read more

    Pros: dubbing without another digital out cd player
    Cons: no optical digital outputs

    Summary: I bought the Philips 765 CD recorder as a returned item at Best Buy for only $226! The only shortcoming I could see was the fact that there were no optical digital outputs, only coaxial. Also, after testing the unit, I found that it was a little bit ... read more

    Pros: Great quality
    Cons: Can't record seconds into a song

    Summary: I have always wanted to record cd to cd. I loved making mixes of my music, but hated the quality of a tape. They would break, the sound was lispy, and every once in a while they would deteriorate and the sound would break up. When this bad boy ... read more

    Cons: performance

    Summary: I have bought and returned the Philips CDR-765bk twice. I bought it at Best Buy. First it had a drawer that stuck and then after waiting a month for the repair of it, they told me they could get no parts for it. They gave me a second one from stock and ... read more

    Pros: great features (dubbing), record from other sources
    Cons: high price and computer burners are a little better
