  • Yet another disappointment

    Feb 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: component in, stereo tuner, VCR plus, NTSC/PAL support, region hack, good sound.
    Cons: Poor picture, poor tuner, lousy operation, needs a firmware upgrade, lousy customer service.

    Summary: I decided to exchange the Samsung DVD-R135 for this Philips DVDR3400, which was about $30 less. After being a loyal Philips fan for many, many years, I was very unhappy with the last recorder I tried the Philips DVDR615. Because of that I was very ... read more

  • Good Machine

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, reliable and records DL DVD's.
    Cons: The remote control is difficult.

    Summary: I had a Philips before my recent purchase of the same model, and loved it. It was a work horse, since I use video clips on my blog. Recording quality is very good, if you record at the two higher speeds, although SPplus wasn't all ... read more

    Pros: user friendly
    Cons: picture quality, if that's what you're looking for

    Summary: I received the Philips DVDR 3400 as a birthday gift this year and so far have had no problems with it and it has been since January. The menu and interface is user friendly and the instructions were easy to follow. I am no electronics master and am not ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound quality seemed to be pretty good.
    Cons: Poor picture quality, HDMI issues, remote feels very cheap.

    Summary: I bought this product because it had several features which I liked: HDMI and Component output, built in tuner, and the ability to record. I use an Infocus projector (which by the way I very happy with). I liked the idea of connecting via HDMI, ... read more

    Pros: Plays DVD's and collects dust
    Cons: Constantly reminded that I paid money for this

    Summary: I bought this over a year ago and it never worked from the beginning. Philips put firmware updates on its website, but they seemed to create bigger problems. They finally posted the last update in July 2007. I'm left with a DVD recorder that plays, but ... read more

  • From bad to worse

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks kinda nice?
    Cons: Defective straight out of the box

    Summary: Bought this in February 2007 to replace the Toshiba DRW2 that quit on me after a month. This Philips DVDR3400 didn't get even that far. Right out of the box the DVD drive wouldn't recognize any kind of DVD -- R, RW, +, -, not even factory-pressed movies. ... read more

  • WARNING - You want crap? - buy DVDR3400

    Pros: Worked well for a total of two months.
    Cons: Want to buy something that will last you only a short time -be my guest.

    Summary: I will make this short and sweet. This is the worse piece of crap I have ever owned. Operated a total of 2 months. Then it would no longer read anything that placed inside of it. Returned for warranty. Philips has now had this unit for almost as long as ... read more

    Pros: Plays movies from a USB Flash Drive
    Cons: DVDs recorded in unit will not play in either of my two computers.

    Summary: I recently purchased a DVDR3400 and I have tried two types of media so far DVD+R and DVD-R and both will not play in either of my two computers. We have an RCA DVDR also and any DVD I record in it plays on every PC I have tried it in.To bad I really ... read more

  • Wont play certain movies

    Pros: none
    Cons: see Review

    Summary: I bought the Philips DVDR3400/37 at the beginning of December 2006. On Christmas, I received the movie Talladega Nights, the Ballad of Ricky Bobby. This machine will not play it. It will go through the menus and trailers, but will lock up at 0:03 seconds ... read more

  • Terrible!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Decent price ($125 at Best Buy).
    Cons: Cannot change screen format unless a recordable DVD is in the player. Bad design.

    Summary: The ability to plug a flash drive in the front and record from it seems like a great idea. The advertised versatility for all DVD formats looks great. ... read more
