  • Very Finicky Unit

    Nov 21, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Menu. Excellent Price. Works well when on the right DVD Diet.
    Cons: Lousy Manual. Only records with Memorex Disks.

    Summary: After reading the Epinions posts, I decided to take a big risk and buy one of these at Fry's Alpharetta Grand Opening for $87. It was refurbished so I figured that even if it wouldn't record DVDs it would work for playback. I already have a Panasonic ... read more

  • RCA DRC8312N DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

    May 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Records to VHS Tape OK.
    Cons: Nothing else works with any consistency.

    Summary: I bought this device in August of 2005 and have had recording and copying problems ever since. The unit will copy to the VCR tape OK, and will initially copy from the VCR tape to the DVD disc. Then the trouble begins. After copying to about 80% of the ... read more

    Pros: It got me acquainted with new egg customer service department.
    Cons: It got me acquainted with new egg customer service department.

    Summary: I looked into all units available. Since I am an electronics engineering consultant and previously (long ago) an engineer in color TV research at RCA David Sarnoff Labs (which would normally make me pro RCA, if anything), I spotted the time base ... read more

  • Plays everything well - DVD recording does not work

    Apr 25, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Plays with good quality, Easy menu
    Cons: Reacts slow to commands, hard to use remote. Does not record to DVDs at all.

    Summary: As a combo player only I have had no problems. It has the best quality picture on store bought/rented tapes and my older tapes than any other players I've owned. It also records and plays it's own VHS tapes ok. The hitch is that it will not record to a ... read more

  • RCA DRC8312N is a Piece of Crap

    Pros: RCA DRC8312N is a Piece of Crap
    Cons: RCA DRC8312N is a Piece of Crap

    Summary: Same problems as all of the other reviewers!!! The only DVD's I could get to work "sometimes" are Imation but often they would not finalize. I just bought a 50 pack of Maxell DVD+R disks that wont work at all. How can RCA get away with selling a product ... read more

    Pros: playback is great and machine is easy to use
    Cons: will not record current shows

    Summary: I bought this machine to record current tv shows to watch at a later time. Due to copyright protection the machine is useless. It will not record any of the current ... read more

    Pros: Only the price, I guess
    Cons: It just doesn't work

    Summary: The previous reviewers were lucky, somehow they managed to burn at least one DVD. All I got was a bunch of dead DVD+R/RW discs of three different brands. The recorder accepts normally a blank disc and displays "Copying" during the process, but at the end ... read more

  • Same experience

    Dec 29, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Won't stop copying

    Summary: I had the same troubling experience of the previous reviewers. It worked great the first two times and then would not stop copying when told so. Waisted a lot of time and disks. I guess its back to the store with this bad ... read more

  • It worked as intended...once--period.

    Pros: The price was right--if it had worked well.
    Cons: Burned one DVD in a VHS transfer...and that was all she wrote.

    Summary: My experience was the same as the two prior reviews. I bought it specifically to transfer home VHS movies to DVD. The setup was not particularly difficult and I was able to burn the first DVD with no problem. On the second attempt to burn a new DVD ... read more

  • Great Recorder

    Pros: Heavy so good quality :)
    Cons: Does not skip commercials.

    Summary: I bought this recorder from Office Max on sale for 199.95. I bought it to copy my old VHS tapes to DVD. I love how easy it is to use once you get the hang of it. The booklet is a little complicated although it is really very easy to use when used in ... read more

    Pros: Really none other than price.
    Cons: Horrible quality.

    Summary: Same story as other guy. Purchased at Officemax. Unit froze on third DVD transfer and two more attempts after that. Exchanged it and the new one immediately started to freeze up, and had a bad DVD ... read more

    Pros: Price was good and when it worked it worked well.
    Cons: It acts as if it likes a disposable camera. One use and its all over.

    Summary: I bought one of these on sale from OfficeMax (I know, you're thinking "since when does OfficeMax sale home theater stuff). I had it about 2 weeks before I tried using the VHS to DVD capabilities. The first 2 times I used it, it worked great. I was ... read more
