  • What No Kitchen Sink?

    Aug 4, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 160GB HDD, Playback during recording, downloadable firmware, ALL-WRITE technology
    Cons: Doesn't auto set clock and can be finicky about media.

    Summary: I have had the unit for 6 months now. Let's begin with a player that has a downloadable firmware upgrade so you don't have to call the company, explain why you want an upgrade and then have to either take it to their shop or send it to them and wait 2 ... read more

  • Pile of rubbish

    Pros: Fantastic hard drive recorder, ooooooodles of space to save memories, great time shift functions.
    Cons: Forget saving cherished memories to DVD & forget service from the hell line.

    Summary: As previous reviewer said - it doesn't like TDK media - then why the heck did they bundle a 25pack of blank TDK media with the machine? Bought my unit last December. 6 months down the line I decided to transfer some old video memories to DVD. Saved ... read more

  • Started out great, but now have problems

    Jul 13, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of great features and relatively easy to use. Plenty of room on HDD.
    Cons: Reliability of device degraded quickly; poor customer service from Lite On

    Summary: I won't get into the features/details of the device, as other reviews cover that well. In general, when I first bought this device, I was quite happy with it. A few quirks are annoying, but all in all, it did the job well. We used it primarily as a ... read more

  • Great machine!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, price, ease of use. Great recordings!
    Cons: Too minor to mention. Maybe some more tips in the manual.

    Summary: I've had my 5045 for a few days now. It works great and I have had none of the problems mentioned before. It came with firmware rev 0197 which I used for a couple of days with no problems. I tested the timer functions, defrag, etc., as complained about ... read more

  • My experience with LVW-5045 DVD Recorder

    Jul 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great interfaces.
    Cons: none at this or any other prices.

    Summary: It happens that I begin to be a firm believer of those electronic gadgets designed lately by companies in Taiwan. For instance, I own an Acer Laptop, Model Travelmate 370, a GSM handphone, Benq S660C and now a DVD recorder, LiteOn LVW 5045. Taiwan ... read more

  • Good value, no worse than many other units.

    Apr 4, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, picture quality, a 160GB hard drive, relatively quiet operation. Front and rear AV inputs.
    Cons: Minimal editing, remote won't control volume level. OTR recording doesn't power down machine.

    Summary: I've had mine for about three weeks now. Bought it on-line at CostCo for just under $400. Could be better but a decent unit nontheless. The programming is tedious and the editing leaves much to be desired. No A-B delete. You must split the ... read more

    Pros: NONE!
    Cons: Ceased working within 8 months but began acting strangely within 3 or 4.

    Summary: I purchased this in January 2006 and it worked great, for awhile. After about 6 months it started to get very fussy about what brand and type of DVDs I could record on. Even the ones listed on their recommended brands list didn't work. Then it started to ... read more

    Pros: Lots of space on the hard drive, fully featured and easy to use.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I have bought the lieon 5045 and I never been happier, it is easy to use with a lot of space on the hard drive, it can record from almost anything and it allows me not to miss any moment of the action through the time shift recording function all this ... read more
