  • Skip This Review and Your DVD Player Might Skip On YOU!

    Jun 13, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It has both a DVD player and a VCR!
    Cons: And both of them stop working after 6 months!

    Summary: Do you enjoy watching movies wherein the director decides to jump back and forth through time several minutes (or hours, depending on the level of Quentin Tarantino’s involvement)? Many people do. But what happens when your DVD player decides that it ... read more

  • Basically a Paperweight

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, consistent operation for about a year
    Cons: Sylvania should be ashamed of themselves

    Summary: After reading some of the reviews of this product here, I have to agree with many of them. I have had a very, very similar experience with this product. I too bought this at Sam's Club for about $120 (back in May 2003). For the first year or so, I was ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Price: $102
    Cons: Can't copy DVDs to VCR.

    Summary: I bought mine back in November 2003 from SAM's for about $100. When I went shopping that day I had intended to buy just a DVD player but I saw this combo unit for about $30 more I thought what the heck (I had been thinking about getting a separate VCR as ... read more

    Pros: Convenience, reasonable price
    Cons: Poor quality

    Summary: I bought this unit at Sam's Club a few years ago because it was convenient to have the DVD and VCR together.  I bought it for occasional use as we have a dedicated DVD player. Preferred a name brand to an unknown or store brand. Wrongly assumed I ... read more

    Pros: Price; DVD quality and playback
    Cons: VCR performance not great

    Summary: Not sure what all the confusion is about DVD playback. It's worked fine on all fronts. DVD's, VCR playback, record, and timer, all very simple and straightforward, no problems at all. VCR is not great quality but it's adequate and comparable to price ... read more

    Pros: There are none.
    Cons: unreliable,hard to use,poor customer service.

    Summary: I bought this player new November 2004 at Sams Club. It is hardly used due to the fact it is hard to program compared to the RCA units I have. After owning it for 6 months,it decided not to play any dvd's. The player will eject the dvd every time one is ... read more

  • Piece of Junk

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap, plays CD and MP3, stylish
    Cons: very unreliable

    Summary: I bought this DVD/VCR at Sam's club in June 2004, trusting the quality products the shop carry at a very reasonable price. I am so disappointed that after 6 months of low-mileage usage, it started to eat tapes. At first, I thought it was the tapes that ... read more

  • Not a reliable DVD player

    Mar 30, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Unreliable, complicated, no support.

    Summary: I don't care much about the VCR, which apparently is difficult to program. My problem with this model is that it has trouble playing certain DVDs that I record, even though every other DVD player I use can read them just fine. Funai (the manufacturer) ... read more

  • A Bad Choice

    Pros: None.
    Cons: The complicated system to see DVDs. The VCR never recorded, eats tapes and ruins them.

    Summary: This is a complete disaster and I would not recommend it to anyone. It has complicated system to see DVDs and takes numerous punches on the remote to respond. The VCR never recorded anything and continually eats tapes and ruins them. The Customer Service ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Hard to program

    Summary: Ok, I must admit I decided to go with the cheaper model of DVD/VCR Combos, and it looks like I'm going to be paying for it. The VCR is hard to program, you have to go through a lot of button pushing to get what you want done. My old VCR was pretty easy ... read more

    Pros: Good fast forward on DVD, Low price.
    Cons: Hard to use, almost impossible to timer record.

    Summary: I bought mine at Sam's club for under $90. The buttons on this unit and on the remote are unique, as if they were designed by someone who had never seen a VCR or used one before. It is is hard to use and and extremely hard to program. It took me ... read more
