    Pros: Cover for Front RCA Inputs, 12 Hour AM/PM Time, Plays JPEG, MP3, & WMA CD's.

    Pros: 3 A/V inputs. Easy to use.
    Cons: Two consecutive machines broke in identical manner. Failed primary function!

    Pros: Good quality, All good features, good price.
    Cons: Extremely difficult to use.

    Pros: Lot's of features - if it worked.
    Cons: Long start up time. No DVD+ support.

    Summary: I must have gotten a defective unit. After a week or 2 the unit wouldn't play back any of my recorded DVD-R's, even the ones that it recorded itself. The display on the TV just says 'loading' for a looooong time, during which time it's incommunicable. ... read more
