What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has been a dud since purchase The disc player has only worked twice since purchasing the system. It doesn't acknowledge DVD at all I have contacted the company numerous times to no avail

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really happy with the results So far I have transferred all of my VHS to DVD & I have also recorded all of my video footage off both of my video cameras. 1 from small cassette tapes & the other from a hard drive. All DVDs have played well in the DVD player with excellent sound. Can't work out how to record from USB to DVD. The only negative is that the instruction manual is too vague. There is a lot of guesswork involved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from question When do I transfer video tape to disc, and then I put the dvd in the computer, I can not find the file that I'm moving , and also , is it possible to transfer the film from the dvd to the usb directly through the device , or convert from tape to usb

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Disaster - it just would not work properly A disaster and a waste of time. WE got two screens on the TV separated by a black band. No colour no audio. The DVD would not play nor would the video tape. I returned the dud to the store and plugged in another DVD which worked perfectly first off. stay away from the LG DVD video combo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not record from DTV to DVD and VIDEO tape I bought this machine new 5 months ago, and has been okay to transfer some VHS to DVD, although some VHS which were playing so well with the old LG VCR, cannot be played as the picture is all red and the manual tracking cannot fix it... This machine did record from DTV to blank video tape, but for some reason by now it does not anymore...after little use, the 'REC' icon does not show up ! Also does not record from digital TV #DVT# to blank and new DVD-RW 4x #Verbatim# and to DVD-R 16x whether formatted or not…’finalized’ or not… The ‘REC’ icon comes on, but does NOT record on DVD disc. Will be returned to shop very soon if the problem cannot be fixed. At this stage I cannot recommend the product in giving only one star, but if it can be fixed, may three to four stars would perhaps do...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Helicopter Machine I bought one of these machines a few weeks ago as i was super excited to transfer all of my baby tapes to DVD and not have to worry about them getting damaged or paying a high price to get it done professionally. The machine looks sleek and stylish but the helicopter noise it makes when playing a VHS isn't so sleek in my books. It's not extremely loud, but noticeable enough especially when watching the DVD footage back with earphones in ( and yes the noise gets copied to the recorded DVD). I don't know why LG didn't notice this before they put this machine on the market or why they haven't made any efforts to alter this noise the machine makes before any more of them get to the stores, but it's very disappointing and certainly not worth $349. So to LG, listen up: THIS MACHINE MAKES HELICOPTER NOISES, EVERYONE IS SAYING IT SO FIX IT OTHERWISE EVERYONE WILL KEEP TAKING IT BACK FOR A REFUND LIKE I HAD TO. Other than that, it's a fantastic machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dvd/vcr combo I bought it last week but when I play dvd i only get a small picture and not a full screen . Other dvd i have had i could adjust it but having read the instruction booklet could not find a solution to this problem. Bought it mainly because I wanted to trf VHS tapes to DVD and vcrs play well with no problems. Had a LG vcr for 14 years but was not worth repairing it. Can I record digital TV programs ? I use HDMI cable
