Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product The only thing keeping me from rating this recorder as great is the fact that it does not record onto DL DVD-R, does not allow you to make precise edits and will not allow you to choose an image/scene to be your video thumbnail. There are several recorders out there which will do all of this...this is not one of them. Other than these cons though, this is a good recorder. It is very easy to use, compact and quiet. Additionally...and this may be a fluke, it is permitting me to make fast dubs on edited vids...according to the manual, it will NOT allow you to do this...you can only make fast dubs on non-edited vids. Maybe I just got lucky and got one with a " flaw " in it...but I can definitely make fast dubs on edited vids as well as non-edited vids. One drawback to its fast dubbing though...it eats up more space on your DVD than the video should. For example, if you have a blank DL DVD set to XP record and you dub a 30 minute vid at regular speed, in the end you will have149 minutes left on the DVD. However, if you fast dub, you will end up with about 134 minutes left on the DVD...additionally, it will sometimes " hiccup " the vid for a second or two here and there. There is one thing that is at the back of my mind though...this is my second LG HDD/DVD recorder. I have a LG LRH-539 recorder. It is basically the same recorder. The burner of the LRH-539 is screwed up and after doing lots of research, I found that this is a common problem on ALL LG HDD/DVD recorders. I could not even get the burner replaced or fixed as an authorized repair shop told me that LG will not support repairs for its burners and they could not even order a used burner for me. The burner is not a standard burner...its a proprietary burner. I had to actually buy this new HDD/DVD recorder because my LRH-539 is now useless as a DVD recorder. Prior to buying this new unit, I researched the burner...it also appears to be a proprietary design...so who knows what may happen in the future. WOW! It sounds like I'm flaming the product! However, over all, I am very pleased with this product. I would recommend it to potential buyers.
