I have 2 of these similar Toshiba products here at my home for recording and playback of VHS Tapes and I just bought the SDV296 DVD/VCR unit for my Summer Cottage where I have no cable but bring down VHS tapes we recorded and I also now can rent a DVD Movie at the cottage from a Redbox and the DVD Player portion of this product is SO EASY to use. Before I had a separate VCR and DVD Player and this unit does it ALL in ONE (saves shelf space too). VERY easy to use and picture quality is excellent.

      I have a bunch of VHS videos and see no reason to throw them away and buy the same thing on a DVD. Both the DVD and VHS players work just fine. I haven't tried to record anything yet. I'm sure it will be a bigger challange to get it work correctly.

        It was like a dream come true to still find a VHS player that can record and also play disk. I item works better than the older VHS machines. Buy one and you will be suprised how great it is.

            Comments about Toshiba Black DVD/VCR Combinaton Player:

            We purchased this dvd/vcr combo so we could watch our old vhs tapes and our dvds. It is perfect for our use and was very simple and easy to set up. We had to purchase a second set of rca cables so we could connect to our cable box. Everything works exactly as it's supposed to.

            Service and delivery comments:

            We received our product ahead of schedule and in perfect condition. Thank you for such great service!

              Comments about Toshiba Black DVD/VCR Combinaton Player:

              Like the title says, it does what it's supposed to. relatively speaking, it's a clean, sleek design. I bought this for my daughter since she has my old VHS tapes from when I was little. Her small tv fits perfectly on top of it. It has only the basic necessary buttons, simple enough for her to work on her own. Now, the remote has an unbelievable amount of buttons on it; some, I'm sure, that will never be used. It came with the needed AV cord, which was nice as I have come across some that didn't oddly enought. easy set, power cord and to the tv. short set up process once it was turned on, i think it was just time and date. All together, took me only a few minutes to get it set up and running. I didn't run into any problems with purchasing or delivery of the product.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivered on time, perfect condition, packaged very nicely to avoid damage. Had no need to contact customer service.
