Been a long time since I posted in this forum...
I'm looking at this a replacement for my Panny (moto, "we've never built a combi player worth buying") EZ47 which, after years of "F60" errors, now has a DVD-RW stuck in it -won't leave "read" mode. Sweet! It's my 4th Panny combi and each of them has failed. The reason I didn't replace this when the "F60" started is that Costco changed it's return policy.
Enough about Panasonic.
It's now been a couple years since your original post:
Still using/liking this unit?
Anyone else with experience?
My main motivations for this device:
1) It handles DVD-RAM.
2) Sam's return policy HASN'T changed -even if they say it has.
3) I like a combination player.
a) I can go VHS to DVD and I have alot of VHS I have been converting.
b) I can go DVD to VHS (for those few people who still own only a VHS machine).
c) I can go DVD-RAM to VHS to DVD - RAM is supposedly more stable, but most DVD players won't handle it. For viewing other than at home, I convert to VHS then RAM. Quality is acceptable and editing is easy.
4) IT ISN'T A PANASONIC.
