I've had my Toshiba 430 since 2-4-12.
Not 1 problem. 400 hrs of recording--probably.

There are ways around that for another $100. The Toshiba DVDRs work well but I hate the 2 Hr. limit. The cheap Funai recorders (Magnavox. etc)have a 2.5 hr. speed which I end up using a lot because movies sometimes run over 2 hours. With the Toshiba you have to go 4 hours and there's a big loss in PQ. 2.5 is hardly noticeable.
