I have been lookin around for an alternative to my VCR player. However, I am caught between models because there always seems to be something bad and can't decide. Want your help before I start pulling hairs out.
looks like the way to go if you are on the budget. Cheap and open to swapping to larger hard drives. Nice!
CONS: Remote control. Heard it's horrible and I use my remote from a distance of at least 7 ft. Any replacement for it? Any way to improve this?
Mono Tuner?! Come on now, yes many of these shows will be deleted not long after being recorded, but Mono? This is 2006!
Menu Interface? How about quality control of the player?
Pioneer DVR 640h-S
looks like it's a solid recorder. On the pricey side, but heard it was worth it. Now, I am all for spending the extra money if it will save me the headaches later. However, I heard this product has defective hard drives. True?
Does this model have the ability to swap out hard drives like the Polaroid 2001G model?
Any other quirks with this Pioneer?
Main priority is to record tv shows. Then DVD player, then DVD recorder features, etc. If it's going have a dvd player, I mine as well have a good one so I can replace my current DVD player.
If you have another model in mind for me please go right ahead and spill the beans. I am listening!
