I still enjoy use a VCR to record show on TV. With my new JVC DVD recorder I can do a lot more. play a DVD or VCR also it plays MP3/WMA files. I can view JPEG files.. Use dubbing I can take a blank VHS tape and record on DVD. Are use dubbing an record from DVD to a VHS tape.This is fun to do. I can also record from a camcorder using a DV IN jack on the front panel of my recorder. Using the title list menu you can edit video content. I still learning about this JVC DVD recorder. So far I been very happy, I wish the buttons wre a different color on the front of the DVD Video Recorder, the recorder is black and they made the buttons black makes them hard to see. When you turn on it said HELLO Performance Performance is still great. Playback Quality Very good playback quality. Sound Quality Sound quality is very good. Durability Have held really good. Ease of Use Very easy to use.
