One Touch Dubbing DVD to VHS or VHS to DVD

Top Positive Review

Works exactly as described – quite simple to use although it doesn’t seem to like DVD-R disks much. I am now using DVD-RW which work very well. The packing job was not good and I had my doubts that it had survived, but nothing seems to be wrong with it. If you do ship anything else, please invest in some bubble wrap and/or packing peanuts or at least a lot more crushed newspaper. It’s more a tribute to Sony than to you that everything still works.

This was sent without a remote, therefor it was unable to use. I then had to pay $50 to return! Not happy with situation & will stick to buying this stuff in person. Rip off!

However, you can slide down a front panel and on the right side you can perform all the easy functions of start, stop, fast forward, reverse, record or select DVD or VHS. Once recorded I would not know how to utilize other functions (on the remote) like ??
