Customer Reviews

Great ProductThis thing is fantastic! I am using it to transfer VHS and 8mm family videos to DVD. It is simple to use. Really it is, read a little bit of the manual that comes with it. You can spend much more and get much less in the "Marts". This unit has wonderful cable input and output options that lesser models do not have. I have created about 18 DVD's so far with no problems. I bought an HDMI cable to plug from the unit into my HDTV. So that might be an extra expense for you. That HDMI cable cost about $30 at the "Mart" so you might want to shop around for one. Save your Saturday, your money and gas, stay out of the stores comparing units. You will save about $60 buying this on-line and mine was delivered at my home 3 days after the order was placed. And if you are as big a geek as me you will spend several weekends transfering tape to DVD, wondering why you ever filmed an entire 5th grade soccer game. 5Toshiba D-R400the Good:This is my second Home DVD recorder and I experienced no bugs in the operation of the Toshiba. The price at 140 is excellent for this quality. It reads any dvd from any recorder I've tried, including several which won't read on other players and recorders. It has excellent flexibility in editing, including a way to cut out unwanted segments of your program. I have a 47" HDTV and the HDMI output is excellent in HD modes, this recorder does a good job of upconverting.the Bad:The title editing is a little lame and time consuming, though it works correctly. The remote control is all black and complex, making it hard to find the correct buttons sometimes. Different discs DVD-R, DVD+R, and DVD+RW are strangely limited in the menu choices for recording, depending on which type of disc you are using. The DVD-RW has full functionality in the menu. I don't know if it is just the DR400 or if others have these limitations. PCs don't. My old ILO DVD Recorder didn't have the functionality to begin with. Read the manual to see what I'm talking about.Overall:The best Home Entertainment DVD recorder I've seen rivaling a PC in functionality, except for speed and software. I think this product is sold out and I'm glad I got a new one. 5Easy to use; pretty good picture quality.This item is pretty easy to use - even the initial installation. I did have to make 2 connections though. The first one so I could actually play/record DVDs and the second one so that I could watch regular tv without the picture first going through the DVD player. There is only a HDMI output on the product, which means that the input is either AV or S-video, which leaves room for some distortion.Besides that, I love the product. I recorded my first DVD last night and it was so simple, even renaming the disc was easy to figure out. The quality of the picture seemed to be the same as when I originally watched it on tv.The upconverting that the product does to regular DVDs is pretty good. The picture is nice and clear and even brighter. I am pleased.Overall, this is a good product - especially for the price! I highly recommend it and am glad that I made the purchase! 4WOW WHAT A VALUEI PURCHASED THIS ITEM BASED ON THE OTHER REVIEWS......I RECIEVED IT LAST NIGHT......I HOOKED IT UP TO MY SHARP AQUOS HI DEF TV......AND TO MY HI DEF TIMEWARNER DVR CABLEBOX......THIS ITEM IS JUST WONDERFUL........YOU CAN FIGURE THING OUT PRETTY MUCH ON YOUR OWN BY PLAYNG WITH THE REMOTE.....AND IF NOT THERE IS THE MANUAL.......I'M WAITING FOR AMAZON TO DELIVER MY HDMI CABLE TODAY AS I AM AT PRESENT USING COMPONENT CABLES(RED GREEN BLUE)......EVEN WITH THE COMPONENT CABLES THE PICTURE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT......I MUST SAY IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A UPCONVERT DVD PLAYER 1080P WITH A BONUS OF BEING ABLE TO RECORD YOUR FAVORITE PROGRAMS...THIS IS YOUR BABY..........YOU WILL THANK ME 5Easy to use, compatible, and good upconversionI purchased this unit about 3 months ago and have been very happy with it. The unit is relatively easy to use (although my application is pretty straightforward). Basically I was looking for a recorder that would allow me to archive shows from my DVR onto a DVD. Once set up, I push the play button on my DVR and the record button twice (for a 30min show) and walk away.The upconversion is quite good. In fact, I stopped using my other DVD player because the image looks so good out of this player (for professionally recorded media).There are several recording quality settings. I have found that anything below 4 hours / DVD is not watchable. The 4 hour or less setting produces a reasonable quality output. On the other hand, I'm mainly recording Thomas the Tank Engine and Sesame Street. 5A great DVD recorder to go your your DVRThe Toshiba D-R400 DVD recorder is a great compliment to your Digital Video Recorder (DVR). (Toshiba has now released 2 newer models, the Toshiba DR410 1080p Upconverting Tunerless DVD Recorder and the Toshiba DR420 DVD Recorder, Black--which may be a lower price on Amazon than the reseller prices for the D-R400.) After you've recorded a lot of movies or programs from your cable or satellite dish and the hard drive on your DVR starts to fill up, you can burn those videos to DVD with the Toshiba D-R400. (Note: You don't have to have a DVR in order to burn programs to DVD--you can record from your cable TV or any video source connected to the D-R400.) One review I read indicated that DVD recorders might not record movies from HBO or pay per view. I'm happy to report that HBO, HBO on Demand, and pay per view movies were recorded just fine by the D-R400. When you put in a blank DVD, it only takes about 20 seconds until the D-R400 is ready to start recording. When you press record, it starts recording instantly. You can pause recordings. You can also stop recording and then add more videos to the same DVD later if you do not finalize the DVD and there is still space on that DVD. Or, you can buy DVD-RW or DVD+RW discs and use them over and over again just like a VCR tape. There are many options and features. You can record in aspect ratios of 16x9 or 4x3, or leave the aspect setting on auto. You can choose to record in 1 hour, 2 hour, 4 hour, 6 hour, or 8 hour mode, although the quality of the 4, 6, and 8 hour modes will not be as good. I'm happy to report that you can burn programs on High Definition channels to DVD, but the quality of the recording is still subject to the limits of the mode you choose (1, 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours). Although the D-R400 does not have a tuner, it does have a timer (12 timers) that you can set to record TV programs from cable TV (or your video source). You can also record from an external device such as a VCR, camcorder or DVC (digital video camcorder). Some have said that the D-R400 will not record closed caption information; however the Toshiba does burn the closed caption data to the DVD. (The issue with closed captions is apparently that HDMI does not support closed captions. I was able to view closed captions when playing DVD's burned by the Toshiba when I had my Toshiba connected to a TV using an S-Video cable. However it was the TV that was processing and displaying the CC info. Now I'm connecting the Toshiba to a Samsung HDTV using an HDMI cable and the closed captions are not displayed by the Samsung. The Samsung manual states it does not support CC with HDMI or component connections. If you need closed captions, some have indicated that the Panasonic DVR models DMR-EZ47VK, DMR-EZ27K, and DMR-EZ475V have an option to display CC's on the picture before it is sent out over the HDMI cable. In that case it is the Panasonic DVR that is processing and displaying the CC's, not the TV processing the closed captions.) Playing DVD's: There is HDMI output and you can select 480P, 720P, 1080I, or 1080P output (the D-R400 will upconvert to these higher resolutions). In order to play your recorded DVD's on another DVD player you have to finalize the DVD, which takes about 2 minutes. (But you can play the DVD's on the D-R400 without finalizing them.) For playback, there is commercial skip as well as fast forward and fast reverse (up to 40x) plus slow forward and slow reverse. It also has chasing playback during recording so that you can play back what you are recording without waiting until the recording is completed. When I've used the Maxell DVD-R discs (sometimes on sale at Offic* Depot for $11.99 for a spindle of 50) I've never had it burn a bad DVD. I have had it produce some coasters when feeding it generic DVD's. Overall I have been very pleased because it has worked very well for copying programs from our DVR to DVD and for playing the DVD's we've purchased. 5Toshiba makes an outstanding DVD recorder!I use this product to record shows from my DVR and for creating DVDs from my computer video programs. I haven't used it for playing back on a HD TV set, since I don't have one yet. But I bought it for that purpose after reading the reviews on using it with HD sets. I'll buy a 1080 HD set later this year, but won't be too disappointed in the playback upconverting quality, since I know its limitations from the other reviews. The recording side is easy to use and works great to my satisfaction as other reviewers have pointed out.The two fastest recording speeds have the best video quality, much like the older VHS formats with multi speeds. The two hour rate can be used for the older DVD players, but I use the four hour rate for saving most of my works with great video quality. The six and eight hour video recording rates are too grainy looking for me.The manual is okay, but needs more clarification on some recording features. I like the input access on the front panel for my computer connections using either standard video or S-video connections. The remote works well for my uses. Overall, this product works great for the many features and price with upconverting capabilities. I imagine someone will have a HD recorder in a year anyway. 5A great quality Toshiba product! Very good recorder so far.I have replaced a Samsung DVD-R135 with this Toshiba D-R400 recorder, and I have to say... This is leaps and bounds better than the DVD recorder it replaced. Yeah, this may not have a tuner built-in, but connected up to my digital cable set-top box, it upscales everything. You'd swear that all the TV stations started broadcasting in high definition, it's just that good on standard digital channels. Recording was great, was not picky about which channels it could record, even recorded HBO without hesitation. This is hooked up via HDMI to my JVC LT-32X667 32" LCD HDTV, by the way. Looks really sharp on that display. Great product, Toshiba! Shame that HD DVD didn't work out for ya, that, too was a great product. 5Wait no more!I have waited so long to convert my Hi8 tapes to digital. I was wanting that special converter and always wasn't sure which one was the best. And, even if I did buy a converter, what will I do after all my 15 or so tapes are converted. This Toshiba D-R400 is a perfect solution. The price of slightly over $[...] is great for what you get - a DVD recorder as well as a DVD player that up converts.First, the recorder part. You can record in XP, SP and other modes that gives you 1hr or 2hr or more of recording times respectively. My first video, that is about 13 years old, was put to test. I connected my camcorder's S-video output for the best video quality possible. Connecting is easy due to the front input panel. There are audio inputs in the front as well. Leaving every other frils aside, the quality of the DVD created was very good. I didn't really make out any difference between the video outputs from playing the camcorder directly on TV or playing the DVD created. Of course, I am not a professional. For me all that mattered was my then 5 month old son's cherised video still great to look at.Since my 2-hour tapes had to be split into two DVD in the XP mode, next I recorded a tape in the SP mode to fit all the 2hrs onto 1 DVD. The quality of the video I saw was the same (to the untrained eye). Keep this in mind when you record a DVD from your old tapes.The D-R400 has some editing features available. E.g., you can edit a title name, add chapters at frequent intervals, etc. But what you can do depends on the media type (DVD+R, -R, +RW, etc). There is a handy chart that lists out the capabilities for the different DVD types.The user manual is one of the best I have seen so far. Setup was a breeze. No HDMI cables come with it, but getting HDMI cables is not an expensive option anymore.The other part of the D-R400 is the DVD player itself. So far I was viewing my DVDs using component video on my 1080i TV. With the D-R400, with the HDMI connection, I thought the picture was sharper (again, an untrained eye looking). The remote reminds you of the bigger, thicker ones but doesn't bother me. There is no subtitles button the remote, which would have made it easier as I almost always have the sub-titles on.Now, I can rest assured that my son's videos (now in digital) can be watched by my family years later. This D-R400 is one of the biggest bangs for the buck I have got in recent years! 5Very GoodI too searched around for a decent DVD recorder and settled on this one due to the reviews. I'm happy with the choice. I originally just wanted a DVD recorder so I could empty my DVR of recorded series.It did exactly what it is supposed to do with little weirdness. Good enough.Then I received a netflix disk that my main player couldn't read. The DR400 had no problem. It also plays other DVDs that my other players can't. So, I installed it as my main player.The DVR and the DR400 both fed a video switch that automatically switched to the DVD player when it was turned on. The DVR was wired directly into the DR400 and into the video switch. Taking the TV output from the DR400 instead of the switch removed the switch from the system, kept all functionality, and added an up converter.The DR400 has now replaced my other DVD player AND a video switch. So I have less wire clutter, fewer pieces of equipment, and up conversion too.Not bad. 4
