One of my best digital equipment buys,does everything that has been described in terms of facilities i.e.random access to recordings,ffwd and rwd feature,scene fwd and rwd,scene selection and all the other facilities listed.With the dvdr880 I have not only replaced my vcr, but my cd player too.However the one main setback is the reading time which seems to be quite long in the case of dvd movies,(must be something to do with the dvd rather than the player) which can be a little bit daunting for the ones with less patience at that stage.When investing in this piece of equipment get yourself a disc cleaner as you'll need this for recommended cleaning of discs to maintainquality, otherwise there's a risk of your viewings being stopped towards the end which will not be pleasant when it happens.I did my research b4 buying and in the end all i had to debate on was the different prices quoted by various sellers.

Unfortunately this review lacks detail which it needs to give it a higher rating.

Good first attempt at a review but you dont really tell us much about the product and I'm not too sure that everyone will understand technical jargon so you may want to simplify the language or explain what the words mean. More info definately needed for the higher ratings. Hope this helps. Welcome to Ciao. Carebare XX
