Not bad, not bad
I have had my dvd recorder now for a few years i dont use it as much as when i first got it because i have sky+ so i dont really need to record on it now, but i do agree with the sound it takes a couple of seconds to come in to play after you turn it on!!! But as for recording it is so easy if you read the instruction, yeh it takes a moment to set up to record as do every other recording product out there! it is a gr8 machine if you can get a grip on the remote that has way to many buttons for me!! how many buttons do you need for god sake? it is worth the money you pay for it and i would rather have this 1 than any other make out there because its reliable!
