“Open the box of the Goodmans GDVD301R and you think...”

Written on: 15/02/2009 by Captain Topdeck (1 review written)

Open the box of the Goodmans GDVD301R and you think "this is nice.". Pretty stylish, inputs on front for camcorders, etc., 5.1 and DTS outputs. Digest the instructions and it's "what have I let myself in for". It's not all bad news as once you've done a few simple recordings you realise you don't need all the features available to you. Don't bother with the video plus - it's quicker to programe manually, don't record anything over 2 hours as quality disappears exponentially, and cross your… Read Full Review

So complicated to do just simple things. First one went wrong within 2 weeks. Got it exchanged then the new one didn't have videoplus! (Boxes exactly the same!) Looks like this one is jammed now!… Read Full Review

“The Goodmans GDVD301R is my second DVD recorder,...”

Written on: 26/05/2005 by ianrsinclair (1 review written)

The Goodmans GDVD301R is my second DVD recorder, bought on the strength of the DV input. It is, on the whole, easy to use, but can be a shock if you have used a DVD recorder previously. The noise level is quite high compared to the Philips 8080, and it takes some time to get used to the VideoPlus action, which will always record at the correct time but from the wrong channel unless you set the channel number (called, confusingly, the programme number). Sometimes you get an option to set… Read Full Review

Another point to watch is that it can freeze after recording from a digital camcorder. When the STOP key is pressed, it takes a minute to complete the recording, (WAIT is displayed) and if the camera signal ceases in this time, the process is interrupted. You have to cut off power to recover, and no recording will be obtainable. Never try to record all of a camcorder content - you can always tag on a couple of minutes of footage you don't want. The same would probably happen if you switched off a TV while the recording was pending.

Using DV input is problematic. It looks as if the camcorder needs to be sending a signal in before you press the REC button on the recorder, but this has worked only once for me so far.

Written on: 16/05/2005 by AdamAppleby (1 review written)

Only had my Goodmans GDVD301R a couple of days and was impressed with the ease of use and features for something that only cost £115 from Index (closing down sale). It records fine in all modes, although the 6 hour record is a bit grainy. You can name the items you have recorded for future reference and can be played on othere DVD players.
The biggest problem is the playback of recorded DVDs. They keep stuttering, sometimes for a split second, other times for 2 seconds at a time. This… Read Full Review
