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.

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
