“What can I say that hasn't been said already about the...”

Written on: 24/12/2005 by Nickodell (1 review written)

What can I say that hasn't been said already about the Philips DVD-R1000 DVD recorder? Mine lasted over a year (lucky?), with relatively moderate use. It kept failing to record, and then it would shut down totally, with just an error code showing on the screen, and therefore trapping the DVD+RW disk inside… Read Full Review

It is not only phillips, I have a liteon that has been a nightmare after 9 months with similar faults .
<br/>I have to beg the question as to the generic software ?
<br/>
<br/>I really dont think the DVD operating system is fit for purpose as I have heard of many people with similar problems

Written on: 07/05/2004 by MarkBellchambers (1 review written)

From the outset there were intermittent problems with video + programming. The Philips DVD R1000 DVD Recorder worked one day and not the next. Then it would not awake from standby mode. None of the keys worked. Unplugging and reconnecting did not engage diagnostics as specified in the manual. When diagnostics finished (and passed) the unit hung and would not accept keyed commands. Various error messages displayed, keys unresponsive, restarted in virgin mode, but all the above problems… Read Full Review

“My Philips DVD R1000 DVD Recorder developed...”

Written on: 06/04/2004 by dicktay (1 review written)

My Philips DVD R1000 DVD Recorder developed intermittent faults, error messages - lock up - not recognising blank disks, approx 12 months after purchase. Completely failed 2 months latter - would not read any DVD's. Have just been advised by an authorised Phillips repair centre that it is un-repairable (not worth spending the money needed)… Read Full Review

The first generation Philips DVD recorders all had problems, especially the DVD1000.
<br>This model was taken off the market & replaced with the DVD1000 mark 2 which I have & is well over a year old & I've had no problems with it.
<br>It's important to know which blank DVDs to use with recorders, the worst by far are the Philips, the best easy being Verbatim.

The bottom line is that I was advised by a Phillips repair agent that it was not repairable, 14 months after purchase. It would not read ANY, including DVD movie disks, at all, let alone record to to a blank disks, and I did try different brands of blank disks. They did not replace the recorder but suggested I purchase another Phillips DVD recorder!

Written on: 18/02/2003 by TIm. (1 review written)

This DVD recorder was very good for the first 2 months, but soon developed multiple problems, including disc warnings, disc errors, and not being able to read discs with movies, ie. "NO DISC" and "EMPTY DISC" messages. It managed to corrupt a number of my discs. Overall, just not robust or reliable enough… Read Full Review

“I bought one of these Philips DVD-R1000...”

Written on: 17/02/2002 by Ulf Holmström. (1 review written)

I bought one of these Philips DVD-R1000 players/recorders and have had it for a while now. Everytime i use it, i get more and more convinced that this is the way DVD should be!
When inserting a DVD+RW media, you get a menu, with chapters and "thumbnails" of your recordings. Let's say that you've recorded Startrek, and after that you've recorded 2 episodes of Friends, then you get a DVD menu containing these 3 items. And best of all, when taking this DVD+RW media with you to your parents old… Read Full Review
