We purchased this DVD/VCR/CD player as a family gift for Christmas five years ago for our favourite pastime, curling up in a comfy seat to watch an entertaining movie from our collection.
The HiFi VHS, although, no longer popular, allows for excellent clarity of voice and high quality tone. The dolby digital enhances the sound, a feature so appreciated when watching a musical or listening to our CD's of either holiday songs or some of my favourites like Mama Mia. The progressive digital scan gives the picture a sharp image, the colors are clear and precise. It has an MP3 connection which I don't use, but for someone who is an avid fan of MP3's it is a fine addition.
I have had problems with the automatic clock setting which freezes the system after a power failure and makes it impossible to reprogram it. The manufacturer suggested pulling the plug for twenty minutes before resetting it, which does work. Since, it is considered a minor malfunction with one of the chips, a problem easily solved and doesn't occur very often I just put up with it.
I do like this DVD/VCR/CD combo which is becoming a rarity these days, however, due to its annoying glitch I can't give it a ringing endorsement.
