I have all of his DVDs and this is my favorite. It compiles all of the others into one. The photography is much more detailed than the others too giving you a much better view overall. Makes it easier for the novice to understand the techniques. I watch his DVDs during the winter months to keep my techniques mentally sharp. Believe me, it does help tremendously to have them pat in the mind so when you are on the road, it comes to the forefront.

As an experienced rider, you ALWAYS need to review to improve your riding skills. There is ALWAYS material that should be reviewed to keep a rider/operator sharp. Think about this, what if a Pilot of an airplane NEVER continued to review his training for that airplane. Or he did not practice take-offs or landings. Or review or practice emergency procedures while that plane was in the air or when on the ground. Would you want to have that pilot as YOUR pilot to get you safely to your destination? If the operator of a motor cycle would review situations and practice riding skills, more lives would be saved.

Good sound basics from a more than qualified instructor. I rode bikes for a little over 30 years, including 3 as a motor cop, but then due to business and family, had to stop for about 15 years. Now, even though I'm well into "retirement" age, I found this a great refresher. Missing some of the drills I liked or found useful when I was in motors, but a great refresher and for anyone - it's a must see. So why only 4 stars? My personal preference for presentation I guess. I felt he kind of rushed through things. I know there are "quiet" gaps while watching the riders, but i think the actual instruction should be a little more in-depth...especially for those who may have limited experience.

When I first ordered the unit I thought I'd get an Emerson, BUT, Things didn't go my way, Instead of the Emerson I Received an APEX Model # ADV-3800. At First I was Furious but, after I'd had time to "Cool Off", I noticed that I'd gotten an UPGRADE, to the Apex, which has More Features Like SP, EP, & SLP, also the unit is programmable, it came with a Remote, it has Zoom, All kinds of Good Things, So In the words of Mick Jagger: You Can Always Get What You Want, Sometimes You Get What You Need" . And Thanks to Dave's Compliments, "I Got What I Needed", I hope this Helps, Many Thanks.

P.S. Since the remote that was sent "initially" was missing a battery cover, I made not of that to Dave, so he sent me a Brand New one along with the battery cover

Purchased unit to play back older VHS Movies through S-Video Cable.(Clearer Picture)
Also to record TV programs with DVD Recorder..
Was VERY HAPPY & AMAZED to find that all signals (VHS, DVD & TV Tuner) are able to be played back through the HDMI cable to TV. Makes VHS playback sharpest picture you can get. I have 1 cable running to my TV from this machine.
(No Need for the S-Video cable)
This allows hook up to be very easy, very fast and makes for nice neat appearance. (1 cable vs 3,4 or 5)
DVD recording play back is very SHARP and CHRISP. Sound is perfect too.
Having the DTV tuner lets me record DTV chanels too.

Only feature I found that was a little problem, was the Auto Clock setting.
Clock did not keep correct time when in Auto Mode.
Changed Clock setting to Manual Mode and clock keeps perfect time now..

This was a replacement for a 15 year old Magnavox (when Magnavox was owned by Philips) 2 head mono VCR that worked fine over that period of time. It gradually developed tape tracking problems and the timer only went to *2009. On searchig for a stand alone VCR I discovered that new ones are no longer available and so resigned myself to a buying a dual deck unit.

I first became aware of this product in a sales flyer from Radio Shack (priced at $279.99). I checked Amazon and was surprised to find it not only available but a hundred dollars cheaper. As this item has only a 90 Day Parts & Labor warranty (9 months parts only after the 90 days) I also purchased the Square Deal 3 year warranty.

We've been using it for about a month, and as of this writing. it has worked flawlessly. And with an HDMI

Always worked well for me after all these years. The instructions are a little spotty, and you have to download a full manual from the manufacturer, but it's definitely fine. The only thing that was a little frustrating was trying to chapterize a recording; there has to be an easier way to do this. If you just let it chapterize every 5 minutes, especially with general videos, it's fine. Quality of results in recording is great, and it's wonderful that one can do this at home with relative ease. Awhile ago, a relative loaned me two videos she had of her son when he was an infant and asked me to transfer it to DVD. She didn't realize how much of her now deceased husband was on the video, which left me crumpled on the floor crying (he was my dear cousin, who was like a brother to me), and

I like it. I have a large collection of VCR tapes and I wanted them on disc. I also wanted to record all the shows that I had missed. I confess I'm also a football fan. If you are watching football or any show there's a pause button for playing or recording. It has quite a memory and once you've finished it records it on disc. In this instance you're instructing it what to record or not to record before it puts the recording on disc. You can format blank discs for a two, four, six or eight hour format. Low formats bring higher quality but I usually prefer the six hour format and put several games or movies on the same disc. The best blank disc is DVD+RW. Along with the Toshiba the DVD+RW allows for more editing. You can wipe the disc clean and format it again. Now

I purchased this unit to replace a 15 year old PROSCAN VCR which was eating my VHS tapes. Before I selected this unit, I read all of the INVALUABLE reviews of VCR/DVD machines on this web site and I'm glad I did. If you have not purchased VCR and/or DVD replacement equipment in a while, there are a number of considerations you need to be aware of.

First, if you want to go from your antenna line-in and/or your cable line-in directly to the back of the VRC/DVD unit to record OTA or cable programs while watching other programs on your TV, then you need a VCR/DVD unit with a tuner. Not all units listed have tuners; this one does. A tunerless unit will require a more complicated hookup and you can only record what you are watching.

Next, there is the issue of analog versus digital equipment. Be sure to pay

Great machine, does what I want it to do. Don't pay attention to all those negative comments about the product. Just remember that this machine will not play S-VHS tapes.

Regarding the Toshiba DVR670...
The instructions written in the owner's manual on how to make a DVD copy of a VHS tape are in serious error, and if you follow them, you will spend serious hours trying to figure out how to transfer a VHS tape segment to a DVD. I found the correct sequence by accident, after almost 4 hours and two days of trial and error. Here is the correct sequence:
1. Power up the machine
2. Put a VHS tape in the VHS slot
3. Open the DVD tray...Put a DVD in the tray.
4. Close the DVD tray... go to on-scrteen menu to format the DVD from scratch.
5. After formatting, select the VHS button and go to the

This machine plays the DVD's and VHS tapes, BUT the quality of the playback is very poor. Can play the same tapes/DVDs on another machine and get a clear and colorful picture. This machine has an output that is low color and not a very sharp picture. Haven't tried to copy anything yet, but don't have any desire to have copies if they will be in the same inferior quality. Definitely not worth the price.

This product is useless without a remote control. What's the point of having one without a way to program or use it. Nor was there any instruction manual on how to hook up the cables. This VCR/DVD is different than any other unit we have ever seen. We were unable to hook it up.

I had to return a VCR from another company so was hesitant about ordering again. i read the feed back from customers
and the rating G & D Authentics received , so decided to try them. Received my VCR early and when I opened the box everything was there to install my VCR including batteries for the remote and a phone number if I needed any help. The
VCR was in very good condition and it works great. I highly recommend G & D Authentics for there product and
fast service.

I really appreciate Amazon. My Panasonic DVD player blew out in a storm surge a few months ago. I tried to get it fixed with no luck. I called Panasonic with no luck. My player was stopped being produced in 2005. Frustrated (this player has the appropriate hook up in the back for my tv and U-Verse connections) I went to Amazon. Low and behold there were two identical to the one I had had. One was refurbished (too expensive for me) the other one was used; said was in good shape with a thirty day guarantee. Just right for me. Exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. It is now in my home, hooked up to my tv and u-verse connections and working fine. I really appreciate Amazon for being there

Sincerely

I just got this refurb model a few days ago and could not be happier. First, I like refurb units because it means someone had a problem with the unit when new, that now has been resolved. The one I got looks like a factory new model. The one touch dubbing is exactly what I was looking for. I have a lot of old home movies, TV shows, etc... on VHS. I pop in the tape, pop in the DVD ( I use DVD RW but this unit does R+ and R- as well)hit the dubbing button and come back in a few hours. The DVD copy actually looks cleaner than the VHS original. The DVD RW plays in every DVD player I've tried. I think the compatability problems others have talked about is because they didn't finalize the disc. With the DVD RW you don't have to finalize, with

This is the second Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo I purchased within a 2 month period. I really like these units. There are 2 things that are important to address here in order for this unit to work to its full potential.
First, your television must have at least one composite input, and one hdmi input, otherwise this machine will not do what it is meant to do: dub from VHS to DVD, dub from DVD to VHS, nor will it record in 6 hour mode on VHS tapes.
Second, it is important to push the 'TIMER SET' button after you completed programming for DVD or VHS to record while you are away, if you just turn the machine off, your programs will not record. I have a Magnavox DVD recorder that automatically sets to record once the power button is pushed to

Yes, it works well. The directions are pretty good, considering that these operations can be complicated. You need to read them carefully. It will make a DVD from a VCR tape. That was the main issue for me. But don't buy the DVDs until you read the directions. There are apparently 12 different types and you need to have the right type depending on the record time and quality that you need. Oh, and the word "Dubbing" means that it's making a copy, DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
One more thing, buy an HDMI cable for it. It's not included, but if you can use one with your TV, that will be the only connection you need to make and it's the best of all of them.

I've owned this item for about a month and have had no problems with it at all.

Contrary to the experience of the other two users here the DVDs I've created (either by dubbing from a VCR tape or by recording live TV) have worked flawlessly in the other two DVD players I own. Mind you, you do need to finish a disc before you insert it into a standard DVD player, but that's to be expected. The VCR has also worked fine every time I've used it.

I also appreciate that machine has a number of inputs that allow you to use it essentially as a hub for the rest of your devices. I have both my computer and my cable box connected through composite/s-video inputs and thus never have to touch my TV remote. Also, unlike some VCR/DVD combinations only requires one set of outputs not

I was skeptical spending $450 on this, but it has been worth it! The product arrived neatly packaged with all components well protected. Full instruction manual was great and easy to follow. The unit plays existing DVDs and VHS tapes as well as VHS-C tapes if you have the converter case (not included). The rewind on the VHS side slows down before it stops, so I never experienced the "snap" of the tape like I read in other reviews. I utilized the quarantine to convert all my childhood tapes (no sound from the 1970s), our wedding video, and our own children's tapes. So far I'm on disk #3 with no problems at all. Simple to use with minimal hookup. I have about 8 more disks to create (30+ VHS-C ) and looking forward to it. Great investment! I used DVD-R

This recorder is exactly what I was looking for. Within thirty minutes of opening the box, I was burning my first DVD from VHS. Since then, I have "rescued" about forty VHSs of home videos, and have had no problem. One note: If you plan to play your DVD in other players (and of course you do), don't forget to "Finalize" it on this player after you burn it. I missed that step in the instructions and couldn't play my first DVD on my TV until I did it. Look in the instructions (that are included) for details. Also, this does NOT come with any kind of monitor, so you much have some (basic) monitor and a cable (I used HDMI) in order to even access the menus (plus, to be able to watch the recording as it is copying).

This item seems to fix the problem my 10-year old player had in not being able to read 80% of my DVD collection. After slow-checking the first four or five initialization tests, the new player generally zips through the remaining tests and then quickly loads the disk. My 10-year old player had degraded to the point where it slow-checked all 10 or 11 tests (up to five tries on each one) and then took up to 90 seconds to load the disk or declare it unreadable. Also many of the disk navigation features were no longer functional on the old unit.

As before, the video input-output (extreme right, on the back) works the best providing a clear sharp picture. On my system, the HDMI input-output works no better than using a TV channel input-output.

The only problem that I have with the refurbished unit is a

I have had about 6 or 7 VHS/DVD players, all Toshiba. The last one I got was very "pale" in the color on the screen. I have
never had this problem before. It wasn't as clear, either. It looks wavy at times. It works, but it is not as good as some of those I have gotten without the remote control. If I need to purchase any more, I will look for something without remote control. I feel that the sellers are more honest about the "quality" of their product.

When I moved to another state none of my DVD/VCRs made the trip with me which broke my heart. I guess I'm was still a little "old school" (65 yr old lady now) and at the time only familiar with hooking up via a standard cable, wall to VCR, VCR to TV set up. HDMI was a whole new thing for me adjust to and learn. I was very frustrated at first because the HDMI signals do not flow through one to another like a daisy chain, which HDMI does not due, which at first had me very confused. Plus I had downsized from a cable box TV service to just Roku, how was I going to share 1 Roku stick with both the TV and the recorder, simple, I invested in a composiite to HDMI converter and it works great.
