    LVR-1001 Conclusion

    The LVR-1001 does what it is meant to do very well. It records video and audio easily, although the quality is not excellent, it is suitable. The design of the player is excellent, it plays DVDís extremely well, and has a memory card reader, something Iíve never seen before excluding the LVD-2001. Unlike the LVD-2001, it is a very unique player and not like others, mainly because it has two drive trays, something that will stand out! While there are bugs with the drive, such as the power light, these problems will most likely be fixed by the time the final units are released. If they are not, the drive is still great and should not lower the SLRating of the drive significantly. Keep in mind that this will come at a cost, a whopping $400. We previously reviewed the Terapin CD Video Recorder, which essentially does the same thing as the LVR-1001 when it comes to recording. However, it does not have a DVD player built in, has many flaws, and it was priced at $500 when it was first released. Considering this, it seems fair for a player so advanced and so well-made to cost $400.

    The LVR-1001 is a much great buy, despite the $400 price. If you are looking for a easy way to put your home movies on a CD, or burn TV video on a CD, and also have DVD playback, you shouldnít look any further. The LVR-1001 does all of these tasks in a excellent manner and is worth your $400.

    SLRating: 9/10
