Used but well kept. Not using much, selling to clear space. Some of the feature: Design A bright silver unit (435x65x340mm) in a reasonably slim casing for a DVD recorder. The one main eyecatching feature of the DVDR3360H is the pair of glowing "rings" on the front right hand side; one that glows blue to indicate that the hard drive buffer is active, and a second red ring that glows when recording content to either the hard disk or recordable DVD media. The rear of the DVDR3360H houses connections for component, S-Video and composite connections, and in common with many other recorders, there's also a drop-down panel that hides a secondary set of composite, S-Video input. Like most Philips remotes the button that's used for chapter shifting is also the fast forward button. A tap shifts chapters while holding it down will fast forward. Features The DVDR3360H supports progressive scan playback through component video only. It'll also play back MP3 CDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, SVCDs and DiVx video discs. On the recording front, it will record to DVD+/-R/RW media at a variety of recording quality modes that give you between one to six hours on a recordable disk. It doesn't support DVD-RAM, Most hard disk recorders offer a buffering feature for playback and pausing live TV, although the DVDR3360H takes this a step further, as it automatically starts buffering for up to three hours through the unit's 160GB hard drive the moment that the recorder's switched on. It's also quite easy to then record buffered TV content to the hard disk for later archiving. The hard disk itself will record between 34 hours at high quality and 204 hours at Super Long Play quality. Performance Image quality was excellent, especially through progressive scan, Recording was decidely more simple and problem free, whether it was to recordable disc or hard drive. For what it's worth, the DVDR3360H managed to record flawlessly to all of our test discs, When copying content from the inbuilt hard disk to DVD we did hit some of the Philips DVDR3360H's more puzzling limitations and onscreen display omissions. On the plus side, it's exceptionally easy to copy content onto a disc, as you just have to select it from the hard disk content menu and it'll copy it over automatically. You still need to finalise every disc through a different menu -- it'd be nice if you could access this more simply than through switching disc modes. Once your discs are recorded, you can alter chapter and title settings, but again a really weird limitation pops up. The instruction manual claims that hard disk titles can be up to 255 characters long, but only 12 characters will display onscreen at any time. We struggled to get the recorder to register more than 12 characters total, no matter what we tried. The limitations on recordable media is even more marked; you can only have disc titles of 9 characters or less. Bought new at $800, no more warranty.
