Is it any good considering the cheap price tag and would I be able to transfer my old VHS tapes onto DVD using this DVD recorder and if so,how do I go about it?

Agree with Tomjerry. Liteon is a very good make and write to most discs. Also consider a recorder with a hard drive as it makec it very easy to record without looking for discs.

richer sounds are selling the Panasonic dvd recorder cheaply, that has a HDD that will take 142 hours of recording, got one last week, an ace bit of gear. now putting hundreds of video's onto disk.......trouble is I have not the heart to throw the video's out :-)

Agree with above - the Tevion from Aldi is not good value.

Liteon do have adoo reputation but a seller my local computer fair said he had more of their optical drives returned than other manufacturers.

Thanks for the replies.

I won't bother with the ALDI recorder.

BTW: - is it easy it transfer VHS tapes onto DVDs and if so, how do I do it?

Do you tune the DVD recorder into Video recorder and then record just like you would with a TV programme?

You need to use your computer.
Also you need an analogue to digital converter.
