Pioneer DVR-233-S is an entry level DVD Recorder that has the functions similar to a VCR recorder. It can help you to create your video on DVD, or record your favorite TV programs or from any analog video source or digital camcorder. Pioneer DVR-233-S supports recording video in DVD-R and DVD-RW, and video editing in DVD-RW VR Mode. It’s also a versatile media player that playbacks DVDs, DVD-R/RWs, CDs, and CD-R/RWs.

Pioneer DVR-233-S

About concluded that “Overall, with its reasonable price and basic features, DVR-233 functions well as both a DVD recorder and player, and is worthy of consideration for novice users. However, those looking for more editing flexibility and other features that the 233 lacks, such as Simultaneous Record/Play, front panel S-video and DV input capability, and DVD-R DL recording, should consider a higher end unit or a DVD Recorder/Hard Drive combo, such as the Pioneer DVR-533H. I give the Pioneer DVR-233-S DVD recorder 3.5 out of 5 stars.”
