SR-DVM600 or 700 Comments?
on Apr 30, 2007 at 3:31:42 pm

Hi Guys...

I'm looking at the JVC SR-DVM600 or 700 3-in-1 DV Deck/DVD/HDD devices. Can't find a review of them anywhere. Anyone have/seen them and have any compliments or criticisms?

Thanks in advance,

Sure am late to get to this, but maybe someone else will be warned. Our organization bought one and then I did personally for my private production work. Neither one operates. The organization trashed theirs. I kept mine with the hope that some day I'll get an answer.

The company's unit worked for a week or so and then stopped. Mine: the DVD drive never accepts ANYTHING I put in it, audio, video, recorded or blank. The HD has recorded a few times, but can't be depended upon. The MiniDV deck is the only thing that I can use. It allows me to capture to FCP on IMac just fine.

The book is poorly written. The book was a budget job by JVC. My GY-DV500 had a pretty good book, but this is too bare. The icons on the screen are too few pixels and not clear. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't. I've had about 5 JVC items over the years, consumer and pro, but this is a rip.
