I love the idea of bringing on a set top DVD recorder for the small jobs. Instead of sending people to the local wedding guy, I can actually make some money on the call, "I've got some home movies I'd like to transfere to DVD." Also, I could easily send out screening DVDs instead of screending VHS copies.

Which, if any, of the models allow for menu's and chapters markers? If they burn directly from a VHS, do you have to sit through the whole thing to add chapter markers, or can you do that later?
Also, can these recorders handle really bad video? What happens when a client brings in a very poor VHS tape? (aren't they all?) Does it just gloss over sync loss and torn video?

All I need is to talk to someone who's used these, instead of a sales guy at best buy.
