With a young child at home, a camcorder was not an option. I purchased the DVD corder because all you have to do is put the DVD-R in the corder, record and then slip it right into your DVD player. I received a free carry case and blank DVD-R's. I did have a problem however with the price match. I didn't do my homework before this purchase and upon returning home, found the product cheaper at Future shop. I called the brick and visited them for a price match which they guarantee and they did not want to honor it because they gave me a free gift. I don't know what the free gift had to do with price matching so I had to go as far as writing a letter to the manager regarding my disappointment. A few days later, I received a call and an apology from the brick and a refund for the difference.
