    I was thinking of buying a DVD/VCR player and is wondering if that's
    really more desirable than having
    individual units. Opinions, anyone?

    The VCR will probably die first. Then what do you have? Combination units
    are a nightmare.

    Or the power supply dies and takes some expensive microcontrollers with
    it, rendering the whole machine useless...

    In my experience any one piece fails regularly and renders the whole unit
    useless since they often shut down when one or the other part doesn't
    initialize properly. No shop is likely to even be willing to look at them,
    my advice (as well as any other tech-type person) will be to avoid these
    things like the plague, a "good" one just simply isn't made.

    From our experience a combined machine is not a good option. They can be
    troublesome. If one section goes bad, you can loose the whole machine. Also,
    you pay more for one of these, and you can end up scrapping the equivalent
    of two machines if it breaks down, and it is not worth to service any more.

    my advice, find a 1980 sears vcr (the grey one with the wired remote lol)
    and re-belt and clean it (it will last forever) and by the dirt cheap apex
    dvd player, they work pretty good actually, (no dvd player will last that
    long) i wouldnt go any cheaper than apex though. however if the combo
    drive only cost $20 to add a vcr to it, hell go for it just consider it
    disposable:)

    Please avoid Combos (DVD/VCR) (TV/VCR) (CD player/Cassette player) at
    all cost.

    Buy two separate units .It is much safer that way!
