Quick Take: The GoVideo VR4940 is a dual-deck VCR/DVD recorder that can record on VHS tapes and DVD discs, as well as dub between both formats when using media that's not copyright-protected. Except for the VR4940's black case, backlit remote, and ability to play VCD discs, it offers the same features found in GoVideo's nearly identical VR3930. We did not review the VR4940, but read the VR3930 review for our impressions of that deck.
