Need advice on DVD/VCR combo unit....

Hi all:

My father-in-law has a single spot in an already overcrowded wall unit, and he wants to replace his old VCR with one of those DVD/VCR all-in-one combo units. I can't convince him to got with separate components.

Samsung has the v1000, Panasonic has the D4741 and D4761, GoVideo has the DVR500, pretty sure Sharp has one, and there must be a few more out there.

Any advice on this topic would be appreciated (besides don't buy one): great deals you found, quality of the different models, etc.

Out of those listed, I'd lean toward the Panasonics simply because of the name/reputation.

Opinions???

TIA

It's not what you want to hear, but don't do it.

My parents thought this was a neat idea and had to go through several Govideo combo units to finally get one that worked. The quality was extremely poor and they ended up returning it after a couple of weeks and purchasing a separate DVD player.
