Although consumers have passed over videocassettes for home video playback in favor of DVDs since the 2000s, VCRs still retained a significant share in home video recording during that decade. While the adoption of DVD players has been strong, [[DVD recorder]]s for home theater use have been slow to pickup (although DVD recorder/writer drives are de facto standard equipment in [[personal computer]]s since the mid-2000s).

Although technologically superior to VHS, there were several main drawbacks with recordable DVDs that slowed their adoption. When standalone DVD recorders first appeared on the [[Japan]]ese consumer market in 1999, these early units were very expensive, costing between $2500 and $4000 [[United States dollar|USD]]. (As of early 2007, DVD recorders from notable brands are selling for US$200 or €150 and less, with even lower "street prices".) Different DVD recordable formats also caused confusion, as early units supported only [[DVD-RAM]] and [[DVD-R]] discs, but the more recent units can record to all major formats [[DVD-R]], [[DVD-RW]], [[DVD+R]], [[DVD+RW]], [[DVD-R DL]] and [[DVD+R DL]]. Some of these DVD formats are not rewritable, whereas videocassettes could be recorded over repeatedly (not withstanding physical wear). Another important drawback of DVD recording is that one single layer DVD is limited to around 120 minutes of recording if the quality is not to be significantly reduced, while VHS tapes are readily available up to 210 minutes (standard play) in NTSC areas and even 300 minutes in PAL areas. [[Dual layer DVD]]s, which increase the high quality recording mode to almost four hours, are increasingly available, but the cost of this medium was still relatively high compared to standard single-layer discs. Consequently, DVD recorders never took hold of the video recording market like VCRs had.
