Summary: Great recorder, easy to use, reliable. Encoding options are simple to understand, and even 6 hours on a DVD is quite watchable. I've put all my old video tapes on to DVD, it was time-consuming feeding then all in, but simple to trim the files and burn the DVDs.
Summary: excellent quality and good price. if u have a dual-format computer DVD drive then there really is no worries. And forget out using DVDs and Videos for all your regular recordings, just use the HDD which will hold loads of films and TV programs.
