Summary: I very easy to set up recorder and even more surprising was how easy it was to use. Basically put the media in and press record. This recorder can play essentially all media types whereas other brands will play only specific or proprietary media. I am a little bit of a techie, but I had never owned a dvd player, let alone recorder until buying this item.
Pros: Ease of use and able to play essentially all media types. Was able to purchase it for half the MSRP at the end of the year!
Cons: No hard drive, haven't been able to program it into my satellite remote control (may be the satellite remote though!)
Excerpt: Looking at the current reviews it seems its 50:50 if yours works well - mine didnt. Playback is superb but I had the same problems as Bohemiansir with sticking playback on DVDs recorded on this machine. I have tried many makes and types of top quality discs but 1/3 of recordings are useless. The worst aspect is that after numerous emails & letters to Sony asking for help and then my money back, I have received not a word. I have always rated Sony gear...
Excerpt: 03/28/06. Sorry, this product has become very disappointing. After 1 use of a RW disc, the recorder would spew recorder errors or just stop recording on new RW discs. For the last three months, I`ve been using different brands of RW discs and the recorder is not reliable after it`s first use. I`ve been using -R discs for my personal programming. It`s costing more than it should.
Excerpt: After a year I found this recorder started to behave unreliably - I always had problems with DVD-RW disks refusing to format, but on two occasions programmes I`d just recorded onto perfectly good disks would appear on the title list but wouldn`t play back, nor would the recorder erase them, getting stuck in an endless `Erasing - please wait` loop.
Excerpt: dont touch it, it wont play discs that it has recorded itself. i am no fool with electronics and this is a seriously inferior bit of kit. reviews elsewhere confirm my views. after ten mins of playing discs it sticks and jumps. i have lost 30 discs of archived material that can not be found again. DO NOT BUY I DONT WANT YOU TO BE DISAPPOINTED LIKE ME.
Summary: Um meine VHS-Sammlung auf DVD zu sichern musste ein DVD-Recorder her. Ich war mir zwar seit langer Zeit sicher, dass sich das +RW-Format eines Tages durchsetzen würde, jedoch gab es von Sony anfangs nur DVD -RW-Recorder. Da mein neuer TV auch von Sony ist und ich Recorder und TV gern von einem Hersteller nutze, kam mir der GX300, der nun auch auf +RWs aufzeichnet sehr entgegen. Inklusiver Versand habe ich 209,00 EUR dafür bezahlt.
Pros: Bedienung, Bildqualität, Multinorm, x Anschlüsse
Summary: Noel 2004, qu'est ce que le papa noel a apporter dans sa hotte ?? Un super lecteur dvd enregistreur !!!! Acheté sur rueducommerce à un prix défiant toute concurrence (359e alors que la Fnac l'affichait au même moment à 599e!!!), il a pris une place indispensable au coeur de mon salon. Je ne suis pas un pro d'home cinéma ou de branchement complexe mais un aficionados de Sony. Mon choix s'est donc porté sur le RDRGX300.
