  • Conclusion: While most of us still use a tape-based VCRs for time-shifting our favorite programs, others have opted for hard drive-based products such as TIVO and Replay. These products work well, but limit the portability offered by the DVD format.

  • Excerpt: You can have it all (almost).If you're like me, you're sick and tired of format wars. When will these companies learn that having to choose between formats only leads to consumer frustration and, sometimes, outright rebellion?

  • Summary: I've been holding off on buying a DVD Recorder this year, as they're still in that "early adopter" stage and have a few bugs to work out. However, when I saw that Future Shop dropped the price of this unit from $1299 CDN to $999, I had to pick it up for an evaluation.
  • Pros: - Records on 3 out of the 4 popular consumer formats (-R/RW, +RW; I don't consider DVD-RAM to be a "popular" consumer format), - The first Sony progressive DVD player that does NOT have the chroma upsampling error!!, - Excellent de-interlacer; able to handle the bad-edit problems in TV series tha...

  • Summary: This is my short term solution until I buy my CoCoon in Japan where the DVD Recorder, Harddrive and network capabilities are intertwined into one system.

Able to interface with Satellite system flawlessly (Sony DP1) and use the Enhanced Programming Guide to schedule recordings. Erases DVD-R programs prior to finalization, which is great since you cou...
  • Cons: i-Link is great for DV recorders (works well with my Sony DV) but will not interface with Sony VAIO system to record a DVD off of the hard drive or the DVD drive.

Sony RDR - GX-7

28 November 2003
  • Conclusion: Som sagt kan man optage på både DVD-RW og +RW. For at benytte de mange redigeringsmuligheder, kræver det at man bruger DVD-RW formatet. Maskinen kan desuden afspille CD, DVD-video, CD-R, CD+R. At optage er simpelt. Man fristes til at sige "som sædvanligt".
