  • Excerpt: "Sony RDR-HX510 ============== After much research I had narrowed down the selection to 2 products - 1 from Panasonic and this 1 from Sony. Both were similarly priced when I bought the Sony RDR-HX510 at £320. There was not much in it when quality was compared, but the clincher was compatibility - I have mostly Sony everything so I reasoned that it was more likely to work well with own brand then competitor brands. What's in the Box? ----------------------- Recorder ...

  • Excerpt: "...time, and came across the Sony RDR-HX510, which seemed to have all the features I needed and good write ups. On receiving it, it was easy to setup and I connected my freeview box without problems. The initial setup wizard is straightforward and easy to follow. The Sony RDR-HX510 is very easy to use, navigating to saved programmes and around the menu is extremely straightforward. There are many different quality settings that you can record ...

  • Excerpt: "...VHS and Betamax). The Sony offers the ability to record and read pretty much every format available at the moment. It will allow recording to DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW/DL. It wont record DVD-RAM, but that was of limited concern to me. It also has an 80GB hard disk drive for recording without having to actually use a DVD disc. At DVD quality, this equates to approximately 17 hours of recording, though this can be signicantly increased by reducing the recording ...
  • Pros: Multi - format recording

Besser als die meisten, aber nicht ausgereift

  • Summary: Den Sony DVD-Rekorder RDR-HX 510/S mit Festplatte habe ich mir gekauft, nachdem ich mit Panasonic, Mustek und Philips schlechte Erfahrungen gemacht habe. Positiv zu bewerten ist bei dem Gerät, dass es länger und bei intensiverer Nutzung störungsfrei blieb als die anderen Geräte. Nach vier Monaten tritt jedoch auch hier der übliche Verschleiß ein.
  • Pros: Variabilität, DVD - Aufnahmen funktionieren besser als bei anderen
  • Cons: Formatierung,  Bedienkomfort, Festplattenabsturz nach nur 17 Monaten

Weihnachten hat sich gelohnt!

  • Summary: Ich mache am liebsten Geschenke, die ich selbst gerne hätte, idealerweise an Familienmitglieder, die in meinem Haushalt wohnen - da hab ich dann auch was von. Mein Mann sollte daher zu Weihnachten einen DVD-Harddisk-Rekorder bekommen, schon allein, weil ich mit der alten sperrigen Mühle von VHS-Rekorder gar nicht umgehen mochte: Man müht sich endlos mit der Programmierung ab und am Ende hat man einen verrauschten Film voller Werbeclips auf Band.
  • Pros: Gute Bildqualität, simple Handhabung
  • Cons: in Detailfragen missverständliche Bedienungsanleitung, fehlende Anschlüsse (DV, 4 + 1)
