  • Excerpt: This model is clearly quality. Since the recordable DVD players overtook the VHS market, people have been looking for a solid replacement to their VHS. In this model i believe they have found it. Affordable in comparison to other models, this player is clearly one of the best available.

  • Excerpt: I was looking around for a DVD/HDD Recorder for some 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.
  • Pros: Wide range of features/formats, read  +  record to HDD/DVD simultaneously
  • Cons: Problem with timer function

  • Pros: Multi - format recording
  • Cons: None yet
