  • Excerpt: Currently priced around: £280 - £300 ( August 2006) Although the 80GB hard drive may be a little small for most users, this does not incur a problem asmost programs you can watch and afterwards erase. The Song RDR-HX510S incorporates a range of features including 'Chasing Playback' which allows the viewer to watch a show from the beginning whilst it is being recorded. Overall this machine is easy to use and has the fantastic picture quality expected of a sony unit.

  • 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.

With a hard disk space of 80 Gb, this player can store a massive amount of television programmmes, for example.
