Lite-On LVW-5055GDL Multi-region capable Multiformat DVD Recorder with 250GB HDD and DIVX - Silver

As a member of another Forum that deals solely with this topic, and also own a DVD Recorder.

I would respond and say the Lite-On has had a lot criticsm regarding reliabiity and after-sales service. Needless to say they are one of the few manufacturers to offer a 2-year warranty, possibly there is a reason for this !!!

What forum is that freaky?

I have the model ...5045.. which I think is identical except for a smaller (160Gb) hard drive. I am delighted with it.

There are a few more differences rmcqua, like divx/vidx playback, and all media format read/write, but thanks for the feedback.

@ freaky
I thought Lite-on were considered to be very good manufacturers of all CD/DVD drives? As for the 2 year warranty, most people would consider that as added "peace of mind", surely?

I am merely passing on the feedback that I read on the AV Forum. On paper they appear to offer good value - but there have been numerous complaints from owners as to their reliability.

As regards the two year warranty - this is probably necessary because of the problems.

Could you post the full web address of the forum please freaky? Thanks

The Humax PVR 9200T is the one..:-)

You can upgrade the HDD capacity later if desired.
