I've got the Cyberhome DVR 1600. £69 from Asda. I have also got the Cyberhome DVD400 which is just the DVD player and I wa so impressed with it that I bought the recorder 'blind'. It is an excellent piece of kit and does more than I will ever need. I cannot see the point in paying any more than £70. It is easy to set up with clear instructions.
I purchased a Liteon 5005 just over 12 months ago. It no longer recognises a blank +RW disc, but continues to record on previously formatted discs. It's also hit and miss whether a recorded disc will play in another machine. No substitute for the VCR I'm sorry to say.
