Has anyone seen this in the shops yet? Launch date was given as September 2003 but haven't seen any mag reviews or store adverts yet. Hard disk will record up to 102 hours of TV programming which can be transferred to DVR-R or DVD-RW. click here The only place I have found advertised is this one at a hefty £700 click here That's more than this PC I am using cost.
Thanks Tim. It isn't listed on Kelkoo. I do check them and a few of the others that reputedly find the cheapest prices. Its a similar products to Toshiba's 60GB HDD / DVD recorder but this is listed on quite a few sites now. This for instance click here The quickest way to find cheapest prices is to go on Google and type in the maker and product identity, select U.K. sites only and click on search. This always brings up quite a selection. But even Google is only listing Pioneers new product with a price at the Avland website.
Thanks siouxah1. I had already been considering this on techtronics.com website. Price comparisons show that at £349 its the cheapest available. It also includes the modification to make it multi-regional, which makes it a pretty good buy. click here Techtronics will also supply a VCR enhancing scart lead for extra payment. I also want the versatility of an included HDD which the cheaper Panasonics don't have. Hence the new Pioneer or the Toshiba. I believe the DVD-RAM pictures are excellent and the Toshiba will also record to this format as well as DVD-R from the installed hard disk.
The quality of current television braodcasting would have to improve an immense amount before I could be even tempted to give a second look to one of these devices. Even my £80 VHS VCR gets little use as a recording medium these days.
Oh I dunno -pops- My freeview digital pictures are excellent. Have some favourite videos which I want to transfer to DVD. If they had been released on DVD I would buy the DVD for the extra quality of the commercial product. Some of these videos were recorded in the early 80's so the quality isn't all that good now anyway.
