DVD recorders aren’t exactly cheap, although prices are steadily falling.

But if you want a model with a hard drive then you’ll still have to pay through the nose – £800 in this case.

The 160GB hard drive in Panasonic’s DMR-E95H allows you to save up to 36 hours of TV programmes recorded at the highest quality level and 284 hours at the lowest.

It will also record on to DVD-R and DVD-RAM media.
