    Can anyone recommend a good reliable cheap website for a panasonic e50 or e60 dvd recorder? I thought I would learn from other members' experiences rather than randomly selecting a web site.

    I ordered an E30 a few months back from...
    www.multiregionmagic.co.uk
    No problems and quick delivery.
    They currently have the E50 in stock for £379 (multi region)

    I ordered an E50 from Robertsons Online on Wednesday and it turned up Friday. Superb service and not a bad price (although maybe not the cheapest). £328 delivered.

    Hi,

    Have just checked Robertsons Online (http://www.robertsons-online.co.uk ) and now see why it's so cheap - it's Region 2 only playback!

    I'm guessing that the vast majority on online companies sell for about £365 to £375, but are multi-region versions. Conversions, for this particular DVD recorder model, seem to cost about £60. As such, it would seem stupid to pay just for an R2 only model, unless you're that way inclined... or mad! :D

    Seriously though, the cheapest I've seen this for sale at, is a Multiregion version of the DMRE50 from Sound And Vision Online, for £364-09p, including all delivery charges.

    Or like me you are not interested in the playback capabilities of the machine. I already have a high end player and only need/want the recording functions.

    The original poster did not specify multiregion, hence my original post.

    Because the E30 was more expensive to produce than the E50 , When the E30 was launched (Round about Sept/Oct 2002) the RRP was something like £499 and Philips DVD Recorders were cheaper than that at the time so the E50 was launched in March to replace the E30 so the E30 had a very short production life but I like my E30 only thing the E30 can't do that the E50 can do is play Mp3's.

    Also the styling of the new E50/E60 (and probably the replacement HS2) matches the styling of the new Panasonic DVD players, VCR's and AV recievers.

    Hi Messiah.

    Apologies from me to you. No offence intended. :( I wasn't trying to "put you down" or anything... honest.

    Thanks for the clarification though.

    Thanks- what is a e60 recorder? (Can not find it on line- is this a new player? I have a feeling it may be an e50 upgraded model with DV input)?
    If the price is right then DV input would be useful for camcorders. What is the new toshiba recorder with harddrive? possible price?

    I think the Toshiba RDXS30 is better value for money and Panasonic know this as all the retailers are dropping the price of the current HS2. Even the E60 is overpriced compared to the Toshiba RDXS30.

    Unbeatable.co.uk have the Toshiba RDXS30 HD/DVD Recorder for £525.

    I must say- I am tempted to pay £525 for the Tosh- I see they do not have any in stock yet- I think I might wait until the prices fall further. Who knows I may still buy a E50 if they become cheaper.
