Choice between JVC and Pioneer (Maybe Panasonic)



Hello chaps,

I have to buy a dvd HDD recorder. Now the funny thing is that I don't know which one to buy! I am quite new to this sort of thing being strictly a sky and VCR man up to now. I have considered the following:

JVC DRM H50 or DRM H300
Pioneer DVR 530 H-S
Panasonic DMR EH 50

I need to know:

1. Is there any advantage on each of the EPGs they have. ( I know the panasonice doesn't have one so does that matter?) I will be usking it with normal sky. Don't want sky+ and can't get freeview
2 What about picture quality for each
3. Which one is easiest to operate (I'm a techophobe)

If anyone can help here please do so.
