I have been toying with the idea of buying a phillips dvdr75(for the i-link connection) but I have been put off by all the horror stories with the Phillips machines in general. I was looking at reviews for the above machine on amazon where at least 75% of people who had bought this machine and left reviews on the website were highly critical of Phillips and the dvdr70 and 75. Also you just have to read the forums on dvd+rworg website to realise that it is not worth spending the money on these recorders as they are very un-reliable. I was really looking forward to getting one of these machines until then and feel somewhat dissapointed by it all. I want a dvd +rw recorder as this format is compatible with exsiting DVD players but i cannot afford to take the gamble and hope it wouldn't go wrong. The extended warranty on top is out of my budget so I have no choice but to look elsewhere. Phillips customer service is supposed to be non-exsistant and for the life of me I do not understand why they are still putting newer models on the market that are plagued with problems. Does anyone know of any other manufactures that have a decent dvd+r/+rw recorder on the market for a reasonable price (£400 approx)?
