    I`ve only had my HS2 for just over one week , But i have to say its a fantastic piece of equipment.

    The picture and sound quality are superb and not far behind my Pioneer 939 DVD player, Ive used the hard drive and DVD drive for recording and again the quality is excellent.

    The hard drive works really well not having owned a Tivo or Sky+ its great just being able to hit the record button and not worry if there`s enough space on the tape to make the recording.

    There`s a very useful forum here just on the HS2 !!

    Go for it i`m sure you`ll be impressed :)

    Cheers

    I think it boils down to how much archiving you intend to do and how much you record before watching.

    On a normal recorder you can record (up to) 6 hrs at a time. You can then watch and delete to make room for more recordings. A few discs and you should be ok.


    However with the HS2 you can record for longer periods and at the higher recording quality. You can then archive and keep almost full dvd quality recordings forever.
