DVD Recorder or Fujitsu MEDIA CENTRE?

:confused: Considering the Fujitsu Scaleo E as the Panasonic DVD recorders (to match my TV) don't quite hit the mark. Any reviews, as i can't find one on here?

QUESTIONS:
1. Are these Media Centres upgradable, or more like Laptops? I am thinking that I would be able to upgrade the Video card in the future when HDTV is standard (unlike a DVD recorder which would become obsolete. Also increase HDD etc, as necessary.

2. Will I be compromising on video quality?

3. Are they all as noisy as a PC?

Cheers

If you are looking for upgradeability you may be better off self-building.. or at least buying a ready built one in a larger case with expansion slots. Also, a media center with only one tuner is not recommended, you miss out on a lot of the cool tv recording features, and will be forever trying to resolve recording conflicts.

I bought mine with three tuners so no probs with recording conflicts, case also has plenty of room for expansion. No probs with noise either very quiet.
my two cents
