Well, it may be about to be replaced (depending on which rumour you listen to), but I finally upgraded from the (almost prototype?)E20 to the HS2 with it's nice 40 Gb hard drive (like 9 built in RAM discs). What a machine! - Ultra slim unit; - V slick mirrored finished; - No mad searching for a disc to record something about to start; - Better editing with ability to divide one recording into into seperate programs; - Absolutely no pause on edit points (ie where adverts have been removed); - Record in XP (high qulity) onto HDD; edit, then leave machine to transfer to dvd-r; (no more hooking up a RAM player alongside); - Easy recording of a 2 hour 20 minute film (E20 FR mode only worked on timer record!); - 9 nice colourful menu styles to finalise your disc; - Smart media reader to display your digital camera photos straight onto TV; - Record onto the hard drive and watch a DVD at the same time; - Still got the DV in (like the E20) for my camcorder. - Paid the extra £30 for multi region too! If this machine were £200 cheaper, there truly would be no competition... Ian's (mighty happy) two pence worth!
