    Seriously thinking of getting rid of my Pioneer DV-668AV and getting a DVD writer.

    It's main useage would be to record TV but also very important to record to DVD's from my Sony TRV33E digital camcorder.

    I definately want component connection to my TV so am looking at the Sony RDR-HX1000 or Sony RDR-HX900 (assume only difference is HDD size and therefore price?) or the Pioneer DVR-720H-S but don't think this has component?

    Any thoughts on my suggested purchases?

    Thanks,

    The Pioneer range do not have component connections. The Sony RX900 and RX1000 do have these connections - as do the Panasonic range (E85, E95, E500) and the Toshiba RDXS32. All will do what you want to varying degrees.

    The Toshiba RDXS32 is the all-round favourite at present due to price/features/performance.

    The Panasonic range is very popular largely due to the fact that they offer the best recording quality.

    The Sony range has not been widely adopted here for a number of reasons: lack of HDD playlists, flexible record and a 'Divide' function are the main reasons.
