    I'm contemplating buying a DVD recorder with hard drive, and I came across this JVC with an 80gb HDD. Good price as well.

    Would anyone recommend this, or should I hang on and see what Panasonic have to offer later in the year?

    This isn't a UK model is it - in which case just beware the problems from ordering abroad (all of which can be overcome). AFAIK JVC aren't planning a HDD/DVDR combo until early next year.

    All that said JVC HDD/DVDR combos got rave reviews in Japan and people have generally been impressed with the HDD of their VHS/HDD combos.

    As for waiting for the Panasonic offering take a look at the core specs are see whether it's for you:

    This is on the JVC UK web site, and is offered for sale by Electrical Discount, so I assume it's a UK spec. machine.

    ....and it's less than half the price of the Panasonic - £426.99.

    Oh I see. It's a HDD recorder with a DVD player (not recorder!) attached - like the similar product from Thompson.

    Until next month the only DVD Recorder available in the UK from JVC is the DR10 (a high end E50 with no HDD):

    Next month a DVD-RAM/-RW/-R machine will be released by JVC - you can see the specs in a recent post (by me).

    I hadn't realised it was only a HDD recorder. Thanks for putting me right.

    Looks like I'll have to wait now.
