Hi.....I am new here, been following this forum - very informative. Help me to decide between LG RH7823W VS Panasonic DMR-EH50. The Panasonic is impressive - 80GB HDD, 2 S-Vid in, 1 S-Vid out, 2 RGB Scart, 1 component set, 1 SD Card slot but without a DV-In connection for digital DV camcorders, while LG has 160GB HDD, DV-in, 1 set component, 1 S-Vid In (front) and 1 S-Vid out (rear), 2 Card slots with no RGB scarts at all...but scart's no problem, as in this region, scart connectors are not used. Price being same - about USD 550/- for both, which one is a better buy ?? What could be logic behind a company like Panasonic to come out with a good set, but without a DV-Input ! LG looks to be a better buy pricewise, but any indication on it's performance ?? anyone ??
