    I see that Agos are now selling this recorder for £120. I have read plenty of good reviews of this player (no great ones though), but in all of them it does appear that the player is somewhat crude and lacking a lot of quality. Can any owners out there give their experiences of it? Would it be a good buy just so that I could finally ditch the VCR?

    Well the review was from July 2004, and it doesn't use the advanced editing features of -RW

    so, which model do you get from Argos? I think the offer finishes in the next day or so anyway.

    Can it re-record discs?

    Lite-on's website still only mentions RGB capable SCARTS for the 5006 model, nnot the 5005.
