CDR Info has posted some information on the (Japanese) versions of the five new DVD recorders from Panasonic: http://www.cdr-info.com/Sections/News/Details.asp?RelatedID=5073 Of interest to some will be the E150: If/When we get a UK release remains to be see though - probably won't appear until next year. Especially as the UK didn't see the E70 released here (due to higher than expected international demand) and is still waiting on the E75. Note the Japanese E85 has a 160GB HDD (here it is 80GB) and the E95 has a 250GB HDD (here it will have 160GB). Personally I find it annoying we are given the 'minimum' necessary to put the models at/near the top capacity available here - why not just give us the same capacity as the Japanese versions. Cost of course - but then surely this should be less of an issue for the top of the range E95!?!?
