HX50, HX70, HX90, HX100 (160GB, 250GB, 250GB, and 400GB!!!! respectively) http://www.sony.jp/CorporateCruise/Press/200409/09-0915/ http://www.sony.jp/products/Consumer/dvdrecorder/products/rdr_hx100_hx90.html translator at http://www.worldlingo.com/products_services/worldlingo_translator.html They also have HDD playlist editting and IPGs (interactive program guide) The HX90 seems to be the same price as the HX900. I fear, however, that we will never see these devices outside of Japan. I could not find any reference to the HX900 or HX1000 on the Japanese site, indicating that these models are not newer versions but rather Japanese counterparts. I have been really wanting to get a HDD DVD recorder. The Sony has the most compatible drive and the best image quality; however its HDD editting really, REALLY SUCKS. I have yet to find a recorder with a good balance between media compatibility, image quality, and editting capabilities. Perhaps I am paranoid, but I wonder if companies are intentionally releasing crippled devices to appease the TV and movie industries.
