First post, so greetings, etc. Bought a Toshiba 30 rdxs30 about 6 months ago. Set it up etc,. Picture and sound were great, as was the recording, menus, et all. However the unit made quite a lot of noise, (whirring fan or HD). So I sent it back thinking I had a faulty unit. I wanted the surpliers to test the unit, fix it or send me a replacement. But there was a mix up and they ended up refunding me the total amount. At this point I decided not to buy a new unit, but to wait until the newer models came out (RGB in/out on the new Tosh unit, plus bigger HD). Anyway I finally ordered a new Toshiba RDX-S32B (multi-region). It arrived this morning, opened the box, plugged it in, and what did I hear........loud whirring noise and annoying buzzing sound. So, are all DVD recorders like this, have I been unlucky, is it just HDD that make noise. I haven't got super sensitive hearing, but when I'm watching a film I don't want to hear whirring/buzzing sounds all the time. I'm obviuosly sending the unit back, but should I try a replacement Tosh, or maybe a Panasonic, or if I want no sound should I go for a non-hdd unit. If all HDD units make noise I'd rather just have a disc only burner.
