I was planning to buy the Sony 870 DVD recorder but missed the boat a few months back due to cashflow issues when it was only £174.00 Now I can't find the silver model multi-regioned anywhere for less than around £215 including delivery. I know that the new model 890 is due out next week. does anyone have any ideas about prices or how it will compare to the 870? From reading through the 870 posts on here, it seems there are some bugs/problems with the machine. Might they be fixed on the 890 or are we expecting a whole new set of problems?!
