    Is this DVD writer our in the UK yet? If so can anyone recommend it. I am looking for a DVD Writer that I will be able to use to transfer all my Videos to DVD. If this is not best can anyone recommend another.
    Thanks

    Surely this is a one off event therefore why get the two combined. Why not buy a dvd recorder hook it up to your VCR then dump the VCr when you no longer need vhs

    Yes I know I could have just bought a DVD writer but I thought it might have been easier with this combined unit. I hoped someone who hasd one could tell me how easy it was to use and if it was a good buy. Also where I could buy it.
    Thanks

    Well I could tell you thats its easy without one. You connect them up via scart and press record on one with play on other. be a lot cheaper, and cheaper to replace of one bit (VHS or DVD burner) goes wrong!

    Like me, you may still want to use video though - in order to view other people's videos if they recorded something you want to watch or to avoid having to copy all the kids' videos to DVD or so that you can record home movies to give to relatives/friends etc.

    If I didnt want a hard disk I would go for the E75 in a shot. As it is I have an E85 and am thinking about adding the Panny DVD player/VCR (xxx31) for backing up DVDs, playing/copying VHS and because the E85 doesnt have a couple of features on DVD playback like zoom etc.

    Lets face it, DVD-R/RW/RAM recorders may be obsolete in a few years anyway as larger capacity media come on stream and also when you start getting freeview built in. So buying separate units (whilst I cant ultimately dispute your logic) doesnt really make alot of difference unless you are buying a cheap and unreliable make.
