    Does anyone know anything about the Philips DVDR3300H DVD/HDD recorder ?

    Argos have started selling this model, and I wondered if it is any good.

    Have Philips fixed the 'No Disc' problems with previous players ?

    Every generation of Philips DVD recorders has had problems - thankfully for Philips there are always people who are unware of this who get suckered into buying there new models.

    Specs wise you can get much better for the same money - so why bother?

    I wouldn't advise anyone to buy any CE electronics before reading at least one objective review, and you need to do that with your requirements set out clearly and the specifications of at least ten machines in front of you. You should choose the one which fits your requirements at the best price.

    To answer your direct question, Philips seem to have solved the 'No disc' error, probably by fitting decent OPU components to start with and adding an internal fan to the post-8x0 series. However some of their recent 61x machines seem to have been launched 'unfinished', where firmware updates are necessary to correct annoying behaviour like random SCART source switching and the needless permanency of the fan.

    Ok Thanks.


    I might go for a Sony 510 instead.

    I've had four Philips machines 880, 890, 70 and 75.
    Only the 75 remains alive.

    Two of them have been replaced with a Pioneer DVR530H and Pioneer DVR420H.
