Hi all, I'm going to upgrade my DVD Recorder because my Philips 880 is driving me up the wall with its tantrums all the time. The first is the Philips DVDR520H £350. It has a built in Hard Disk and DVD Recorder. However, I've had lots of problems with the current Philips machine - have they got any better? Forums are suggesting not. My Girlies folks have a new Philips TV too, and thats been back to the factory 3 times in 12 months. My mate had one of their TVs and that went back twice. Do they make good stuff any more, or are they a now a nasty brand with a big price tag?? Anyhows, my other choice is the JVC DR-MH20EK £300. This looks nice, but haven't seen a review to compare it to the Philips. Are JVC machines any good? I have one of their VCRs and it hasn't broken in 8 years, so thats good going! Is the interface any good, and is it "missus friendly"?? Any comments or suggestions appreciated.
