    After having tried a gx7 at home I would say, not for me thanks. I found the PQ to be very poor on this machine. Never tried the RX900 but on the basis of my experince with the gx7 I would be very very cautious.

    I found the PQ on playback of commercial dvds to be very grainy and lacking focus. I originaly bought the gx7 to replace an older Philips dvdr880 and i noticed the gx7's poor pq imediately. The recording quality on the gx7 wasn't so bad but still had some of that grainyness.

    Since replaced the gx7 with a Panny E85 and the PQ on comercial dvds is much better. Although not quite as good as my standalone player. But next to the gx7 there is no comparison the e85 is miles ahead. Also, I can't beleive that I ever considered buying dvdr without a HDD as I can now record off air stuff of any lenght at the top recording quality. Any film on the gx7 over an hour long needed to be compressed and the PQ once again suffered.


    Anyway, I can't recomend the E85 highly enough and I'm a very picky punter.

    regards
