Just wanted to comment on this (apparent) price discrepancy.... The November issue of What Home Cinema feature reviews of the Sony RDR-HXD910 and Panasonic DMR-EH60D recorders. Their test placed the Sony just fractionally above the Panny. The prices in the magazine were £500 (Sony) and £550 (Panasonic). Today on Pricerunner the best prices are £628 (Sony) and £399 (Panasonic)! Am I missing something or was the mag wrong on the Sony price? If it was, and it only managed to win the test by a fraction, it shows what good value the Panny appears to be.
