Can anyone help. I am looking at the JVC XVDDV1 Recorder with 80gb hard disk and i link for under £400. For just a few pound more it seems somehow better than the Panasonic DMRE 60 but I am not sure why. Is it better to record to a hard disk, and will this allow me to have more editing features than recording direct to a dvd. And why do I need a hard disk anyway??If anyone has had experience of this recorder I would like to hear from them.Many Thanks.
