Sharp HDD recorders with Guide+ - any good?



Hi everyone, I was trawling the net for HDD recorders when I came across the Sharp models with Guide+ (DV-HR400H DV-HR480H). Already keeping up to date on the threads here but I have not seen these mentioned.
I am interested in getting a HDD with Guide+ and thought I was limited to Philips and Pioneer, are more manufacturers starting to include it I wonder. The DV-HR480H in particular has a 250Gb HD :D and Ebuyer have it at £355.
Are these new models, and does anyone know anything about them, any good? In particular interested in padding and number of recordings (Philips showstoppers) not as interested in re-encoding but all good stuff if it has it.

Any feedback from anyone?
