    Yes but how long will it function for? In my experience recent (2-3 yrs old) Sony products have been pretty unreliable. When it comes to a repair the product is usually aright off as new products are on the market at a similar cost of the reapair!

    If you only want DVD quality recordings for 12hrs you're better off with something like an HS2 for about £550 (if you want to archive just dub each two hour odd film to -R for 50p each).

    Blue ray has a another killer ap - Hi def tv recording and prerecorded hi-def discs.

    With plenty of 1280 x 720 resolution projectors, lcd tv's and plasmas becoming the norm at affordable prices, 720p tv stations and films on disc will soon be in great demand when the cost of blue ray comes down.

    When 1902 x 1080 displays become the norm we'll all crave 1080p material and Blue Ray should cope with that too.

    576p is ok but it doesn't really cut the mustard.
