Hi all, At the weekend I had a demo of the new Sony RDR-GX7 in my local Sony Center, it looks a top class bit of kit. I took along a Memorex or Traxdata DVD-RW disk bought from a computer shop so I could get a recording to play on my home dvd players. The machine formated the disk ok but then would not record anything onto it so the guy in the shop used a Verbatim DVD-RW which recorded perfectly, could just have been a duff disk but who knows. They recorded in two different modes i.e. 1hr and 3hr so I could compair the quality between the two. The DVD-RW played no problem on my very old Hitachi 250E player and I could see little difference between the two recording modes, very impressive indeed. I did not have a DVD+RW though to see if there were any differences in the recording formats some how I dont think there will be. I would have one, its a very good looking and easy to use machine and will probably last for years if the build quality is anything to go by and the fact it can record on two types of DVD RW disks is great but at £800 its way too expensive just now. It still looks like the Panasonic recorders are the way to at the moment but my DVD players will not play ram so I will wait for the Sony to come down in price as I found it to be that impressive. Klippie.
