Sony RDR-GXD310 v Panasonic DMR-ES20D, Any reviews???


Active Member
I was wondering if anyone has got the machine or read a review of Sony's new freeview DVD recorder the GXD310 and how it compares to the Panasonic ES20D.

I think the GX310 can record on dual layer +R discs, does not have an analogue tuner unlike the ES20D but just like the Panasonic lacks a i link socket. Also lacks the 4 hr full DVD resolution LP recoding Mode of the Panny.

However GX 310 has intelligent chaptering (can someone explain this?) which the ES20D lacks.

Panasonic has a distinct price advantage £279 rsp for the ES20D against £349 rsp for the GXD310. Cheapest price on the net for ES20D is £199 at and for GXD310 is £277 at
