Considering purchasing one of these, a quick overview please seen as there's so many owners out there (to save me reading through all 24 pages of this thread!) on what's good/bad about this player and most importantly would you recommend it compared to other makes/models for similar price? Mainly interested in it's recording quality and ease of use when editing programmes on the HDD before transfering to DVD-R as that is all it shall be used for i.e. I have a seperate Denon 1930 dvd player for playback of dvds/divx. Many thanks. Cheekster. P.S. Did ask this on the main Sony RDR-HXD860S thread but did not get a single reply!
