Transferring Betamax to a portable hard drive

Not sure if this belongs in this forum, so forgive if it doesn't, but I'm trying to transfer my Betamax tapes to a portable hard drive (instead of DVDs) - first, as that would be easier to sort/edit and, second, as it's easier than having loads of discs.

Are these things any good:

500GB Media Player > Maplin

I'm presuming this is better than a portable hard drive as I can plug it straight into my TV and play but can I still edit via my PC or not?

(By editing I only mean cuting, pasting, merging, reordering content etc rather than anything more technical.
