Hi Well as the videos semi knackered and I never watch tapes anymore figured I'd get my self a dvd recorder. Now I've narrowed it down to the one of the pannys either the e85 or the 55. As far as I cant tell the major difference between the two is just having the harddrive on the 85, is this correct. Reason I'm having a hard time choosing is that I just had Sky Plus installed. So I figured I can copy on to sky plus and then just burn on to dvd- the few programs that I'm likely to want to keep (sadly not that many these days). So seeing as I have sky plus and am not going to be burning that many (I tend to buy the films on dvd that I want to keep)would the 55 make more sense from a value point of view? Also wheres the cheapest place in the uk to order from right now on one if I do go for a 55? I see that RGB Direct do a multi region (which would be a nice bonus, meaning I could junk the other player as well as the vhs and free some more space) at £198.00. Any cheaper around or is that the average price atm? Also which -r would be best to get and where from? Cheers.
