Sorry to sound all pathetic and girlie, but I'm flummoxed. I want to buy a DVD recorder as a present, and can't decide which one. I'd decided on the Sony RDRHX900, but found it was out of stock nearly everywhere, and discontinued. Same story with the Panasonic DMR E95H. All I want is a reasonably priced (no more than £550 online) recorder with HDD, compatible with most other recorders, good recording quality, with timeslip and a function that allows home videos (camcorder) to be edited and viewed. Doesn't seem a lot, but I'm getting nowhere fast and any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Cheers for your help.
