    Guys,

    Having finally decided that I could do with a DVD recorder, I have narrowed my choice down to a couple - anyone have any comments as to which to buy or should I look at something else?

    I only have the following pre-requisites - must have firewire and must be able to write to DVD-R's - purely because my PC based writer is -R/-RW and it would make sense for me to avoid having to buy a second type of disk (plus I know my DVD players all work with -R/-RW)


    1. JVC DR-M1.
    2. Panasonic E60

    I did look at the Sony RDRGX3S - but it doesn't seem to have firewire.

    Any preferences? and does anyone know where I can the best prices - RS want £349 for the E60 multi-region - still looking on the JVC as I cant find anyone who specifically mentions its multi-region.

    Cheers

    Personally I'd wait for reviews on the DR-M1 before making any decision, or else go with the established E60.

    I was very keen on replacing my DVDR890 with a DR-M1 as its built-in component output/progressive scan would be very handy for my plasma screen.

    However, the manual for the DR-M1 is online, and it *seems* that RGB SCART input is not an option, which for me makes the E60 the obvious choice from a quality recording perspective.

    No RGB SCART recording? No way I'm parting with my money!

    Easy2BCheesy,

    Do you have a link to the online manual for the DR-M1 ? I checked JVC's website and sadly failed miserably to find it !!

    Cheers
