Hi Geeks,

I would like to buy a DVD recorder (Champion's League has started), which one do you recommend?
Cheap, but still good. Should I go for the Panasonic (599$)?
Do I really need internal HDD in the recorder? I'm just gonna record tv programs, that's all.

Thx.

Legal?? I guess you are not buying a DVD recorder to 'record television' or to 'rip movies' then?

I agree with Cellman Tivo rocks! I would never even consider a DVD recorder.

I bought a Sony RDRGX210, because it can burn more formats (-RW,+RW ect) however I should have bought the Panasonic one, because that one has a RAM feature.
You can buy a Panasonic DVD RAM disc and record more, longer programs.

Unfortunately both are in a "cheap" recorder category and therefore no dual layer capability
:(
