1 1/2 years is a long time. I wouldn't assume that any brand is good just because an older version was good. It pays to check a few  review sites and forums to see if the current version you're interested in is still OK. All of the "Brands" are tending to mix and match oems now that the R&D emphasis is moving to higher density recorders like Blu-Ray.
