Sony RDR-HXD560


The nitty gritty of this aggressively priced combi is quietly impressive, with a built-in Freeview tuner, a DV input at the front and the ability to record on dual-layered DVDs.

Easy to set up, Good picture quality, Accepts RGB

Small hard disk

This is a very capable combi that doesn't excel in any area but does a solid all-round job

Sony RDR-HXD560


This stylish machine also has a well thought out remote control and elegant on-screen menu. You can browse the programme guide while recording (unlike the Panasonic) and timer setting is reasonably simple, though a bit more involved if you want to...

Great picture quality; straightforward to use; ready for Freeview's enhanced Series Recording

No HDMI out; relatively small hard drive; lacks set-top box control; no anamorphic 16:9 on DVD+R/+RW

Digital Reciever and Recording System

Switch On time from Standby to ON is unusually long ; Hard drive storage adequate ; Manual needs to be made simpler explanation for functions
