Toshiba D-R17DT review

 

As standalone DVD recorders go, the D-R17DT boasts a fairly impressive feature list, including 1080p, 1080i and 720p upscaling plus a built-in Freeview tuner - great value for money for £200

Picture quality ; 1080 uscaling

Slow to change channels ; Poor EPG ; No RGB inut or i.Link

Toshiba D-R17DT DVD Recorder

 

Toshiba's D-R17DT is a traditional DVD recorder that also boasts a Freeview tuner. Danny finds out if it's worth nabbing one now.

The five recording modes (XP, SP, LP, EP and SLP) enable you to fit between one and eight hours of recordings onto a disc, but the picture quality decreases the lower down the list you go.
