Toshiba RD99DT review

 

Plentiful recording and editing tools cover the operational cracks

Recording and editing features ; DVD picture quality

Cluttered EPG ; remote ; No dual layer recording ; Freeview pictures

Poor picture quality and operational awkwardness mean we can't whole-heartedly recommend this machine

Toshiba RD99DT DVD/HDD Recorder

 

It has its limitations, but if you can see past them the RD99DT isn't without merit.

The RD99DT features a Freeview tuner with the full range of Freeview+ features, such as Series Link, Split Recording and Alternate Instance Recording, which alerts you when programmes clash and suggests other slots when that same programme is being shown.

No problems

 

So far, have experienced few problems. Does what it claims to do without fail. Instruction manual is is a little complicated, but most of it can be ignored. Bought to replace my old DVD recorder, so the increased capacity and the option of hard disk or...
