Expert review by : David Smith (

Philips DVDR3305 DVD recorder


With plenty of HOT deals floating around this Christmas, is it wise to opt for the cheapest model? We take a look at Philips' moderate offering hoping to last you longer than up to the January sales.

Excellent recorded images; solid playback images

No progressive scan output; limited editing

Those on a budget should ignore the ultra cheapies and opt for a model like this, which combines value for money with genuine quality.

Philips DVDR3305 review


Philips has finally made a dual-compatible DVD recorder

Good value

Lack of component outputs

For the cash, it's not a bad option for the bedroom, but it's not exactly trail-blazing
