Philips DVDR75 review

 

Philips's tandem of 2003 DVD recorders, the DVDR80 and this deck, the DVDR75, look pretty much the same. The less-expensive DVDR75 is missing a few key features, though, namely an electronic program guide (EPG) and stepped-up video-playback quality....

FireWire input; component-video input; solid recording quality in long-play modes; slick styling; relatively painless operation.

Lackluster progressive-scan video playback; no IR blaster for satellite- or cable-box control.

This basic DVD+R deck packs great connectivity into an attractive case, but videophiles should step up to the DVDR80.
