Pioneer DVR-LX61D DVD/HDD Recorder


Could this be the best DVD recorder available? If you value features over all else, then yes.

We defy anyone to spend a couple of days in the company of the DVR-LX61D and come away unimpressed. It’s quite simply a sublime combi recorder that boasts a stupefying range of features, immaculate recording performance and bomb shelter build quality....

This promising Pioneer is let down by lacklustre video and audio performance

Stylish unit, easy to use ; doubles as musical media centre ; impressive functionality

Pioneer DVR-LX61D


Pioneer really do make the best. It was easy to set up and works perfectly. The 250 GB hard drive will certainly take a long time to fill up. The high speed copy function (for copying from HDD to DVD) is a great improvement over my previous Liteon DVD...

The remote control is a little clunky and probably has too many buttons. It lacks the ergonomic design of Sony remotes.
