Sony RDR-DC305

 

The upgrade to 1080p for normal dvds. Being able to record tv through the tv guide. Image quite good.

Dialogue could better when watching dvds at low volume. Sometimes takes an age to switch from the tv guide to hdd or the title list and back again.

Reads both DVD-R+/- Accepts USB devices like memory sticks and external hard drives - simple to use links in with Samsung TV very easily

Always want to switch off if you select the device from the TV Anynet device mode cannot copy from DVD's even ones you have made yourself which is a pain

What's good: Firstly the build quality. It is clearly well put together and laid out. The on screen display is clear and easy to read and there are no glitchy menus, sound and video options are flexible and straightforward just what you would expect...

I upgraded to this model because my old one could not cope with the large image size from my camera. This one does exactly what it says on the tin. Compared with the old one it is quicker and easier to set programme recording. I had no problem with set...

Has a seemingly pedestrian delete function and takes a while to load its content every time it is switched on from cold.

Usually very happy with Sony products and if this was the first Sony Freeview HDD we purchased probably would have rated it much higher.

Disappointed this upgrade to a previous 250k recorder by Sony we purchased was not an improvement and proves more difficult to operate. Sony got this upgrade wrong.

Good image quality if you record on SP quality.

The display on the front is way too dull, very hard to read. Very slow to put titles on recordings.
