Sony RDR-DC90

 

HDMI and Scart (in and out) for good connectivity. Good size hard drive. DVD playback excellent. sound quality of Freeview far superior to sky, even on HD channels. Ability to record in long play modes which can still be viewed on other DVD players....

No reminder on programmes only record. Hard drive playback stuttered - contacted Sony who advised a download from their site - now sorted. Picture stutters on initial turn on. Nedd to keep it on standby not to miss any overnight updates

Not as described

 

The Sony is not a particularly bad machine but be aware of one thing. It says it is a Hard Drive recorder and DVD recorder but this is not the case. You can only record directly to the Hard Drive. If you want to put anything onto DVD disc, you have to...

Looks good on paper...

 

I can cope with a single tuner (I use the TV when recording) - but I can't stand the poor response of this box. You can't flick quickly through channels. Erasing a recording off the HDD can take up to a minute?! It takes ages to start up. If you go...

Good purchase

 

Have only had this DVD recorder for a while but very satisfied so far. It is very easy to set up. Setting up recording from EPG could not be easier. Only downfall I have found is that it is a bit slow at starting up and tray opening. Very satisfied...

Sony RDRDC90 Freeview+ DVD Recorder 120GB Hard Disc Drive

 

My new Sony gb digital recorder is working well and the features for recording are very good. The ease of recording and playback is good and the facility to pause live viewing and record on is very useful.

Brilliantly simple

 

When my old DVD player broke, I was delighted to find that there was now such a thing as a recordable DVD player that also included Freeview. I was a bit worried about buying this product following some of the earlier reviews however regarding the set...

Too noisy

 

Hard to set up, I had it in my bedroom, had to move it to sitting room because it is very noisy. Takes two or three minutes to turn off. It then flashes power off for about a minute, very annoying.
