EISA Award - Best Product

Expert review by: EISA (

Sony RDR-HX1000


Finally it is possible to record in much better quality than the average DVD. Instead of the usual 9 megabits per second, the huge 250 GB hard drive on this attractive combi-machine is recording with a maximum of 15 megabits per second. What a picture it

If you can rent it do so.But do not think that spending 700 will buy you any sort of long term reliability.

It is a truly wonderful machine when it works.Very easy to quickly understand the controls, and lots of memory.

As you approach the end of the warranty all is well.After the warranty my machine suddenly realised it did not need to function anymore and so committed seppuka of the hard drive.
