Sony RDR-HX1000 review

 

It has been a long wait, but Sony's first hard-drive equipped DVD combi for Europe has landed. The RDR-HX1000 is Sony's new flagship (replacing the RDR-GX7 standalone model)

EISA Award - Best Product

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

Nice design, many features

Expensive when I bought it

Consumer review by:

HARD DRIVE FAILS VERY QUICKLY AFTER YOU SPEND A FORTUNE.

 

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.
