Toshiba RD-97DT review

 

Freeview and 1080p upscaling can't disguise some basic flaws

Decent Freeview and DVD pictures ; Good editing features

No USB ; No dual-layer recording or jukebox functions ; Poor EPG ; Sluggish operation

Terrific picture performance, but frustrating to use and lacks features found on rival recorders

Toshiba RD97DT review

 

Toshiba lowers the spec and price but performance suffers

A full set of features ; DVB and analogue tuners ; Sat link control

Unituitive remote ; No RGB Scart input ; Unexciting picture quality

Toshiba has made one compromise too many in its quest for an attractive bottom line

Toshiba RD-97DT HDD/DVD Recorder

 

Hard-disk/DVD recorders are more than just functional, so can Toshiba finally make you replace that aging VHS VCR?

Joining USB connection on the list of notable omissions is dual-layer DVD-R and DVD+R recording, which would have doubled the amount you can fit on a DVD, and series link - the Sky+ style feature that enables digital TV recorders to automatically...

Toshiba RD-97DT review

 

A generous 250GB hard-drive and DVD recording bode well for Tosh's latest video box – but can it match the finest Sony et al have to offer?

Holds its own against the best for video recording quality – but those operational quirks and missing features see it fall just short of top honours

Toshiba's hard disk/DVD combo PVR is the most stylish here.

Toshiba RD-97DT

 

Sadly, it lacks a USB port or memory card slots and there's no dual-layer or DVD-RAM recording (although it will play the latter). However, the presence of HDD and DVD-RW (VR) recording means there's a mind-boggling array of editing functions to play...

Picture quality, good price for 250GB recorder

Slow digital channel changing, overly scruffy EP mode pictures, no USB port or card slots

I only use it for recording on hard drive, and watching another digital station at the same time. Like pause live tv.

not a lot.
