Toshiba RD-98DT HDD/DVD Recorder

 

Does Toshiba's RD-98DT HDD/DVD Recorder show a marked improvement over last year's model? Danny finds out.

Now for the vital statistics. The hard-disk capacity is 250GB, which offers up to 424 hours of recording time on the hard-disk, but you'll only get that if you record everything in the lowest quality SLP recording mode. Using recording modes with...

Toshiba RD98DT review

 

This is a good recorder but there's some great competition about, meaning this Toshiba doesn't do enough to be considered an all-star all-rounder

250GB hard disk drive ; strong spec and features ; fine DVD playback

Underwhelming interface and remote ; slight flaws in TV tuner and highest recording modes

This is a good recorder but there's some great competition about, meaning the Toshiba doesn't do enough to be considered a five-star all-rounder

Toshiba RD-98DT review

 

A solid recorder let down by a lack of key features

Picture quality ; Improved interface ; Freeview+ ; 1080p upscaling

Recordings via Scart ; No USB, jukebox functions or DL DVD recording

A solid workhorse recorder with a large hard disk and some user-friendly features, but it lacks the wow factor of its big-name rivals

Toshiba RD-98DT

 

It gets off to a good start with the inclusion of Freeview+, which brings series recording into the equation (not found on its predecessor, the RD-97DT).

250GB capacity, Freeview+ functionality, recording quality

No USB port, jukebox functionality, RGB input or dual layer DVD recording

Great product, great price..

 

Having searched the high street for a competitive recorder, I settled on this unit to match my Toshiba LCD.

Tosh recorder, making TV viewing less stressful

 

Having just got my own flat and having become used to my parents Sky Plus box, I decided I needed the convience of Sky plus in my life without subscription. I bought one of these a few months back and it's been as good as Sky+ - simple to use and ideal...

Good machine for the money

 

Not had this long and am really enjoying it. I've not had a issue with it's opperation and 250GB capacity means even with all the other halves soaps i've still got nowhere near filling it. Overall recommended.

Poorly designed and frustrating

 

I bought this as a first step into the HDD/DVD recorder market, while most features were OK and picture quality was good etc. there was one major flaw: it is impossible to change the channel using the EPG without recording!!
