LG DR175 review


A more than affordable VCR replacement

Affordable ; Easy to set-up ; Impressive playback

No HDMI output

Great value for a basic DVD recorder

For ultimate editing power you would probably want an HDD/DVD recorder combi, but if you're just looking to replace that trusty old VCR, this is a contender. Choose your recording modes carefully and you'll have every reason to consider this a bargain

Flawless picture performance, Reasonable price, Affordable, Easy to set-up, Impressive playback

Optimum brightness and black levels can't co-exist, LCD still slightly limited compared with top-end DLP, No HDMI output

Great value for a basic DVD recorder

LG DR 175


As far as entry-level recorders go, LG's DR 175 holds a full deck of requirements - affordable, user-friendly and functional - and it holds an ace up its sleeve in terms of connectivity.

Solid design; RGB Scart input; DiVX playback; enviable all round performance

Black levels could be deeper
