Philips DVDR80 review: Philips DVDR80

 

Philips DVDR80

Guide Plus EPG; component-video input; excellent video processing; solid recording quality in long-play modes; slick styling; relatively painless operation.

Somewhat expensive; crowded remote; Guide Plus may not work with all cable systems.

Loaded with features and delivering great video quality, this Philips is a solid all-around DVD recorder.

DVD RECORDER WITH ON-SCREEN LISTINGS AND EASY TIMER SETTING.

 

A smart looking addition to Philips' range of disc recorders, the DVDR80 extends recording time to eight hours on a disc (at very basic quality) and improves the performance of other settings. It's easy to use and DVD+R/RW discs are compatible in most...

Excellent recording quality and connectivity ; easy to use ; controls digiboxes ; free GuidePlus TV schedules

No progressive scan or built-in hard drive ; limited editing compared to rival formats ; GuidePlus is cumbersome with digital channels
