Consumer review (epinions.com)

Home-video entertainment at its best!

 

I'll start off by saying that I really like this system. Has an Easy NAVI menu that lets you preview your stuff. The DVD player has a huge built-in 160 GB hard-disk drive (HDD) with DVR functionality and in LP mode you can get 135 hours of recording! ...

Built-in 160 GB, 135 hours of LP recording! 24x DVD-R, 12x DVD-RAM. Plays almost everything!

Not firmware upgradeable, no front panel, only with non-region-coded or Region 1 discs.
