While most of us still use a tape-based VCRs for time-shifting our favorite programs, others have opted for hard drive-based products such as TIVO and Replay. These products work well, but limit the portability offered by the DVD format. Sony's new...

Sony RDR-GX7 DVD Recorder

 

If you're like me, you're sick and tired of format wars. When will these companies learn that having to choose between formats only leads to consumer frustration and, sometimes, outright rebellion? Perhaps this is why DVD-Audio and SACD have not taken...

The RDR-GX7 might be a relatively small step for a consumer electronics company, but it's a giant leap for consumers who don't want to worry about which recordable DVD format to use. If you want to record a disc that will be compatible with most normal...

RDR-GX7 DVD Recorder

 

This is my short term solution until I buy my CoCoon in Japan where the DVD Recorder, Harddrive and network capabilities are intertwined into one system. It is worth the value if you want to make all of your VCR tapes into DVDs (watch out for copy...

Multifacet DVD Writer (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW) capacity no DVD+R or DVD-RAM writable functionality. Able to interface with Satellite system flawlessly (Sony DP1) and use the Enhanced Programming Guide to schedule recordings. Erases DVD-R programs prior...

i-Link is great for DV recorders (works well with my Sony DV) but will not interface with Sony VAIO system to record a DVD off of the hard drive or the DVD drive.

SONY RDR-GX7

 

The Sony RDR-GX7 is the first DVD recorder to support three disc formats: DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW. It allows easy dubbing of video materials from digital camcorders to DVD disc, via I. Link, and built-in editing programs enable users to eliminate...

Great build quality and slick, tweakable menus.

 

I picked up the Sony RDR-GX7 at a local electronics retailer this past August for nearly $100, as this was old display stock that sat around since it was released, back in 2003. No one bit on it for quite a while, so I did - they had several ...

Sony RDR-GX7 DVD Recorder / Player

 

Bought the Sony to replace a Philips DVDR985 that decided it no longer liked the brand of DVD+RW blank disks I had purchased in bulk. The Philips had some nice features as well as a wide variety of recording speeds (from 60 minutes to 8 hours, with ...

Sony RDR-GX7 is not a high end product

 

Sony is like Levis jeans, higher priced, good quality and not that much better than the rest. Read on... I recently bought an el-cheapo Dititrex DVD recorder for $400AUD which is OK but very fiddly to use, bad remote control layout. Then an LG ...

Lots of inputs & outputs

Higher priced unit and limited +RW operation

Help needed

 

When I try to use the one touch dub function on RDR GX7 with my Panasonic digital camcorder (NV-gs7), via the i.Link cable, it rewinds the tape, but it won't record. Instead, it gives me an onscreen error message saying In point or out point not found,...
