Sony RDR-HX715

HDMI output; burns to DVD+R/+RW/-R/-RW discs as well as dual-layer DVD+R; 160GB hard drive; great connectivity options; snazzy menu design; free onscreen programming guide; high-speed dubbing; decent editing options.

Picture quality is very good. Component input for regular TV. I could return it.

Chapter marks, thumbnails DONT write to DVDs. Ridiculous! Bad editing features, confusing menus, VERY expensive.
