Performance

 

Sony RDR-HX900

Excellent recording quality; high-speed DVR-to-DVD dubbing; sleek design; cool animated menus; top-notch connectivity options.

Ballyhooed TV Guide programming guide doesn't work with digital cable or satellite; half-baked DVR functionality; no repeat modes; pricey.

Sony's slick, promising 160GB DVR and DVD recorder combo is hobbled by a well-nigh useless programming guide.

Can't pause live TV ; No electronic program guide ; Expensive

Sony RDR-HX900 review

 

Sony RDR-HX900 When we first laid eyes on the gorgeous silver faceplate of Sony's new 160GB DVR/DVD recorder combo, we could barely wait to hook it up to our home theater. Our pulse quickened when we beheld the easy setup and the oh-so-cool animated...

AWESOME Machine!

 

I've owned this DVD recorder for over 3 years now and I absolutely love it! The TV Guide works fine for me and I have digital cable. It is not hooked up to the cable box, though, just from the wall. The TV Guide will reset itself once in awhile to...

Huge 160 GB hard drive, easy to use the TV Guide, compatible with other players

cannot watch a different program while recording

Easy to use, efficient and powerful

 

Only 24 hours after I purchased what for me was a real discovery (I knew almost nothing about digital video recorders), I'm very satisfied with this product that I'm already using as if it had been here for many weeks. I could easily connect each of my...

Sony RDR-HX900 DVD Recorder

 

Uses most blank disks. Does high speed dubbing. Neat looking.

Worthless TV Guide feature. Noisy when off.

TV Guide Doesn't Work If You Have Digital Cable

 

Size of hard drive and relative ease of use.

On-screen programming doesn't work with digital cable.

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Best so far, has pros and cons, but what is perfect?

 

I hesitated first, but finally I plunged in... Installation was a jiffy, no classes taken. You have a large setup template, then a good manual. Like I said before: PROS: 160gb HDD, Easy Menus, Auto-Sensitive detection of peripherals and ...

160GB HDD, Copious In/Outs, Intelligent Software, Manuals!

Misleading COMPONENT VIDEO INPUTS, USELESS! But Wait for BlueRay PVR AND MEDIA!
