Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder w/ 160GB Hard Drive - $339.99
Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder w/ 160GB Hard Drive Buy.com has the Panasonic DMR-E95HS DVD Recorder (including a 160GB hard drive and DVD recorder) for $339.99. I'm VERY tempted. I usually try to avoid things that will make me watch more television. I rarely video tape anything since the X-Files went off the air. However, Law and Order (the original) qualifies. I'm just afraid I'll end up with 200 hours of episodes to watch! LOL! Anyway, this is a pretty cool unit. The number one reason I like it is that it does NOT require a subscription! It also uses the TV Guide On Screen information. You can dump information from a video camera to this unit. And, it has a built-in DVD recorder that does DVD-R and DVD-RAM (it does not appear to do dual-layer, though.) The biggest downside is that it does not have a "network" connection. For this kinda money, I expect my gadgets to be networkable! :-)
Here are some stats on this little jewel. TV Guide On Screen 8-day program guide (listings for local broadcast and cable TV). Built-in 160GB hard drive for recording/playback. Records to DVD-RAM and DVD-R. Digital video (IEEE 1394) input for use with compatible camcorders. Plays DVD-Video, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and Video CD. Plays DVD-Audio (stereo only), CD, audio CD-R & CD-RW, and MP3 CD-R & CD-RW. SD Card slot for displaying or transferring JPEG or TIFF digital photos. PC Card (Type II) slot for other memory card types (adapter not included). Progressive-scan mode for smoother video with HD-compatible TVs (via the component video output). De-interlacer with 3-2 pulldown processing. 54MHz/10-bit video DAC. 181-channel NTSC tuner. VCR Plus+®, timer, and manual recording. IR blaster for timer recordings with a cable box. Two stereo audio recording modes: Dolby® Digital 2.0 and PCM. Optical digital output for Dolby Digital/DTS®/PCM. 3 sets of A/V inputs (composite and S-video), including 1 front-panel set. 2 sets of A/V outputs (2 composite, 2 S-video, and 1 480i/480p component video). RF input/output. Remote control (multibrand for TVs).
