Very portable and great idea. I was amazed at the size of the product. It does what it says very well, recording from TV and converting to mpeg. I did not try recording from dvd but I guess it would have worked just as well. The menu system should have been better. I though of buying this instead of a dvd recorder but problem is I still have to port onto a DVD somehow.
You need a Campact Flash card, which you don't get with the bundle, so you got to buy your own. a 1GB card gives you about 50min of recording time on the best quality. You will need a 2GB card just to get a whole game of footie. Then you got the problem of sending it to a DVD. But I guess most people are using this not as a DVD recorder but for porting their films to PSP (as it says on the box). I would have kept it but for one thing, no USB connection. I thought you could simply connect your laptop to it and download the MPEG files onto the laptop and job done. But no you got to use another card reader to send the file to your laptop. All in all to much hussle and they should have put a USB on it.
