This review is from: Pioneer DVR-440HX-S 80GB HDD DVD Recorder - Silver (Electronics)
I bought one of these yesterday, and after an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't get any picture (I had the scarts connected the wrong way....duh)I finally had it up and running. After a previous horrendous experience with a Goodmans DVD recorder, I was less than optimistic but, what a great piece of equipment! As with other reviewers, the 80 gig HD is ample for my needs and the picture quality is outstanding even at extended play. It also plays films made on my PC, mp3's and countless other stuff. It isn't really a pretty machine, but that's not an issue for such quality , although the remote control is awful. My only real gripe is that it won't play region 1 discs, but we can't have everything. You can even record a programme to the HD and watch a DVD at the same time. All in all, very impressive.
