      Rerecord, don't fade away

      This was the first DVD recorder I owned and at the time of using, 7 years ago, I thought it was ground breaking. There were niggles such as the record timer didn't come on occasionally but what's the worst that can happen if you miss an episode of Corrie or have to search the TV guide for a film the recorder missed?

      The set up was very hard, it took longer than necessary in my opinion and included many settings that would now come as default on a more modern DVD recorder or set top box. Controls were easy though, the remote control was a bit of a muddle but it was designed to be used in tune with our LG TV so I was able to use the TV remote to control most of the functions on the recorder using that one instead.

      The DVD did well to accommodate every disk I gave it including very cheap ones and an array of rerecordable disks. The picture quality and sound quality were excellent, recording direct from the TV gives you the exact same colour and style effects when recorded onto most disks.

      It never gave me a day of trouble and I'm only thinking about it now as we've recently moved house and I'm getting rid of my accumulation of outdated tech. I plugged it in to test this morning and everything still works as it should and by modern standards that's good longevity as it was in use multiple times daily for at least three years and has been kept in storage since I upgraded.

      Hard to find now, the cost when I bought mine was round £180 and that's money well spent.
