Hi, If you have one what's it like? Thinking of getting one from Maplins as its w/in budget.Thanks

You may find Yamada models even cheaper elsewhere.

Try these Google links for retailers:

and perhaps a search for reviews afterwards.

If you are considering a DVD Recorder with a hard drive, then Targa have recently brought one out that has excellent reviews.

Hi freaky,
Thanks for reply. Trouble is I can't get hold of a Targa. They seem to sell thru'Lidl and my local branch never seem to have electronics. If you know of a site on the net or retail outlet let me know. Cheers

Try contacting the UK division of Targa (a German company) on its website:

I got a yamada player, the build quality / reliability is an issue, 2 years on and its a bit iffy. But it plays DIVX and its cheap, have not got the recorder though - just a player.

Thanks Niklarse for info. Still waitng for someone who has this recorder. Maplins selliung thme for £199 with a 80 gig H/D

You can do a lot better than that...:-)

A JVC XV-DDV1 with 80GB HDD, for instance, costs £150 and is a well known and respected brand.
