Tosh hard disk DVD duos

Home cinema

Toshiba is once again gunning for home cinema enthusiasts with the launch of a pair of models that combine hard disk and DVD-based recorders.

Due later this month is the £549 RD-XS32 model, which couples an 80GB hard disk with a DVD-RAM/-RW/-R compatible DVD recorder. Users can record in one of 36 quality levels on the hard disk and then transfer footage at up to 12x speed to a disc for archiving. Other features include picture-in-picture, a DVD input for hooking up a camcorder and live TV pause.

There is however a good reason for hanging on until September as the XS32 will be followed that month by the RD-XS33, which offers double the hard disk capacity for between £650 and £750.

Tosh confirmed that its range of recorders next year will include on screen electronic programme guides (in the same vein as the excellent one on the Sky Plus box) – the key feature missing from the products.

We’ll have full details on Tosh’s new range of products next week.
