Akai, now there’s a brand we haven’t heard of in a while, is back in the UK market with a whole range of entertainment goodies, and to make its mark the company is leading off with what is one of the best value DVD recorders to date.
The £200 ADR-5800Di isn’t just cheap, its is multi format too enabling its owners to capture video on re-recordable DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs as well as their write once counterparts.
Other features include eight hour recording, a couple of hours more than some of its rivals, iLink for hooking up a digital camcorder and PAL progressive scan. It also plays back a host CD and DVDs including discs with JPEGs, MP3 and WMAs. It goes on sale at the start of February. More here.
