Toshiba has added a couple of new DVD recorders to its range –
the £170 D-R150 DVD Recorder and the £240 D-VR15 DVD Recorder/VCR combi.
Both machines offer DVD-RW / DVD-RAM / DVD-R recording, timeslip recording (Chase TV or Pause TV), PAL progressive and component video outputs, and editing features. Both are JPEG and MP3 compatible, and feature 32 event, 2-month timers.
It’ll be interesting to see what the take up is on the D-VR15 DVD / video recorder combi. Do British consumers still want a VHS machine under their TV? The words ‘legacy player’ spring to mind, though usefully the recorder does allow its owners to port VHS recordings on to DVD. Both models are on sale now.
