Toshiba unveils DVD video recorder

The 8.9 kg RD-2000 is priced at 270,000 Yen (around $4400) and will go on sale in Japan on December 22.

The RD-2000 integrates a 30GB hard disk drive (HDD) and a 4.7GB DVD-RAM drive. It allows users to record up to 33.5 hours of video images.

TV programs can be edited between the HDD and DVD-RAM into separate sections or chapters. You can then access recorded chapters by on-screen thumbnails. A library system holds the title information of all chapters recorded on the DVD-RAM to help find target discs.

Users also have the option of rewinding and playing a program from the start while it is still being recorded. When record is pressed, it starts taping to the remainder of the HDD capacity, even without a DVD-RAM disk.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
