Sony RDR-HDC500 Full HD HDD/DVD recorder (RRP: $799)



As the official sponsors of this year’s FIFA World Cup, Sony is touting the RDR-HDC500 directly to footy fans. It will allow you to capture all the action from South African in astonishing Full HD (it says so right here).

The Sony RDR-HDC500 comes with a 500GB hard drive and possesses a very friendly user interface. The inclusion of a DVD recorder also means you can burn your favourite matches to disc – without using a PC. Other highlights include 1080p upscaling, a USB port for media playback, Bravia Sync, DivX support, a DTS Digital output and the ability to pause live TV. Unfortunately, the RDR-HDC500 doesn't have dual HD tuners or any fast dubbing options. Nonetheless it remains a reasonable option for chronicling the World Cup.
