World Cup special: Best DVD recorders and PVRs

Capture the pain and the passion of this year's World Cup with a high-definition PVR

Panasonic DMR-XW350 (RRP: $879)

The Panasonic DMR-XW350 is a great DVD recorder with a 250GB hard drive as well as YouTube and Google Picasa connectivity. It comes with two tuners for recording HD-TV to a DVD or the aforementioned built-in hard drive.

Setting up the Panasonic DMR-XW350 is a synch. Once you’ve connected the antenna and the television and switched everything on, it’s a simple matter of selecting your state from the list and letting the built-in DVB-T tuner do the rest.

The Panasonic DMR-XW350 uses a twin DVB-T tuner that can record two channels at the same time. You can also record HDTV content directly to DVD-RW discs – this is an option that many PVRs lack. [You forgot to shoe-horn a World Cup reference into this one. Pipped at the last minute! Etc. – Ed.]

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
