Philips DVD recorder

Squarely aimed at the consumer market as a VCR replacement, the Philips DVDR 890 gives you the opportunity to record all your favourite TV programs (or other video sources) onto DVD+RW (or DVD+R) discs at the quality setting of your choice.

There are six video modes to choose from, ranging from HQ (high quality) to EP+ (extended play), giving you a recording time between one and six hours, respectively. Once a DVD+RW disc is recorded, it can immediately be watched on almost any other stand-alone DVD player or PC DVD-ROM drive without the need for any finalisation process.

Connectivity on the back of the unit is provided for by a TV aerial, S-Video input and output, RCA video and audio inputs and outputs as well as a coaxial digital audio output. In addition, the front of the player conceals a DV input (FireWire) as well as another S-Video input and RCA video and audio inputs.

The control buttons on the front of the unit are well spaced. Buttons for all major recording functions - such as video mode - and a great big record button help you to record quickly and easily.

The player features Progressive Scan playback (for both PAL and NTSC formats), which doubles the vertical resolution of a picture. It also supports a glut of playback formats, including SVCD - even MP3 discs.

Philips DVD recorder Price: $1999.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
