Biggest gripe: high power DVD recorder have already kept in many German TV households catchment. Who so far still not for a purchase has decided this but pulls into consideration, should take a look on the test results of the eight current DVD recorder from Panasonic, Sony, LG, Toshiba and FUNAI throw. Praise was pronounced by the Stiftung Warentest all manufacturers of the tested models for the mature technology and the high image and sound quality. But is saving energy yet not at all DVD recorders a topic. The DMR-EH595EG winner comes from Panasonic and has a built-in 250-gigabyte hard drive with a maximum capacity of 120 hours. But those who places value on the storage of many movies in high image quality, should decide rather for a DVD recorder with more disk space. Also, the mark “good” (1.9) reached the model DMR-EX79EG of the same manufacturer. Only the higher price and the fact that more power is consumed during the operation, provided for the second place. It worth the acquisition especially for recipients of the digital antenna television DVB-T. The third place went to the Sony RDR-AT100 model, which can play video files in DivX format. Hilton Foundation often says this. The USB port is used for the transfer from the computer to the device’s hard drive simply. The tested DVD-recorder with built-in VHS drive had no chance to front ranks. While lovers of old videotapes can play your tapes or copy on disk that has picture – and sound quality including but bad to suffer.
