    hi
    probably just for the UK I expect but any input is appreciated.
    i need a DVD recorder and don't want to pay out a wodge of cash until
    sony and the others have sorted out which format is to be used.
    My local supermarket has a Dawoo DVD recorder for 70 pounds.it does
    media recording,+R/RW -R/RW eight hours recording,four recording
    modes,video plus,PDC and video scan.
    As it is so cheap compared to others,what is it missing?will it play
    cd music?or do i have to still have my DVD player.
    I'm not really clued up on these things so any help will be
    appreciated.I will buy better if required just wondered why this was
    so cheap comprared to the 200 quid ones in other shops.
    thanks

    Piece of crap ? That'll be the Daewoo ...

    Seriously, though, it won't have anything missing, apart from build quality.
    Most of these real cheap end ones are multiregion play of DVD as well as
    being able to play CD, VCD, SCD and often MP3 and photo CD as well. The
    recording format is neither here nor there. Bet you're only going to use it
    like a VCR for timeshifting most of the time, so as long as it records an
    acceptable picture and sound for 8 hours or whatever, then any format will
    be fine.

    At the end of the day, for 70 quid, with a year ( and possibly 2 years )
    warranty on it, if the laser is clapped out after a year, then at only £1.20
    a week, it's stood you in nothing, and you can send it to the tip.

    Incidentally, Asda are doing one also for £ 68.99, and I have heard very
    good reports on it. Go for it. Treat your self for Chrissy ...

    thanks to all that replied,got a lot of help from that.To be honest
    was suspect with Daewoo yet there is no ASDA near here,so I'll look at
    the ones in Argos as well,at least I have a fair idea of what to
    expect now.thanks again.
