Not for me

Do not buy this machine, We bought one about two years ago and constantly had problems recording, they changed the dvd deck and still no good, it dosen't matter what media you use it is unpredictable, it plays dvd's but now if i record and then try to finalise the disk it ruins the disk, i have downloaded firmware updates and installed them (when i was finaly able to connect to the download site) still no good, i have a £230 dvdplayer. Do Not Buy
