2.5 HOUR RECORDING SPEED (except Phillips)

vbimport

#1

I’m about ready to give up on my Phillips 985 recorder. I’ve had it for nearly
3 years and it seems to have problem after problem. The 2.5 hours recording
speed is one of the speeds I use most often. Does anyone know if any other
company (besides Phillips) makes a DVD recorder with this speed?
Format DVD+R/RW or DVD+ and - R/RW.

Thanks

Sony RDR-HX510/710/910 have 2.5h recording mode. Sony can write on DVD+/-R and DVD+/-RW (for -RW also in VR mode).
