Can you help me identify a good choice for a DVD recorder?
While I have used a few DVD+/-RW drives and different DVD creation software, I often find the software to be clunky at best, and the results less than satisfying due to choppy video or audio.
In addition, it seems PC-based DVD recording requires high end components to get decent results. Perhaps some of the PC-less DVD recorders may be a better option?
I came across one by Sony at Frys: the DDVDirect system. Any good?
What about some of the other recorders out there. On the low end, Samsung produces one for about $90. Is it junk? What are key features/specs I should be looking for?
What limitations do these non-PC versions suffer from?
Do you always need a TV/monitor attached to use them or do many offer LCD displays, etc?
Do they write only in one format etc?
I am mainly looking for something that works well with Digital Video cameras to transfer video recordings to DVD for internal distribution: training presentations, events, etc…
The simpler the better (as long as it is also reliable) so that novices can operate it.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
