Why can’t Humax just offer 120 or 160 GB model. 40 Gb model seems silly. price difference between 40 gb and 80 gb is not much.

No problem, I buy one and throw away 40 gb and installed 200 gb I bought for 100 dollars.

As a former Humax Tech Rep (I quit) their roadmap includes releasing larger capacity units for more $. The early unit had cooling issues and its all about the money.

Why is many stand alone DVD Records with DVD-RW, not DVD+RW. In Compusa and Best Buy it have plenty supply of DVD+RW but limit supply of DVD-RW and almost no 25 or 50 discs case of DVD-RW. Except for Office Depot, it have 4x DVD-RW which works great with Humax DVD-RW. 20 Minutes to record full disc.
