Looking For A DVD Recorder Recomendation

My Pioneer DVR-225 died last night (No complaints, it has a ton of hours on it).

I’m looking for a replacement. Preferably under $200. In the USA. I have a crt television & digital cable with a cable box.

Here’s what matters to me (in order):

  1. Picture Quality
  2. Reliability
  3. Variable Recording speed
  4. If possible, muti region would be nice, but I’m not aware of any hackable recorders & I do have several multi region players, so it’s not required.

Quality is much more important then bells & whistles.

I’m also looking into getting the Pioneer repaired, but only if it’s cheap.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
