Samsung R145 or Toshiba D-R5?

I have narrowed my choice down to either the Samsung R145 and Toshiba D-R5. Consumer Reports gave the Samsung R135 a much better rating for picture quality at XP than the Toshiba D-R5 and I plan on doing lots of recording at XP mode. I assume the R 145 picture quality is equal if not better than the R135. Any opinions from you guys on which to choose (R145 or D-R5)? Pros and cons?

I will be hooking it up to a Sony HDTV LCD and connecting via HDMI with a DirecTV HR20 HD DVR.

Thanks for your help!
