Choosing a dvd recorder with hard drive

Having spent the last week reviewing what dvd recorders are available in Ireland that offer value for money, I have shortened the list to two contenders
LG RH-7500 80 GB 320 Euros in Dixons

The LG RH-7500 supports a variety of formats including + and – R. My one gripe is that is does not have EPG.
The 80 GB drive can always be upgraded in the future as its a maxtor ide drive.

    Great review, I was looking at the LG RH-7500 IN Currys Galway and it looked like the best buy. Thanks for the info on the inter Maxtor drive. The one thing I’d love to see on these recorders is a USB interface, so the recorded data could be transferred to PC and vice versa. If you come across the likes please send me a mail.
