Can anyone tell me the difference between the 880 and 890 models of the DVD recorders?Apart from ones cheaper of course.
The 890 has a digital camera wotsit connection type thang !
That`ll be a Firewire (IEE 1394) connection then :-)
Thanks people,like your style ;-).I`m thinking of buying one of these so I can transfer some of my old videotapes which are getting a bit ropey now.Any comments?
all I can say is go for it, love my 880 and would not got back to crappy VHS tapes
Before you take the plunge you might want to check out which format you prefer. DVD+R or DVD-R. there are pros and cons to both. But at the moment DVD-R media is very cheap, and looks to be the winner. However no one knows which format will become industry standard.
Undecided I purchased a Philips 880 (DVD+R) and a Panasonic E20 (DVD-R) The Panasonic has the edge on build quality, features, remote, looks, cost of media etc. But I have to admit, the Philips has the better picture quality which is what its all about, i suppose.
Although I have ordered a replacement Panasonic so I am hoping the picture quality will be better. It should be.
P.S. Richer Sounds are supposed to be getting the 880 in for £399.
