If you're after a no nonsense DVD recorder which isn't fussy about disc type, then the LG DR175 should be your first port of call.
With the ability to record on DVD - (minus) and + (plus) discs in both write once only ( R ) and rewritable (RW) discs, the DR175 is a truly flexible device. Furthermore, when it comes to playback, the DR175 is equally as generous. DivX, XviD, JPEG and MP3s with or without ID tags are all compatible. Just as comprehensive is the standard socketry. With component, twin SCART sockets, optical and coaxial digital outputs, and a DV input for camcorders, the DR175 tops its class.
When it comes to picture quality, you'll also find that LG haven't taken any short cuts. Using the award winning DVFX recording process, the signal is digitally processed for the highest quality picture possible. The larger your screen, the more noticeable the improvements, but whatever TV you use you'll find your recordings to have a clarity and stability that's missing from other recorders.
Add in easy programming with features such as PDC, and it's clear that the LG DR175 offers everything that a good quality DVD recorder should - disc flexibility, quality recording and ease of use. See just how good budget DVD recorders have become!
