Packed full of useful features, there was little Sony could do to improve upon the RDR-HXD870. Yet improve upon it is exactly what they have done! Now featuring x-Pict Story, the RDR-HXD890 enables you to frame your photos with the appropriate look and feel through sound and transition effects. The final result can be burnt onto DVD and shared among family and friends. The RDRHXD890 continues with a total of 34 possible recording settings and a built-in 160GB HDD; making it a superbly flexible recording device. This gives the potential for an amazing 455 hours of material to be recorded without the need for a single blank disc! Of course, this Sony DVDR will also record on a wide variety of blank discs including DVD-R Dual Layer (VR and video) and DVD+R Double Layer. Unlike some rivals the Sony RDRHXD890 will also happily playback DivX and Super VCD discs.
