LG DVD /USB 80Gb Recorder/ Cinema System 300w for £116.00 - Empire

Found 27th Mar 2008
Can't find many reviews for this but it appears to be a smashing deal and plays DIVx from USB too.

You would be VERY hard pushed to get a decent 80Gb DVD recorder with USB to HDD + HDD to DVD + DVD to HDD copy function WITH Simultaneous Record & Play for anywhere near this price --- and that's WITHOUT the 300w System.

AND Pay by PayPal for an extra 10% reduction. - about £118.00
AND DONT forget 2% Quidco. NOW £116 ish.

Ridiculously good deal. It's still £316 at Amazon. I'm having one.

Paypal vouchers not working for me - anyone any ideas.

got it all wrong

And the X by the spec means it doesn't have it - so this doesn't have HDMI out. Which suddenly makes this start to seem less appealing.
Nor is there optical in.
Nor does it upscale.

:? my bad, yeeee have to agree now, not good if you want to hook it up to other things

And I think the answer for the Xbox 360 is yes, on bog standard connections (is composite the right terminology?).

This is good, but basic - unless I'm misreading it.

Original Poster

I think OPTICAL IN 'X' means NO Optical in!!

Also likewise Coaxial in X

Please correct me if this is not the case.

also NO Upscaling either. (Shows upscalling folleowed by a 'X')

Original Poster

Huh. SNAP on the replies.

Going off the Amazon site though - it says people who bought this also bought the HDMI lead.
I'm confused...and will hold off buying it.

Which I'll no doubt regret when I wake up tomorrow to find it all kinds of connectivity that I was after.
Pah.

Ourdave, I've also tried paypal without joy. Any clues which voucher code works with this? Still seems a cracking deal for a low tech type like me.

Original Poster

Anyone.

This doesn't have freeview so I was wondering/
Does it have a built in Analogue Tuner?

Nope - maybe the paypal deal has ended, it said 31st March but it's not far off now.

I'm not getting it now anyway, not because it's not a good deal, but because I was hoping I could hook a few things up to it, and if I can't, I'm as well saving up for one that will do what I need.

if only lg bothered to hav the manual up on their website, or even put a pic of the rear!!!

Anybody found a comprehensive review?

good deal for the specifications your gettings

]Kevin York has posted some Empire Direct vouchers... Don't know if this might fall under TV catagory?!?
