(National) April 4, 2005 - In Consumer Reports' electronics lab, dozens of DVD recorders are run through a battery of tests. The machines let you do something you can't do with a digital video recorder like Tivo.
The drawback to those devices are when you record a program, it's recorded onto a hard-drive, which is non-removable.
A DVD recorder recording goes right onto a disc that you can add to your DVD library. Gerard Catapano says another plus with a DVD recorder is preserving your home movies, "The advantage of having a DVD recorder is that it's easy to make copies of your family movies from your camcorder onto a DVD disc."
A simple cable connection makes the transfer a snap.
A DVD recorder can help you transfer your old VHS tapes to disc as well. The least expensive way to accomplish this is get a DVD recorder to hook up your VCR. Testers rated the Panasonic model number DMR-E55 as excellent. It costs $300.
The easiest way to do VHS transfers is with a combination DVD recorder/VCR. Panasonic model number DMR-E75V gets a top rating and sells for about $400.
Both of the recommended DVD recorders have "time-slip" capability, which means it lets you start watching a recording before a program is finished. You can also watch a previously recorded program while you're recording a new one.
