Released April, 2008
The Pros:Easy to use for basic tasks, controls are all simple and obvious. Setup is very plug-and-play, not much to it. Picture is clear and sharp when using the right settings.
The Cons:Can overheat and begin to fail if not properly ventilated. Doesn't upscale output to anything approaching HD. Won't record a lot of programs due to copyright protection.

discs load slowly, have to wait a long time for the machine to read them
recording on a timer at the quality you want is a little confusing, need to read the manual
