Sony RDR GXD500 DVD Recorder

If you wish to make the transition to digital television and are looking for an all round solution, then may we suggest the Sony RDR GXD500 Freeview Receiver / DVD Recorder. Imbued with the famous Sony quality, this unit combines a Freeview set top box, DVD player and DVD recorder in one. The digital TV tuner is amongst the best, and will give you sharp digital TV pictures (providing of course you live in an area where you have a reasonable digital TV transmission signal). The RDR GXD500 then allows you to record digital TV straight onto DVD - on the high quality mode, you won't be able to tell the difference between the original broadcast and the recording. This is a great buy and the unit really looks the business too.

Rumours abound that the next version of the Xbox will be called the Xbox 360 rather than the Xbox 2. The thinking behind this is that Xbox 2 would sound dated in comparison to the forthcoming Sony PlayStation 3. We'd agree with that.

Features of the next Xbox may include wireless controllers and plug in hard drives.

DVD Rental

If you've just bought yourself a lovely new DVD player, and are wondering how you are going to afford to watch all the latest DVDs, then give DVD rental a try. It's particularly suitable for people who are either:

1) totally mad about movies (because it works out MUCH cheaper)


2) hopelessly disorganised (because there are NO late fees)
