Sony Japan intros 2 new 3-in-1, or should I say, all-in-one recorders that feature DVD, VHS and HDD in one device. Big brother, RDR-VH95 comes with a 250HDD and smaller sibling, RDR-VH85 with 160GB. Both of components have 2 terrestrial analog tuners and 1 regular tuner for recording on a VHS. RDR series capable of program guide and scheduled recording. Both have i.Link firewire front input so you can dump all your movies on to the HDD or DVD.
DVD drive can handle DVD+RW/+R/-RW/-R, DVD-RAM disks. Recording time on a 250Gb model is from 60 hours to 430 hours ( you dont want to do this ) depending on the quality and on a 160GB its from 39 to 206.
