Dvd Recorder Combo
The DVD recorder combo is one of the most popular types of DVD players today. There are at least three general types of DVD players: the stand alone DVD player, the DVD recorder combo, which pairs the DVD recorder with either the hard drive or the VCR and the DVD recorder combo. The only thing that one DVD recorder combo shares with the other types is that all write information onto a recordable DVD disc.
The DVD recorder combo is a hit in Europe and Asia, but surprisingly fell flat in the US. The reason for this is thought to be the popularity of cable TV, where shows get repeated in the same channel several times, eliminating the need for recording. A DVD recorder combo also costs more in the US than in other countries, another reason for consumers to stick to watching cable or streaming videos on the Internet.
The DVD recorder combo usually stores information using four general formats. These are the DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW DL formats, and you can find recordable DVD discs that comes in each of these formats as well. However, there are some formats that are more popular than the others. For one, the DVD-R is more popular because it is cheaper and is carried by most brands of DVD recorder manufacturers, while the DVD-RAM format is more expensive but is more efficient because it allows for up to 100,000 reuses of DVD discs.
Choosing the right DVD recorder combo
The most expensive DVD recorder combo may not exactly be the one that will suit your DVD recording needs. A DVD recorder combo that costs around AU$ 200 may contain just the right amount of features coupled with ease of control and may suit you more than a DVD recorder combo that costs around AU $ 1,800 or more. However, you can be sure that the more expensive types of DVD recorder combo will feature larger storage capacities and faster writing speeds, as well as other desirable features such as playback options and the ability to play MP3, WMA, and JPEG files.
