LG makes no secret that it is aiming its DP271 at the budget end of the market. The LG website directs you towards Argos as a point of sale and the price sneaks in just under £100 (inc. VAT).
LG has a habit of producing feature-packed products at knockdown prices, and the £90 DNX190UH continues that trend. Its most interesting feature is the USB port on the fascia to plug in external flash memory devices and play photos or music files
For ultimate editing power you would probably want an HDD/DVD recorder combi, but if you're just looking to replace that trusty old VCR, this is a contender. Choose your recording modes carefully and you'll have every reason to consider this a bargain
