    While capable of producing some of the finest performing DVD players around, Sony hasn't tended to look as comfortable at the ultra-budget end of the market as some of its rivals

    The combination of DVD player and VHS recorder still makes a fair amount of sense. DVD is without doubt the best way of viewing movies on a television and VHS is an incredibly affordable means of recording

    Despite being launched towards the tail-end of 2006, the RDR-GXD360 is still the only standalone DVD recorder in Sony's current range, which shows how much faith the company has in it.It'll record onto four of the five DVD formats, the exception being DVD-RAM

    With the great analogue switch-off getting ever nearer, a DVD recorder should feature a built-in Freeview tuner as a matter of course. Amazingly, many do not, but Sony is not about to fall into that trap with the RDR-GXD360

    The nitty gritty of this aggressively priced combi is quietly impressive, with a built-in Freeview tuner, a DV input at the front and the ability to record on dual-layered DVDs.

    The easiest way to record digital TV is with a hard-drive recorder, but those are geared towards people who record hours of TV without necessarily keeping anything long term

    Sony DVP-NS9100ES review

    9  

    Sony's 'ES' products represent the high end of the brand's product range, so you don't have to be a genius to figure out that the NS9100ES is currently Sony's flagship DVD player.

    Sony's budget deck is a slimline model with an uncluttered fascia that'll win admirers from the minimalist school of design. It isn't particularly distinctive, but there certainly isn't anything off-putting about the look
