Well I am sad to say that after 5 years my Panasonic dvd-recorder DRME30 (or something like that) choked and started to act funny. It would cost a bit to fix I expect, even though it ‘likely’ just needs a cleaning. Anyway, Sara and I replaced it with the DRMES15S from Futureshop for an amazing $149.99!! This is a seriously good deal since it does everything my last one did and a little more.
Now it was pretty blatant that it was not created quite as well as the DRME30 (it feels cheaper) but for the price I can’t expect much more; my DRME30 cost A LOT more 5 years ago (I will leave it at that).
