TechIMO checked out the Lite-on LVW-5045 Recorder
Following upon the success of computer-based optical disc drives, the industry moved forward with standalone DVD recorders, such as the Lite-On LVW-5005 we reviewed here at TechIMO last year. Unlike hard disk recorders, a DVD recorder allows for ease of portability and a near infinite storage capability – just pop in a new DVD disc when the current one is full. However, relying solely upon optical discs limits available recording times, thus available programmable recording is limited just as with old VCR technology. Want to record multiple televisions programs while away on a trip? If you are recording several hours of video, who is going to be there to change the DVD disc?
