Are you referring to to me or to ChrisSwanson72?


'Cause my account is still very much open and I'd very much like to complete the purchase at the price he offered.

It looks like a DVR-320-S DVD recorder. No HDD in that one.

Indeed it does, sorry for the false siting then. It's just that it looked more substantial than a HDD-less model and even the remote looked to have more buttons than the average HDD-less model.
Wow, $500 bucks and that was in the early 00s, figuring in inflation and it really shows what a bargain something like a new Magnavox w/HDD is for less than $300!

Same price as the DVR-RT500 DVD/VHS combo I bought in 2005.

The DVR-320-S looks like the little brother of the DVR-520H-S ($799), but without the HDD.
520 on top.


The 520 remote looks pretty much the same as the 320 but has HDD + DVD buttons at the top.
520 remote on left.

As I've posted before I briefly had one of those DVR-RT500 DVD/VHS combos in '05, purchased at Sams Club, I think it was being clearanced out for $349. I was using my first DVDR, a Panasonic ES-30v combo for my standard and I noted several missing features on the RT500 so I returned it after a few days. It was this negative experience with Pioneer that made me kind of write them off, something I kind of wish I hadn't done as it sounds like their HDD models were quite a bit different than the outsourced RT500.

Man I wish I had the time and energy to read up on all the reasons to have one of these units. I have a Sony RDR-HX750 that I bought when on was on a project assignment in Canada. Probably got it around 2007 or so and used it once to transfer some old VHS tapes to disc and it's been sitting in the closet ever since. I just looked on eBay and two sold in the last few months for like $500-$600.

I was thinking of selling it on eBay but part of me is wondering what I am missing here if these type of units are such high demand. I've got the manual and remote here but having a hard time tracking down the box. Why are these type of units so popular?

Because you have in machine storage and you can edit all your captures in machine when you feel like it, watch em, burn em whatever. The bigger the hard drive the more you can capture and deal with it later, it's just so much easier ande convenient for everything and you don't even have to burn a disk unless you want to keep it for later after the drive is full. It's like a poor mans Tivo or DVR setup.
The bad part is most systems are digital now so soon the tuner and all that will be pretty much useless and many people are into HD as well, like myself. If you have a use for it and it still works in your area it'd be great, but if you want to get some money out of it I'd sell it soon before you miss the usefull demand for it.

I think I will. I have U-Verse so I really don't have a use for this now. I guess I had something still on the hard drive still. File was 2.7 gb and it burned to a disk and finalised in about 7 minutes. Seems pretty cool but not sure I'd ever use it much.

$50 for a HDD Panasonic that says it hasn't been opened(although it was originally purchased as a open box item for $799 eek.gif)! Probably only 20 minutes from me.
Too bad it's a '02 model with the black level bug, no thumbnails and only full resolution in XP and SP. A classic for sure(first HDD Panasonic) but I'll pass smile.gif
Probably built like a tank, wonder how the caps are doing........
