If you really want to compare, then you have to compare re-writable formats. And then you've got a pretty good analogy. DVD-RAM is far superior to either RW mode. And it is the early leader, given Panasonic's adopting that format and taking the early lead in the stand alone recorder business. Beta was far superior.
I suspect the release of the multi-recorder based machines, as Sony's new release of a stand alone recorder, will probably do RAM in. However, there is one joker in this whole game. Some time in the near future someone is going to release a HdTV compatible DVD recorder. And that will be the model which ultimately prospers and wins.
