While I can appreciate the frustration of those here w/ their hopes bent on universal pause/record (it seems it works in +RW in VR mode)...I'm still happy w/ my 330.
Why? Great PQ and the ability to reliably set 16:9 flags. These features set it apart from many/most recorders out there. Primarily, I want to archive movies I've recorded in HD on my E* DVRs, and my GX-7 has served me well for years. Really excellent PQ downconverts. I also find its ability to work w/ +RW and -RW, as well as its iLink/Firewire port for DV dubbing to be necessary features. Now, my 330 offers me the same performance/quality on my bedroom DVR...at half the price I paid for my GX-7.
I'd say that's very nice indeed.
Granted, I don't rely of on-the-fly editing out of commercials. I want top notch PQ, and if I love a series that much, I'll spring for a boxed copy. If not, it was a temp recording anyway. My DVR, my Slingbox and my PSP have replaced much of what I used to use my DVD recorder for when it comes to temp/time-shift viewing.
