good: Pioneer, Panasonic

maybe: Toshiba, Sony, JVC

bad: noname brands

At $300 you're entering the game for one with a hard drive, which is something that really makes DVD recorders great to use. Certainly some parts of the home video you shot aren't what you want to keep. With a hard drive you can edit out those shots of your feet and ceiling as well as organize the good parts into different titles before burning to disc. Don't compromise on this. Pretty much any DVD recorder with a hard drive is a reasonable-quality machine.
If you think you've got a headache now, and you decide to buy a Panasonic, wait till you try and decipher one of their manuals! (Fine recorders otherwise, though.)
