Whenever I see a DVD recorder will use DVD-RAM I can't help but wonder if it was sourced by Panasonic, or at least based on Panasonic technology (Toshiba). This Pioneer DVR does that and even looks suspiciously similar to the EH55, which has a 160 GB HDD in its European version. Reading reviews also makes it sound like it uses the same basic procedures as the Panasonic DVR. Does anyone know if this Pioneer is actually a Panasonic EH55 clone? If that is the case it appears to be still available and may be a decent option for those who missed out on the EH55s.
