Toshiba unveils 1TB HDD/HD DVD recorder

Toshiba will next month ship the world's first consumer-oriented HD DVD player capable of writing to next-generation recordable media, the Japanese giant said today. The unit also features a whopping terabyte of hard disk storage - sufficient for 130 hours' HD content, the company said.

The RD-A1 goes on sale in Japan on 14 July. It's got digital terrestrial and satellite tuners, along with an analogue tuner for back-up and a wide array of digital and analogue video and audio inputs and outputs, including HDMI.

Now lets see if Sony makes a Blu Ray recorder. I truly doubt they will. We'll probably have to pay $3000 for something like that.

You call me a hater and I was giving them the benefit of the doubt. The Toshiba cost $3,467. So I was making it seem Blu Ray would be $3000. But thanks for being a moron like usual KingToy, I could always count on you.

Also thanks for the back up USMChardcharger. You're one of the few people here I do respect.

BluRay just isn't needed. HD-DVD is out NOW, and its amazing. I recently bought the Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD player, and the picture quality is astonishing.

The only thing better than this IMO, would be a first-run 35mm movie print-and not the one at your local googleplex-Im talking about the MASTER PRINT.

I watched 'The Cronicles of Riddick', and I couldn't believe how good it looked. PQ not only destroys DVD, but its an order of magnitude better than even HD broadcasts, because of the superior data transfer rates.

The machine is kinda noisy, and the load times suck-it boots up just like a computer-, but I'm SOLD on HD-DVD.

The only thing BluRay will give you is more space for commercials, or boring commentary tracks.

$3500.00 15 Kilos and damn is that thing big and ugly. But Toshibas designs are allways ugly. Looks like a rush job to me and just a way to $#!T on sony.

For that price might as well buy a Toshiba lab top with HDDVD drive.
