Philips DVDR985

The Good FireWire and component-video inputs; progressive-scan output; thumbnail menu creation; records motion well.

The Bad Unfriendly remote; posterization artifacts.

The Bottom Line Though a bit pricey, the DVDR985 is an attractive choice, thanks to its strong features and component-video input.
