I went to BB today with my little 10% off coupons I got in the mail expecting to come home with a DVD recorder and the SW trilogy DVD set. I came home with the trilogy and threw away the other little 10% off coupon. The pickins seemed very slim! BB only had 5 on the shelf. 4 were butt-ugly and one was too much. Then I went to Target and was interested in the Cyberhome CH-1500 DVD recorder, but they were out of stock. Price was right at just $199. No wonder they were all gone! It was at BB I realized I had no idea what was what and I had to do some research on what models are more desirable, and what to stay away from. So of course, I thought hometheaterforum! SO fellas...199 to 250...what am I gonna get? I will be heading off to Brandsmart which I remember had a great selection from Apex to Pioneer and everything in between.
