OK, I'm finally going to replace my fried Panasonic DVD-R/DVD-RAM recorder, which was fried by lightning back on March 31. Where's the best deal from a reputable merchant? So far, Profeel has it for $618. Can I do better short of an open-box buy at Sears? (Haven't actually seen any of those, but I've heard about them.) Thanks. By the way, for anybody considering this unit, let me say I was totally happy with it. I had it for a few weeks before my house got zapped, and I made many, many fine recordings of classic movies from my DirecTivo. Also copied a few VHS tapes, laserdiscs and MiniDV tapes. Thumbs up all around, especially since the prices on media and DVD recorders are falling. I know the E30 is due soon, but I want another E20 now.
