Today, I have the opportunity to buy a Panasonic DMR E80H...the DVD recorder with the HDD.. The original list price is 699 at Best Buy. This week the price is 629.99, and I have 215 bucks in gift certificates, and a coupon for an additional ten percent off... With the service plan of 199, I figure that this will cost me about 600 total. Is it worth it, or should I wait for the prices to come down a bit? Really want to start converting some of my really old VHS to DVD... The 10 percent off certificate expires today so have to decide pretty quickly. I know this is a personal decision, based on finances, etc., but I want to make a good choice. I have not seen any affordable DVD recorders, other than the Panny and the Phillips, with an HDD. Any advice would be appreciated.
