Just received the Toshiba XS34 last night. Only had about an hour to play, but I was able to play a prerecorded DVD, record/play to/from the HDD, and DVD-RAM. Build and picture quality look good. I currently have it hooked to a 20” Sony WEGA in our bedroom. I’ve never had a DVD Recorder or TIVO type unit, and who knows this gushing might turn to fits of frustration in a month or so, but this is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. I think we will use it a lot and can’t wait to start dubbing some of my DV tapes to DVD using the 1394 input.
