    That is one SEXXXY piece of equipment - even my girlfriend agrees.

    1 Terabyte hard drive capable of storing 130 hours of HD content
    HD-DVD burner - 230 mins of HD content per dual layer disc
    HDMI 1.3 capable of passing 1080p, Dolby-HD and DTS-HD
    Firewire and LAN

    All for the price of a high-end gaming PC.

    Japan release - July 14. Keep your eyes open for the US release.

    @rihgt682:
    The first gen Panasonic DVD recorders some years back was $3000, and this was NON-Progressive scan. Compared to that this Toshiba is cheap.

    @plutonash:
    If you look at the Hardware Trinity at the end of each issue of PC Gamer you will see that $1500 will get you a Mid-Level System at best. Their High-End Dream Systems (self-built) usually run from $3000 to $3500. These have the latest, greatest high-performance components available.

    Japanese only,
    I will save my money for a similar product.
    And more than likely it will feature blu-ray instead of HD.
    And it might come in the form of a ps3!
    But to each his own.

    1 TB is small if you're recording HD. I recorded the last season of CSI in HD from my Motorola cable box to my HTPC and it was over 150 Gigs for 24 episodes. I have 2 external hard drives 250 Gigs each full of recorded HD material. I can find a way to fill that 1 TB fast.

    ' ' 1 TB is small if you're recording HD. ' '

    agreed ,thats why blu-ray is way better then hdvd ,it can hold almost twice the data per layer. blu-ray is the real format of the high def. era.

    Well people fill up their Tivo too? Sure 1 TB isn't enough for a HD movie server but for a HD-DVD recorder, I think 1 TB is just fine. But that price is a through-back!

    Plus the thing is built like tank,

    1TB is 180hrs of HD. That's good enough for me.
