LG LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder

Via Gadget Madness:

The LG Digial Media Recorder is one pretty slick device, but its basically a Media Center wanabee. It sports a 160GB hard drive, an impressive DVD burner (with support for a host of different formats), and 802.11 a/b/g. Pretty sweet eh? Well it is, except for the fact that you have to pay for the Microsoft Programming Guide ($10 monthly, $100 yearly, or $250 for lifetime). A normal Media Center doesn't require for this payment. This is of course, on top of the $600 price tag for the device. I think I will pass on this one, mainly because of the price.

I just bought a Humax Tivo Recorder (Includeds Tivo, DVD drive and burner) for only $39.99 after rebate (Though I do have to pay the Tivo monthly or lifetime fee), so I'll tell you what I think of it when it arrives.
