My Panasonic DVD-RAM unit went dark
and died yesterday. Suiting my needs for
recording programs, and then removing

that Panasonic and its partners that
spearhead the DVD-RAM approach have
apparently abandoned the business. One
sees ads for "refurbished" units, which
can be OK, but I'd rather get something
Anyone have any suggestions for a stand
alone unit that might make a good
replacement? I suspect many units that
record DVD +/- RW would suffice. But
the units take a beating when used in the
way I described, and some will probably
last longer than others.
A unit with a hard drive is an option too,
but not one that has a monthly fee.
