Shopping this past weekend, I came across 3 DVD recorders — all under $500:

- Phillips for $499;

- Panasonic for $449;

- an “off brand” for $399.

That leads me to make two predictions:

1st, by Christmas 2003, DVD recorders will be $250-300. Its more than 90 days from now, and the upper range of that target is totally do-able.

2nd prediction: Christmas 2004, $150-250. At that price, this becomes a very popular home and consumer device; Especially if we see name brands ike Panasonic under $250.

Now think about the possibilities of combining a DVR/TiVo device with a DVD recorder . . .

    At that point Hollywood becomes as shrill as the recording industry! I’d love to see all of this move to the point where artists deal much more directly with their audiences.

    Beth,
    That’s what I was going to say! More law suits…

  3. Panasonic DVD-R: $199

    I finally broke down and bought a DVD Recorder. I have so much stuff on my TiVo that I was unwilling to delete (including appearances) that I had to do something. I am nearly out of space on the hard drive.
