LG goes all-in-one with 3D Blu-ray PVRs

1TB and 500GB models can read and copy Blu-rays, digital TV

LG has brought out two new personal video recorders (PVRs) with 2D and 3D Blu-ray playback and recording, targeting buyers who want an all-in-one digital video player for their TVs.

The 1TB hard drive-toting BR629T and 500GB BR625T have twin internal high-definition digital TV tuners which can simultaneously record two channels, or watch one while recording another.

The players can also accept an external input from its composite A/V port, allowing a VHS player, camcorder or other legacy video device to be connected — and it's possible to record from this input, letting buyers digitise their existing video collections.

Blu-ray support for 2D and 3D disc playback, as well as various recordable formats and digital TV recording to disc, means the BR629T and BR625T can replace a Blu-ray player.

Both new LG PVRs are available now, with the 1TB model costing $849 and the 500GB model $649.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
