Sony's VHS to DVD machine
By Darryl Mocek on Aug 05, 2005
Sony sells the Sony DVDirect VRD-VC20 machine, which transfers your VHS and camcorder tapes to DVD. A machine like this has been out for a while, but this is a new version of the box. The big advantage is that you don't have to deal with your PC to transfer videos from VHS to DVD, the machine does everything for you. You can hook your VCR directly up to the machine, or if you have a camcorder, you can hook the camcorder up to the DVDirect device and transfer directly from your camcorder to DVD. You can also hook up your computer if you want to do video editing before you burn the DVD. All this for under $300.
