Pioneer on September 14 announced the introduction of a series of new digital tuner-supported DVD recorders for the Japanese market. These new DVD recorders with built-in hard disk drives (HDDs) are slated to launch in Japan during mid-October to November, according to the company.
The DVR-RT700D and DVR-DT75 DVD recorders are both equip with a built-in 250GB HDD while the DVD-RT900D and DVR-DT95 are equipped with a built-in 400GB HDD. The company also offers an add-on HDD, the HDD-S400, with a memory capacity of 250GB.
