With the current state of both technology and the video industry, several products have been derived from necessity of each other. Often, a combination of both has proven to bring a fresh new concept to the consumer market. The PVR or Personal Video Recorder market is one area, which in its current state and success is relative to this scenario that technology and demand often dictate the new standards to be adapted. Smaller, more efficient media players are gaining popularity and bring a wealth of benefits when compared to existing portable media players and technology. Today in MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the new Samsung DVD-R120 DVD Recorder; an all-in-one media solution which provides multi-format DVD recordings.
