"Sony Daily Edition YES, IREX DR800SG NO!"4.0 starson by 48thstreetboy
Pros: Extremely good build quality, ease of use, flawless setup, flawless linking to PC. Also, the online features work perfectly, all I had to do was take it out of the box, turn it on, and off to the races
Cons: Glare & Contrast a bit of an issue, but nowhere as bad as I thought. Very readable in all light
Summary: I purchased this and the IREX DR-800-SG at the same time, because I was testing these out for professional use. I discussed the SONY above, and again to note, superb build quality, just overall well made and designed. The online store is also excellent. The IREX DR-800-SG was also an attractive alternative, because of the wider screen. I opened that one up, and it was DOA (that means dead on arrival) Also, the build quality was nothing near the Sony. Advice? go with the Sony. You have to believe that a company like Sony does it's homework, and if the Japanese adopt it, so will we. This device is in typical Sony fashion, Art in motion. Go for it.
