Worst sony I Ever Bought!
Don't get me wrong I Love the machines styling well built I Waited for the machine to become available and in my price range it started out at $900.00 when it went down in time to $300.00 I Jumped on it sadly it worked and recorded and played fine for a couple of months of course I Wasn't home much I Am sure if I Used it every day it would have quit in 2 or 3 weeks. Would not read disc any more any kind no way .I Had the machine to long to return. It is a shame I Still have it here .I Could cry looking at it .very expensive junk And I Love Sony that's all I Buy .This machine is the only Sony that ever let me down. Shame on you Sony .You had to know of this problem and should have issued a recall.

In it's day this was a good machine, but it's performance is based on an Optical Assembly that goes bad too soon and is very expensive and hard to install by an amateur. When these units work they are fantastic, but when they don't they are worthless. I have owned over Thirty or Forty of these units and the HX900 model and keeping them running is a headache. Expected cost to have serviced when it fails is about $300

SONY RDR-GX7 Greatest DVD Recorder ever made.
This unit is the best there was ever made. SONY makes the best. This unit was produced back in early 2000's, very advanced for the time. The only issue with it was the laser unit that does the reading/writing to the disc. For some unknown reason there must have been a slight defect in the lens or sensor affecting the reading of discs, this was an unfortunate thing to happen to such an advanced design. Once I realized how advanced the unit was I decided to do a little investigating, do have an electronic background. I purchased a unit that was not working reading discs. When I received it I took the hood off, checked that there was no loose or mechanically broken parts floating around. Once satisfied I thoroughly cleaned all dust, dust bunnies etc out and powered the unit up to see what would happen. It powered up and acted like it was ready to go, well, sorta. It would not read discs. I took the burner drive out, by the way is not an easy thing to do, SONY built this thing like a tank and you have to be very careful because you can damage the delicate cabling if not careful. Cleaned everything very carefully, put it back together, no go. So checked the burner for a part number for the laser unit itself. Done some research and found a supplier of the part, which by the way is not available as a new part. I found a source that had some slightly used guaranteed laser units. I purchased one and replaced the one in the burner. After getting it all put back together and making sure I didn't leave anything disconnected I fired it up, inserted a commercially produced disc, best to see if it will read or not, it did, viola! Then I went on to try recording and that worked also. So if you are mechanically/electronically capable of going into something this deep and want to experiment, ENJOY! This is my experiment with this unit and am happy to keep a few SONY RDR-GX7 DVD Recorders alive and still producing perfect DVD's. Sure wish SONY would make a modern unit as well as this one. I will keep mine forever, it is the only way I can put my VHS tapes on DVD, as a matter of fact the DVD's I have done so far look better that the VHS tapes they were copied from. Come on SONY let's get more of a great thing going! Read full review
