PVR - Personal Video Recording Devices

I had heard of this technology a short while back but finally saw it on television being sold at around $300.00. Are there any other brand name makers of this type of device?

Throw in 4 XLR or balanced 1/4" jacks, a small mixer, firewire in, and a much bigger HDD... Yeah, that would be sweeeeeet!

unfortunately, most of these devices record only mpeg4 , very compressed.
iti is ok to view a movie on a 4 inches screen, but does not fit the need to record clean video.
There are some devices like this one recording into mpeg2 in SD, but the price is really more professional.

My friend have a similar device for around $400. I wish he would've listened and bought a Firestore. Video is very compressed. We played with it for a little bit and it didn't look like you have a lot of control over the recorded video. Also I didn't figure why but it would skip a lot maybe because of vibration or fast movement of the subject or maybe because it's cpu couldn't handle the job. I don't think it had a firewire either. On the other hand it's a nice device which also doubles as a mp3 player and it's cheaper then the Firestore.
Not for professional use though.
