The Toshiba VARDIA RD-A1 HD-DVD Burner

Posted by John Goulden Categories: Home Entertainment, Storage


Toshiba has unleashed the first home HD-DVD burner upon the Japanese market, dubbed the VARDIA RD-A1.  It’s rather portly at 33lbs and 18x16x6.25in in size, but there’s a lot of goodness shoveled into that silver enclosure.  There’s the aforementioned HD-DVD burning capability (both single and dual layer), a digital TV tuner, input/output ports out the wazoo, and 1TB of storage space which will hold a maximum of 92 hours of HD programming at the highest quality setting (24Mbps).

I mentioned the massive number of connections this thing has . . . see for yourself.
