Digital video recorders are great. They’re even better when they’re portable. If you want to want to watch some nifty DVD or TV video on your PSP but don’t want to bother with the whole conversion process, you’ll definitely want to consider the Easy Recorder 2 from Hagiwara Sys-Com. It takes in the usual video imputs and seamlessly outputs the content to a Memory Stick Duo or PRO Duo in MPEG-4 format.
This makes it immediately PSP-ready, though you’ll need to use a computer as an intermediary (via USB) if you plan on doing some viewing on your Apple iPod. There are three recording modes — Long (192kbps), Normal (384kbps), and High (768kbps) — providing up to 480 minutes of movies on a 1GB stick. Pricing has been set at $140.
