The new Cuckoo CRP-HW1087F has an English voice guide. The minimum recommended amount to cook is 2 cups. I am not sure how the performance is for cooking only 1 cup of rice.
The GABA rice feature is especially nice because you can set it to be finished up to 13 hours (according to the manual but I don't see a reason you can't set it for up to 23 hours). This will include some pre germination time as well as germination time and cooking time. I am not sure how long germination time is in this mode. You can also choose 3 hours which will heat and maintain warm water for germination for 3 and then start cooking.
My understanding is that the Cuckoo products use greater pressure which is particularly good for brown rice. I do not have any personal experience comparing them.
The Cuckoo units have the multi cook feature which allows you to use the unit as an electric pressure cooker. They are intended to cook more than just rice and grains.
Check out the following video for the English speaking feature. There is also a "What's in the box" video and I will add a brown rice video now
