Very expensive but it works

R. M. Pratt, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Very expensive but it does work. I haven't noticed any image improvement over the 4 year old predecessor but that be the performance of the Panasonic TX-L37V10 connected to it. Stopping serial recording is still a mystery but I am sure that it can be done.

Think twice if you intend to copy to DVD to play on other equipment

J. R. Warman, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: If you intend to copy to DVD to play on other players, think twice. It will only record to DVD in 4:3 aspect, even if your original is 16:9 When played on the BS850EB, no problem.

A Missed Opportunity

Frank Gerschwiler, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: I have a few DVD HDD recorders Pioneer 5100, Sony 710 Sony 770 Toshiba XS30 XV48 etc and so any new recorder had to be a major technology step forward. The Panasonic 750 (same as 850 but 250GB HDD instead of 500GB) seemed ideal to go with my LG 1080p High Def TV.

BS850 Review

Jason P. Ward "HD Junkie", Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Picture quality is great. But... All function changes are slow leading to a lot of black screen during changes. Menus are not intuitive, you CANNOT rewind live TV (no buffer), you cannot set a reminder for a program only record.

OK but possible inherent fault

P. Eaves, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Generally I like this unit. When it displays stuff on the screen, it looks really good - and bear in mind that is what you will spend the majority of your time doing. Sadly, the software interface feels like it was programmed in the way the physical unit has probably been built - made up of...

DMR-BS850. Some downsides

G. L. Craig, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: This is my third Panasonic recorder and undoubtedly another big step forward, but I've found a couple of drawbacks. The first is maybe not Panasonic's fault. Freesat HD gives the broadcasters the option not to allow writing of Bluray discs from HD programmes and they are certainly making plenty of...

viel schnick schnack, Handhabung -2 oder sogar -3 Sterne

selcos, Amazon

Da kann man sich nur wundern...

Ralf, Amazon
15 June 2010
  • Summary: ...,dass ein Gerät, das als eierlegende Wollmichsau in den höchsten Tönen gelobt wird und einer der teuersten Receiver auf dem Markt ist, sich als lahme Schecke mit durchschnittlichem Bild entpuppt. Vorteile: 3 Geräte in Einem.

Ein Vergleich mit dem Vorgängermodell (Vorteile und Nachteile)

P. Lurker, Amazon
23 May 2010
  • Summary: Bislang habe ich das Vorgängermodell "DMR EX 81 S EG S" benutzt, das noch kein Blu-Ray-Laufwerk enthält, sondern nur ein DVD-Laufwerk und mit dem man nur das bisher übliche SD-Satelliten-Fernsehen ansehen und aufzeichnen kann.
