  • Summary: I have owned a Pioneer DVD recorder for 6 years and it worked brilliantly. They I decided to join the HD world since freeview became HD. I thought I should get the BR version of this recoder and I did. The machine is fairly complicated and not intuitive to operate.
  • Pros: EPG recording
  • Cons: very slow machine

  • Summary: I'm 79 and unable to read diminished type in pastel colours on most web-sites. Im also partly deaf and manage to watch TV by being only about 18 inches from the screen. So far, I've managed to make one recording in the BW889 . Now how do I burn it? Some directions please?
  • Pros: It promises heaps
  • Cons: I don't understand it

Very pleased

  • Summary: I finally sold my Sky HD box and opted for this. I was annoyed that in order to tape onto my Sky box I had to have a subscription hence the reason for my purchase of the DMR-BW880. I have no regrets as I got this at a very discounted price from Amazon (I was lucky to spot a brief price drop).

Excellent image quality - best recorder ever owned.

  • Summary: Excellent picture quality (freeview HD) looks like the original source and freeview SD looks good upscalled. Very good at upscalling DVDs and Bluray is amazing sharp images. HD space is sufficient (500GB) as the pure digital mode is very efficient.

Don't beleive what you read on the tin

  • Summary: When I received the Blu-ray recorder and set it up, I quickly found that some of the functionality I had read about did not function as I was lead to beleive from the right ups and advertising for the product. There are cheaper on the market that do a better job.

  • Summary: It is reasonably simple and quick to use and is still working well. Of special note is the semi-automatic update of all digital stations (both television and wireless).

Nice, but could be better

  • Summary: I bought this to use with two G20 displays that I have. It was quick and easy to set up on the main TV and with a little fiddling around (enabling the media server options) I got it working over the network on the second TV.

Shame about the DVD region coding

bibliophile, Amazon
22 July 2010
  • Summary: It does everything as advertised, very nicely - the HDtv pictures on the Viera are crisp and clean - although, like other users, I find the guide displays far too little information and the advert is an annoying waste of space.

No good if you don't have HD

Suzanne, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this Blue Ray HD recorder as it had built in HD, we set it up on Friday & couldn't get any of the HD channels to work. We phoned Panasonic, and they asked where we lived, and told us we wouldn't get HD tv until 2012.
