Summary: "U99" Error Problem.Piece of junk, one can not do anything with this machine in presence of that error code.The Machine has not been even used for any rcording-brand new and I was using Panasonic Brand DVD-Ram.
Summary: Although I have called Panasonic and gotten assistance, after 4 weeks I am still unable to get the on-screen TV Guide to work. I am technology-saavy, and even had a friend help me with the unit. No luck. Programming recording without the TV Guide is fine, but that defeats the purpose of buying this machine.
Summary: In the year that I have had this model I have had to talk to Customer Support eight times. Not only did I have to call them to help me with a problem, I frequently had to wait a long time (over 45 minutes) to get someone on the phone. Once I was talking to someone I either had a really bad experience or a so-so experince. For the amount of technical trouble I have had with this machine, I would never buy another Panasonic product again.
Summary: For the price and the not so technology enabled person, this is a great peice of equipment. It was easy to set up and use. The only thing that may be a problem is the sd slot. I used this to see a slide show of my pics from my digital camera. The picture quality was not the best, but then this was only to review and edit my pics. Putting them on a disc, the picture quality is great. I am very happy with this product.
Summary: Very happy that I got to archive my old home VHS to DVD with great results. Great features: This is an excellent entry-level DVD-recorder. The TV Guide feature is the reason to past over Panasonic cheaper brother the E55s which just have the VCR-plus feature. TV Guide is a simpler and free version to TiVo. It has an on-screen menu of the channels including title, time, info and the option to record.
Summary: Um meine Videokasetten zu dikitalisieren habe ich diesen DVD Recoder erworben. Aufnahmen können aber nur über die Schnittstellen, S-Video, Videocomposit und DV, an Frondseite gemacht werden. Die Aufnahmen sind in einem Format, welches nur von diesem Recorder abgespielt werden kann. Es ist mir bis heute nicht gelungen, eine Software zum konvertieren dieses Dateiformates (***.vro) zu bekommen.
