Great Recording quality

surf r., Newegg
26 March 2010
  • Summary: I highly recommend this unit if you wish to record DVD's. If I had realized how good it was, I would have purchased months ago.
  • Pros: 1) Outstanding recording quality. 2) Flexible record option allows you to set your own user defined disc record length and video quality. 3) Signal pass through on S-Video/audio when unit it off. Presumably on the other feeds as well, but I haven't tested. 4) Strong, high quality performance with...
  • Cons: 1) No TV Tuner. 2) Does not play PAL dvd's 3) somewhat technical interface that could give some people difficulty 4) a little slow at times. None of these are a big deal, but might be useful info for somebody.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Very good manual and website help if you run into trouble.
  • Pros: Excellent product! Upconversion for older DVD's and JPEG's make then look stunning. Recording quality is also excellent, especially in 2 hour or less recordings. HDMI cable highly recommended-it makes a big difference. If you can program a VCR, this will be very similar. Setup is also quick and p...
  • Cons: Only complaint so far is very slow to power on. Other than that works great.

Stunning color

GORDON P., Newegg
23 June 2008
  • Summary: I highly recommend this unit.
  • Pros: This is an excellent recorder. It puts out stunning color. It is my first DVDR; I almost bought a competing unit for $50 less but noticed that it did not record a full picture in wide screen; plus, some reviewers reported so much trouble with its copy-block that it rendered the unit useless. Why ...
  • Cons: It takes a minute or two for the unit to come up ready to record. It has a fast wake-up mode that I turned off because others reported problems with it. Have a little patience and you will be rewarded.

EXCELLENT QUALITY RECORDER

Maxine D., Newegg
6 June 2008
  • Summary: Unplugged the Sylvania unit and plugged the Panasonic in the same way and we have a Pioneer TV so the ability for two Panasonics to communicate, did not happen however, did not find that to be any kind of a problem.
  • Pros: Purchased this Panasonic DMR-EA18K DVD unit online after an extensive amount of research to find a unit that just records and plays DVD's (also plays CD's). Have already tackled the conversion of VHS tapes to DVD's and wore out a VHS/DVD Sylvania player/recorder after 4 years. Now we will settle ...
  • Cons: The manual is very involved and not being a technical person (72 yr old female), decided to let my "instincts" take over. Had to purchase an HDMI splitter as the our Pioneer TV only had one HDMI connection and needed two since we have Directv Satellite.
