Summary: Great product! I just got one of these a little over ~1 month ago to replace my daily used for ~10 years without issue DMR-E80H 80gb HD Panny HDD/DVD recorder. The DVD drive finally died in it. This is a good fit because it has the exact same menus, updated with even more functions. NO built in NTSC/ATSC tuner but I rarely used the one my last unit had. All the inputs you could possibly need!
Summary: Blows my Sony RDR-HX900 out of the water. Because it can do so many things that my Sony can't or won't do. I highly recommend this unit,i bought mine from 220 Electronics out of Illinois. This baby is awesome for editing once you get it down. What i do to edit is: Step 1 : Press Function Menu on Remote Step 2 : Playback/Video/Ok Step 3 : Press Option on Remote Step 4 : Highlite Edit/Ok Step 5 : Here is where you can enter the Title Name-very easy to move around and name.
Summary: I have been looking for a machine like this for years. In January 2007, I bought a Panasonic DMR-ES15S DVD-RAM Recorder for $169.99. It has many very good features. Then in November 2007 I bought a Panasonic DMR-EZ27K DVD RAM Recorder for $275.59 so that I could copy DVDs. Both record on DVD-RAM of course, so that commercials can be removed from my recorded from TV programs.
Knew what I was getting and it has not disappointed - just wish they made a terabyte version.

Summary: This is a recorder made for India - so there are a few tweaks to use it here effectively. That said - the vendor outlined the procedure and it works flawlessly and way more user friendly than the larger Magnavox alternative.
A fantastic DMR (if your willing to make a couple of trade-offs)

Summary: My intent was to purchase this DVR from Amazon initially but frankly found a lower price from another vendor. This is not usually the case but this time it was. First and foremost, I understand most consumers in North America are not going to be interested in any component that doesn't carry a North American warranty. I decided to purchase this unit w/o a warranty based on the Panasonic name and the fact that I'm a techie.
Very Good DVD Recorder w/Hard Drive. PAL/NTSC compatible

Summary: I must say that this is a very nice recorder. I had in the past a Panasonic EH-55 which lasted about a year. I took the EH-55 in for repair and the shop stated it needed a HDD cable which would not be available for 6 months and the unit was discontinued. Panasonic refunded my money so I was satisfied with the result. I was disappointed because I knew of a couple of other people that had the EH-55 and to this day those are still functioning. Now back to the EH-69.
Summary: I must say this recorder is excellent.. My favorite brand in recorders are Panasonic. Love the FR function. I have tried another brands and the quality is not as good as Panasonic. When I saw this model with HDD I was so excited and decided to buy it. You can change from PAL to NTSC with a simple button.
