Summary: This DVD recorder has lasted over 7 years so far, and still works fine. I find Panasonic gear pretty dependable on the whole and this is no exception. The build quality is such that it feels like it will continue to last. The inbuilt on screen menus when burning discs are intuitive and simple to use, and as a player, it seems to even play scratched discs that won't work on my laptop or Sony PVR downstairs.
Excerpt: We bought one of these a few weeks ago. It will record a programme, let you view the programme (if you're lucky) and then the next time you try to use the same disk will tell you that it is unformatted even when you have only just watched a prog on it the night before. That's even more annoying when you haven't yet managed to watch what you recorded. It just keeps asking you to reformat the disk. Will be taking it back.
Panasonic Diga DMR-ES10: A fantastic Product but could be better
6 March 2011
Summary: I must say that when I first went hunting for a dvd recorder I had high hopes: The idea that I could record my favorite programs direct to dvd and then possibly transfer them to my PC for further viewing inspired me greatly, so off I went to the UK's online market place: eBay! because they can be feverishly expensive and I wasn't looking to have to remortgage my house to get one!
Pros: Good at reading damaged disks,wide variety of formats, easy to setup
First Beta-max, then VHS now DVD recorders... whatever next?

Excerpt: "...3.6kg When I first bought my Panasonic DVD recorder I got it at a knock down price, just under a hundred quid in fact, although the price these day is a little bit more than that being nearer the £150- £200 mark, (I do believe JXL are selling it for £150 at the moment, although do shop around as there are bargains to be had). But, even for the higher price you are still going to get a bargain as it will last for years and save you a lot of money ...
Pros: user friendly, multiple functions, great picture and sound quality plus much more
Cons: No hard drive built in so do stock up on recordable DVDs
Summary: With technology racing along with the speed of a three legged donkey with piles it won't be long before the humble 'VHS Video Cassette recorder' will become as obsolete as Beta-max, taking its place in the history books. So, with a quick and easy replacement needed, the boffins soon realised that the next stage to recording your favourite programmes, (apart from these really modern 'Hard drive' systems from sky and the like), is to use a DVD recorder.
Pros: User friendly, multi functions and good quality results
Summary: I have had this DVD recorder for over two and years and as always from Panasonic this product has been amazing. I picked it up as a refurbished item for only £60 expecting to replace it after a year with a hard drive version but since the time I turned it on I just wanted to keep it for as long as possible.
Summary: The 'DMR-ES10' is a DVD recorder made by Panasonic. As it's now a few years old, you can pick-up this model for an average price of around £40 on ebay. This represents good value for money considering the machine when new cost just under £200. The DMR-ES10 supports DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM formats - it doesn't however work with DVD+RW discs.
Summary: ...The Brand... As anyone who knows anything about audio visual products would know, Panasonic are one of the best in the business and they have been hugely prolific over the past ten years winning awards for their televisions, dvd players and home cinema speaker kits. I have a fantastic Panasonic CRT Television which was given five stars by many of the reviews I have read. ...Panasonic DMR ES10...
