  • Excerpt: Had tried a Sony that I got for Christmas last year, and it was a Pain in the Neck compared to this Panasonic. Instructons are somewhat scattered about the manual so its not always straight forward as to what you need to do. BUT..... if you've played around with some VHS recorders, it's not too much different. Love the machine, and I don't have to pay for a monthly fee Like Tivo.....  just need to watch it later when I record!   So what's the Problem?? ...

My best electronics buy in a decade...

  • Excerpt: I love this Panasonic.  Having a large library of vhs tapes collected over several years proves to be a problem is the new technology does not produce campatible equipment.  So the durability of your older players becomes important.  I appreciate the fact that Panasonic have not failed me.  Ever.  And I have been buying their electronics for decades.

  • Excerpt: This is not a bad machine it does it's job fine.  It burns DVD and VHS with ease that is saying A LOT because I know very little on how to program these things.  But for the money I was expecting better.  The remote does not have a mute button on it, (yes that is a little thing until you need to turn it down quickly). Other remotes do not work well with this machine. We had to buy a new one (which is $35) because of a dog.

Versatile and relatively easy to use recorder combo unit

  • Excerpt: I had a Sony combo recorder unit before this and the Panasonic much simpler, from the remote to the user manual.  It still has all the functionality without the confusion.  Very simple to transfer VHS to DVD.  Many different recording modes, even including a flexible mode, so that you can record 1 hour 49 minutes and 23 seconds fit so that all the DVD space is used and you maximize digital quality.
