This unit was a gift and I tried to set ...

Lisa, Amazon
30 November 2014
  • Summary: This unit was a gift and I tried to set it up when I first received it but had trouble even figuring out how to set the clock. Kept getting the same error message. I set it aside and over a year later went back to it and could not get it to power up.

Very reliable and very happy with this beauty

Raven, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this since 2007 and never had one problem. The laser still runs, I've copied things and recorded things, I've used it as a default player since then. It's just as reliable now as it was when I took it out of the box. Very reliable and very happy with this beauty.

Panasonic DVD/VCR combo units

dustydog "PZim", Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: No one in his right mind would pay over $100 for a used Panasonic recorder based on the horror stories in the forums. I myself have had 5 Panasonic DMR Combo recorders in the last year.( 1 new and 1 refurb DMR-EZ48, 1 new and 1 used DMR-ES46V, and 1 DMR-ES40V).

If you're converting VHS to DVD, you better work fast

Curtis G, Amazon
6 June 2010
  • Summary: ...because the lifespan of this unit is amazingly short. Plays DVDs and VHS tapes fine and recording (and copying) is fairly easy. Still, it was less than a year before I got an error code on the front panel.

  • Summary: This unit worked well but died after only 7 months of use. Avoid Panasonic equipment. It's a waste of money.

Just ok till failed...

Donn Everhard, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: Paid big bucks for this thinking I'd get a quality machine. In the 1st place the manual is NINETY SIX PAGES LONG!!!!! Worked ok transferring from VHS to dvd and recording on DVD but there is a real learning curve. Should be simpler than it is.

Will play about 18 DVDs before breaking

tk "tk", Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: You can Google any of these Panasonic DVD players and it appears they will all do the same as mine did with this model. Work at most 18 months and then give you a NoRead signal which you can't fix. I only played about 18 DVDs on this!

Panasonic does it again.

Robert E. Darling, Amazon
23 October 2009
  • Summary: I have been using this madchine for several years now and I haven't had a minutes trouble. It gives an excellent recording on DVD or VHS. Transfer from VHS to DVD is fast and simple for non-protected media. I had hoped to record all of my VHS tapes to DVD and that just isn't going to happen.

Good quality workhorse

baystater, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: I've had this machine for at least a couple years and it has performed extremely well and it is used every day. I would advise that it does seem to prefer Sony DVD's however, I had some problems with Memorex (they would stop mid-recording) which likely has more to do with the DVD's themselves.

Worked alright until it died

Brian R., Amazon
9 May 2009
  • Summary: I had it for a little over a year and the DVD drive died. We had bought this to copy our old VHS to DVDs and to use as our main DVD player. Our average usage was between once and twice a week. Tuner didn't work that well (we didn't bother using it).
