It might not have a catchy name, but it'll serve your AV needs well

Excerpt: Although quite old now, when first released, the Panasonic DMR-EX75 was a top of the range DVD recorder. Obviously, the market has moved on now, but, despite one or two minor annoyances, this machine still stands up pretty well offering a well featured machine that will be suitable for most people's...
Summary: The DVD drive failed when the machine was out of warranty. We decided to buy an alternative, newer Panasonic rather than repair the DVD drive but we had 2 different Panasonic models that suffered from the same problem when programming recordings (losing settings) so we went back to our DMR-EX75 and...
Summary: I bought my Panasonic DMR-EX75 £295 in December 2006, 18 months later, in June 2008, it had its first U80 breakdown. When the screen display U80 fault, this mean that the machine is dead and need a new £250 motherboard to work again. The cost to fix it has been cover by the guarantee.
Pros: Easy to use, good quality recording
Cons: Panasonic’s motherboard will not last more then 18 months
Summary: Excellent- user friendly and easy to use.
I have had another Hard disc recorder without a Digital tuner for quite some time and this is soo much better- no need to connect an external tuner and it means I don't miss programs I set up for timer recording.
Summary: Firstly, highly recommend theelectricdiscounter.com
Prompt, efficient and courteous.
(Update)Happy with the product in most respects, but have an unresolved issue in that it won't play 50% or more of the DVD's we hire (Other DVD players we have in the house play them just fine!).
Pros: Very good recording/play back options on the HDD- can play and record at the same time.
Summary: I've now owned the Panasonic DMR-EX75 for a month and I'm really pleased with my purchase. I'm glad I bought the Panasonic DVD recorder rather than a Sony, which is not as quick to start recording. I think the recording quality is excellent especially in XP and SP mode, even LP mode is not bad.
Pros: 160GB hard disc, starts recording in 1 sec, picture quality of recordings is excellent
Summary: I own a E100H, which I suppose is this machine's little brother, one of the first. I was extremely impressed with the machine after I bought it about 4 years ago, and it still serves me well. If anyone is thinking about buying this new machine then I would say 200% YES - get it.
Summary: This is a nice recorder which works well and gives great picture quality on standard play. It is simple to operate and very versatile, but personally I don't think it looks good. That said, it's highly reccomended.
Summary: Excellent HDD DVD recorder, but unfortunately I was misguided into thinking it was a high-definition player, also because of the HDMI at the back, but this was not the case. It will upscale normal DVDs, but will not play high-definition DVDs :-( So if that's what you're looking for then this is...
Pros: The menu's ease of control, excellent playback features and HDMI outputs a great picture.
