Excerpt: We're never ones to play the numbers game – how big, how many, how powerful – but nevertheless it's fair to say that this Panasonic has an impressive specification. When it comes to disc compatibility you can take your pick from DVD-+R/RW discs, DVD-RAM and dual layer DVD+R and DVD-R. There's an HDMI v1.3 output capable of sending 1080p video, as well as a 160GB hard disk drive for you to attempt to fill.
Pros: High spec, excellent digital TV pictures, good recording and playback quality, full-bodied sound
Cons: Some noise with DVD playback, interface slightly tiresome
