Summary: I have bought this to replace my much loved 6 year old Sony DVD hd recorder that just stopped working. I was heartbroken so bought another one within 2 days as I use it as a freeview box also. I find this one lacking compared to Sony as its slow to turn on and it doesn't play all DVDs. Also I found that signal isn't as good as before, but that might not be the recorders fault. My daughter set it up and she says its fairly easy. That's the only draw backs I found so far.
Summary: Panasonic Digital DVD Recorder with 160Gb HDD and Freeview+. bought this recently in the pre Christmas sales. Set up was relatively straight forward and the programming of it is very simple. It has many more features than we will ever use, so you have to be selective with the instruction manual. Playback has been fine. Like all consumer electronics the key will be its reliability.
Summary: If you're having a problem with an HD recorder I sympathize as this was the FIFTH one I bought [2 from Curries 3 Argos]. Others had HD faults like sound drop out etc. This one is far superior [I'm cautious as I've only had it 3 weeks. So we'll see.] I've had a Panasonic DVD recorder in the past which gave reasonable service hence optimism. This HDR Is also a DVD player [MORE TO GO WRONG??] but we'll see.
Summary: Very good quality with excellent definition, a little slow on start up but once initialised a good performer. Has a large number of options for those who need them thus making it a little complicated for those wanting a simple solution. However, overall a very nice machine and good value for the price and highly recommended.
Excerpt: Tiene una capacidad de imagen de 1800 pixeles y 2 Gigas, un vídeo que tiene una amplia definición, es un vídeo donde puedes ver tanto Dvd, piratas, como Dvd, normales. También puedes grabar dando al rec, que viene en el botón rojo que tiene en la pantalla principal. Es un vídeo que además no tiene mucho peso de color negro, donde puedes meter dvds no sólo originales, como pasa en otro tipo de aparatos, sino también piratas, lo que te facilita que no tengas que ir siempre...
Pros: Buena imágen, buena pixelación, con mando a distancia, fácil de manejar
Cons: No tiene ninguna, tiene un precio asequible, si tienes nómina fija y te lo dejan a plazos
