Excerpt: I have had this machine for a few days now and have so far found it to be very good. I purchased this unit to replace a now aging LG dvd recorder which had refused to play or record on any discs apart from RW discs(very odd). Anyway I decided to get a new recorder and this time thought I may as well get one with a hard disc as well.
Excerpt: I BOUGHT THE UNIT ON THE FEEDBACK WHICH WAS LEFT AT AMAZON AND I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED AT ALL. IVE ALWAYS BOUGHT PANASONIC FOR THE QUALITY IT GIVES. THE DMR 78EB-K IS BRILLIANT AT ALL THE FUNCTIONS. HARD DRIVE IS ALMOST SILENT ,NOT LIKE OTHERS I COULD NAME. ONE TOUCH SERIES LINK IS EASY TO USE. PICTURE QUALITY GREAT. LOADS OF RECORDING SPACE ON THE HARD DRIVE. WELL DONE AMAZON FOR A GREAT PRICE AND FREE DELIVERY.
Excerpt: Bought this as a replacement for a sony dvd recorder, which has only lasted for 2years. Hope this recorder lasts a lot longer than the sony. Nice looking dvd recorder,not quite the ease of use of previous player, though not difficult to use. Would critise the remote control, as there is no open and close button for dvd drawer, you have to do this manually,other than this no other critisisms.
Excerpt: The picture is superb on playback this would be fine if it could record the Freeview ITV channels, the tuner displays blocky images and freezes constantly. I have no trouble with BBC Freeview channels, I thought it might be an aerial problem (unlikely as both my Pioneer DVD/HDD and Sony DVD/HDD record ITV Freeview with no problems) but I still had my aerial checked which was fine. My only problem is which wheelie bin to throw it into.
Excerpt: Im impressed with this recorder, it can do a lot more than i need, only criticism is the manual could be more user friendly, e.g. jumping from one page to another on the same subject. Saying that, it is easy to use, once you know!
Excerpt: I ordered this item and was promised delivery within 48 hours on the 30th of December 2008. As promised the item got here on that date at 9.15 prompt in the morning and it was well packaged and i set it up later that night. It does exactly what it says on the tin and it does a very good job as well-so far it has only missed one recording schedule I had made but I think that one was my fault!!!
Excerpt: Panasonic may not be the cheapest DVD recorder, but I feel that it is worth the little extra that it may cost as it has extra functions and a very good tuner in it. We get a better picture when recorded and played back than we do on our TV. Highly recomended.
