Excerpt: Are you addicted to TV? If so, you could well find the Panasonic DMR-EX88's recording ability a godsend: use its lowest-quality EP mode to store your TV programmes on its 400GB hard disk, and you can record up to 712 hours – nearly 30 days – of telly! More likely, of course, is that you'll want the best possible quality for your recordings: using the optimum XP mode, the Panasonic's recording duration drops to 89 hours, which is still enough, by anyone's standards.
Pros: Stupendous hard-disk space means hours of excellent recordings, complete spec, very easy to use, terrific picture and sound quality
Cons: Only that Panasonic', s cheaper DMR-EX78 is very nearly as good
