Excerpt: I am surprised to see the above mentioned product and so many places around £400.00 and when I went to John Lewis its £549.00 I just can't anderstand a price matching store they don't consider the price matching in despite of my reports and evidence over 10 different companies priceses as low as £409.00 , why can't I find a shop that can't be accepted as price macthing by john lewis, many thanks, TIDANIAN
Excerpt: An excellent well made piece of kit. The VHS player although adequate is not as good as the Sony one that I replaced. It is a shame that it will not copy, copy protected tapes but did not expect it to be able to. I would like to see a facility that monitors the signal being copied and stop the copying when the signal ceases. The manual is very complicated and the machine seems to have a vast quantity of facilities that I will never use.
Excerpt: I bought this item just over a month a go as an anniversary present for my parents. After they had unwrapped it at a family gathering I plugged it all in etc but got a message of HDDERR and the DVD just opened. Thats the sum total of my experience!!! Totally embarassing. I researched this very carefully but had not heard of such problems but when I went surfing again, a couple of similar things cropped up with reference to the Samsung HDD disk being temperamental.
Excerpt: After many hours of frustration I finally managed to get my Loewe Planus TV, Panasonic satellite receiver and this Panasonic DMR-EX95 DVD/VHS/HD recorder to work together. The wiring-up diagram in the manual didnt work and was different from that suggested by the Panasonic satellite receivers manual! I also have the Panasonic DMR75V DVD/VHS recorder so am familiar with many of the functions, but I still found the plethora of features daunting.
Excerpt: Introduction ========= Having had many DVD players in the past, many with recording functions, I have had lots of experience in what makes a good DVD player/recorder. However something I have never owned is a DVD recorder with an added VHS player. As we are truly well into the DVD era now I feel it is long overdue that I convert my massive video collection that I have had since I was a child to DVD disk.
Pros: Easy to use,Plays Everything ! ,Loads of memory to fill !
Cons: Kind of chunky compared to someother products
Excerpt: A good product bundling various recording formats together thus reducing the amount of clutter under the telly (and number of remotes needed). I've been using mine for a month and have found my way around the menu system although the mother-in-law is still baffled! Disapointed it doesn't have a dual-channel digital receiver. We don't have a digital TV so once we start recording we can't view any digital channel other than the one being recorded.
Pros: Hassle-free recording. Different formats bundled into one box. Nothing else like it on the market (yet).
Cons: Single-channel digital receiver. Poor compatibility reading folders on SD cards.
