Pros: Pros? Glad the junk broke, got me a streaming DVD, I can watch Netflix, Youtube etc.
Cons: Broke the first time I tried to convert. It was past one year warranty, Panasonic couldn't care less, despite letters, multiple calls. Probably gave me a fictitious email address to send one complaint to. They're SO DUMB, if they had even given me a %
Summary: This newest recorder that I just purchased does so much more than recording. It's worth the money I paid for it. It's works in conjunction with the panasonic lcd or plasma tv's as far as using the sd card to view pictures, etc. Panasonic has always made excellent electronic equipment.
Summary: Great reconditioned unit for the money. Quick delivery and notifications by Overstock. My 10 year old son with Down Syndrome work the unit with no problems at all. The only drawback is that it's real slow to power-up to receive the HDMI signal. Looking to buy another to replace our 2 older DVD/VHS machines.
Summary: I was recording VHS to DVD within 5 minutes. I haven't got into the more difficult features yet. The only downfall is the delay between the remote and the unit. It lags up to 5 second once the buttons are depressed. It's still a good unit.
Summary: Purchased this DVR based on its reputation on the Internet and have not been disappointed. The price from Overstock was excellent. This machine does have a few small quirks (pressing the "up channel" key rapidly caused it to get confused and sometimes it jumps back to the original channel) but overalls works well. I recommend the use of DVD-RAM discs, as it enables some extra features over using DVD+RW discs.
Summary: This is the second refurbished Panasonic DVD/VHS recorder I have purchased from Overstock.com. Both have worked perfectly! And as usual, the service of Overstock has been exceptional. The price is terrific and the shipping quick. Items were received in perfect condition in three days. The DMR-EZ485VK is an outstanding piece of equipment. Following the enclosed manual, it is a breeze to connect and set up. I use mine with my HDMI television to record over the air t.v.
