Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK DVD Recorder

FRED59, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: This unit had great potential for replacing my VHS for timeshifting with my outside antenna. Unfortunately, it has come to the point that I must unplug the power cord each time I want to time shift, otherwise the unit freezes up-locks up and won't record. We have missed a lot of shows we planned on seeing later because of this flaw. Panasonic is totally uncommitted in helping us with this problem.
  • Pros: LOTS of Options
  • Cons: Timer recorder freezes up, not reliable for time shifting, complicated,very poor customer relations, won't convert digital TV signal to analog VHS for recording.

A really good product.

  • Summary: I think it's a great dvd recorder / vhs recorder. Setting it up was relatively easy, although it is evidently capable of advanced functions. I've also formatted my dvds on it very quickly.
  • Pros: Can record onto dvd or vcr, watch both dvds and tapes, watch one program while recording another.
  • Cons: I have been unable to set up the Viera link properly, although I've tried a couple of times.

there's a problem...

  • Summary: Help me out here, folks. Am I the only person left who timeshifts with the VCR? I do it every day. A DVD-RW works too, (I'm using that now) but it takes five clicks thru three menus to format a disk; which you have to do before recording. Much less convenient than VCR. I fear I'll have to return the product (are you listening Best Buy?
  • Pros: good ergonomics in the remote; top quality recording
  • Cons: WILL NOT RECORD DIGITAL BROADCAST TO VCR!!!

Great Quality

  • Summary: I had Sony's comparable RDR-VXD655 for a week before comparing the DMR-EZ48VK. Immediately, I noticed the quality of the build, which is solid and not flimsy as with the Sony, Samsung, or LG units. - To schedule a recording is very easy. Just press "Schedule" on the remote control and select channel, time, frequency (daily, weekly, M-F, etc.), and press OK.
  • Pros: Picture Quality; Build Quality; 1080P Up Conversion; Lots of Inputs; Large Clock Display; User Friendly
  • Cons: Size (slightly bigger than the Sony, Samsung, and LG but smaller than a Toshiba).

very good dvd/vcr unit

  • Summary: this is the exact machine as the EZ485VK, except this one doesn't come with an HDMI cable; their instruction manuals are one and the same; both are easy to operate, and the recorded images are very clear on dvd, fairly clear on vhs; would definitely recommend the unit to anyone looking to upconvert dvd movies, and looking for a vhs player to play or record videotapes
  • Pros: clarity of video from hdmi upconversion on dvd playback; ease of converting vhs tapes onto dvd
  • Cons: takes a few seconds to turn on, so if you need to record something immediately(like a funny commercial),you might miss a small segment; this is not an issue if you have Viera Link - a Panasonic TV
