Panasonic’s first PVR is impressively easy to use

Good Gear Guide.au

  • Summary: The DMR-HW220 is the first dedicated set-top box from Panasonic, and it handles basic set-top box duties very well. Its Internet features are reasonable, but more useful is its capacious hard drive and smooth and simple operation.
  • Pros: Fast operation, Accessible interface, Plenty of hard drive space
  • Cons: VIERA Connect is inferior to Samsung and LG
