Panasonic DMR-BW880 review: PS3 beater?

Costs three times as much as a PS3

Panasonic DMR-BW880

 

Does what we want, relatively easy to set up and use, and if its anything like our other panasonic HDD PVR which has so far never let us down, I will be more than happy. The hand set is well laid out compared to most other we had tried. We have had...
