Panasonic DMR-BWT800 review


As expensive as it is ambitious, Freeview HD, 3D, Blu-ray, Skype and streaming are appealing

Sparkling images from all sources ; All-in-one appeal ; Archiving compression options

Freeview HD EPG ; HDD smaller than Sky and Virgin ; Fragmented user interface ; Remote control

Panasonic Diga DMR-BWT800 review


A/V racks filled with high-end equipment might look impressive, but they take up a lot of room, tend to be power-hungry and create a surprising amount of heat. If you want to simplify your home cinema setup, Panasonic's DMR-BWT800EB all-in-one system...

Packed with features, but we weren't keen on the user interface and it's expensive

Panasonic DMR-BWT800


Panasonic's latest Blu-ray/HDD recorder combi, packs in twin Freeview HD tuners, Skype and built-in Wi-Fi among its staggering array of features

Amazing range of features ; Superb picture quality from all sources ; Extensive recording and editing functionality

Cluttered EPG and disjointed menus ; Viera Cast content (no BBC iPlayer) ; Expensive

Composite, analogue stereo, optical digital and coaxial digital audio outputs are also provided, alongside an Ethernet port and a second USB port for the Skype communication camera. Usefully the deck is also fitted with two RGB-capable Scart sockets,...

Panasonic DMR-BWT800 hands-on test


The Panasonic DMR-BWT800 Blu-ray recorder shows promise, even if its 3D recording capability is rather redundant. It will probably be too expensive for most normal people, though.

Records and plays Blu-rays ; 3D recording could be cool in the future ; Stylish

Likely to be very expensive ; There's not much 3D content to record

The Panasonic DMR-BWT800 looks like a cracking device, but it's hamstrung by the fact that there's not much 3D content to record. It's still a capable Blu-ray player and Freeview HD recorder, though, so there's not all that much to worry about -- apart...

Panasonic DMR-BWT800


The Panasonic DMR-BWT800 has been billed as the ultimate video recorder, with a Freeview receiver, PVR, 3D-ready Blu-ray player, network streamer, digital media library and videophone all wrapped up in a single box. But is it worth the price?

Amazing range of features; Superb picture quality from all sources; Extensive recording and editing functionality

Cluttered EPG and disjointed menus; Viera Cast content; Expensive

Panasonic DMR-BWT800


The Panasonic DMR-BWT800 is the most feature rich set-top box we have ever come across. It has twin Freeview HD tuners, a 500GB hard drive capable of recording up to 300 hours of content, connections for every major cable, including HDMI, optical and...

We love the Panasonic DMR-BWT800, but feel it has come out too soon and at a price that is prohibitively high, however, if you are looking for a future proof device and have throwaway cash, this is the best of the best in PVRs. Panasonic DMR-BWT800 is...
