Panasonic DMR-BS850 review


Blu-ray recorders are big news in Japan, and now they're in the UK. So what do we make of the Freesat-enabled DMR-BS850?

Amazingly versatile ; Superb BD record quality ; Twin Freesat tuners ; Viera Cast internet access

Requires broadcasters to play ball ; AVCHD dubs to DVD in SD

The first Blu-ray recorder in the UK, it incorporates dual Freesat tuners, BD Live and 'net access, but test results are a mixed bag: We noted unimpressive audio and video jitter (like the BD60) but generally good hi-def video performance
