Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK

 

Editors' note (February 17, 2010): Panasonic has indicated that it plans to continue selling this 2008 model through the 2010 model year.

Outstanding DVD-recording quality, with a best-in-class LP mode; flexible recording speed; chasing playback with DVD-RAM discs; USB port and SDHC card slot for playback of MP3, DivX, and JPEG files; upscales DVD to 1080p; VHS-to-DVD dubbing for home...

VHS operations are a bit slow; expensive; no Blu-ray compatibility.

Outstanding recording quality, tons of features, and a built-in digital TV tuner make the Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK an excellent all-purpose DVD and VHS recorder.

Panasonic Diga DMR-EZ48VK

 

The Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK is an easy to use recorder that also has decent picture quality. It is would be ideal for someone who has old VHS tapes and needs to transfer them to DVD without much fuss. It is a solid machine at a reasonable price.

"Don't, it freezes constantly"

 

Tonight, we tried to add recordings for which there was plenty of room on the disk which worked before we left. Came home to "disc improperly formatted" So we not only lost the program scheduled tonight, but the last two nights also. I had replayed...

Features, but the unit rarely works

The unit constantly malfunctions. It is very slow to accept and register settings. It can take 5-10 minutes to power on just to insert or change disk. It frequently must be unplugged and allowed to reset.

"Very slow to start, hear one cannot record Digital TV"

 

When I first bought this unit, I thought it worked decently. It powered on fast initially. However after about 2 months, the unit takes about a minute to power on --for what reason for this change, I don't know and cannot explain. I tried to reset it...

The unit is very slow to start, though it initially was faster. Hear one cannot record digital antenna TV broadcasts

Good but could be better

 

best on market when I bought it but not now, however it has lasted over 5 years and still burnes great.

Plays movies good and records off air great. copies tapes great

absolutely will not record anything off the composite and s video inputs to dvd so recording from tv is definitely out. Only records to vhs from it. So, you have to record to vhs and then copy from vhs to dvd. takes 4 hours for most football games that w

Won't do what I want

 

I bought this product to convert my old VHS movie tapes to DVD. My VHS player died and I can't seem to find a new one. So, I thought it was time to get rid of them. I'm not trying to rip off movies. I already purchased the VHS tapes from the store. I...

Well made and seems to play both DVDs and VHS tapes fine

Won't copy store bought movies to DVD
