Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK review: 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.

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V review

 

Panasonic's feature-light combi recorder keeps VHS on life support

Operating system ; Recording quality

No series recording ; No USB port ; No SD card slot or DivX playback

Not up to Panasonic's usual high standards, but the EZ48V makes VHS-to-DVD archiving an absolute breeze

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V DVD / VHS Recorder

 

Banish those VHS tapes once and for all with the freeview-enabled Panasonic DMR-EZ48V recorder.

The operating system revolves around the Functions menu, which boasts a blissfully simple layout. From here you can access the Setup menu, which covers every conceivable option, as well as the Timer recording schedule and the Copy menu. The latter runs...

"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.

good product

 

couldn't be happier with the product, had alittle problem with the DVD recording feature but once I actually opened the manual( you the little book that men never read)it was a breeze to use, thinking about ordering another

Disappointing product.

 

I have several Panasonic products. But this unit was hard to use, slow to respond and froze when connected to TV. DVD needed replacing after less that 2 years. Costs $239 to repair. Liked the idea of having SD card slot and USB connection to use with...

Superior Product

 

Price is a little high but not bad. Wish it were around the $200 mark however.

This is by far the best DVD Recorder/VCR product I've owned. Once setup and programmed it really set's itself apart from other products. It's wide DVD compatibility, it's VP(Very long Play) feature for VHS Tapes that allows 10-15 hours of programming...

Have to turn off some of the power saving features to work as I would like it to. Such as auto shut-off, auto dim and the like. With these features off some of the issues that it has are resolved.

Seriously consider another product

 

Though it was a gift, I have gone two different units over the past year in an attempt to find one that works. Basically, it is unreliable at the best. As others have said, it randomly locks up, and requires unplugging to reset it. It is finicky at...
