Expert review by:

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 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.

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...

has both DVD and VHS recording capability and digital tuner for digital antenna TV

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
