Panasonic DMR-XS350 - Freesat DVD & HDD Recorder


If the Blu-ray based DMR-BS850 was a little too dear, its DVD based cousin, the DMR-XS350, might be for you.

Panasonic DMR-XS350


High quality recording ; Interfaces reasonably well with a Panasonic TV ; Covers all the useful functions, including burning to DVD
