Panasonic DMR-BWT850 review

 

Blessed with a wealth of features, this Blu-ray recorder is an impressive box of tricks...

It does everything

Expensive

Panasonic’s Blu-ray recorder is an impressive, but expensive, box of tricks

Great piece of kit!

 

Bought to replace a previous similar model 5 years old. The updated features and Freeview Play are great, the pictures from the HD tuners look really good. It does take a bit of work to get to know how to archive programmes onto dvd and blu-rays but...

Disappointing

 

I bought this to replace my Panasonic DMR BWT 740 which had stopped working (After replacing it, and being left unplugged for some time it is now working again) The new machine's connectivity is lacking. No phonos to connect to an amp and no scart...

Good so far

 

Had this a few weeks, and it does what it says on the tin, part from the remote access ("TV Anywhere" which I knew about before I purchased it). However the home streaming over Wi-Fi does work, as does the simultaneous recording of two broadcasts. Note...

Not as good as previous models

 

Apart from the changes to the program guide, which all reviews seem to hate, I found that button placement on the remote was not as intuitive as on previous models. I also found that the volume is far lower which means that when changing from TV to...

so so

Bought to replace Sky

 

Easy to set up and use. Freeview Plus is very good. Can wind back live tv, which matters to me. Just two niggles - no mute button on tv gadget, and when recording consecutive programmes on same channel plus one on another channel the box stops the...

Fairly useful product

 

I bought this item to replace a proprietary hard disk recorder (set top box) from a major broadband and TV provider and because it can play programs recorded on other units on the same network. Overall I find it's a really capable unit. The picture...

The ideal recorder

 

I wanted another Panasonic twin drive recorder that also burns to disc. This seems to be the only one, though I didn't need the blue ray bit. Works as well as my old one, which has given years of good service; straightforward and easy to use. Handbook...

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

Very full-featured kit, but takes some mastering

 

This is a perfectly competent Freeview+ PVR and DVD/BluRay player. What makes it quite literally unique in the marketplace is that it can also copy and write to both those types of disc. You always have to record to the unit itself, but you can then...
