Panasonic DMR-EX75 review


Fantastic features and recording at a reasonable price

Comprehensive sockets and good-sized hard drive

Doesn't handle upscaling well

A real all-round performer, this recorder is well worth considering

The 160GB hard drive, which gives you around 70 hours in the standard SP mode rising to 284 using the lowest quality mode, is distinctly smaller than the LG and Hitachi models. But, unless you intend archiving everything you ever recorded the...

Feature filled; complete connectivity; ease of use; excellent recordings using all quality modes

Comparatively poor build quality

Instantly setting out its stall, the DMR-EX75 offers upscaling via an HDMI output, up to 720p or 1080i resolution and then fills out one of the most impressive CVs we've seen. As well as the HDMI output, this deck has comprehensive socketry

At approx $250 a year for 3 not really doesn't explain faults.i think if the power outage didn't happen i'd still be happy . but i had surge protectors and all....still didn't help. next one not so expensive i think.

got it 3 yrs ago , has been great , did everything it promised to do , especially recording fox . and then one stormy night....

after a power outage during a storm it would not work. kept coming up with u-81 error on display.happens to a lot apperantly & panasonic can't explain . most techs say throw it ...cost $700. plus not enough component usb.

A pricey but good quality machine. It is a jike that in this day and age a DVD player will not play Divx or AVi files. Come on Panasonic players at a quarter the cost from chin a can do this, customers want it so listen!

Well known and established brand, VIERA link capable to other Panasonic devices, good reputation for reliability and durability, easy and straight forward to use, useful Hard Drive space, good picture and playback quality, easy Hard Drive editing

premium (excessive?) price, does not play Divx or AVI files, no twin tuner, Standard Def Digital TV only should be High Def at the price, not enough in or outputs for connecting other devices

Overall this is a brilliant unit. I have poor analogue signal on Channel Nine so I couldn't buy a normal unit with analgoue receiver. At the last minute I realised that most of the units on the market only come with an analogue receiver so I bought...

Simple to use, fast recording (1 second), easy menu system, inbuilt SD digital receiver. The remote also doubles up as the TV remote so you can ditch a remote.

Not much other than hard dive space but that is as much my problem as I should go through the recorded programs more regularly and clean it out. Premium price is an issue - I paid $725 from HN about 12 months ago. Also you can't record one show and...

Excellant picture, quick and easy to use, good library display for recorded programmes.

Only one digital tuner.

Very easy to use the hard drive and the DVD. Good amount of storage and brilliant to be able to watch one something that has been recorded and to record something else at the same time.

Not intuitive as to how to stop recordings that have already started. Not as straightforward as it could be to record a program that has already started.
