Panasonic DMR-EX75 review


Fantastic features and recording at a reasonable price

Comprehensive sockets and good-sized hard drive

Doesn't handle upscaling well

Panasonic DMR-EX75 review


Panasonic's DMR-EX75 is a hybrid recorder with an impressive specification and superb functionality. Recordings using either the 160GB hard drive or universal disc formats offer flexible control. And both recording and playback performance is excellent

Recording flexibility ; Universal compatibility ; Slimline design ; Ease of use ; Recording and playback performance

Only one Freeview TV tuner, so you can't record and watch different channels

Equally impressive is the performance of DVD playback, especially if you own a display with an HDMI input. Upscaled DVD images appear incredibly detailed, exposing the slightest nuances in tones and textures. Colours are more naturally balanced and...

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

Comprehensive sockets and good-sized hard drive

Doesn't handle upscaling well

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

The DVD drive failed when the machine was out of warranty. We decided to buy an alternative, newer Panasonic rather than repair the DVD drive but we had 2 different Panasonic models that suffered from the same problem when programming recordings...

Easy to use

Unreliable - repeated breakdowns

Consumer review by: James Turner (



Great machine which cost me around 280 in December. I was so impressed that I persuaded my 77 year old parents to get one and they are coping admirably with it (they paid 275 in February).

Great pictures ; good digital tuner holds signal well ; upscaling is excellent (HDMI cable needed). Easy to tweak auto recording e.g. if you want to extend the end time just in case everything is running a few minutes late. Time slip and one touch...

As with all these machines the manual looks a little daunting but in fact this is an easy machine to use ; I am quite happy with build quality but there again didn't compare it to many others. As it sits on my AV unit it isn't really going to come in...
