Panasonic DMR-EH50

 

The DMR-EH50 offers exceptional playback and recording options, although some small quirks do detract from the overall package.

Records to multiple DVD formats ; Good recording quality ; Multiple inputs

Can't downsample HDD recording quality ; Scrollwheel annoying ; Complex menus

The scroll wheel on the remote is a cute idea, but in actual use we found it a bit clunky and slow to respond. We also hit a problem in some menu functions with it, as there's a natural inclination to hit the enter key to stop track seeking, where in...

Panasonic does it right again

 

So I've had this recorder for over a year and a half. I use it every day to record for later viewing and archiving when I want to keep it. It records to hard drive flawlessly and archives to DVD +/- R, 99% of the time. Sometimes if the video has been...

Good menu navigation, 99% dependable dubbing, 100% hard drive recording and scheduling

The newer models have firewire input

Hearty machine

 

I'm on my second DMR-E50. The first one finally died after a year's hard labor (daily, nonstop use). I bought my second one shortly thereafter, and it's going strong. Excellent machine if you don't need a hard drive for editing.

Produces discs that work in all machines; produces an excellent produce; hearty

Doesn't produce an excellent product beyond the 3 hour mode

Good bye to the VCR

 

I was getting tired of juggling tapes around... putting them in to see what was recorded on them to make sure I didn't tape over anything I hadn't seen yet, etc. Then having a bad recording because the tape I used several times was worn out. Plus I...

Ease of use, functionality, versatility

None really

Good VCR Replacement

 

My good old VCR was dieing a slow death. You can't fine a good VCR for sale anymore, you have to go with a DVD recorder. There are many out on the market and their prices are going down fast, but if you spend a little more You can get a great machine.

100 mg harddrive, quite small easy set up

24 hour setup for TV guide, Manual

Product Specifications

Improved horizontal resolution in LP mode renders images twice as sharp as last year's models, delivering up to 500 lines of horizontal resolution. A new 12bit Analog-to-Digital converter provides high bit, high rate sampling to convey even subtle nuances and produce smooth, beautiful recordings with astounding depth. What's more, this model has the PAL Progressive Scan feature, so you can enjoy highly detailed, high-resolution playback. The DMR-EH50's built-in SD Memory Card slot and SD viewer for JPEG images allow fast, easy networking and file sharing between the DVD Recorder and many Personal Computers, Digital Cameras and Video Cameras, and other SD-enabled A/V devices, such as Panasonic's line of fully integrated VIERA Plasma Displays.
