Panasonic DMR-EH75V (DVD recorder / VCR combo with 80GB HDD)

 

The Panasonic DMR-EH75V's design is pretty basic, but we prefer it to the more cluttered exterior we've seen on similar units. You'll notice that it's little larger than the usual component, measuring 16.94 by 13.88 by 3.33 inches. Underneath the DVD...

Records video to DVD, VHS, or 80GB hard drive; outstanding recording quality, especially in LP mode; 80GB hard drive; HDMI output; high-speed hard drive-to-DVD dubbing; free TV Guide electronic programming guide worked in our tests; slot for Secure...

TV Guide EPG isn't as slick as TiVo; subpar HDMI upscaling video quality; some disc compatibility issues.

Panasonic's DMR-EH75V DVD/VHS/hard drive recorder is a solid choice for hobbyists who want top-notch recording quality and a subscription-free DVR solution.

Panasonic DMR-EH75V - DVD recorder / VCR combo with 80GB HDD

 

Awesome DVD Recorder with 80 gb harddrive. All your converting and burning jobs can be done on this one machine. If you want to move a section of your video to the begining or end, you can create Playlists and switch that section on your DVD harddrive,...

80 gb harddrive. Copy, burn and convert all types of mediums; DVD, VHS, SD, TV. Record modes XP,SP,LP,EP,&FR. Up to 6 hrs of video can be burned to disc. Create playlists, switch around bookmarks, 9 colors choices of menu options

Remote control does not have a "close DVD tray" button. You have to manually close the tray. Instuction manual not user friendly. Cannot make backup copies of copyright dvd's. Clock loses a minute every 2 months

I like it because I can record video straight from my panasonic video camera, which has a hard drive, to a dvd or the hdd, then can edit the titles by dividing them, creating chapters in them, making my own custom thumbnails so that my almost 2 year...

The hard drive is amazing, I record tons from tv, camcorder, pictures from sd cards, I edit out commercials and bad parts from video, pick what I want to put on dvd, create chapters and use divide title to split recordings up and make custom

There's always things you would like to have had added, but as far as something it has that doesn't work, I haven't found anything like that, I've enjoyed it and haven't had a need to change

I HAVE OWNED PANASONIC PRODUCTS FOR YEARS. NOT ANY MORE. VERY HI COST PRODUCT, WITH A SHORT LIVE SPAN AND A "CARE LESS" ATTITUDE FROM PANASONIC MAKES THIS THE LAST PANASONIC PRODUCT I EVER PURCHASE.

FEATURES WORKED GOOD WHILE THEY WORKED

A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS OF USE THE DVD WENT BAD AND TRIED TO GET PANASONIC TO WORK WITH ME TO GET UNIT FIXED. AFTER 5 MONTHS OF PHONE CALLS AND NO RESPONSE FROM SERVICE OR MANAGEMENT I GAVE UP

I've come to dislike this product because of the difficulty during the past year in scheduling recordings and the loss of the HDMI output which I need for using the PIP feature of my TV

Initially was easy to schedule recordings. Easy to play DVDs and recordings on DVR

Scheduling recordings became much more cumbersum when it stopped getting TV guide data off cable and the clock doesn't keep the correct time. Also the HDMI output stopped working

Highly recommended!

Great quality

If you don't read the manual, you will have a hard time. Still trying to connect it to my Tivo

Even the Panasonic tech could not answer my questions. Graphics in setup mode are terrible. Don't plan to use with 1080P. Can't handle it in almost all modes.

Nice shiney case

Unit extremely difficult to program and graphics poor

Before you buy any Panasonic products think again.... I purchased a DVD Recorder and within 10 months of usage the unit broke down and corrupted 5 DVD's. When I called Panasonic customer service they blamed the type of DVD I was using which is DVD -R....

Tuner; Remote Control

Flawed design; Software and firmware not thouroghly tested; DVR breaks down within few months of usage; Bad Customer Service

"Excellent unit with minor flaws."

 

I am new to DVD recording, but I did a LOT of homework. I went to the Panasonic units because of their superior recording quality. I originally bought an ES40V and was generally happy with it, but I read it had a lot of problems and a new generation...

HDD allows excellent editing, Excellent conversion from VHS to HDD to DVD, Reliable TV Program Guide and Excellent picture quality.

Time-consuming editing, poor remote and poor manual and disapointed that it doesn't automatically create thumbnail chapters as other units do.

"A good unit, difficult to use"

 

I purchased this unit after reading the comments from my fellow reviewers, and I must echo the positive comments from most, on the technical merits of the machine. My only criticism is the poor user interface and the horrible user manual. Reading that...

great to have it all in one unit: VHS, DVD, HD. Nice for converting VHS to DVD.

Poor user interface design, and a user manual that is IMPOSSIBLY difficult.

Product Specifications

With a single cable, HDMI enables transmission of not only A/V signals but also control signals. All you have to do to enjoy a new level of operation convenience is hook up to a VIErA or home theater system with HDAVI Control compatibility. When you want home theater entertainment, for example, just press a button on the remote. Power to all the components switches on, TV input and other settings are automatically adjusted, and the shows ready to begin. It's that easy. One-touch 6-way Copying on the DMR-EH75V lets you copy between the hard disk drive and a DVD disc, a VHS tape and the hard disk drive, and a VHS tape and a DVD disc, by pressing a single button. For example, you can store several VHS tapes on the hard disk without all the trouble of cables and settings required to connect a separate VCR, and then easily edit the stored data and save the result onto a DVD disc. In addition, the SD card slot of this handy 4-in-1 model lets you view images taken with a digital still camera, and save them onto the hard disk drive or a DVD disc.
