Panasonic DMR-ES10S (silver)

 

Editor's note: An upgraded version of this product, the DMR-ES20 is available for the same $200 list price. It features a FireWire connection for easy dubbing from DV camcorders but is otherwise identical. Anyone with a DV camcorder looking to burn...

Relatively inexpensive; excellent recording quality; chasing playback and quick-start recordings with DVD-RAM discs; easy-to-use menus; flexible recording mode.

Inability to create chapter stops on +R/-R/-RW discs; no IR blaster for timed recordings.

Panasonic's entry-level DMR-ES10 DVD recorder offers excellent recording quality but falls short when it comes to editing features.

Panasonic DMR-ES10 review

 

Since DVD recorders first appeared,Panasonic has supported the DVD-RAM format.This system had the backing of the official industry body,the DVD Forum,but it lost out in popularity to DVD RW because recorders...

Panasonic DMR-ES10 review

 

Panasonic's budget DVD recorder shows the manufacturer at the top of its game, reaping the benefits of the company's history in the market. It can record to various -R/+R/RAM DVD media and is one of the few models that can offer quality recordings at...

Support for nearly every disc format ; AV performance ; Modern styling

No FireWire input ; Analogue tuner ; No DivX playback ; No DVD-RW VR mode

Audio performance is fairly perfunctory -- certainly no better or worse than a standard DVD player. However, if you have an AV amplifier, there's Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 output via optical digital out. The recorder captures standard stereo when...

First DVD recorder

 

Cheap

I still prefer my VCR

Consumer review by:

"What an excellent piece of machinery"

 

This is an excellent entry level DVD recorder, the big pros being the multiple formats that can record on (Only DVD+RW is not supported) and it's ease of use. True a hard drive would be nice but that doubles the price (DMR-ES85) It does everything that...

More formats than any other brands of recorder. Easy to understand menus

Looks like a DVD player from 1990. No DivX

Consumer review by:

"Nicely Priced, Feature rich"

 

I was able to set this unit with my Cable box in a breeze. Very easy to Use...You don't need a $400 Recorder from Sony. Has everything that you need.

Great Price, Nice to have features, easy to use, Customize DVD etc.

Cannot record 16:9 , except when using DVD-RAM

Consumer review by:

"Hot new features - Much Improved New Features!"

 

Full user opinion

Pros: Low price. Great recordings in LP (4Hr) speed

PIP & Commercial Skip wont work on Finalized DVDs.

"Works great first time; every time so far"

 

This is my first DVD recorder and I read a lot of reviews before I bought it. I was nervous because it seemed like there were lots of complaints about every model out there. This one is a jewel. For under $200 (it was $199 less 10% off sale at...

Easy to record from TV, VCR, TiVo; good tuner; excellent tech support 7-days a week; bonus RAM disk.

Manual could be a lot better; inputting chapters takes a lot of button pushing

Consumer review by:

"Why no 16:9 widescreen record ability?"

 

I just got this item today and noticed in the owners manual that it will only record in 16:9 aspect widescreen mode if you use DVD-RAM disks. Since I plan to use DVD-R this is a big disappointment. I called Panasonic and after 20 mins on hold they...

Ease of use.

Cannot record 16:9 widescreen on +R or -R media

Consumer review by:

I WILL NOT BUY A PANASONIC PRODUCT EVER AGAIN

 

Initially, I was really impressed with the product. I thought the editing features were simple yet effective. However, the player stopped working after a year and a half. It went into a continual "self check" loop and then completely stopped. I wrote ...

Seemed great at first ; Excellent recording and editing facilities

Reliability of a chocolate teapot ; Lousy customer service ; Did I mention the crappy reliability
