Panasonic DMR-EX98V review


Do you still have VHS tapes that you want to play – or, better still, transfer to DVD? Then Panasonic's smart-looking DMR-EX98V could be for you. As a DVD recorder-cum-VCR-cum-hard disk drive, it's certainly an interesting proposal.

Excellent AV erformance ; Sensibly-featured digital recorder

VHS-only VCR ; No analogue tuner ; No infra-red control over STB
