Great Product


I use it to watch recorded movies and to record tv shows. I love that it plays Divx recordings because I can have 5 movies on one disc. I only have one negative comment,I do have to push the reset button when it locks up to get the machine to respond....

Easy to Use, Simple Setup, Excellent Picture Quality

I had purchased a Panasonic DMR-EZ48K Recorder and immediately experienced hardware issues. The first unit would lockup and not respond to commands, to include pressing the reset button, channel reset, and/or power button.

If it actually did work, it would be a nice unit

Almost perfect!


We don't have cable, satellite, or any other pay-tv service, so when we were looking for DVD recorders, it had to have a tuner. That eliminated about 95% of the models on the market. Of those remaining, the Panasonic had the best reviews, so we picked...
