Panasonic DMR-HW120

 

Panasonic's entry-level, twin-tuner Freeview HD PVR offers stacks of features.

Good picture quality ; Reliable recordings ; Clean and pleasant EPG ; Can share recordings over a network

Line-up of smart TV services could be better ; Interface isn't much fun to use

This model supports chase play too, so you can start watching a show from the beginning while the end is still recording. You can also pause live TV. Once you hit the pause button the recorder starts buffering the TV show to disc, so when you press...

I always try to buy Panasonic because like this recorder they are so easy to use. Setting up is simple. In fact I like everything about it. I have 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs.

Panasonic DMR-HW120

 

Easy to setup, Excellent picture quality and sound, on screen information OK but not great. HD recording good. Instructions a bit vague in places but not too hard to follow.

Only has BBC Iplayer, needs software update to include ITV, C4 & other Iplayer's. Price of Internet Wireless Dongle for this unit is very expensive so cheaper to hard wire using Ethernet adapters

Simultaneous recording

A bit slow to scroll through recordings. Takes 2 or 3 seconds to start playing after a pause.
