Panasonic DMR-PWT550

 

Panasonic's latest Blu-ray player/hard-disk recorder is one of the first to incorporate Freeview Play, the new connected TV platform that combines live broadcasts and catch-up TV in a single EPG.

Extensive features and file support ; Superb Freeview HD and Blu-ray pictures ; Clear, intuitive EPG layout

Limited functionality while recording ; Sluggish EPG ; Dated DLNA playback menus

Worth every penny

 

Our old Humax died on us, so after researching we bought this Panasonic DMR-PWT550EB to go with and upgrade our 8 year old Panasonic plasma. It is so easy to set up, it practically does it for you. The remote is compatible with our TV and the system...
