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
