Newegg & UPS are Awesome


It was supposed to arrive today, came yesterday!!

So far it looks like it will do everything I want it to do. I will post more as I work with it

Long startup, but there is a standby mode that will shorten that. According to the manual, you cannot record digital broadcasts to video tape, which makes sense, just need to use DVD-RAM disks

I thought buying Panasonic would guarantee a quality product, but after 7 months this VCR/DVD Recorder is dead. Since I bought it referbished, it only had 90 days warranty so I am out $**** now. I have read other reviews, now, and my problem is not...

not what I expected


Had to return product because it will Not record digital tv to vcr. In my mind it is not a video cassette Recorder if it will not record. After I discovered this fact I did not investigate further. If this is not important to you you might like...

I would return it if I could


This is very poorly designed. It won't allow taping digital broadcasts to VCR, but then doesn't support auto-finalize when recording to DVD! Unreal - if you want to record something but don't intend to watch it on that machine, you can only record it...

Very nice front panel controls

Cannot record digital broadcast to VCR, but, absolutely incredibly, no auto-finalize when

exceeds expectations


My review is based on the unit's ability to burn DVD's from VHS tapes, which is the primary reason for the purchase; it does this fine. I've yet to figure out how to insert DVD chapters, but I reckon I will;

Product Specifications

By interpolating video data using proprietary algorithms, SD format data is up-converted to 1080 x 1920p HD format video data. This conversion increases the richness of the original data by almost six fold, producing the highest possible image quality when viewing content on a large-screen HDTV. The Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK DVD recorder is equipped with an SD memory card slot and USB terminal, which makes it easy to view photos from your digital camera. Just slip the SD card into the slot or use the cable to connect the camera to the USB terminal, and you're ready to enjoy a spectacular big-screen slideshow with family and friends. You can even listen to music recorded onto a USB device while viewing your photos.
