Worst piece of junk ever.

 

GARBAGE

Pros? Glad the junk broke, got me a streaming DVD, I can watch Netflix, Youtube etc

Broke the first time I tried to convert. It was past one year warranty, Panasonic couldn't care less, despite letters, multiple calls. Probably gave me a fictitious email address to send one complaint to. They're SO DUMB, if they had even given me a

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

Update on previous review

 

Very glad that I bought this product.

Much better dvd recording quality than expected. Very little drop off in quality when recording on dvd from TV on the XP ( 1 hour ) SP ( 2 hour ) and the LP ( 4 hour ) modes with the EP ( 8 hour ) mode a little fuzzy but not as bad as I thought. VHS to...

Digital recorder

 

I purchased 2 Panisonic DMD -Ez485VK recorders (Refurbished). The price was right and they do everything I wanted and more. One unit is hooked up to my 61 inch SONY (capable of HD ). I then added a splitter plus an A/B switch and now can record on...

Not a good product

 

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 so easy setup

 

I received the dvd/vcr combo within 4 days of ordering.When I began to set it up I had the problem of accessing the many wires and cables that were not easily accessible behind my tv setup.In addition the combination of splitters and cables that I had...

Consumer review by:

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
