Panasonic DMR-EA18K review: Panasonic DMR-EA18K


In preparation from the upcoming analog-to-digital DTV transition , any device manufactured since 2007 and equipped with a standard analog NTSC tuner has been federally mandated to also include a digital ATSC tuner. For manufacturers of DVD recorders,...

Outstanding recording quality, with a best-in-class LP mode; flexible recording speed; chasing playback with DVD-RAM discs; USB port and SDHC card slot; upscales DVD to 1080p; included IR blaster can control a cable or satellite box.

No built-in tuner to receive analog or digital television broadcasts; cannot play back DivX files.

Outstanding recording quality and tons of features, like flexible recording speed and chasing playback, make the Panasonic DMR-EA18K an excellent all-purpose DVD recorder.

I already had an earlier panasonic recorder so the transition to the new one was easy. I like the USB port and the camera slot. They work better than I expected but why did you remove the feature that opens and closes the disc door with the remote???...

Great Quality and Features


I unit was very easy to setup and use right out of the box. It has all the features I need and am quite impressed with the recording quality. Wish there was an eject button on the remote. I would highly recommend this unit.

Nice product


Performs exactly as advertised. Was looking for a recorder without a tuner since most OTA broadcasts in my area are copy protected. Works great with a converter box.

Digital Turner Funtionalities ?????


This unit doesn't have a turner. Much less a digital one. I am sure this is a good unit but the only reason I bought it was because my customer needs a turner. They did take it back and let me buy the one I need. I do need to float the 150. till they...

So Far, So Pleased


The customer reviews of this product helped my decision to buy it. The swift delivery surprised me. The quality of the recorded video & audio was better than expected, and the recorder is not connected to an HDTV. I am now considering purchasing an...

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. Connect your Panasonic DVD recorder to your Viera flat-panel HDTV via an HDMI cable, and the TV channel setting information is automatically downloaded to the recorder. Once the auto preset download is complete, the DVD recorder will keep whichever TV channel you're watching as its receiving channel. This means you can record the program you're watching by just pressing the Record button on the Viera remote. With Viera Link, you don't have to worry about setting the recorder to the right channel every time you want to record something. The Panasonic DMR-EA18 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. All of Panasonic's DVD recorder models are designed in compliance with Panasonic's universal design principles. Frequently used buttons are located at the top of the main unit to make them easier to see when the unit is placed in a rack and you need to look down when operating it. Both the remote control and Graphical User Interface (GUI) were designed for easy use by everyone, based on the results of a Panasonic survey.
