Panasonic DMR-ES15 dvd player review

Panasonic DMR-ES15 review

 

Panasonic's DMR-ES15 is an ideal entry-level recorder for anyone looking to upgrade their old VCR. The absence of a Freeview tuner will discourage digital TV users -- but compatibility, usability, recording and playback performance are otherwise excellent

Multi-format compatibility ; DV input ; Easy-to-use, accurate recordings ; Impressive DVD playback

Ordinary design ; Analogue tuner only ; No RGB Scart input

Thankfully, DVD playback hasn't been ignored as merely an afterthought. Progressive scan pictures in particular are impressively clean and cohesive with a tight grip on movement and digital disturbances in all but the most complex scenes, and colours...

Limited specification but affordable, easy-to-use and both the recording and playback performance is impressive.

Panasonic is the daddy of DVD recorders and, even at the ultra competitive entry-level, its DMR-ES15 can claim superior specification and performance over any of its rivals.

It is cheap but what good is it?

 

This is the second unit of this miserable machine that died on me. It is so awkward to use, and built so disgustingly cheap! Lurid Panasonic even scrimped on putting a cooling fan in the case, the unit overheats and breaks down in the middle of a ...

None, what good is it if it breaks!

It breaks BREAKS BBRREEAAKKSS !!!!

OVER 1 YEAR - STILL LOVE THIS UNIT!!!

 

I have used the PANASONIC DMR-ES15 DVD RECORDER on a daily basis for well over a year and at least 1000 hours of recording. After dealing with 5 product returns in less than one year on a Liteon recorder, I did a lot of research and decided to spend a ...

Good alternative to TIVO for cable user

 

I bought our unit in January '07. My goal was to be able to replace a VCR and to watch delayed TV such that I could skip commercials. I am cheap, so I did not want to have any monthly service (TIVO), and I use cable so getting a box from a satellite ...

Good VCR Replacement, Image Quality, Ease of Use, Time Shifting / Commercial Skip

Panasonic DMR-ES15 gives good Long Play performance

 

I bought this deck having read a few reviews first, I've learnt from friends' experiences that DVD recorders can be a bit of a minefield. I have to say I'm impressed with this machine. I have not put a make or format of blank DVD in that has caused the...

good quality recordings, even on long play.will record on virtually any make or format

lightweight flap covering front ports doesn't inspire confidence

Product Specifications

Panasonic is proud to launch the DMRES15. This recorder is compatible with all DVD disks, and combined with superlative ease of use and high picture quality, it is sure to be compatible with you! The DMRES15 offers the ease and convenience of Super Multi-Format Recording and Playback, which lets users play all of their DVDs, regardless of the recording format. This recorder is so simple to use! The DMRES15 features a new task-oriented Graphic User Interface (GUI), an iconic menu for Playback, Schedule, Delete, Copy, and Other Functions, making it easy to select and complete the most popular functions with the minimum of button presses and totally intuitive to use even for the least technical user. The DMRES15 adds another technology to the armory of ease-of-use functions with Quick Start and Record. Many DVD recorders take 20 or more valuable seconds to power-up and start recording, prone to missing the beginning of a program being recorded on the spur of the moment. The DMRES15 includes progressive scan to enable the best resolution on LCD or plasma panels. This high-precision progressive video processor handles 30-frame progressive scan images on NTSC disks. This lets you enjoy high-resolution progressive playback of original DVD images.
