Panasonic DMR-EX98V review


Panasonic's DVD/HDD/VCR is the convergence king

Excellent AV performance ; Sensibly-featured digital recorder

VHS-only VCR ; No analogue tuner ; No infra-red control over STB

A well-featured machine that performs well and is only let down by some compatibility issues

Panasonic DMR-EX98V DVD/HDD/VHS Recorder


Panasonic's DMR-EX98V isn't cheap, but it does a fine job of combining modern recording formats with VHS.

The DMR-EX98V is a really impressive piece of kit - flexible, convenient and surprisingly easy to use considering the vast amount of features on board. And in terms of picture quality the Panasonic is near flawless, whether it's live, recorded or on...

Panasonic DMR-EX98V


Fairly easy to use, considering all the functionality.

Display of the TV Guide not brilliant. To use all the functions requires time and patience, although basic use of DVD, HDD and VHS pretty straightforward.

Panasonic DMR-EX98V


I've an older Panansonic VHS/DVD and bought the newer version becuase I loved the older version so much. The new model, with improved features, was bought for the main room. The older VHS/DVD is still working well in another room and hasn't let me...

None that I've found and I bought it because the older version had no bad points that I could find.
