Panasonic DMR-PWT500 review

 

You might think that a Blu-ray player with a Freeview HD recorder shoehorned into its case would suffer from clicks and thrums, or that co-habitation would add unflattering pounds.

Compact; excellent Blu-ray pictures, good Freeview HD recording

Limited file support across a LAN; limited UK portal content; daft 3D picture processing; small HDD

Panasonic DMR-PWT500 PVR and Blu-ray player

 

Panasonic DMR-PWT500GL review: an all-in-one 3D PVR and Blu-ray player

BD, DVD, TV, 3D in one device ; Built-in Wifi ; 2D to 3D conversion

The convenience is expensive ; No VIERA Connect video-on-demand service ; Limited functionality while recording

The Panasonic DMR-PWT500GL represents a convenient all-in-one product for consolidating your media consumption -- it can handle Blu-rays, DVDs, digital TV and 3D content. It's not perfect though -- there's no way to get your recordings off for...

Panasonic DMR-PWT500 review

 

A Freeview HD PVR which also has a Blu-ray player built-in

Impressive picture and sound ; record two channels at once ; network and internet access

No BBC iPlayer ; some have bigger hard disks ; separates perform marginally better

Panasonic’s new all-in-one one-box is a very accomplished all-rounder

Panasonic DMR-PWT500

 

Get Freeview HD and 3D Blu-ray in one go with Panasonic's impressive combi recorder.

Lots of features ; Flexible recording and editing functionality ; Outstanding Blu-ray and hi-def Freeview picture quality

Poor EPG ; Comparatively limited web content ; Noisy SD pictures

However, there is an Ethernet port and a second USB port specifically designated for Panasonic’s TY-CC10W communication camera, which is required if you want to use Skype video calling – one of this unit’s most alluring features.

Panasonic DMR-PWT500 3D BD Freeview HD DVR

 

Review In the Twilight Zone between Blu-ray players and DVRs you'll find Panasonic's DMR-PWT500 that boasts a combination disc spinner and digital TV timeshifter. Space-saving convenience is main USP of this hybrid, so if you want one box that can do...

Net connected 3D Blu-ray player with a Freeview+ HD DVR to boot.

The overriding bad point is that the TV cannot be used whenever the DVR is switched ON. Either way the DVR interferes with the aerial signal input and output. Also the aerial input is prone to loss of signal - I had to wait until the digital signal was...

Good editing facilities. Excellent image quality. Built in Blu-ray player a bonus at cost of stand alone PVR.

Constant advert in EPG extremely irritating.

Panasonic DMR-PWT500

 

Very easy to set up, had no problems whatsoever. A very good unit. Cant give it top marks as there is no HDMI included in the package.

No HDMI cable. But i anticipated that and bought 2 online which only cost half the amount charged for one at the store.
