As a combo Blu-ray player and TV recorder, the DMR-PWT520 does a good job -- it's quick, quiet and simple. The player's VIERA Connect Web features are OK, but you'll find better Internet video streaming from competitors.

Good features Simple and quick operation Good value

Mediocre VIERA Connect

Is the Panasonic DMR-PWT520 the perfect marriage of Freeview HD PVR and 3D Blu-ray deck?

Good picture quality ; Lots of features ; Big hard drive ; Good online services

User interface not very easy to use ; Media streaming features need improvement

This model has a sizeable 1TB hard drive, so even if you only ever record HD shows you'll still get around 229 hours of recording from it, or if you just fill it with standard definition recordings that figure jumps to around 518 hours - enough for...

Panasonic DMR-PWT520 Blu-ray player/HDD recorder

 

The Panasonic DMR-PWT520 offers excellent picture performance, great recording and plenty of smart functions, albeit with a sometimes-irritating interface.

Great DVD/Blu-ray picture performance ; Excellent twin tuner PVR ; WiFi for convenient connectivity ; Good range of smart functions

No reverse frame stepping ; Smart function interface is a little behind the times ; Poorly chosen lack of warnings on some key functions

A unit like this provides an all-in-one source: discs, network and internet-based content, and free-to-air TV. That it delivers top quality picture with all these makes the Panasonic DMR-PWT520 a very useful product

This unit does not support DivX and most other formats of video over DLNA, they work fine for USB interface, however over the home network, the media files supported is extremely limited which is mentioned in the user manual.

Good menu's

media playback is very limited over network
