Panasonic DMR-HWT130EB 500GB


Good picture on recorded programms

Not easy to use but that could be because it is different from my last recorder. I have a Panasonic TV and they seem to fight between themselves who is going to display the picture. It may be different with a another tv make.

It's got all the channels you could ever need. No need for subscription no monthly payments. You can pause live TV so you want miss a thing. You also can record your favourite programs if your going to be out. So glad that I got this wonderful bit of...

The remote control is a bit sensitive I.e I put the remote down on the sofa next to me and a few seconds it would change channels or it would turn off with out actual touching it. Apart from that it's pucker.

Easy to set-up and use particularly if you have a Panasonic vieri TV to connect to it.

I haven't found any bad points either in use or design, with one small exception; the remote control lacks a vital ingredient, (a mute button) I always mute the intrusive sounds of adverts.

Picture quality excellent.

The instruction book is very difficult to understand because it doesn't start with the basics at the beginning. All the complicated possibilities confuse from the start.

This product is perfect


This product is very good especially the recording and the epg the pictures clear everything is easy to set up. The recordings are good. I would recommend this to those who have busy lives and don't have time to watch their programs on the day.
