Not reliable

 

My next unit will be a different brand.

Easy to use and set up

I've had 2 of these now and each time the tuner burned out after a year and a half (naturally right after the warranty expired). The units tended to freeze up for no apparent reason and occasionally didn't record a scheduled program

Nice DVD Recorder, but...

 

Panasonic just didn't give the screw a complete turn on this model.

Records very nicely

No Eject button on the remote. An HDMI input would have been nice
