Panasonic DMR-E50 review: Panasonic DMR-E50

 

Relatively inexpensive; excellent recording quality in XP and SP modes; simultaneous recording and playback with DVD-RAM; MP3 CD playback.

No IR blaster for cable or satellite control; soft recording quality in EP mode; no FireWire input.

The least-expensive DVD recorder on the market lacks some key add-ons, but it performs its basic tasks well.

Panasonic DMR-E30, DMR-HS2

 

The progressive-scan Panasonic DMR-E30 is a DVD player that also records to rewritable DVD-RAM discs ($8 each) or write-once DVD-Rs ($5 each).

Panasonic DMR-E30 review: Panasonic DMR-E30

 

Panasonic DMR-E30

Variable recording time; improved MPEG noise reduction; progressive-scan output; lower price.

Lackluster remote; no thumbnail menus; lacks FireWire connectivity.

Much improved and a little less costly than its predecessor, the DMR-E30S may not be a total bargain, but it has a lot to recommend it.

Panasonic DMR-E30 DVD Video Recorder

 

Introduction The arrival of affordable DVD recorders - and certainly their acceptance - has been delayed by that good old audio industry phenomenon, a format war. There are no less than four different recordable DVD formats, with apparently very little...

Only Broken Twice

Good riddance VHS - DVD Recordable has arrived!

 

I've long wanted a DVD recorder, but price was always a major deterent, along with the price of the media itself, and the seeming incompatibilities amongst the +R/-R formats. When my VCR died several months ago, and our (Cheap) backup VCR on it's way ...

Price, disc compatibility with standalone DVD players, DVD-Ram capability.

Poor IR reception, clunky "Keyboard" letter input, slow reaction to buttons, inability to disable VCR-Plus.

Well worth the money.

 

Ive been using this unit for 5 days since I received it so Ill try to give you an overview of my experience with it. The first thing you notice is the sleek utilitarian look of the unit. The LED cover shines like a mirror when the unit isnt turned on....

Very affordable, progressive scan, general fun factor.

Poor remote, some media incompatibility. no DV input.
