Panasonic DMR-ES15 dvd player


Panasonic has built a fine reputation in the DVD recorder market, with a range of excellent models. Decks that combine a DVD recorder with a hard disk recorder are more versatile, but the basic recorder on test here is more likely to appeal to those...

14 hours recording time; Progressive scan output

No RGB input; no Freeview tuner

There is an awful lot to like about this DVD recorder, and if RGB recordings aren't an issue for you it should go straight on to your shortlist.

This budget recorder has plenty of features

Solid recordings ; excellent playback

No RGB input

Very good budget model that would have walked away with top marks if it had an RGB input

Panasonic DMR-ES15


Limited specification but affordable, easy-to-use and both the recording and playback performance is impressive.

Multi-format compatibility ; DV input ; Easy-to-use, accurate recordings ; Impressive DVD playback

Ordinary design ; Analog tuner only ; No RGB Scart input

Thankfully, DVD playback hasn't been ignored as merely an afterthought. Progressive scan pictures in particular are impressively clean and cohesive with a tight grip on movement and digital disturbances in all but the most complex scenes, and colours...

Panasonic is the daddy of DVD recorders and, even at the ultra competitive entry-level, its DMR-ES15 can claim superior specification and performance over any of its rivals.

Universal compatibility; DV input for camcorders; user-friendly functionality; class leading performance

Ordinary design; no RGB Scart input

It is cheap but what good is it?


This is the second unit of this miserable machine that died on me. It is so awkward to use, and built so disgustingly cheap! Lurid Panasonic even scrimped on putting a cooling fan in the case, the unit overheats and breaks down in the middle of a ...

None, what good is it if it breaks!

I have used the PANASONIC DMR-ES15 DVD RECORDER on a daily basis for well over a year and at least 1000 hours of recording. After dealing with 5 product returns in less than one year on a Liteon recorder, I did a lot of research and decided to spend a ...

Good alternative to TIVO for cable user


I bought our unit in January '07. My goal was to be able to replace a VCR and to watch delayed TV such that I could skip commercials. I am cheap, so I did not want to have any monthly service (TIVO), and I use cable so getting a box from a satellite ...

Good VCR Replacement, Image Quality, Ease of Use, Time Shifting / Commercial Skip

Media Compatibility, Heat

Panasonic DMR-ES15 gives good Long Play performance


I bought this deck having read a few reviews first, I've learnt from friends' experiences that DVD recorders can be a bit of a minefield. I have to say I'm impressed with this machine. I have not put a make or format of blank DVD in that has caused the...

good quality recordings, even on long play.will record on virtually any make or format

lightweight flap covering front ports doesn't inspire confidence

Perfect entry level DVD recorder


Transfer your home videos for a lot less then a service will charge you. If you can find one of these go for it… They only have an analog receiver so they won’t get digital signal unless you have a converter when the world goes digital, but ...

Inexpensive and easy to use recording

Advanced editing only on DVD-RAM
