Performance

 

Panasonic DMR-ES30V

Easy to use; stellar recording quality with VHS-to-DVD transfers, especially in LP mode; Flexible Recording custom recording speed; includes rear-panel S-Video input; chasing playback with DVD-RAM discs.

Cannot place chapter stops on DVD+R/-R/-RW discs; poor editing options; VHS outputs through only composite or RF jacks; no FireWire input.

While its inability to place chapter stops on DVDs is a bummer, this capable dubber shines in most other areas.

With the DMR-ES30V, Panasonic has come as close as anything in this category to a perfect rating. It's an excellently designed combo device, incorpora...

DVD-recorder, easy to use, tons of features

Poor JPG and MP3 handling

Brilliant. If it weren't for the poor handling of JPG and MP3 discs, this DVD-recorder and VHS combo would get the perfect rating.

Panasonic DMR-ES30V VCR DVD recorder

 

The video boom of the eighties and nineties had one rather untidy consequence - an unsightly pile of VHS tapes in every living room around the country, most probably full of stuff you might not have watched before taping over it again.

Easy dubbing of VHS to DVD; excellent DVD picture quality

HDD decks offer even more editing flexibility; design is ordinary

A deck featuring a hard disk drive would offer more editing flexibility and, if you had the time, doing the job via a PC or Mac editing suite would be even better, but for most people this is a straightforward and effective solution.

Panasonic DMR-ES30V review

 

Review summary Panasonic's next-generation VHS/DVD-recorder combo raises the stakes dramatically in terms of recording quality, but a pretty picture isn't everything. Although the easy-to-use Panasonic DMR-ES30V ($350 list) delivers some of the best...

Consumer review (epinions.com)

great machine

 

A couple months ago my wife said that I had to do something with the ton of VHS tapes sitting in the garage. Any time I get an opportunity to buy a new toy I jump on it, particularly since my VHS deck had died and my DVD player was not far behind. ...

ease of use, convenience

none so far

Great Recording / Long confusing manual

 

Picture recording quality, ability to use all recording mediums.

Manual is too confusing for simple first time users.

The Best One Out There!

 

Easy to set up and use. Excellent picture quality! Multi-format DVDs. Sleek design.

Retail price is still a bit high - but worth it for Panasonic!

Solid feel, versatile performance, ergonomic (user friendly) design, great manual, easy setup/use, nice remote

VHS recording/playback is fine, but only for basics ; Better suited for dubbing than editing
