Confirmed purchaser Quality seeker with value

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
super image quality on recordings. Works in tandem with a Panasonic HD LCD television and with one remote if preferred. Easy to set up & use. Dual tuner means you never miss any program. When playing musical DVD's you need a good sound system. Bose home cinema is the best!
Bad points:
Slow to warm up when first switched on - i.e. approx. 30 seconds before able to enter details on remote.

foxmeister, Yorkshire Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
1. Attractive styling; 2. Smart remote control; 3. Easy to set up; 4. Easy to read 7 day ahead EPG; 5. EPG populates quickly; 6. Handy Direct Navigator feature.
Bad points:
1. Expensive; 2. Unlike the Humax, when recording two programmes the dual channel tuner feature cannot differentiate between recording from two different channels and recording two consecutive programmes on the same channel; 3. Its necessary to select a 'genre' everytime before the EPG will apppear. 4 No programme information is available for programmes recorded on disk; 5. Copying to DVD takes a long time. 6. I needed a genuine Panasonic HDMI cable before this would work with my Panasonic TV.

Sue, Huddersfield

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to record freesat channels. I never learned how to use my old video recorder's timer record function, but this one is easy. I didn't even need to read the instruction booklet. We have found the twin freesat tuner to be extremely useful as we can record one channel and watch another at the same time. If you are recording two channels at the same time you will only be able to watch those two channels on TV at the same time unless your TV has a separate tuner e.g. freeview. Upscaling of standard DVDs is noticeably good with very clear images. Very easy to play back recorded material as the films/programmes are listed in order of recording. I haven't read about or tried out all the features yet. It is possible to connect a VHS video player to the front of this machine, so we're looking forward to transferring family videos on to the hard drive, then on to a DVD. The machine will also pause live TV - great for when the phone rings or family members interrupt!!!. The machine looks great too. The music database is useful becuase it brings up track titles and information when a CD is playing, but I don't wish to have my TV screen on whilst listening to music. Perhaps I can attach some separate speakers later on which will avoid the need to use the TV speakers.Overall we are very pleased with the machine.
Bad points:
The price, but it does a lot for the money and is future proof. The DVD/CD tray is quite delicate. Having to have the TV screen on to play CDs.

Manufacturer's Description

High Definition DVD Recorder with HDD (250GB), Twin HD Satellite Tuner, SD Memory Card Slot and USB Terminal

Because the recorder is equipped with two HD digital tuners, two different TV programmes can be recorded simultaneously. There is no need to worry about missing out on recording a programme when two programmes overlap.

In DR mode, the DMR-XS350 can record digital broadcasts in Full-HD picture quality. They can also stream-record and output the 5.1 channel surround sound signals (Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus) contained in HD broadcasts. When connected to a 5.1 channel digital amp, the DMR-XS350 lets users enjoy outstanding surround sound while watching a TV program or playing back a recording.

These models are compatible with the VIERA CAST function, which allows you to access YouTube™, Picasa™, and other various contents. YouTube™ lets you watch the newest video clips, and Picasa™ lets you view Web-based photos. You can also check weather and stock information on other sites.

These DMR-XS350 is equipped with an SD Memory Card Slot and USB* terminals. You can immediately view motion images recorded with an High Defi nition (HD)/ Standard Defi nition (SD) camcorder in AVCHD/ MPEG2 format** and with the Lumix in AVCHD Lite and JPEG images.

Intelligent Auto Standby After watching and listening with the compatible recorders, the recorders automatically turn off when you return to the TV using the VIERA remote. 2009 VIERA TV Standby Power Save The recorders with Power Save function will turn on/off when TV is turned on/off.
