Paul, fleet Never give up,tryer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great recorder but you need a degree in science to get to know how to work it . I really think the manual is designed to bafffle you ,when you know how its really quite easy . Lots of cursing and what the f have I gone and bought here going on until the penny dropped , all great now . Hope thats informative enough , I expect there are lots of people who are more adept than me for working electronics than me out there all the best Paul
Bad points:
The manual could be esier to follow I am not familiar with most of the terms and phrases used .

Steve, London Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Product capabilities, connectivity, ease of use, sleek design, integration with Panasonic TV (but see below)
Bad points:
1. Does not seem to fully integrate wth Panasonic TV - still need two remote control units.
2. Can be slow to operate - takes the unit a while to warm up before you can watch TV - you need to swithc on a couple of mins befor a programme starts.
3. Instruction book is rather impenetrable, a quick guide for common operations in colour on an A3 paper with a flow-chart to follow would make a real difference.
4. You can use it for u-tube but not for i-player which is a dissapointment.
(note some of the above may be due to our inability to set-up of the machine - overall this is a great bit of kit and I recommend it)

Fiona, Southampton Film lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, easy to use, my previous dvd recorder was Panasonic and the instructions for use are similar. Only had it for a short time so can only comment on basic record and playback, havn't recorded onto disc yet but from past experience Panasonic equipment has been excellent. Very good price comparably.
Bad points:
Case is a bit plastic and the layout of TV guide and recorded programes not so easy on the eye as my older machine but maybe there is a choice of layout.
