Stephen, Burton upon Stather & Manchester Music listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
ideal for burning dvds for future use; fro copying any old videos before they totally fade; able to watch tv staions while recording; in all perfect way of keeping hard copies for future usage.
Bad points:
no doubt tecnology will take over all this at one stage but technolg fails and dvds can last a lifetime.

Manufacturer's Description

Never miss a programme again with the Panasonic DMR-EX86EB. You can record to DVD or hard drive while enjoying the best of Freeview. This recorder will also upscale standard definition content to 1080p HD, letting you enjoy those old favourites from your DVD collection in more detail.

Key benefits:
Enjoy the latest movies in immersive Full HD 3D. Stunning 1080p playback means you won’t miss a single detail while 3D adds a new dimension to the action.

With 320GB of storage, you can store hours of content. Combined with Freeview+ you can put timetable clashes behind you and watch what you want, when you want.

Automatic chapter creation ‘listens’ for breaks in the action during recordings. This lets you pick up where you left off without hunting through hours of media.

HD upscaling pushes your DVD collection to near-Full HD quality, breathing new life into old favourites.

Intelligent auto standby saves on bills by switching the recorder off when you switch back to watching TV. Includes remote control and batteries
