Some customer reviews of Panasonic DMR-EX87

Most helpful reviews

Pegwell, Ramsgate

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
reliable and simple operation
Bad points:
'chunky' menu selections - some not obvious even with handbook assistance.
Handbook could have been more end user friendly.
Still NO disc eject facility from remote control.
Hard drive NOT protected from accidental total erasure - particularly when in edit function [most annoying of all ]needs firmware update to solve this problem
Other features such as 'Remaining disc time' are now only shown on-screen,and not on lcd display -not ideal for remote setting or viewing
Ergonomic engineering has never been a strong point of panasonic dvd-recorders,nor do they acknowledge customer feedback Rate them 1 out of 10 for that.
Final comment - do not expect a comfortable experienc with this machine - Unless it is located within an arms reach!!!

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good picture. Upscales to 1080p.
Remote will control most TVs. Has DVI and an SD slot, but can only copy video FROM the SD.
Bad points:
No analog tuner.
Rear panel S-Video input has been deleted from this model.
Will neither receive nor recoed HD from freeview (when it happens)
Clunky menu means when you start to fill the disc it takes an age to locate a program.
you can't really use the eco standby option.
Converting to multi-region is expensive, requiring a special remote to send codes, and when it is done to play an NTSC disc requires you to go through a series of menus to select NTSC, then after watching you have to change back to PAL, or it won't record anything. (And the HDMI output resets to 720 when you go from PAL to NTSC or back) I would forget region 1 discs, and keep a dedicated player as well.
No analog tuner
