Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good picture and reception. Large memory. Easy to record with guide plus. You can watch a previous recording while recording another programme. Chose this brand mainly to use the HDD & would definitely buy a panasonic again.
Bad points:
Instructions too complicated and confusing. Recording to DVD not as good as HDD & picture doesn't fill TV screen. Expected to be able to burn HDD recordings onto DVD quickly but you have to play the whole HDD recording to copy.

Manufacturer's Description

DVD Recorder with HDD (400GB) and Digital Tuner and SD Memory Card Slot and USB Terminal

Panasonic has developed the DMR-EX88 with even higher image quality. Picture quality is better. DVB-T Adaptive Noise Reduction detects and removes the block noise that often occurs in digital broadcasts, to produce beautiful images with minimal noise. And the enhanced quality of 1080p Up-Conversion and rich color gradation of Deep Colour compatibility are seen in deeper, higher-resolution images. The Diagonal Processing automatically detects diagonal lines in motion images, and converts them to sharp lines.

The new VIERA Link function of the DMR-EX88 is more advanced. Auto Preset Download does away with the need to make channel and other initial the DMR-EX88 settings. Direct TV Rec. lets the user start recording the TV program that is currently being watched by simply pressing the VIERA Link button on the VIERA remote and selecting Direct TV Rec. Pause Live TV pauses a TV program with the same ease as pausing a DVD disc. The rest of the program can then be watched at a later time, right from the point where it was paused.

The DMR-EX88 is equipped with a USB terminal and an SD card slot, so images from a digital still camera can be easily transferred. A large-capacity hard disk drive lets users store music data and turns the DMR-EX88 into a virtual jukebox. It supports gracenote®, in short, the DMR-EX88 goes far beyond the point of easy video entertainment to function as a personal digital media server.

To enjoy viewing movies recorded on an SD Memory Card, simply copy the MPEG2 Movie data to the hard disk drive or DVD-RAM and then play back. also the DMR-EX88 automatically recognizes images that you’ve uploaded from SD Memory Card.

In the SP mode recording, 384Kbps high sound quality recording provides audio quality approaching that of commercially available the DMR-EX88 movie software. Even with music containing a wide range of tones, such as orchestral performances, the sound of individual instruments are beautifully reproduced.
