Fairly easy to use, considering all the functionality.

Display of the TV Guide not brilliant. To use all the functions requires time and patience, although basic use of DVD, HDD and VHS pretty straightforward.

Christine, Penshaw Expect good quality

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I've an older Panansonic VHS/DVD and bought the newer version becuase I loved the older version so much. The new model, with improved features, was bought for the main room. The older VHS/DVD is still working well in another room and hasn't let me down. Smart, nice to look at and very,very easy to use and has all the features I want. I've had other VHS/DVD's in the past but none have come close to matching the Panasonic. I've never bought the same model of anything twice ( Washer, TV etc) I've always tried different manufacturers just in case I was missing out but the Panasonic VHS/DVD ticks all the boxes and I can't imagine straying away from Panasonic now - I'm hooked!
Bad points:
None that I've found and I bought it because the older version had no bad points that I could find.

Manufacturer's Description

Panasonic has developed the DMR-EX98V 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 colour 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-EX98V is more advanced. Auto Preset Download does away with the need to make channel and other initial the DMR-EX98V 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-EX98V 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-EX98V into a virtual jukebox. It supports gracenote®, in short, the DMR-EX98V 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-EX98V 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 movie software. Even with music containing a wide range of tones, such as orchestral performances, the sound of individual instruments are beautifully reproduced.
