  Started off great - but .....

| | See all february1964's reviews (1)

I purchased this as wanted to be able to record from freeview. Very east to use - but I thought I would be able to watch one station while recording another - you can't it doesn't have dual channels, but that ws my fault for not reading it properly. Had great reception when I first used it - bt it seems to be deteriorating - is this my area or the machine?? The DVD-RAM is a great idea to chase back recordings and they aren't that expensive. All in all a good purchase.

  Reasonable value for money but limited functionality.

I bought this recorder as for the price it had free view built in, offered up scaling for better picture quality, had excellent 5 star reviews and allegedly works with a wide range of formats. It ticked most of the boxes but you only get full editing functionality with DVD-RAM discs and up to now I have discovered only Panasonic's own discs work. As these are not widely available and are expensive compared to the other formats I am very disappointed. Panasonic should make this clear in their advertising and even in the instruction manual they disguise the fact that you can only fully edit on their own discs. If you are happy with a recorder for just "time shifting" TV programmes this may be the machine for you but otherwise I would give it a miss.

This product is wonderful, once you get used to it. It's everything other reviewers have said. My only gripe is a lack of info vis; there is no analogue tuner so if you are on the fringe of digital signals, you can't record. Nowhere does it say this in the makers write up,you only find out when you receive it. Play.com, please note!

Very good value for money, easy to set up and very easy to use. Connected to tv thru hdmi and scart to sky+ picture does improve but not as good as hd does. I recommend this dvd recorder to anyone who is after one.

I've had the Panasonic EZ27 for a week now and i'm well pleased with it. Definitely worth having the HDMI output option as it really does give a great picture when you connect it to a HD tv using a HDMI cable. Found it easy enough to use, mainly cos recording a programme is just a matter of finding it in the EPG (tv guide) and pressing 'ok'. would definitely recommend getting some DVD-RAM discs as they are faster to read and more versatile (you can delete parts of a recording, eg. adverts and you can watch a recording from a disc at the same time as recording something else). the freeview tuner responds quickly though the EPG can look a bit unattractive with its blocks of primary colours. overall, so far so good.

very good vfm. set up with a sky hd box and 40" samsung 1080 lcd it's a brilliant combo. like most recorders there is audible clunking between scenes and whilst checking data but the upscaled picture is amazing. it's just got a what hifi sound and vision award for 2007's best dvd recorder under £250. very easy to set up and in best quality record mode, hd broadcasts are just the same as they were broadcast. no hdmi cable is included so you need to spend a bit to get best results
