5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted with excellent piece of kit, 26 Mar 2010

This review is from: Panasonic DMR-XS350EBK HD Twin Freesat Tuners 250GB HDD DVD Recorder - Installation Recommended (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought one of these as we were suffering from black-box overload under the TV and I wanted something that could do everything, so with one fell swoop it replaced the VCR used for videoing TV, the DVD player and the satellite box. I was slightly put off by the other reviews talking about how slow the menu / operating system was, but in my view you'd have to be seriously impatient for that to be a major problem - yes screens and menus don't change instantly, but the short delay was nothing like as bad as I feared from some of the comments below. Image quality is good, on playback DVD, HDD and I'm sure the satellite image is crisper too. Only disappointment is audio which is certainly not good enough to replace my standalone CD-player, but more than adequate for TV and film. Was a plug and play from our previous (FreeSky) installation and in operation is so simple that my better half (who is a self-professed technotard) is already using it confidently. Looks like copying to DVD will be slightly fiddly, but for the price I am absolutely delighted with it.
