Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMR-EX99VEBK 250GB HDD DVD/VHS Recorder with Freeview+ (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've had this for more than a year now, I use it alot and I love it.
I use it to record programmes directly from the ariel but also, more often, if I want to permanently keep programmes I've initially recorded to my TiVo box, I copy them to this device and then, after editing out the adverts, I copy to DVD.
The ability to do partial delete (to edit out adverts and the bit before and after the programme) is fantastic, and with some practice you can be accurate to a single frame!
Transferring items on the hard drive to DVD takes very little time although slightly longer than the 3 minutes it states. I'd say more like 10 minutes for a film. But that is still very quick!
I've even been able to copy programmes from iPlayer occasionally, although usually software on the iPlayer prevents this.
It works with VHS as well, although I haven't used it a great deal for this and it can also used SD cards, which I haven't tried at all - but I really should try so I can update this review.
If you are considering purchasing this device, I can thoroughly recommend it.
