5.0 out of 5 stars Recording machine that can do almost anything, 3 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMR-EZ49vEBK Super Multi Format Combi Recorder with Freeview (Electronics)
The VHS on my previous EZ45 wouldn't work - and there were various other repairs needed and the freeview stopped producing a good picture, so I decided to upgrade to this model.
It's basically the same model with UsB added - though I haven't explored everything yet. Like the older machine I can easily transfer VHS tapes to DVD and record from my camcorder via the S-video [and there are other inputs too]- though, make no mistake it's a complicated gadget when you want to get the best out of it, and it takes time to work out what all the remote buttons do.
Freeview sets up easily though the programme guide display has a big empty box on the left reducing the width. [Since the unit updated itself I now know that it is a dedicated advertisement slot and you can't get rid of it! MOST ANNOYING!]
I'm glad to have a fully functioning machine once again and have no hesitation in recommending it.

That's right as I said in my comment to Mr Barry it copies VHS to DVD and vice versa. Though VHS isn't always wanted now. Anyway my machine is still going strong and I use it regularly even though I record and delete a lot from my Sky Box. Also I haven't found any picture freezing on DVD transfers as I occasionally did on the old machine.

Is this machine reliable? I have just about given up on Toshiba.

I have had no trouble with it at all in the 2 years I've had it. Occasionally a DVDrw gets overused and you have to change it when the machine says there may be a problem recording after recording and deleting too may times.

Of course I always use new DVDs R or RW for permanent copies that are going to be formatted to play on any DVD machine or computer.
