5.0 out of 5 stars Considered a few manufacturers and models. Chose I believe the best, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMR-EX86EB DVD Recorder with 320GB HDD and Freeview Plus (Electronics)
Replacement for a previous model which died after a good may years. Pleased to find all of the functions still as was plus a few very useful new features. Easy to use and attractive arrangement of controls. Would happily recommend unreservedly to anyone.

Hi John
I am looking for a replacement model for my Mum and was hoping you could help with a small query, if you please? I was wondering if you were able to record onto the HDD and then dub it onto DVD afterwards, should you want to keep the film permanently and separately from the drive?
Many thanks
Sarah

You can do this, Sarah, but I recommend you also 'finalise' the DVD disc if you don't want to lose the recording or wish to play it on another machine when this one eventually stops working. I have a fine collection of films and music that I recorded on my old JVC machine but never finalised. They are now unuseable. Learn from the master!

Wish you had said which model as I swear by the Panasonic and have 4 DMR-EX77 and 2 DMR-EX83 but
faltered after quite a long time now and the 83 has increased in price considerably so looking at this EX86.
Just a bit dubious.

I have had the misfortune to buy a second Panasonic DVD/HDD recorder.
The first packed up after a few years', the DVD part 'died',
This replacement, bought in April, has a problem with the button to open the disc tray- it switches the unit off!
No help from Panasonic, no reply from Amazon who sold it to me.
I strongly recommend everyone to avoid this junk!
