But, as recommended by Panasonic, and other reviewers, you only get the best out of the Panasonic machines by using RAM disks. I bought these from Comet - after trying many other stores - for only £9.99 for 5.
They really transorm use of the recorder - effectively giving you a (small) hard disk drive, that can be used for editing (eg removing commercials) and Timeslip (i.e. watching the beginning of a program while still recording the end - HOW???) - both very useful.
The 9.4GB RAM disks are only double sided versions of this type - and they must (it seems) be manually turned over (like an old-fashioned LP!), so no great advantage, compared with using 2 of these (4.7 GB) disks, instead. (More chance of losing valuable recordings if double sided, and more confusing, too..)
So I would highly recommend this product - with two small caveats:
1. Capacity not huge - 4 hrs recording time in LP is actually worse than VHS, tho' quality is probably better, and much easier/faster to find your programs.
2. RAM disks will NOT play in the vast majority of ordinary DVDs - so you need another Panasonic (or similar model from Toshiba, etc) if you want to watch your recordings in the bedroom, for instance.
Hope this review is useful to you.
This format is ideal for VHS replacement. Once you have inserted a RAM disc into a recorder it is ready, where as other formats require initialising, formating, etc.. Obviously depending on recorder and format this can vary, but I have to say the RAM's are awsome, I use to be a critic of this format before, but perhaps there still some mileage in this format.
The price is also a bonus, one of the cheapest I have seen. Nice one.
DVD player/recorder that uses DVD-RAM technology. But what I will say is that this type of disc is in my opinion 10 times better than any of the basic format DVD recordable discs (DVD-R DVD+R DVD-RW DVD+RW) I can only comment about my recorder which has a built in hard disk drive and the the transfer speeds from one to the other is excellent 1 hour recording transfers or burns to DVD in approx 8 minutes. play back function has 5 speeds backward and forward instead of 3. Full edit function allows removal of bits you don't want on ,say, a wedding video/Dvd ,adverts etc. Don't buy these for a normal DVD player ! As this type of recorder plays and records all of the formats as well as DVD/RAM I would recommend buying a DVD/RAM capable recorder when you next change your machine, or if you want to upgrade to a far better system. Downside to consider DVD/RAM discs are far more expensive to buy! But how many DVD's do you burn to keep in a year?
