Excellent piece of machinery!

Created: 08/01/08
Having had Sony DVD recorder with built in Freeview, and being Sony fan for years, I was worried that Panasonic DMR-EX75 will be better or on par with Sony. I was so wrong to be worried about nothing.
Panny did all I wanted and even more. Remote for DMR-EX75 is great piece of equipment. It has everything on it and it is quite accessible. There is a lack of 2 buttons - DVD eject and OTR button. But, you do realize that you actually do not need those buttons on your remote.
Back to the main unit. Once I hooked it up with my TV (which is Sony you guess) it took few minutes to set itself up. No delays, no confusing operations and no funny messages. The intructions are so easy to follow. And I use Panny remote to control my TV as well. 160gb hard drive is enough for around 75 hours of stored high quality movies (that is approx 50 movies). I use default setting (SP) and it is great to watch. Still have around 50 hours to store. DVD is also impecable. There is no format that this DVD can play (apart from DIVX which I feel is a miss). Editing on RAM discs and also on hard drive is close to perfection. So easy to create chapters, delete parts of programmes, etc. One thing that Sony recorder had was automatic chaptering, but I can live without it. I also hooked up my Sony Playstation 2 to Panny. I could save non protected dvd on hard drive and I could swear that picture was much better on hard drive, as copy. Hard to believe I know, but true. Connectivity is also great - I recorded from my DV camcorder onto hard drive. Picture and sound was perfect.
I still didn't try HDMI (waiting to upgrade TV soon so I can try) but I expect no problems with that one as well.
So, I never regreted paying £170/180 via eBay for this item. I got much more than I paid for. I do feel that there should be a clock on front display and that this unit should play DIVX format and I would be also over the moon if there was a twin tuner - but, that is me being spoiled and demanding. For money that I paid it is 12 out of 10 for Panasonic DMR-EX75. Home Cinema Choice got it right again.

Decidedly average

Having put a lot of research into a DVD player/recorder with a hard drive, this one came out very well, in Which and Reevoo etc. I must admit this built my expectations- sadly too high it would seem.
Aside from the seller very 'kindly' leaving in a badly copied porn movie for my wife and 6 year old niece to find, the unit looked the business. It was very easy to set up, and very easy to record straight away onto the hard drive (once I had deleted the previous owners recordings - match of the day and yes, you guessed it, more porn, predominantly.)
However, my concerns are how noisy it is, the time it takes for it to warm up, the correctness of its egm - the guide was used to record a documentary, so I was a bit surprised to see the unit hadn't started recording when the program was already a good two minutes in - not impressed. Also the freeview tuner for the machine isn't anywhere near as sharp as the TV's own one, which seems odd.
Since we are about to have our first child, I thought it would be a good idea to have to record all of the programs we won't be able to watch now- (we are not allowed Sky or therefore sky plus in our block) and then catch up in the wee hours as we look after our delightful screaming bundle of joy (and poo).However, I wonder if the picture will be good enough, I'll probably be too tired to care, but overall, I am not overly impressed with this machine. Shame.

DMR-EX75 (160 GB) DVD Recorder / HDD Recorder

Created: 03/09/09
This machine is probably a bit long in the tooth by now but for various reasons, I have three of them! 'Brilliant' is the word that comes to mind. They are both analogue and Freeview, they have a large capacity hard drive recorder and they can record and play DVDs. They also have facility to 'Slideshow' pictures from an SD memory card. I use the DVD 'record' function primarily to copy from the hard drive when I have recorded something that I particularly want to keep.

Before I bought Panasonic, I tried other makes but none including Sony (unfortunately) were as easy and intuitive to use. The set-up, record and search menus are SO simple to use. I would expect the later models keep up this tradition.

It is possible to record on to the hard drive at the same time as watching something already recorded on it. It is not possible to record a Freeview channel and watch a different Freeview channel at the same time. (I find the best way around this is to have a separate Freeview receiver with built-in hard drive recorder - or of course a TV with built-in Freeview).

Does not do all you expect.

Created: 10/03/08
All of these systems that give an HD upgrade via HDMI do not work as well as they claim. There is a picture quality improvement but it is not as good as as Sky HD. The output on my Sony HD TV comes up at 576p, Sky HD is 1080i. But if you are going to buy one it definitely should be one with an HDMI output.

The set works as expected and has been reliable so far. It is a bit complicated to master all of its functions.

One gripe is that it has a slot on the front for an SD card, which is what I assume Panasonic cameras use. The USB port on my previous Philips DVD player was far more usefull.

Another gripe is that it only has one Freeview tuner, so you can only record one channel at a time.

Panasonic HDD recorders stop the hard drive when switched off most others such as Sony stay running and you always have a background whiring noise. This means it takes longer to start up after switch on, but overall is an advantage.

Panasonic DMR-EX75 (160 GB) DVD/HDD Recorder

Created: 05/04/10
Panasonic make some of the best DVD Recorders around and this model is absolutely no exception. I started out with a DMR-E55, upgraded to a DMR-ES10, then DMR-ES15 and now have this model. Each upgrade has seen an improvement in style and function. At under £130 second hand (and lots of people are selling them because they've upgraded to Sky+!), these are a bargain!

The beauty of the Pannies HAS to be the ability to time-slip using DVD-RAM: watch a programme you have already started to record while the programme finishes running on TV! DVD-RAM use also means that you can record a programme while playing back something previously recorded on disk. Don't listen to whingers that say DVD-RAM is expensive: less that a pound each on eBay (don't know if Costco still sell them?) and they can be re-used up to 100,000 times (no, I haven't reached that number yet, but that is Panny's claim)!

Picture quality is superb and you can choose to record onto either the HDD or DVD (+R, -R, +RW, -RW and RAM). By using the excellent editing functions (simple, intuitive and extensive), you can cut out all the intros and adverts from your recording on either the HDD or DVD-RAM. You can also use the Copy function (it even has a fast copy mode!) to burn your programme from the HDD onto your chosen permanent format; 'finalise' the disk and it's a permanent disk, playable on ANY DVD player, freeing up your HDD for more recordings!

I STRONGLY recommend these recorders to ANYONE that wants a good quality unit at a sensible price.
