great picture and sound, remote could be better
from cape elizabeth, maine
Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Recorder And VHS Combo Player:
For the most part i really like this unit, it is a panasonc, the picture and sound quality are really amazing for both dvds and tv broadcast. Some minor cons are: For watching a DVD the remote buttons are may be quite confusing for anyone who hasn't read the manual, because the "Sub Menu" button takes you to the control panel for the unit's internal settings. The "Direct Navigator" button is the one to press to get to the main menu of a DVD. No other dvd deck, including my other more basic Panasonic dvd player has a "Direct Navigator" button for that purpose. It sometimes takes a second for the tuner to find the next channel when watching tv, though i think that may be because it is a digital and analog tuner. On a more minor note, It is disappointing that you don't have the option of recording a digital broadcast channel to a vhs tape. (yes i know dvd's are better) The deck is clearly capable of converting digital to analog, otherwise it wouldn't have the capability of transferring digital dvd's to analog vhs tape.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for the money
from Batavia, OH
Just bought this a few weeks ago and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new VCR or just a DVD recorder. For the price, the value is outstanding and far exceeds expectations. When it is running, it is extremely quiet and you barely notice a DVD or tape playing.

Use to record TV shows and to transfer VHS tapes to DVD's. Everything about the machine is great, except for the time it takes to start up.

DVDs are incredible
Pros: 1. DVD quailty using an HDMI cable to upconvert to 1080p on our 50in Plasma looks perfect. 2. Near silent operation 3. copied DVD from VHS also upconverts. 4. Very affordable Cons: 1. Manual is vague. 2. know way to tell that its actually upconverting to 1080p. 3. no sleep timer. 4. if you set the TVs sleep timer and are watching a VHS when the tape rewinds it starts over and turns the tv back on. 5. Firmware updates are not there. 6. sometimes the remote and or panel become non responsive, you have to power off the unit by unplugging to reset.

One of my best purchases
from North Liberty. IN
This product is amazing. I am addicted to Panasonic quality anyway, having used a Panasonic VCR for several years with no repairs necessary - but I have really enjoyed using this new VCR to DVD recorder. I had some old VCR tapes of family events that I have converted to DVD's. I have shared them with family members and received comments - like - "this is the best gift I have ever received" and these DVD's are "priceless". I heartily recommend this product.
Great DVD Recorder!

I purchased this product primarily to transfer VHS to DVD. It is very easy to use for this purpose - essentially a single push of a button is all that is needed. In addition, I am using it to playback DVD's onto a 50" Pioneer Plasma screen via HDMI -- the interface and the remote are easy - direct and there is good functionality and the automatic detection features (for display size wide screen etc..) are very convenient. I recommend this product - particularly for the money.
