I purchased this as a backup to my DMR-EH50 (which had a hard drive, but no longer made). Other than not having a 100GB hard drive, it has some differences, ie. limited editing and title entry. Otherwise records to DVD-R or rewriteable RAM discs, where either media are far superior to VHS tapes of old in cost, function, and lifetime durability. No longer available from Panasonic online store may be a sign of get one while you still can. Note that my DMR-EH50 still works fine, and has been a work horse.

I use this item daily- to watch dvd's. Sure, you can record home videos but if you try to record a movie off the tv, it won't let you even though it has a tv tuner. On top of that its slow to load and if you press any button on the remote more than once in a few seconds it makes the player go into error mode so you have to turn it off then back on again. If you need to burn home movies, just use your computer don't waste your money on this thing.

Great Place to Buy
By Mama B
from Allentown, PA
I already owned 2 of these DVD recorders and needed to replace a first generation Panasonic DVD recorder. Having like models in various rooms allows me to record certain TV shows and watch them anywhere without finalizing the disc. I just delete the show after I've watched it. The RAM discs are pricey, but they last a long time for re-recording and their quality and recording length are good.
Service and delivery comments:
ABT had the lowest price I had seen, lower than what I previously paid for my other 2 units. Their site is easy to navigate. Free Shipping is always a plus and the item was delivered quickly. It arrived on the specified date in excellent condition.

About Me Casual User
My wife uses this recorder to record her soaps and takes them to work to play on our portable player. we use dvd-rw so she can use them over and over. You must use -rw and format the disc before you can record on the disc again. Also you have to finalize before you can play the disc on another player. It works great.

We use the recorder predominantly to record TV progams and replay them. It works very well for our needs. In the future we will use the SD port.L and M
Great DVD recorder!
from Chicago Suburbs
It was important for me that this DVD unit had a tuner. Most don't. I use it to record television shows when I am not at home. It is really easy to set up and use. As I did those things I literally thought to myself that "they thought of everything". One thing that I feel DVD manufacterers should try to do is, figure out how to format only the part of the DVD where I deleted a program. It seems that when I format a DVD I have to format the whole thing. There by losing all recorded TV programs on that DVD.

[...] I discovered from a different source, that DVD-ROM is the only disc that records in wide screen. [...]
