Panasonic Diga DMR-ES10
Advantages: Good at reading damaged disks,wide variety of formats, easy to setup
Disadvantages: slow at startup, LCD display faulty
I must say that when I first went hunting for a dvd recorder I had high hopes: The idea that I could record my favorite programs direct to dvd and then possibly transfer them to my PC for further viewing inspired me greatly, so off I went to the UK's online market place: eBay! because they can be feverishly expensive and I wasn't looking to have to remortgage my house to get one! Well in the end I snagged this player for £20 including postage and was delighted with my purchase at such a low price.
My first impressions were that It was easy to setup: The TV was ready to be recorded off in minutes and I even hooked up my PS3 on a double scart lead to record my gameplay for my casual youtube use. But I soon began to realise that DVDs maybe were not the best media for recording. What I am trying to say is that while it recorded to DVD they don't hold much and so maybe were not for me, Bu that's not the players fault - it's a great player that included dvd longplay- something I didn't even know existed until then: It can cram roughly about 8 hours of video onto 1 dvd.
So you could say my first impressions were good, with a slight disappointment with the DVD format. The loading time is very slow - I do not recommend this player for watching dvds as it is so sluggish in startup. But that was never a big worry for me. It plays dvds other players couldn't read and has that all important time for when you are out. I also noticed the LCD display faded slightly on one side but again no worries on my side. All in all this is a recommended buy if you can get it for the same price that I did, but I now recommend a hard drive player/recorder: times have changed a hardrive recorder is faster more reliable and easier to transfer, but this is still a great player.
Summary: Great product but may now be outdated
