Panasonic DMR-BS850 review

 

Blu-ray recorders are big news in Japan, and now they're in the UK. So what do we make of the Freesat-enabled DMR-BS850?

Amazingly versatile ; Superb BD record quality ; Twin Freesat tuners ; Viera Cast internet access

Requires broadcasters to play ball ; AVCHD dubs to DVD in SD

The first Blu-ray recorder in the UK, it incorporates dual Freesat tuners, BD Live and 'net access, but test results are a mixed bag: We noted unimpressive audio and video jitter (like the BD60) but generally good hi-def video performance

Panasonic DMR-BS850 review

 

If Panasonic gets its way, this will be the ‘one box to rule them all' in the front room of the future. The DMR-BS850 is the first box to hit the UK that combines a Freesat+ PVR with a Blu-ray player/recorder. That's right, not just a 500GB hard disk...
