Panasonic DMR-E95HS review

 

Intro Long a leader in the consumer DVD-recording arena, Panasonic has added more functions and features to its models with each passing year. But of all the myriad capabilities of the company's DMR-E95HS, a combination DVD/hard disk recorder, the...

Hard-disk/DVD combo recorder with huge storage capacity; cable-box control; free TV Guide programming guide; Flexible Recording mode; FireWire, SD, and PCMCIA inputs.

Programming guide isn't compatible with satellite or digital cable; nonintuitive user interface; soft recording quality in EP mode.

The impressive feature set of Panasonic's high-end combo recorder doesn't overcome some basic shortfalls.

Panasonic DMR-E95H DVR/DVD Recorder

 

I have a confession to make: I never took umbrage with having to set the clock on a VCR. I set my own. I set my mother's. I was even known to sneak into my friends' homes and set theirs while they slept, taking joy in the knowledge that their VCR could...

buy the extended over-the-counter warranty!

 

2 weeks before my warranty expired, infrequent crashes turned into twice-a-day crashes. The U99 code and 'self check' mean it's not recording OR playing anything until you cycle the power... and other times it would completely lose the TV Guide...

No monthly fees, TV Guide service is free.Lots of recording capacity, very fast fast-forwarding.

The most un-caring Customer Care department ever.No keyword searches for movie or show titles.

Panasonic DMR-E95HS (160 GB) DVD Recorder

 

Good quality picture, intuitive interface, playlist capability

Terrible customer support, buggy TV Guide, lack of hard disk de-fragmenting routine, other bugs.

Bugs w/ terrible customer support sink the DMR-E95H

 

Had initial problems but then worked alright for maybe 2 mos. Then suddenly, stored playlists no longer worked and froze the machine if one tried to use them. The TV Guide settings with its tedious-to-customize channel lineup got wiped out...

This thing is just great.

 

What I was looking for in this machine was not a "TV show archivator" but a "back-end device" for my camcorder. The latter is a good old (7 years!) Hi8XR Sony, technically an S-VHS VCR was good enough for it, and JVC HR-S7600 proved to be an excellent ...

Extremely convenient and flexible for video recording/editing/copying to DVD. Outstanding quality of picture and sound.

Some minor inconveniences while recording/editing... still, a perfect machine.
