With the flexibility to record Freeview HD TV onto DVD or its HDD hard drive, the Panasonic DMREX97 is a versatile recorder.

Universal DVD recorder

The Panasonic DMREX97 is a flexible DVD recorder that not only plays back a huge variety of discs but also records on all the DVD formats. The recorder is compatible with both single and dual layer (DL) DVD-R and DVD+R formats. It will also record on the re-recordable DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs or even using the rare DVD-RAM system.

HDD hard drive back-up
Backing up the universal disc recording ability is the built-in 500GB hard drive. Using the extended recording EP mode, this allows for up to 860 hours of recording - enough to cover months away from home! Even using the highest quality HG mode, the Panasonic manages an impressive 78 hours of recording.

Twin tuners for ultimate versatility
Twin tuners give the Panasonic DMR-EX97 fantastic versatility. With both tuners compatible with Freeview HD, you can record two HD programmes simultaneously. This means there's no need to worry about two programmes overlapping. Alternatively, you can watch one programme whilst recording another - even if you're watching on a monitor or projector without its own built-in TV tuner.

TV Series Recording function
Use the TV Series Recording function to automatically record a TV series each time it's broadcast. This takes the hassle out of recording individual episodes and, unlike catch-up TV sites, you can watch the programme again at any time and not just within 30 days.

Quick, easy operation
Panasonic has focused on the user experience of DVDRs to make the DMR-EX97 a far more pleasant recorder to use. With 'Triple 1-Sec Easy Operation', the tray draw, Electronic Programme Guide and Video Menu all operate within an instant.

Whether it's to archive your recording collection or just to record day-to-day TV, the Panasonic DMREX97 delivers the highest quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good recorder Quite easy to use and no doubt lots of features which I have yet to discover!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just short of a five star rating. I wish I had purchased this machine when it first became available. The ability to record two programmes simultaniously together with the ease with which the player is set up and operated make it almost all I could hope for. It would have received five stars from me if it was a multi region player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I bought this to replace a previous Panasonic recorder to complement the new 4K TV. I am still learning but so far am very pleased with the product. I like being able to record two programmes at once and when viewing is interrupted I can always return to where I left off! Only downside is the parental controls which I cannot seem to get rid of despite never needing them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic DVD recorder I bought this unit about a month ago and I am delighted with its performance. the picture through the unit is superb as is the recording and other aspects of its performance

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good, but limited My 2 household DVD recorders are approaching replacement time and the availability of this form of recording is now very limited as nobody seems to want to store recordings on DVD these days This recorder is excellent, especially as it will read from and record to DVD-RAM discs, but it is severely lacking in inputs. There is a TV aerial input and a USB input for digital cameras, but no SCART or HDMI inputs for recording from external devices such as satellite receivers or CCTV cameras. This input problem is the reason I've only given it 3 stars. What it does it does very well, but it could do so much more with just a couple of input sockets. I would recommend it to a friend simply because it is one of the last of a dying breed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from record to hardrive or copy to disc. Replaced the previous model with disc drive only which gave good service for 11 years. Controls are much the same, but with twin tuners can do more now, by recording two programs at the same time while watching a third, or a complete series automatically to massive hard drive and retain favourites to disc.
