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 4 out of 5 by from Features Perfect replacement for previous model (beyond repair) recording progs, music and playing cds, very pleased. One small criticism like so many electrical products the instructions could be alot simpler and easier to understand. Cant work out whether its a translation prob or that the author assumes we are all on their level. Still very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and easy to use. DVD players which can record onto a blank disc are increasingly hard to find, so I had no hesitation in buying the Panasonic. Although I only opted for the standard delivery service it arrived within 24 hours of ordering. I did opt for the 6 year warranty which at only £24.90 was a no-brainer. Installation was easy, and the remote control did not interfere with the operation of my other Panasonic equipment. The machine is easy to use, but if you want any TV programs preserved on blank discs they have first to be recorded onto the HDD and then copied. My old machine recorded direct onto blank discs, but this they call progress. If you want the recording features which this product offers, buy one now before it follows the VHS recorder into extinction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does all that it says it would do. Particularly pleased to record two TV programmes at the same time.Great improvement on my previous 10 year old Panasonic machine

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Choice of 1 I bought this to replace a very similar previous Panasonic machine. It's a choice of one because it's the only DVD/HDD recorder with twin Freeview HD tuners on the market. I've even ordered another one from Amazon as I do a lot of burning of DVD's from the hard drive and don't want to be without one in the future. The machine has it's faults but these are only niggles and won't bother you unless you're one of those people who are only satisfied if the machine exactly fits your personal preferences right down to the last detail.
