A top quality Blu-ray player and fully networked digital set-top box all in one - the Panasonic DMRPWT550EB is a versatile performer.

4K UHD upscaling and 4K JPEG playback

With 4K UHD upscaling on both Blu-ray and hard drive, the DMR-PWT550EB makes the ideal partner for your 4K TV. Although not as good as native 4K, upscaling from Full HD gives superior detail and realism. Taking this even further, this Panasonic Blu-ray combi also offers 4K JPEG playback, giving you the ability to see your photos on the big screen in the highest quality possible.

3D playback including 2D to 3D conversion
As you'd expect from Panasonic, the DMRPWT550EB offers a detailed and natural picture quality. 3D compatibility lets you view 3D Blu-rays on your 3D TV, plus there's 2D-3D conversion. 2D-3D conversion allows you to watch any 2D material up-converted to glorious 3D.

New Freeview Play for easy access to catch up TV
Freeview Play combines catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television to make watching what you want, when you want as easy as possible. The service is free from subscription and compatible with existing broadband services. Services such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 are available without having to open specific applications, giving effortless scroll-back TV (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps).

UHD 4K video playback and archiving
With the ability to record 4K content (MP4) and playback 4K video recorded to USB, the DMRPWT550 makes the ideal companion for your 4K TV. If you've signed up to Netflix, you'll also be able to enjoy 4K playback via the built-in app.

Record up to 500GB of TV programmes in HD
Twin HD tuners mean that you can not only pause and rewind live TV but also record two different channels at the same time. What's more, with a 500GB built-in hard drive you can record up to 258 hours of programmes in SD or 129 hours of HD TV. In the unlikely event that you should run out of space then a separate USB-equipped hard drive can be connected up by USB and data transferred from one to the other.

Smart Networking
Connect to your home network via the built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can enjoy a wide range of Smart networking options. Choose from a wide selection of apps or use the web browser for easy access to the Internet. With DLNA compatibility you can also stream content from other devices on your network - perfect for accessing the videos you may have stored on your computer.

Remote Recording and viewing
Take control of recording, even when you're hundreds of miles from home with Remote Recording. Provided your device is connected to Broadband Internet, you'll be able to set recording functions remotely via your Smartphone or tablet. With Panasonic's TV Anywhere you can also stream recordings and live TV directly to your Smartphone or tablet (excludes BBC content). Now there's no excuse on missing out on your favourite programme!

Playback, record, stream and catch-up - it's all possible on the multi-tasking Panasonic DMRPWT550EB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This was to replace an outdated recorder/player and wish I had done it sooner. Very good value / product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Space-Saving All-In-One Unit So far, so good. Set up and working satisfactorily. Reason for being slightly cagey is that, for what it's worth, in my experience if there is one item of audio-visual kit that's going to malfunction, it's a PVR-type device. This one was bought to replace a Huweii YouView box that in turn was a replacement for a Humax that also failed - after about 2 years and 3 years, respectively - so maybe that is the life expectancy of these things at their present state of development. I'll be watching with interest to see how this one goes, but in the meantime I have taken the unusual step, for me, of buying a Richer sounds extended warranty. I tend to regard these as an unnecessary additional cost and a money-spinner for retailers, but in this case I am making an exception. If it goes wrong, it's going to be at somebody else's expense this time. I chose this model in part because I wanted to cut down on the number of separate items of equipment I had to set up and connect to achieve the functionality I wanted. We like to archive quite a lot of stuff, like whole drama series for example, so A PVR fits the bill, and although we don't view DVDs that often, it is still useful to own a player. I am still getting used to it, so don't want to be unfair, but it does seem to me to be a bit slower and clunkier than the previous models I have owned, as well as arguably more complicated and less intuitive. This is not unusual for Panasonic, I have found, and this is not confined to AV equipment. I do a fair bit of photography and have owned a couple of their cameras, which have a good, well-deserved reputation but suffer from the same drawbacks of hard to grasp menus and appallingly badly-written manuals, which is a bad combination. The handy blend of DVD player and PVR therefore comes at a cost, both in terms of purchase price and the degree of complexity. I am neither the world's worst or the world's best at coping with this sort of technology. I have it set up and running and can do most of what I want to do with it, but have on a few occasions, when programming it to record and so on, made mistakes that I would not have made with either of this machine's rather more straightforward and user-friendly predecessors, which has been frustrating. So, if you are someone who struggles a bit with this stuff, or you don't absolutely have to have a DVD/PVR all-in-one, I would consider buying a cheaper, simpler stand alone TV recorder for probably half the price or maybe even less. Otherwise, I would say it's not a bad buy: not great, but not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DVD recorder with a mulitude of great features. I have had this little gem for 10 days and have teamed it up with a Samsung 40 UHD TV. I am very pleased with it so far and after the odd one or two issues with it setting up( I admit mainly of my doing) It work very well and is a great combo with the TV. I like it's connectivity via Wi-Fi with other products and It really works well, good picture and records well, albeit a little long winded to set up the programming. However, the more I use it the easier it has become. Very Happy. Thank You Richer Sounds as you are a real star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-round media device I bought this to replace a Samsung model that was painfully slow navigating menus and crashed to often. The Panasonic is faster and doesn't crash. Features are good, particularly the integrated catch-up (that to a certain extent makes the record function obsolete!) Pros: faster menus, integrated catchup, silent operation Cons: while recording, much functionality is disabled; clunky advance/rewind functions; no ability to sort channels by name

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PVR/BR & Simple to set up I bought this PVR Recorder / BR Player as was all in one unit and save space. Although i may not use all the features such as Freeview play and catch up tv is a great product well upgraded from my old Hdd recorder. Purchased together with Panasonic TX40EX600B tv and so easy to set up together.
