  • Record your Favorite Programs with the Panasonic DMR-EH55S!

    Dec 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Upgrades standard video to high definition.
    Cons: Programmable remote doesn't work with all components.

    Summary: The Panasonic DMR-EH55S records television programs onto a hard drive for viewing and for writing onto a DVD to keep forever. Not only does it record in an almost perfect DVD format, but it can also convert video to high definition playback. The unit ... read more

  • Great for transferring video to DVD

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Does a great job converting tape to DVD- best on the market.
    Cons: Poorly written manual. Don't expect to be able to 'time shift' in today's digital world.

    Summary: In today's digital TV world I could not recommend the unit to time shift programs. But that's not what I bought my first Panasonic DMR unit for anyway. I use the units strictly for converting video tape- both digital and analog, to DVD. This requires the ... read more

  • No!! Stop and desist! Don't even think about it!

    Pros: Convenient. Made good DVDs. Not heavy (for taking it back for repair...)
    Cons: Unreliable. Died after 18 months. Couldn't make 16:9 DVDs. Not good.

    Summary: My version of the EH55 came with a 160GB hard drive, and with a few caveats I was very happy with it. The picture was as good as the reviews I had seen (this was in the days before High Definition, of course). Nothing prepared me, though, for the ... read more

  • Expensive

    Pros: Easy to set recordings. Plenty of disc space.
    Cons: Expensive.

    Summary: I have owned the DMR-EH55-S (S=Silver) for 11 months now. This being my first DVR, I did not think it was worth the $450 that I had paid. Boy, I was wrong. This DVR has completing changed by viewing experience. For my setup, I have the EH55 connected ... read more

  • More than pleasantly surprised by the DMR-EH55

    Apr 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Complete - works out of the box - really functional
    Cons: Price - and as with other multipurpose items, you need to follow the instructions

    Summary: The Panasonic recorder really does an excellent all-round job. My configuration is a flat panel plasma without a cable box. I use the TV Guide ON SCREEN constantly to both select channels, search for programs, and record both indivudal and repeat shows. ... read more

  • It records on DVD's, & the internal hard drive!

    Jan 4, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many features, small in size and upconverts to a high definition TV!
    Cons: Not really inexpensive at about $450, and lacks good documentation!

    Summary: I must admit, that after owning a Philips DVD recorder, that this Panasonic is a real pleasure! Of course an old brick would have been better than my old Philips. It was broken more times than I used it. Finally I chucked it and decided to purchase a ... read more

  • Does What It Says On The Box

    Jun 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Works well, easy to use, essential part of my entertainment system. Well done Panasonic.
    Cons: Confusing manual. Needs XP to work best. Cost of DL discs. Editing takes time.

    Summary: I got this machine about a month ago, and I have put it to sporadic use since then. I have used about half the hard drive space, and recorded 15 DVDs of TV programs and movies. I don't have cable, and my reception is best on only two channels out of ... read more

  • Very Nice DVD Recorder, But Expensive...

    Rated Show
    Pros: Recording to the hard drive then doing a high speed dump to a DVD-R.
    Cons: Only one the price.

    Summary: An excellent DVD recorder, like a TIVo without the monthly fee. The only drawback is its price, even compared to similar Panasonic units without the hard drive. What really sets this unit apart is its hard drive (HD). You can record a huge amount ... read more

    Pros: TV GUIDE ON SCREEN
    Cons: NONE (MAYBE OWNERS MANUAL)

    Summary: THIS MACHINE IS FANTASTIC AND WORTH EVERY PENNY. I HAD A PIONEER WITH AN 80 GIG HARD DRIVE THAT I LIKED A LOT AND THIS BLOWS THAT ONE AWAY. THE TV GUIDE ON SCREEN IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL AND WORKS PERFECTLY IN MY AREA THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE A LITTLE ... read more

    Pros: excellent picture quality, great compatibility
