Panasonic DMR-BWT850 : i am really pleased with my new blu ray/ dvd recorder it ‘s

I am really pleased with my new blu ray/ dvd recorder it ‘s packed with features , and it connected to the internet straight away it’s an all in one entertainment system well done panasonic fantastic .

At first i couldn’t connect to the internet but by adding a bt wifi hotspot kit it’s perfect.

Beware though check you’re going for the freeview play model,no optical connection for surround sound or dts ,strangely missing.

I decided to buy this recorder as it is similar to the one i have and i realised that is getting difficult to get dvd recorder. This one is more or less the same as my present panasonic but with more feature such as any region, price hdd drive, 7 day catch up and more, double the price of my old one but i am glad i bought it.

This is an upgrade of previous models of the same type. It has some enhanced features, such as you can now stream on the net whilst it records tv shows (which previous models could not do). But generally it contains the same interface design, not the most attractive compared to some other dvrs, but the fact this is a panasonic very good quality machine compensates for this. My bwt 720 from 5 years ago is still working fine. But the biggest disappointment with this model is that they have removed the change programme type feature. It was vital when recording from a dvd to the hdd, so you could allocate your recording on the hdd a genre. Now your recording is lost in a sea of recordings. Also it does not seem to remember the stopping point on a dvd when you move between the hdd menu and the dvd player. This was not the case on my older model.

Excellent options of dual channel recording plus blu-ray. Also records to panosonic ram.

I had a 3 year old sony hdd box that was proving unreliable for switching on for recordings along with the screen suddenly going blank while watching programmes. Our television only has 2 hdmi points so both in use requiring needing to swap the hdmi’s to watch from the blue-ray player. The panasonic dmr-bwt850 arrived within 2 days of ordering and so far has proved to be reliable with recording and watching playback since receiving it. It’s also resolved the problem of needing to swap the hdmi plugs to watch blue-ray with it containing a blue-ray player.

Bought this item from ‘magicdiscounts’. Delivery was very quick, and the item itself is very good. Notable features are the multiregion dvd capability, which is getting rare to purchase, and works perfectly with my non-european dvds. Also, the operating noise of the machine is near-silent, which is a blessing after my previous hoover-like 2012 panasonic machine.

Great product if you want to archive your recordings. Supplier was very good in resolving a small issue. I’d definitely recommend the product and supplier.

As usual for panasonic,a perfect machine.

This is a review for the pictured model – the latest (c2015) panasonic dmr-bwt850 smart 3d 1tb hdd/blu-ray/dvd recorder with freeview play. I say that since, at the time of writing, amazon themselves (and others) sell this unit on another page but the details for the product are somewhat lacking – they haven’t even stated the model number in the title . However, you can see/confirm the product in the ‘product details’ section or by looking/zooming at the product photos as the model number is on the facia of the machine. [this is also important as some of the reviews on that page are clearly for a different machine, as criticisms of it are incorrect and, even if valid, some observations clearly refer to a different model. ]here is the link to page where amazon themselves sell this item (although it is not dvd multiregion) :panasonic blu-ray recorder with freeview play and 4k ultra hd up-scalingi already own a bwt700 and bwt740 which are earlier ‘iterations’ of this panasonic genre and have a similar range of features, but with each model new (often very significant ) features are added but usually a feature or 2 is removed – and (of course ) it’s usually something i found useful i try and stick to panasonic units as i use panasonic cameras/camcorders, so playback via their sd cards is easy and these blu-ray units, for example, support the fantastic quality ’50p progressive’ avchd video footage i can take on them. A good ‘rule of thumb’ for panasonic hdd/blu-rays units is ‘bdt’ is a player only, ‘pwt’ is a player and hdd recorder but does not record to blu-ray/dvd disc and ‘bwt’ are the ‘biggie’ units which play/record to most media (with differing/occasional limitations eg no support for dvd-ram, record to hdd requires disc ‘registration’ which limits the ability to play recordings elsewhere). It’s important to ‘spot’ those differences as sometimes the product description can include the terms hd/blu-ray and then ‘recorder’/’player’ without being 100% clear which of those media can or can’t be recorded to. So, to check the unit specification/features/’desirability’ for you it is essential to download/peruse the user guide – that way you can confirm, for example, the connections it has, what media it supports and whether the functions are all you require/expect. The basics of what this (surprisingly small/light) unit will do are :1. Play blu-ray and dvds – including 3d blu-ray.

A bit slower than older model.

A great picture, but there is no searchable epg with the ability to search for upcoming programmes and films – that would have been a deal breaker for me and had i researched this machine better, i probably wouldn’t have purchased it. It all seems to be about catching up on previously broadcast programmes. I was spoiled rotten by the venerable tivo series 1 with its fantastic epg, which is effectively no longer supported unless you are good with computer programming (i’m not), and we are unable to receive virgin tivo. The panasonic epg also extreeeemely slow to refresh.
