First, let me say this - There is no perfect "basic" DVD recorder. (at least not for under $200) Different models have pros and cons which need to be weighed carefully. But I think this Panasonic is the best of the bunch. I bought this recorder after trying out the Samsung DVD-R135. (which I would.

First, let me say this - There is no perfect "basic" DVD recorder. (at least not for under $200) Different models have pros and cons which need to be weighed carefully. But I think this Panasonic is the best of the bunch.

I bought this recorder after trying out the Samsung DVD-R135. (which I would say is this players closest competitor.)

The DVD-R135 was very nice (great DVD menu creation!)but I just couldn't get past the lousy LP recording mode. Many programs I record are longer than 2 hours (like football games) so I HAD to have a recorder that captured decent quality into the 4 hour range. So after reading other reviews, I gave the Panasonic a try.

4.) Couldn't use the "Commerical Skip" on DVDs burned on other recorders or at the "FR" custom speed.

These missing items are particularly frustrating because they are standard features on just about all other recorders.

1.) Good LP recording mode - which means you can record for 4 hours and still have decent quality. (other players have lousy LP quality) Think about this for a minute - its a big deal.

Its also got flexible recording. This allows the recorder to match the recording time to the best quality possible. (The Samsung also has this great feature)

2.) Records on almost everything - DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAMyou name it, it records on it. FYI - DVD-RAM is a bit like having a computer hard drive on your disc - you can rewrite it almost endless times, move chapters/data, edit, delete, etc. And its very reliable - disc errors are unlikely. (The Samsung only records on DVD-R and DVD-RW)

3.) Plays almost everything - Regular DVDs, Dual Layered DVDs, VCDs, etc. I've seen some mention that "homebrew" DVDs (meaning DVDs recorded on another player or PC) might not play, but I haven't had any problems. This includes DVDs burned on 3 different PCs)

In fact, I had a DVD burned off on my PC that has always had a "rough spot" on it. It played fine on my PC but skipped on my old player and the Samsung I tried. The Panasonic DMR-ES25S played the "rough spot" without missing a beat!

4.) Average remote, but good for entering text - The remote takes some getting used to but its better than the Samsung remote. I especially like the recessed directional control for moving around. Its great for entering text, which took forever on the Samsung.

The Samsung DVD-R135 has great menus, menu creation formatting, and all of the missing items from my Panasonic "bad" list.

BUT the Panasonic DMR-ES25S scores big with a solid LP mode, huge Disc compatibility (playing and recording)and a better remote.

In its price range, the Panasonic was the only player that had everything that I HAD to have in a DVD recorder. So I can live with the few missing features.

And I keep thinking about how it breezed through that rough spot on my burned DVD while the other players choked on it.
