Default Review: Panasonic Blu-ray: Panasonic DMR-BW500 Blu-ray recorder

Note: *Not* available in US.

High-Def buffs who buy Panasonic's first Blu-ray recorder can have it all. It
lets you watch DVD and Blu-ray movies, transfer HD home movies to disc and
watch and record high-def television to DVD, Blu-ray or the built-in hard drive.

Unlike the early Blu-ray players, it's quiet and fast to load - although the
remote control and menu system can be over-complicated. The player supports
Blu-ray's BonusView standard for extra content but not the more advanced
BD-Live interactive standard for downloading extra content from the internet.

Under the bonnet are twin HD tuners, and you can do fancy tricks such as
pausing live TV and browsing an electronic program guide, though it isn't as
flexible and user-friendly as a TiVo. The Panasonic's generous 500GB hard
drive holds 62 hours of HD recordings, with three hours fitting on a 25GB
Blu-ray disc. HD recordings can also be compressed onto a standard DVD.
