Details
DMR-EA38VK
Features

Progressive Scan DVD Recorder with VHS VCR, 1080p Up-Conversion, HDMI Simple Connection, VIERALink 8482;, SD Memory Card Slot, USB Terminal and Super Multi-Format Recording & Playback

Features

1080p Up-Conversion
By interpolating video data using proprietary algorithms, SD format data is up-converted to 1080 x 1920p HD format video data. This conversion increases the richness of the original data by almost six fold, producing the highest possible image quality when viewing content on a large-screen HDTV.

Easy Operation with VIERALink 8482;
Connect your Panasonic DVD recorder to your VIERA flat-panel HDTV via an HDMI cable, and the TV channel setting information is automatically downloaded to the recorder. Once the Auto Preset Download is complete, the DVD recorder will keep whichever TV channel you're watching as its receiving channel. This means you can record the program you're watching by just pressing the Record button on the VIERA remote. With VIERALink 8482;, you don't have to worry about setting the recorder to the right channel every time you want to record something.

Expansion of Usages
The Panasonic DMR-EA38VK DVD recorder is equipped with an SD Memory Card slot and USB terminal, which makes it easy to view photos from your digital camera. Just slip the SD card into the slot or use the cable to connect the camera to the USB terminal, and you're ready to enjoy a spectacular big-screen slideshow with family and friends. You can even listen to music recorded onto a USB device while viewing your photos.

Universal Design
All of our DVD recorder models are designed in compliance with Panasonic's Universal Design principles. Frequently used buttons (Power, Open/Close) are located at the top of the main unit to make them easier to see when the unit is placed in a rack and you need to look down when operating it. Both the remote control and graphical user interface (GUI) were designed for easy use by everyone, based on the results of a Panasonic survey.

DMR-EA38VK is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great picture and sound, remote could be better For the most part i really like this unit, it is a panasonc, the picture and sound quality are really amazing for both dvds and tv broadcast. Some minor cons are: For watching a DVD the remote buttons are may be quite confusing for anyone who hasn't read the manual, because the "Sub Menu" button takes you to the control panel for the unit's internal settings. The "Direct Navigator" button is the one to press to get to the main menu of a DVD. No other dvd deck, including my other more basic Panasonic dvd player has a "Direct Navigator" button for that purpose. It sometimes takes a second for the tuner to find the next channel when watching tv, though i think that may be because it is a digital and analog tuner. On a more minor note, It is disappointing that you don't have the option of recording a digital broadcast channel to a vhs tape. (yes i know dvd's are better) The deck is clearly capable of converting digital to analog, otherwise it wouldn't have the capability of transferring digital dvd's to analog vhs tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money Just bought this a few weeks ago and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new VCR or just a DVD recorder. For the price, the value is outstanding and far exceeds expectations. When it is running, it is extremely quiet and you barely notice a DVD or tape playing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DVDs are incredible Pros: 1. DVD quailty using an HDMI cable to upconvert to 1080p on our 50in Plasma looks perfect. 2. Near silent operation 3. copied DVD from VHS also upconverts. 4. Very affordable Cons: 1. Manual is vague. 2. know way to tell that its actually upconverting to 1080p. 3. no sleep timer. 4. if you set the TVs sleep timer and are watching a VHS when the tape rewinds it starts over and turns the tv back on. 5. Firmware updates are not there. 6. sometimes the remote and or panel become non responsive, you have to power off the unit by unplugging to reset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best purchases This product is amazing. I am addicted to Panasonic quality anyway, having used a Panasonic VCR for several years with no repairs necessary - but I have really enjoyed using this new VCR to DVD recorder. I had some old VCR tapes of family events that I have converted to DVD's. I have shared them with family members and received comments - like - "this is the best gift I have ever received" and these DVD's are "priceless". I heartily recommend this product.
