I recently got a brand new Panasonic Blu-Ray player and I wanted to tell you all about it! It’s a Panasonic DMR-PWT550EB (if you care about that type of thing!). It plays Blu-Ray discs (as well as regular dvds) but not only that, it has built in Freeview AND recorder. This beautiful looking dvd player has fantastic functions, all-in-one and for anyone who doesn’t have Sky (or something similar) this is a great idea for watching freeview channels and being able to record them – as well as the obvious – watching blu rays and dvds.
As all our TV, stand, X-box One etc are black, this dvd player fits in perfectly. It’s stylish and modern in design, light weight but still feels sturdy. Nearly all functions are via the remote control, with the box itself being very simple. The DVD/Blu-Ray functions are fairly standard, but having the built in freeview, really gives this box something special.
The Freeview Play menu and interface is really simple and easy to use. You can watch programs from the last 7 days, as well as the current live shows. You can record programs, both from the box itself or even via the internet while you’re out. There are loads of great features and while my TV isn’t 4K, it supports this and full HD. Again, my TV doesn’t support it, but I believe it’s also suitable for 3D dvds and can even convert 2D ones into 3D.
This Blu-ray/dvd/freeview/recorder is really everything in one and with a nice look, simple use and good brand, it really is one to recommend!
