    Good PQ
    Easy to Use -> Navigate

    Both machines are easy to use and offer similar PQ (when dubbing to DVDR at lengths over 2hrs the Panasonic offers significant advantage in PQ due to maintaining high res). 'Timeslip' is roughly equivalent on both units.

    The Panasonic has the edge in editting though without a doubt. The Panasonic's provide various tricks and a slick interface for accurate edits either by non-destructive playlists or partial erase. On the HDD the Sony only offers Partial Erase (A-B Edit) and this is further hampered by the controls. There is also no Divide function - the absence of which you should not under-estimate.

    If your after general DVD recorder advice have a look at the 'Which DVD Recorder?' link in my signature!

    If you need to archive 2hr+ recordings from HDD to DVD, the Sony is not the answer. The editing functionality is extremely limited.

    If you just want excellent picture quality to watch a recording a few times and then erase it, the Sony is a good choice. DVD playback is also very good.

    I had to make the same decision as you a couple of months ago.

    I finally decided on the Panasonic for the reasons listed by Rasczak. :thumbsup:

    Buy the E95. You won't be disappointed. ;)
