Hi

Im looking into new panasonic and maybe new sony when it came out but what are the good and bad point of those two machine?

I'm not bother about DivX or sd card or even usb - it seem hopeless to get one but do want dv in. So really just want to know what I should go for?

Thanks

Hi

Other basic factors may have a bearing. The Panasonic's only have digital tuners which is no good if you don't have Freeview reception yet.

The Sony's have both analogue and digital tuners.

The Panasonics have slightly better sound quality and better editing facilities.

The Sony's have better satellite control if that is your main source.

thanks - I do have freeview recption so not worry about the analogue and not too worry about the satelite control either so I guess I should go for panasonic dmr-ex78 - I don't think I need any bigger than 250gb.

Well if you don't need DivX/USB/SD, and if you don't really need a jukebox, then you could get the DMR-EX768 for 100£ less than the EX78 ;)

thanks but I just worry the 160gb may not be enough for me and I got lots of video (don't mean to fix on 250gb) that I been trying to get rid off but I got no editing to cut out the advert on my panasonic dmr-45 vhs/dvd recorder. Where before I can on older panasonic dmr-30 but currys lost it and I have to get new one and that annoy me because that they got rid of pause on dvd while I can fast forward the video to next stage and then unpause the dvd to cont to fix on dvd in fr mode.
