"These panasonic recorders die a quick death."1.0 starson by babey1n2
Pros: It still plays dvds.
Cons: this es20 is unreliable. Sometimes it will record and then it will not read its own burn. sometimes it will record, then it will not "finalize". so it will not play even on the same es20. gets worse
Summary: This es20s is unreliable. you have a 50 50 chance that it will, or will not, produce a playable dvd. at times it will record the dvd. you can get the disc out, look at it, it has been recorded.... you just will not be able to play it.... you will not be able "finalize" it... not even on the the same es20 that recorded it. it does get get continually worse. In the end you end up with just an expensive dvd player and, the possibility of recording successfully will fall to 1%.
