"Almost great...but frustrating!"2.0 starson by frydwansky
Pros: Ease of use and copy quality is excellent
Cons: Firmware is buggy...hangs on finalization and poor editing
Summary: I am converting years of VHS and 8mm archived tapes to dvd. This unit seemed to have it all until...locking up once a dvd is copied but not finalized. Needed to unplug the unit to recycle. I am exchanging it to try AGAIN as most features work well and the copy quality is excellent.
But I think that Panasonic needs a firmware fix. I'd wait until a model upgrade is released. Must downrate from a 9 to a 4.
