Panasonic DMR-PWT520EB. Second in line to the Panasonic DMR-BWT720, this 3D blu-ray player carries many of it's bigger brothers traits. With the ability to play DivX HD and MKV files, plus the inclusion of the new and highly regarded Panasonic P4HD chipset means this player cannot only play the most up to date programme files but it will also, as near as possible, up-convert them to stunning HD.
As a player, the Panasonic DMR-PWT520EB will play old DVD's and CD's, together with Blu-ray and stunning 3D blu-rays. You also get a massive 1TB HDD built in for storing your favourite TV programmes from it's freeviewHD Tuner.
If you enjoy storing photo's on an SD or USB memory stick, then you can just pop it into one of the relevant inputs, bringing your images to life for all to see on your TV.
Panasonic have also included a brand new 'picture in picture' EPG and function menu system that lets you watch what you were viewing whilst searching for another programme. As the DMR-PWT520 also includes twin freeviewHD tuners, you can also record one channel whilst watching another or even record on two channels whilst watching something you have recorded earlier. Now that is very convenient!
The PWT520 also includes Panasonic's Server and client system, which if being paired with another Panasonic recorder or player with the server and client, or just client capabilities, you can stream programmes you have already recorded to another player fixed in your home network, with a simple touch of a button.
As a central hub for controlling all your media needs, the Panasonic DMR-PWT520 certainly is one of the best we have seen. So, if you are looking for a 'one stop' solution, the DMR-PWT520 is the product for you!
