Panasonic DMR-HWT130EB review

Key features
  • PVR
  • Freeview HD

Reviewed

A PVR from household-name Panasonic, the DMR-HWT130EB has a brushed-metal finish and certainly looks great. The lengthy specification list includes access to Freeview+ content, the Panasonic Remote Recording Service and a hard drive big enough to store more than 250 hours of standard-definition TV. We sent one to our lab to find out if it is as good as it sounds. Read our review to find out.
