Panasonic DMR-E500H 400GB DVD Recorder


Recommended Posts



The new Panasonic DMR-E500H w/400GB HD is being released October 5th for $3299.

It can burn a 1Hr DVDr in 57seconds.

Also the new Pioneer DVR-920H-S should be coming soon to w/400GB HD and Firewire to.

I emailed Panasonic Yesterday (5th October) and got this reply today -

Dear Patrick,

The DMR-E500H has not yet been released but it is on its way!

I am unable to give you an ETA as this will be reliant and may be affected by other means outside the hands of Panasonic (E.g. Quality control etc).

The recommended retail price will be $3629.00 I hope this has helped with your query.

Regards,

Monique Castle

Panasonic Australia

Just for your Info!

Cheers

Patrick

FYI there won't be an intermediate model between the $1599 rrp E85H and the $3629 rrp 500H in the immediate future.  :blink:

Well the price at Myer for one of these is $3299. So I am guessing that that is the RRP.

And a stupid move by Panasonic, not putting a DV port on the 85H, so if someone wants a Hard Drive player with a DV port they have to spend $3299. The 85H should have one, as the 55 does.

Nice little bit of BS there by Panasonic. Ii cannnot burn a 1 hour DVD (4.7GB) in 57 secconds. What it actually means is it can burn 1 hours worth of VIDEO that has been recorded at the lowest possible quality setting in 57 secconds, which means 1 hour of video equates to only a few hundred megabytes of data which is why the burn is so quick.

Hardly rocket science.

On another note, why is this heap of crap so expensive? 2 brand new 200GB HDD's would cost about $400-$450, retail! Sounds like a complete ripoff.
