Apparently Panasonic has only one goal now: to keep us awash in DVD recorders.
Weve lost track of how many theyve brought out in the past year or so, but they just dropped another five on us today. Their best of the high-end line, the DMR-E500H, comes with an Ethernet port for hooking it up to a home network and has a built-in 400GB hard drive that can store up 709 hours of TV (which is basically as much television as some people watch in an entire year).
The rest of the line up doesnt lack any punch either: the dual-tuner DMR-E330H has a 250GB drive, while the DMR-E220H and DMR-E87H both have 160GB drives (oh, and the DMR-E220H has dual TV tuners, just like the DMR-E330H). The DMR-E250V adds both a VHS recorder and a 160GB drive to the mix. We should also mention that these are all coming out in Japan, initially at least.
