It contains a 500GB hard drive available from Panasonic that records up to 450 hours of content. Not a fan of deleting stuff? No problem, once its full you can take it out and put in another.
Oh but it doesn’t stop there, the BR30 will also support BDXL discs which can lead up to a minimum of an additional 80 hours of video as well as being capable of burning regular Blu-ray and DVD!
