Panasonic intros DMR-BR500, DMR-XW320 and DMR-XW120 HDD / Blu-ray recorders

Panasonic's got a set of all new recorders for us to drool over, and while they each include analog / digital tuners, only the crown jewel (that'd be the DMR-BR500) includes a 4x Blu-ray writer. Said unit also boasts a 250GB hard drive, UniPhier chip and MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 encoders. As for the 500GB DMR-XW320 and 250GB DMR-XW120, each of these stick with DVD / HDD recording, but look to feature all the other aforementioned niceties including support for Dolby True HD, DTS-HD and HDMI 1.3. No official word on price at the moment, but expect to pay a pretty penny when these land late next month (presumably in Japan).
