Has anyone had any experience with a DVD recorder Panasonic DMR-EX475VK(Costco only)?

I am looking at a Panasonic DMR-EX475VK. It is a DVD recorder and I think you can only buy it from Costco. The unit cost is $299.99.

Has any one had any experience with this unit?

Can this unit work with my Dish Network DISHDVR510? I would like to record a show onto a DVD using the Panasonic DVD recorder.

Thank you.
