Summary: My kids have DVD players and I thought it would be a good idea to buy one for us adults. We were going on a month long trip to Florida, and I thought it would be a good idea to keep one of us entertained. Well, it was a great size, not too big, not too small, and the picture clarity is great. Of course, it's slightly better with Blu-Ray than standard DVD's. It's runs fast and is fairly easy to use.
Summary: I purchased this unit for my son and long car drives. It has a very impressive picture quality especially when playing a blu ray disc. The sound is much better than our last portable player. Only lacking a video output and we would like a slightly larger screen. What we do like is the dynamic picture quality which makes each video more "rich" in texture and color. A good little unit all around for the price.
Summary: I thought I was taking a Big chance purchasing this player. I have not been disappointed. The unit is easy to operate, and the picture is outstanding! It plays all formats. I also like the remote; it`s handy when I`m laying back in my desk chair. The price was right. If you are looking for a portable Blu-ray be sure to check this one out!
Summary: We bought this BD player for our 2 1/2 year old son so he could watch his favorite movies on trips...he has some movies as DVDs and some are BD only but I didn't want to pay $300-$400 for a BD player...so I waited. I bought this one on Amazon about a week ago for $149...and based on reviews, I was hoping for the best but bracing myself for lower quality.
Summary: nice screen and remote - plus how the screen moves forward is a very nice option! Only thing that I thought that the Blue-Ray player had or should have was an HDMI output to connect to a flat screen/plasma t.v. and that would have been the icing on the cake!! Other than that, it's a great player!
Summary: This portable Blu-Ray player was exactly what I was looking for and wanted. No video/audio out jacks, no problem. I wanted a PORTABLE Blu-Ray player for a great price and that is exactly what I found. No high-definition screen? You could have fooled me. At 8.9" how would you know anyway? Great picture quality and a great price. I didn't want to spend $750 or more for a portable Blu-Ray player and I don't see the need to.
Summary: I did not pay attention to all the other features before I bought, but now I wish I had. I was only interested that it could play blu-ray/dvds and was portable which was the only thing I had wanted it for. I've been watching this and many other blu-ray players for some time now. I've been watching the price. This is the cheapest price I've seen it. $180 or so... The blu-ray quality is amazing.
Summary: Bought this player for non-tech savvy older parents so they can show off their pictures from SD cards and picture CD's. Simple to use, no frills, straight up player of discs and SD cards. All BD features and extras can be used on this unit. Screen resolution is excellent for Blu-Ray, DVD, and JPEGs. You can definitely see the difference in resolution compared to a regular Sony or Toshiba portable DVD. Quick response menu and loading of discs and SD cards.
Summary: I received this Panasonic portable Blu Ray (and mutli-purpose disc) player. After purchasing I watched one of my many favorite movies but on Blu Ray and it looks as it does when you see it on your big screen, at home! I am a big movie fanatic so I love and enjoy watching movies anywhere! I currently own a sister portable dvd player with very few similarities, but this Blu Ray player can not be compared to at all.
Summary: Amazon is now selling this unit for $179-199. Sure it has no video outputs, comparable units with them are $350. If you want a portable Blu-ray player with wi-fi + video outputs you are looking at $500 (IPAD and netbook territory). I already have a PS3 and a sony stand alone blu-ray so I could care less about the video output. I am using this for traveling or personal viewing so it fits my needs just great. At $179 I bought two of them, one is a gift.
