How to make a four hour airplane ride with a four yr old easier
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We bought this portable Panasonic DVD-LA95 player four years ago as we were preparing to go a a long (4 hour+) plane trip with our young kids. It has a seven inch screen and an add on battery pack. At the time it was $799, now a similar model could probably be purchased for less than $250. Although this model recently started to act up and be less reliable, it has served us well on many plane flights and vacations.
Panasonic DVD LA 95: A bit of a mixed bag; some good points, some bad.
30 March 2012
Summary: I've had this a few years now and I still regularly use it, despite it's bad points. But let's start with the good: - Good picture quality, this is the main reason I keep using it. - Somewhat simple to use, once you get the hang of it e.g. it has two menu buttons: menu and top menu which is confusing at first. - Good volume, with headphones (which are not included). I wouldn't use it without them, the sound is just ok otherwise. - Light and compact.
Pros: Good picture quality, good sound with headphones, light and compact.
Cons: Battery not great, screen not huge, volume not good without headphones.

Nice and small it fits into a bag no problem at all. The in car power adapter supllied with is even better as you dont have to worry about the batteries running out.

Pros: small compact and easy to use
Cons: speakers can get rattly depending on the film
Excerpt: "...you cannot buy here.I contacted Panasonic direct, no joy there just advised me to contact the case manufacturer but no-one not even panasonic know who this is. Finally the speakers.Poor quality for this model i have however bought travel speakers at £52 (with p&p) hell of a difference, a must. Panasonic do not make a dedicated seperate speaker system but these sony do the trick adequatly. ...
Pros: EASE OF USE WITH ON - SCREEN MENU . GOOD VISUALS SELF EXPLANATORY
Cons: THE DISADVATAGES TO THIS LITTLE BEAUTY ARE QUITE APPARANT WHEN YOU COME TO OPPERATE THE SYSTEM .
Excerpt: "This is my personal opinion. Laptop DVD players are a great idea that have yet to fully come to fruition. While a grand is perhaps justifiable for a business, its not so tempting for a luxury, most useful for killing time on long journeys. A decent paperback provides similar distraction and can be had for a fiver. However this portable player was a present to me so that may be one of the reasons why I have grown to love it even more. I think there ...
Pros: Looks sexy, Easy to use, Lots of features, Excellent Picture
Summary: Seit Beginn der Einführung von portablen DVD Spielern 1997 auf den US-amerikanischen Markt besitze ich diese kleinen movie gadgets. Zunächst mit kleinen 5 Zoll bzw. danach 7 Zoll LCD's ausgestattet habe ich nun auf Panasonics 9 Zoll gewechselt. Was mir als erstes auffiel war das absolut perfekte Design, Ausdruck höchster Ingenieur Kunst. In Punkto Design kann man das Gerät nur als Referenz ansehen, besser geht es wohl kaum.
