  • Summary: I upgraded to this (hooked up via HDMI) from an older Toshiba player with progressive scan, hooked up via component cables and I had trouble telling the differences in picture quality. The upconvert seems to do something but not as much as I thought it would.
  • Pros: I have not had any problems with this DVD player. It offers an array of settings to adjust picture and sound quality.
  • Cons: None

CAUTION: NEVER BUY THIS UNIT!

Kelvin N., Newegg
27 January 2007
  • Summary: IF anything you buy Panasonic ever malfunctions, send it back to Newegg! I listened to Panasonic's advise and to date, I haven't enjoyed the high-def upconversion I was expecting despite buying several HDMI cables, extensive testing of unit on other high-def TVs...
  • Pros: Newegg delivered unit on 26th dec, HDMI port failed 2nd day, Panasonic customer advised to send to service center in town, took it there on 01/02/07, replacement unit came after a whole 3 wks [01/25/07], but had dead HDMI port right out of the box!
  • Cons: Took back to service centre, centre claimed to have no independent HDMI cables!! An official Panasonic service center! I felt very embarrassed and called Panasonic who now told me to ship unit directly to exchange center in Seattle Washington.

Best DVD player I have purchased yet

James J., Newegg
5 January 2007
  • Summary: I record shows from my HTPC, so there's no chapters and many of the pros I like benefit me because of the way that the DVDs are burned. I need to read the manual, there's more to learn about this thing, but ultimately you don't really have to, it just works.
  • Pros: When it's done playing a DVD it doesn't just sit there in the player spinning the disk. It stops the DVD. I go to sleep with a DVD in and don't have to wear out the player and hear a spinning disk. Everytime I play around with this unit I find something else I've always wanted. If you hit the fas...
  • Cons: I would like to have had a tutorial or something, maybe on DVD? To teach you about how to use it better. I'd definately buy again.

  • Summary: I record regular tv to disk with my Happauge, burn to a dvd-rw and play back with this. Much better than regular TV.

  • Cons: None really. Takes some setup. No hdmi cable.

  • Summary: I bought this to go along with my new LCD and I'm glad I did. This player has a large number of options for setup on both audio and video. Movies look fantastic. I can't imagine being able to get much better of a picture off of a standard DVD.
  • Pros: HD up-conversion over HDMI.
  • Cons: No major cons. An eject button on the remote would have been nice.

haven't received product just correction

David F., Newegg
17 October 2006
  • Summary: From reading other reviews it sounds like it has the most features for the price.
  • Pros: The DVD-S52S does NOT have HD upconversion just to clarify making this the DVD-S52K a much better choice if you have an HDTV.
  • Cons: can't say hasn't arrived yet...
