Summary: upon arrival device driver software wasn't up to date, causing the dvd player not to have any sound via hdmi ,,, panasonic tech didn't resolve issue,,, i figured it out on my own thru panasonics' device (s58) web page & notified panasonic to include this info in their support criteria,,, before...
Summary: I bought this player specifically to play UK-region DVDs (the only thing my PS3 won't do) - and it does the job admirably for the price. Note that you will need to get & install the latest firmware from Panasonic (burn from ISO to CD and 'play' in the unit) - then making it Region Free is a snap.
Summary: It was easy to set up, and has a great picture quality. But like some other reviewers, I was unable to get it to play DivX AVI or MPG4 that are listed in the online advertising and in the user's guide.
Summary: Bought this player to replace my Philips Up Converter Player. I gave the Philips away because it was slow starting up and had a few glitches in its mode of operation. This model makes the old saying, "You get what you pay for" very true.
