A Big Disappointment -- And a Big Step Backwards from Panasonic

Summary: There was a time when Panasonic made, arguably, the best portable DVD players. That time has passed. I'm surprised that so many reviewers praise the picture quality of this model -- it just ain't there. Having used earlier Panasonic portables, maybe I was expecting too much. In any event, I got too little.
Summary: i usually read the bad reviews first since the good reviews might be written by employees of the product but i should have listened to the one star review. the screen image is NOT sharp, all the edges are indeed pixilated, and overly contrasty. and since this is about viewing a movie i have to give it low marks. also if you view at a moderate angle you lose the image. there is no remote, and if you tilt the screen you cant get at some of the controls.
Summary: i bought this solely on the reviews here on amazon. nice little player, easy to use but the screen as far as i'm concerned is pants. have tried various settings but the edges are jagged. no better than the cheap chinese makes i looked at. it does however feel better built. UPDATE: I think I mis-judged this slightly.
