Summary: We were extremely satisfied with this DVD player. It has very good headrest mounting system, so our long car trips became fun for our at the time 2-year-old. It hasn't been even two years since we got it, we started hjaving troubles with it. The DVD wouldn't strat giving us an error message (H03). We sent the unit to the authorized service center, where it was refurbished (or replaced with a refurbished unit). A month later - the same problem.
Summary: Purchased this to use on the airplane but I am a bit disappointed. The battery life is marginal. I have to increase the speed of playback to watch an entire movie of around 2 hours. I decreased the brightness as suggested but then the picture is difficult to view. Other than the battery life, the unit works great!
Summary: After a thorough reserach on portable DVD players, I bought the Panasonic DVD-LS80 primarily because they have pretty good reviews. Was pretty impressed with the picture quality and the anti-skip protection. A remote control could have been a good addition, especialy for the price. The regretful decision to purchase this DVD player however came when the audio speakers gave up on me..
Summary: The form factor, weight and user interface are excellent. The ability to position the screen directly over the machine makes it more enjoyable to watch sitting in coach on United even when the passenger in front of me reclines their seat. Biggest complaint: the battery wouldn't play a whole 2-hour movie. Very dissapointing.
Summary: On The first Panasonic DVD player that I received the picture screen would go on for about 5 seconds and then turn off by itself. Then you couldnt shut the DVD player off by ON/OFF . I returned this product to Amazon and they were great in replacing it . However, I must say that the picture quality is not that great as the screen is set to the highest level of Brightness and it is still quite dark.
Summary: Just purchased this dvd player and was disappointed that the fully charged battery kept dying after 2 hours at medium brightness. I called panasonic and they said that I have to significantly lower the brightness to even get more time. Needless to say I travel quite a bit on airlines and therefore unless I spend $100+ to get another battery with more time I will not get the quality and time that I expected.
