Summary: This is my 2nd DVD player, and it's the best one of all. I purchased this DVD player at the airport in 2008 and like it for the following reasons: 1 - user friendly 2 - compact to fit in a large purse 3 - lightweight 4 - rechargeable battery 5 - durable (I've had it 3 years) It's just as good as the...
Summary: I use one of these on an exercise machine to keep up with documentaries. For the past year I've been using a Sony DVP FX-820, but it would skip if A) I was playing content "late" in the disc (outer edge) or B) the exercise machine was vibrating more than usual.
Summary: Even with a "free"carrying case, this one is a disappointment. Find something else.
Pros: Screen size is nice, the fact that it plays multiple formats will probably come in handy. The combo 1/8" A/V plug can act as both an output and as an input! According to the manual, I haven't tried it yet, but I plan on piping video from my iPhone into it to test it out. We'll see how it works
Cons: The resolution is really quite bad: 480x234 as listed in the manual. the vertical pixelation is extremely apparent playing a standard DVD and really takes away from my viewing pleasure.

Summary: The box was badly damaged when it arrived but I have to say our delivery service has a habit of this. The player was in good condition however and my relatives who received it as a gift are thrilled. The picture is great and it's easy to use. Thanks
Summary: I bought this primarily for the hinge design, due to the fact that this replaces a Best Buy brand (insignia) because it failed at the swivel hinge. We recently used this new DVD player on a 2 hr. road trip. The battery was fully charged. The picture quality is decent.
Summary: The other people didn't read the package: it says 6 hours playback when the brightness of the screen is dimmed. On an airplane or train with the shades down it is perfectly visible on the moonlight setting.
Summary: Warning. The battery does not last 6 hours. It barely last 3 hours. Panasonic use to be good while I was growing up, but now it's almost like false advertising saying the battery last 6 hours.
Excerpt: OVERVIEW I bought the LS83 DVD player manufactured by Panasonic, not because I am a shocking parent, but to make some of our longer family journeys a little more peaceful... At £ 160.00, (with a little change!
