My flight friend

S. Meador, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • 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 day I bought it!

has skip buffer and good zoom capability

Chris C., Amazon
10 June 2009
  • 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. This really was a pain so I started looking for a player that had an anti-skip buffer like you find in most CD players. This was the only model that I could find that had it!

Great DVD player for price

Maurine D. Baker, Amazon
30 December 2008
  • 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.

A Good Value

G. Peacock, Amazon
29 November 2008
  • 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. However, if you want to see it brighter you waste more battery power. We had to use the car charger on our way back.

Reliable and visually impressive

Rocinante, Amazon
16 September 2008
  • 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.

sucks

C. Murazane, Amazon
15 July 2008
  • 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. There's a catch and that is you have to turn down the brightness and/or contrast for the battery to last and turning it down makes it look real bad. No one watches a dvd like that in real life.

Pricey... but what value a quiet car journey?!

  • 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!), it was quite an investment, but it does come very well packaged, with an easy to understand manual, and its sharp black finish makes it very pleasing to the eye.
  • Pros: Superb picture, Easy to use
  • Cons: Expensive, but worth it? !

one of the best

  • Excerpt: This portable DVD player is the perfect size and weight to carry around with you so you can watch it through out the day. I recently purchased it for £150 but have found you can now buy it for around £146. I'm not sure if I would advise you to buy it as the latest gadgets including the ipodtouch do more such as store DVDs for around £165. It would be better to get an ipodtouch than this. Despite this the DVD player has a very good picture and sound quality.
  • Pros: amazing video quality
  • Cons: there is better technology out there
